TBUX is excited to have members Anitra Pavka and Joey deVilla as our speakers for our first meetup of 2020!

About the Meetup
The latest version of Apple’s iOS operating system has many new features that make it more usable for people with special needs. This presentation will give you a tour of Apple’s assistive technologies, show some new tools that will help you to create more accessible software, and even demonstrate how you can write mobile apps that make use of these new accessibility features!
