Web 2.0 versus Web Accessibility 101

Accessibility 2.0: A million flowers bloomIf you are in London in April and have an interest in advancing the web using the latest technologies but also care a dime about keeping the end result accessible, you must come along to the 1-day event that AbilityNet are hosting. Accessibility 2.0: A Million Flowers Bloom includes a number of the leading accessibility experts converging for 1 day of practical discussions and demonstrations:

They will be looking at practical solutions to the Web 2.0 accessibility problems, showing cutting edge techniques.  We want to make it a very practical day, so that you will come away knowing what you need to do, and where you need to focus to make sure you give access to all users.

Ther is an early bird registration fee which runs out in 2 days (sorry, I only just found out about this event!), with the very reasonable price of £150 for the day. The booking form is here.

  1. after a bit of soul-searching (and wallet-shuffling), i decided to come along. watch out, though…there’s VAT to be added on top of the price, so it worked out at around £176 in the end…

    Hi Ian,

    Thanks for posting this here. The event is the first of it’s kind (that we know of) in the UK and I’m sure it’s going to be really interesting.

    @ Patrick - we’ve kept the price similar to other UK events. At AbilityNet we keep all overheads as low as possible and any profit goes into funding our charitable work.

    As this is our first event we don’t have a major sponsor that would enable us to lower the price further. I should add that the support from the speakers and BBC Backstage which has made the event possible.

    Look forward to seeing you at the event.
