Go through the booms to the right. Go up the stairs on the left and enter the courtyard. You'll see a lift on the far side. Take that to the second floor: NML is directly opposite the lift as you exit. Hi! :)

Details

It's that time of year again! Global Accessibility Awareness Day http://www.globalaccessibilityawarenessday.org/ is on Thursday May[masked]. We're running our annual weekend workshop just before the day itself :)

**About the workshop**

We've dramatically revamped the workshop to give you more time testing and tweaking your stuff. We've expanded and revised the GAAD activities to include more tests of more things, grouped into themed categories. We've got more ways of talking about a wider definition of disability and of making a case for adopting Inclusive Design as an awesome way to build things for the web.

During the workshop you'll test your work, makes some small changes that'll make a big difference, and learn from the other attendees. As you leave, you'll have plans for what to do next, and some ideas about what to do yourself on Global Accessibility Awareness Day on Thursday May 17.

**About you**

• You'll need a web site to use for the workshop. This could be from work, a side project, or something brand new.
• You should be familiar with HTML and CSS. A little knowledge of JavaScript will be useful, but isn't required.
• You're interested in making your web stuff work for more people.
• If you have one, bring your laptop, charger, and a pair of headphones.
