Details

This month, we've invited two excellent speakers to educate us on accessibility and HTTP. Andrew Jaswa (twitter (https://twitter.com/ajaswa), github (https://github.com/ajaswa), website (http://andrewjaswa.com/)) will discuss improving accessibility on the web. With over 10 million Americans with disabilities, he'll talk about how you can make a difference in their lives by building accessible websites. Fred Jean (twitter (https://twitter.com/fredjean), github (https://github.com/fredjean), website (http://fredjean.net/)) will dive into HTTP, discussing why HTTP is an omnipresent, critical and misunderstood protocol. He'll cover its history and current state, the anatomy of requests and responses, and some great tools for debugging. Status Cats will be had.

Delicious food and craft beers, as usual.
