Web Accessibility Workshop

Aug 19, 2014 · Durham, United States of America

Who can use your websites? Are they accessible to as many people as possible?
Web accessibility is the process of making it easy for everyone to access your web content, regardless of whether or not they approach the web in a typical way. Come to this workshop to learn more about designing with accessibility in mind—and building a better web experience for everyone.
This two-hour workshop will focus on general design principles, with some hands-on exercises. It is helpful to have some knowledge of HTML and CSS.  You should also plan to bring a laptop and some headphones to work along with the class.
If anyone is interested in attending but does not have access to a laptop, please let me know. We may be able to provide a laptop for the duration of the workshop.
