Accessibility Club Conference 2018
“While the necessity and benefits of accessible services on the web are pretty obvious, web accessibility is still not a widespread practice. Common reasonsings range from putative additional efforts, tight budgets to the misbelief that "validity equals accessibilty". In many cases, however, it seems that the majority of developers simply has no clue where to start — which comes as no surprise as most of them have never gotten their hands on assistive technology. For 2018, Stefan and Joschi, the two times Berlin organiser team, decided to take it even one step further: They're excited (and admittedly a bit nervous) to invite you to the first ever full-day Accessibility Club Conference, scheduled for November 5th, 2018. They aim for ~150 attendees from all disciplines and knowledge levels, around 4 hand picked top-notch presenters, roughly the same number of shorter communtiy contributors ("mini talks") and a variety of both technical, educational and motivational topics.”
