Hello WordPress Users,

Hope you all well :-)

If you have missed our previous events, don't despair. You can find the slides of what we covered so far here

We are pleased to welcome back Graham Armfield with a full on talk about accessibility.

'So, How Do I Know if my WordPress Website is Accessible?' presentation is the one with the yes/no questions that anyone can check on their own website. There's not much that's deeply technical in this one, but it covers a lot of the most important accessibility issues.

Graham Armfield is a Web Accessibility Consultant with his own company Coolfields Consulting. He works with organisations to help them improve the accessibility of their websites - by testing the websites for accessibility, and advising the designers and developers on how to fix issues found. He's also a WordPress developer, and has built many accessible WordPress websites for clients. He's an active member of the Make WordPress Accessible Team and has spoken on accessibility to many WordCamps and other WordPress meetups.

Please don't forget to bring your own laptop along, WiFi will be available.

Of course there will also be plenty of time for you to ask questions and network with all other WordPress users.

The event will be held at the Hub Westminster, 1st floor New Zealand House, 80 Haymarket, Westminster, London, SW1Y 4TE, which is conveniently located between Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square.

One of us will welcome you on the ground floor where you'll be asked to sign in and collect your pass. Please wear your pass at all times since we are part of a government building. Then make your way to the 1st floor via the lift (not the stairs, those lead to Narnia) and then follow the signs to the Strategy lab.

If you have any questions, here are two forums that can help you out. One About Meetups Discussion and one for WordPress Support & Help

Last but not least, we are building some resources for you to consume, help yourself here under the "Table of Contents"

Look forward to seeing you soon.


PS: If you sign up and then you can't make it to the event, please make sure you change your RSVP to let others on the waiting list to attend. We will keep a record of whose of you that will prevent others from taking part and we reserve the right to deny you access to future events, sorry.
