Let's do an accessibility audit of wpldn.uk together!

Following on from last month's talks regarding why accessible websites are a must, it's worth knowing how to do a technical accessibility audit. Given the time constraints, this session will be a high level audit and what better example to use than the WPLDN website!

WordPress at the United Nations.

"WordPress at the United Nations" is about my experience doing WordPress consulting at the United Nations Head Quarters in Manhattan, New York.

The UN is a rather interesting organisation in how it uses platforms like WordPress and Drupal so I’d love to share my experiences with the WordPress community.

Presented by Wasim Juned (https://twitter.com/wasimjuned). Wasim founded his company during the dotcom boom to help businesses with web and mobile systems.

Since then he's worked on projects for organisations such as:

• United Nations


• World Gold Council and SPDR Gold Shares

• Fotango (later bought by Canon Europe)

• Arcadia
