As you know, we are fortunate to have Gian Wild http://www.gianwild.com/about visiting us from Australia. Based on your votes, she will speak to us on mobile accessibility.

Here's the abstract of her mobile talk. Gian will speak about how to make your mobile sites accessible. WCAG2 was written before mobile devices were ubiquitous, and there are some accessibility issues unique to the mobile format, such as lack of keyboard, lack of mouse hover and reduced screen size. Gian will be talking about the most common problems and how you can avoid them.

Many thanks to StubHub who will be hosting us and providing light snacks and soft drinks.

The agenda is as follows:

6:00 - 6:30 Networking,

6:30 - 6:45 Welcome and Intros,

6:45 - 7:45 Talk and Q&A, and

7:45 - 8:00 Announcements and Closing.

Important: I need to provide atendee first and last names to building security two business days ahead of the event. No same-day walk-ins will be permitted. RSVPs will close at 6:00 PM Thursday, October 23. As I expect this to be a popular topic, please be considerate and only RSVP if you plan on attending because space is limited.
