[Micronet] REMINDER: Webnet meeting June 8, 2010: The Benefits of Making Your Applications Accessible

Natalie Kato
Hi everyone,

At the June 8, 2010 Webnet meeting, WebAccess will present: The  
Benefits of Making Your Applications Accessible

This presentation seeks to help all web developers on campus  
understand why they should keep accessibility in mind when creating  
their applications.

The panel discussion, moderated by Berkeley CIO Shel Waggener, will  
feature IST-Web Applications Manager Bill Allison and L&S Director of  
Computing Tom Holub, two campus IT leaders who have been tireless  
accessibility advocates. The panel will also feature Jon Mires, an  
accessibility expert with the Center for Accessible Technology, a  
local non-profit organization that, among other things, provides  
consulting services to corporations, libraries, and government  
entities on creating accessible websites.

The panel members each have been asked to talk about their experience  
creating accessible web content and what they have found to be the  
result.  There will be time for audience Q&A.

This presentation will be videotaped for later viewing.

When:  Tuesday, June 8, 2010, 12:00 noon - 1:30 pm

Where:  150 University Hall (note location change)

Topic:  The Benefits of Making Your Applications Accessible

Presenter:  WebAccess


We hope to see you there.
