Accessibility Micro-Workshops for Devs, Testers, Designers, and Other Techies! ♿💻❤️

by Jason Webb

Accessibility is a BIG topic, so let's break it down into some fun, focused, bite-sized micro-workshops that everyone can get something out of! Like speed-dating, but for inclusive development and design practices and empathy-building (swoon ❤️)!

In this session a few small, focused "stations" will be set up around the room, each led by someone who has real-world experience in the topic area. You can come and go between stations whenever you'd like, or just stick at one for the whole session if it's super interesting to you.

To guarantee that we have a few stations ready-to-go, some of my co-workers from Accessible360 (a local accessibility testing + consulting company) will join us to share their experience. If you're interested in leading (or co-leading) a station, please reach out to me so we can coordinate!

Here are some ideas for stations that you can expect (I'll finalize these closer to the event date based on feedback/interest):

  1. 🦯 Live screen reader demos from a native screen reader user - BYO-URL and we'll show you exactly how a non-sighted user experiences it!
  2. 📃 WCAG IRL - learn how to actually read the darn thing, how to test to it, the difference between 2.0 and 2.1, that sort of thing.
  3. ⌨️ Building accessible web components - talk to an experienced UI developer about how to effectively research, build, and test anything from form validations to carousels.
  4. 🎰 Free-for-all - chat about anything that isn't covered in another station. Content creation, inclusive writing tips, legislation / case law / legal strategies, etc. If we don't have an answer, we'll help you figure it out!

The exact topics and number of stations, as well as the amount of space available, can be adjusted based on interest, so be sure to RSVP ➡️ if you're interested!
