Details

Inclusive Design is something that goes beyond accessibility, it is about building things whether they are street fixtures, apps or websites that reframe disability around mismatched human interactions instead of a personal health condition. In this session, you will learn what inclusive design is, why it is important for designing and developing anything.

About our speaker:
Tommy Lewis is a Technical Evangelist Manager at Microsoft Canada who at 8 years old thought that there was a frog apocalypse happening in his backyard. It turned out that it was just the rain made all the frogs come out and hop around. Tommy is also very much an advocate of technology coexistence and thinks designers must look past dogma so that we can create a better future. He is also bent on eradicating all versions of Internet Explorer from the planet and will never stop, never.
