About the Event
In support of the coinciding April 2013 Accessibility Summit and the following M-Enabling Summit in June 2013, Nokia Developer outreach will host a Mobile Monday brainstorming workshop on Mobile Usability and Accessibility. The goal is to explore obstacles and opportunities in mobile device use, particularly focusing on challenges involving touchscreens. Please come prepared with ideas for a stimulating session! Refreshments will be available.
The workshop will be led by Randall "texrat" Arnold of the Nokia Developer outreach team along with a panel of subject matter experts.
