We're back again in 2019 with more great topics, and we are excited to be bringing you a presentation this month by Dr. Scott Hollier on accessibility for WordPress. Come and find out a bit more about what WCAG 2.1 actually is, and how it relates to our favourite CMS.
The agenda will be similar to previous events:
6:30pm - 7:00pm: Networking & pizza/drinks (Thanks Sponsors!)
7:00pm - 7:05pm: Introductions & Housekeeping
7:05pm - 7:25pm: Presentation
7:30pm - 8:00pm: Q&A with the expert panel
Refreshments are provided by our ongoing sponsor WP Engine, and our January sponsor (TBC). The fabulous venue where our events are held is the (newly renovated!) Riff Town Hall that is generously provided to us by Spacecubed.
