Websites can be both beautiful and accessible, but it takes teamwork to make it happen. Learn technical tricks as well as process solutions for making designs that work for every user at a talk by SSB Accessibility Services Team Lead, Mitchell Evan.
Mitchell has twenty years of experience leading collaborative teams and is passionate about building interactive web content that is as beautiful as it is accessible. He was a top-rated presenter at CSUN and was selected for the Best of CSUN 2015.
His talk will explore accessibility at the intersection of visual design and front-end development. Why do some accessibility problems seem harder to fix than others? How do you set clear expectations for a project? For example, who is responsible for the keyboard experience? When is the right time to fix a UI widget library? Why is it hard to fix a color palette? Mitchell will give you both practical solutions and tried-and-true ways to streamline your design process.
Accessibility Camp Bay Area will be hosted by LinkedIn (222 2nd St, San Francisco 94105) on Saturday October 29, 2016. It’s a great opportunity to hear talks by experts in the accessibility space and geek out about digital accessibility with your peers in the industry.
Sessions at Accessibility Camp cover topics from the web (technical to tactical), desktop software, mobile apps, eLearning, online gaming, open source innovations, and everything in between. It’s a wonderful place to get your feet wet if you’re curious about accessibility or to expand your knowledge if you’ve been at it for decades (like us!).
Registration for the event is free, but there are limited spots. Go to Accessibility Camp Bay Area’s website to register. You can follow Accessibility Camp Bay Area on Twitter at @A11yCampBay.
