Calling all Austin developers, designers, accessibility, usability, and any other high-tech professionals. If you have an interest in accessibility and inclusive design, we want you in this group. Would you like to network with like-minded professionals that are passionate about inclusive design? Would you like to learn how to make your work more accessible? Do you work in accessibility and want to share your knowledge? We want you in this group.
The WAI is the Web Accessibility Initiative of the W3C. Most developers know W3C as the standards-maker for the web, the folks who define valid CSS, HTML and such. The WAI is the division where web accessibility standards are made, tested, and maintained in a process of global collaboration. Sharron Rush co-chairs the Education and Outreach Working Group of WAI and will join the MeetUp to share the 2018 redesign of the WAI website. She will help us learn to identify and use all of the free resources that are maintained to support best practice in web accessibility. We will walk through the new website and see highlights of new and/or improved resources for the development of policy, standards conformance, testing, and more. Join us for lively discussion and information about how you can contribute to the ongoing work of WAI.
