A11yTO - Accessibility Awesomeness
Join us on Saturday October 17, 2015 at OCAD University, 100 McCaul Street, Toronto. Doors open at 9am.
We provide an open, collaborative, informal space with tons of presentations, demos, networking and much more. This year's event is a bit more special - it's our 5th anniversary - and to celebrate we're adding an extra speaker's track for a total of 5 tracks / 20 presentations. Come prepared to take notes, we guarantee that you will leave with lots of ideas. And remember, you drive the camp's agenda. Please indicate the topics you'd like to learn about and we'll go out and find the materials & people to cover that. Or better yet why not present / lead a discussion on a topic you feel passionate about? You can indicate all this on the registration page.
Focusing on users with different disabilities, sessions cover digital accessibility topics from the web (technical to tactical), desktop software, mobile apps, eLearning, online gaming, open source innovations, wearables and everything in between. Watch this brief video from the first Accessibility Camp Toronto to get a feel for what to expect during the day. Also, video recordings from the 2014 camp are available.
Regardless of your level of knowledge, this event is for you. It will be a great opportunity for members of the design/development, usability, accessibility, other IT and end-users with disabilities communities to interact and learn from each other. We recommend you browse the Frequently Asked Questions, especially if you have never attended a participant-driven BarCamp/unconference before.
Please support the event with a $5 suggested donation at the door. Your donation will help cover the costs for miscellaneous expenses - event materials, food, etc.
