Auckland CSS Meetup: An introduction to Accessibility in UI

July 24 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Howdy folks,

This July we’ve got a theme of Accessibility.

Our main speaker is Heidi Cone, Front-End Developer at Digital Arts Network.
Heidi will be giving an intro to Accessibility in UI, covering 4 main areas:
– What is Accessibility in UI?
– why should I care about it?
– how do I get started?
– and what are some resources that I can use?

We’ll end the evening with a show and tell. If you’ve got a project you’re working on and keen to share, warts and all, this is a great time to do just that. Ask for input or possible go on a rant about some tech that’s been bothering you.
Our show and tell’s can be short, 2 to 5 minute sessions but if you’re interested in something longer, we’ve still got room for you. Just ping the meetup organizers and let us know what you’d like to present on.

Doors open: 6:00pm
Talks begin: 6:30pm
Doors closed: ~ 8pm

We’re taking donations for this meetup. Donate what you can to cover food and drink for the evening. We’ll have a link for online donations posted during the night and accept cash/coins.
