Whether you’re new to accessibility or an experienced designer, developer, or product manager—join us to get your questions answered by one of the world’s foremost authorities on accessibility and inclusive design, Derek Featherstone.
Message from Derek:
One of my favorite parts of all the webinars I do is the Q&A. Always. I love the interaction, and being able to share and respond directly to people about their questions. One of the struggles is that no matter what the topic of the session is, we’ll get questions that sit outside that particular topic (and often many more than we can get to in the allotted time for Q&A). Why? People have questions and they want answers… so it’s time to set something up that will help with that.
I’ll be leading this 60 minute session, kicking it off with a very brief introduction topic — 10-15 minutes at most — and then the floor will be open for a full 45 minutes of Q&A.
Anything goes! Ask away! This is a chance to ask questions about anything related to accessibility and inclusive design without concern for being off-topic.
