Speaking: Accessible Web Apps & Standards
I will be speaking twice in September, both of them sponsored by Infotech Niagara. If you're in the Buffalo area, these are great opportunities to boost my ego and watch me cruise abandoned plates for food.
Developing Coding Standards
The first event is Developing Coding Standards, where I will be a panelist tackling the role of W3C standards in web sites and web applications. This event is Tuesday, September 14 from 8:30am to 10:30am in the Knox Room at the Buffalo Niagara Partnership offices. The breakdown:
We've all heard of standards such as ISO, W3C and others, but how many developers genuinely support them? And what do developers do within their own organizations for internal standards? Join our panelists to discuss how development standards streamline your process and result in greater efficiency and savings for everyone.
We'll be taking a look at the issue from different perspectives and
welcoming your questions. Continental breakfast will be provided.
Building Accessible Web Applications
The second event is Building Accessible Web Applications, where I will be speaking about supporting users with disabilities. This event is Tuesday, September 21 from 8:30am to 10:30am in the Knox Room at the Buffalo Niagara Partnership offices. The scoop on this one:
As more and more companies do business with the general public online, web-based applications have become the main customer service experience for its customers. Supporting users with disabilities is not only good karma, it enables customers who have vision impairments, physical limitations, and even supports our growing web-enabled senior population.
Join infoTech Niagara and Adrian Roselli from Algonquin Studios for a presentation on Building Accessible Web Applications. Learn all the tricks of the trade and ask any questions you might have. Continental breakfast will be provided.
Both events are at Buffalo Niagara Partnership, 665 Main Street, Suite 200, Buffalo, New York 14203 (map below). BNP has parking information at its web site.
