Web Accessibility - Firecat First Friday November
Friday, November 2, 2012 from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM (CDT)
San Antonio, TX
Websites Accessible by All
Did you know that websites can be friendly - or unfriendly - to users with visual, auditory or mobility impairments? And that by following a few simple guidelines or selecting the right platform and template, your website will be easier to use and more easily found by search engines?
Presenter Sharron Rush is a leading expert in web accessibility. She'll show us the financial and legal impacts of not making a website accessible - it's a very large market share, and share specific techniques and advice for achieving WCAG accessibility. It's pretty easy, and there are other benefits, such as better display across devices such as smart phones and tablets, and better findability and usability for all.
About the Firecat First Friday Coworking Program
The web industry is changing so fast, we need to compare notes to keep up - and Firecat has a vested interest in developing a robust creative community in San Antonio.
So here's the deal. Every first Friday of the month, we provide lunch and an interesting topic and speaker related to the Creative Economy. Bring your laptop, smart phone - or pad and pen. We open up the Studio and share the wifi, coffee and soft drinks between 10:30 and 3:30, open house style. Come network and hang out. Share and get some new ideas to recharge yourself. For more information, see the Firecat Coworking FAQs.
