IMPORTANT NOTE: If you receive a message from the organizers asking for your first and last names and do not reply by noon on Tuesday, December 11, you will be removed from the attendee list. We need to provide an official guest list to our host for security. The official guest list will close at noon on Tuesday, December 11.

The December meetup (our last one of the year) will feature two speakers and tech disciplines. We'll dive into designing accessible color contrast and developing accessible javascript.

DESIGNING ACCESSIBLE COLOR SYSTEMS:
Choosing accessible colors for UI doesn’t have to involve guesswork. Come learn about the math and color science that goes into building a color system based on accessible contrast ratios. Systems Designer Brad Turner will present his approach to defining Handshake's accessible color palette and share some homegrown tools you can use in your own work!

ACCESSIBLE ROUTING WITH REACT:
Join digital accessibility consultant Chris Lane as he discusses accessible routing with react and answers questions about some of the most common issues he encounters in his day-to-day work, and how to resolve them.

6:00 to 6:30 — Mix & Mingle

6:45 to 8:00 — Presentations by Brad Tuner and Chris Lane
