Cleveland Accessibility March Get-Together... and Book Club!
Spring is in the air (or at least it's spring-adjacent)! Let's enjoy some good food and great beer at Market Garden Brewery, which is located next door to West Side Market. This casual get-together for #A11yCLE is our quarterly social event. Come hang out with fellow #accessibility experts and advocates. Talk shop, ask questions, and get to know the group!
...And Book Club!
We'll be discussing the book: A Web for Everyone by Sarah Horton and Whitney Quesenbery.
This book gives practical advice and examples of how to create sites that everyone can use, and uses individual personas to focus attention on the essential idea that accessibility begins and ends with people.
