Web Accessibility Workshop

Who can use your websites? Are they accessible to as many people as possible?

Web accessibility is the process of making it easy for people with disabilities to use your sites. Come to this workshop to learn more about designing with accessibility in mind—and building a better web experience for everyone.

This two-hour workshop will focus on general design principles, with some hands-on exercises. It is helpful to have some knowledge of HTML and CSS. It will be an intimate class and is limited to 10-12 students. You should plan to bring a laptop, a water bottle, a snack and some headphones to work along with the class.

About the teacher: Catarina Yamamoto is a UX developer at Tamman Technologies. She thinks coding is fun and is happy to share this passion with other women. She has been coding for a long time, for back and front end, but is really in love with the presentation layer (visual, usability, accessibility and UX). When she is not coding, blogging at etrecos and/or searching, she likes to dance and travel.

    I'm glad to hear that a lot of people is excited about the subject! Can we hope in the future to be named the US City with most accessible sites?

    Thanks again for a great class! I really enjoyed this workshop a lot and would recommend it to anyone in the web design/development field. It has really helped me to rethink how I should be designing sites to make them accessible for everyone.
