About the event
After the great success of the Accessibility Club's first hybrid streaming event last November Joschi and Marc decided to not waste the opportunity and repeat this right after the upcoming beyond tellerrand conference in Düsseldorf again. As in November, there will be a couple of talks / presentations by some lovely accessibility folks. And again, you will be able to join both remotely or on-site — see below for details.
Presentation 1: Do you validate your HTML?
Manuel logged onto reddit.com and asked an innocent question: Do you validate your HTML? The answers were very interesting, so interesting that he decided to share and discuss some of them with the Accessibility Club.
Presentation 2: User Zoom and Reflow
Our web layouts should support user zoom up to 400% according to WCAG Success Criterion 1.4.10. For most sites, this triggers the "mobile" layout to go into effect. Let's review the differences between handling for responsive vs. reflow design, and learn how to improve the user experience for reflow using modern CSS.
Presentation 3: Exclusive Design — A critical approach to teaching accessibility
In the past years Vasilis has taught a few different Exclusive Design courses. In all these courses he asked his students to design and create a tailor made thing for a real person with a disability. In this presentation Vasilis will discuss the ideas behind this design method, and he will show some of the work his students have made over the years.
We're delighted to announce that the City of Düsseldorf offered us to run our meetup at the new municipal library, the Zentralbibliothek Düsseldorf, again. While the focus will be the live stream again, it's possible for a small group of people to join us on-site. If you're around Düsseldorf anyway you might decide to be there in person — but please do so responsibly (still in a pandemic, right?).
The location is fully wheelchair-accessible (with accessible toilets next to the meetup room). Service animals are allowed and welcome. If needed, a quiet room is available as well. We will print and put up some signage that will guide you from the entrance on the ground floor to the meetup room on the second floor.
Important: At the moment the City of Düsseldorf requires all visitors of some municipal buildings to wear a mask, so please prepared for this in case you want to attend the meetup in person.
As we only expect a very small group of people at the venue we don't provide snacks and beverages at the event, but there's a small café right next to the meetup room which should fulfil your wishes.
