November 12, 2018 (Monday)

Executive Overview - 8am to 10am - FREE

Executive Overview provides a 2-hour crash course in the important executive concerns around accessibility. This training covers general accessibility awareness, an overview of laws & regulations, a discussion of litigation history, and a roadmap for implementing accessibility in your organization.

Note: We recommend that everyone who wishes to attend any of the other training sessions come to this one as well!

Stem-to-Stern Accessibility - 10am to 4pm

This one-day workshop is a general overview workshop aimed at everyone involved in IT from executives to PMs, designers, developers, and QA. There is no code in this workshop. At the end of this workshop, you'll know all of the various places to consider accessibility and the best practices for doing so.

Depending on the audience, Accessibility is often treated as either a coding discussion or a compliance discussion, without considering the relationship between the two. Worse, it is almost never discussed as part of the larger discussion of quality. This results in projects that are inaccessible, expensive, and late.

The path to an inclusively-designed and compliant product is paved through the integration of accessibility at all phases of the development lifecycle. Accessibility must begin and continue through management commitment, vision, and planning, through design and coding, to testing, documentation and delivery. In this workshop, we will explore ways for integrating accessibility into software development. Whether you work in a large or small organization, follow an agile or waterfall process, are experienced or just starting out, this workshop will guide you toward reliably developing accessible and usable products. Integrating accessibility relies on a diverse set of skills across the product-development spectrum, so this workshop is structured to be inclusive and engaging to all skill sets and levels. Your participation will be encouraged through group interaction and shared experiences as we explore the process of building not only an accessible software product, but a culture that sustains cost-effective, ongoing delivery of accessible products.

November 13 & 14, 2018: Developers Accessibility Bootcamp

This 2-day training event covers all of the core principles of accessibility, focusing on what accessibility is, how users with disabilities use computers, and how to consider accessibility when designing and developing web-based systems. The first and second days of the bootcamp are highly interactive and feature a lot of teamwork. The 3rd day is a half day where attendees apply what they’ve learned by critiquing their own work.

This training is topic-based, navigating through key topics in accessibility from very high-level to very detailed. Each topic features both teamwork and lecture and the technical topics provide important details about considering accessibility in both design and development. The developers bootcamp includes discussion of a broad range of topics including the design and development of various types of web content.

November 15, 2018: Accessibility Testing

This 1-day training event provides hands-on training in testing for accessibility. This training will cover each of the technical topics from the Accessibility Bootcamp, but from the perspective of testing each type of content. We will cover various testing methodologies including automated, manual, and use case testing and provide helpful job aids for each. We will also cover how to configure and use various types of assistive technologies and discuss how to use each during manual and use case testing.
