I’m happy to announce I’ll be speaking at our Refresh Detroit meetup on September 21, 2017.
Our meetup group is hosting Lightning Talks, where each speaker has 10 minutes to share their knowledge on a topic they’re passionate about.
Enjoy an evening with fellow web professionals as you learn something new, or discover a different approach for your work projects.
What I’ll Be Presenting
My presentation is on Accessible Content, something I care deeply about.
I’ll explain why accessibility matters and the business case for making your content more accessible.
In addition, I’ll discuss:
- What accessibility is
- Who is affected by accessibility
- How to make your online content accessible
Whether you’re a designer, developer, engineer, marketer, or content author, you’ll walk away with actionable tips you can use today to improve accessibility of your online content.
We have an exciting evening planned, with a range of talks by our Refresh Detroit members:
- Website Performance and Load Testing, presented by Christopher Martello, Enterprise Application Manager at Cengage Learning
- Augmented Reality with Vuforia, presented by Peter Guenther, instructor at Grand Circus
- Transforming the University of Michigan Testing Strategy, presented by Mike Wojan, User Experience Designer at the University of Michigan
Our meetup is 6:30pm to 8:30pm on September 21, 2017. Pre-registration ($5.00 cost) is required.
Parking is available at the Detroit Opera House parking garage on Broadway for $8 (unless there’s a special event). The Detroit Opera House parking garage is a short walk up Broadway and around the corner from the Grand Circus space.
Street parking is also available on Washington Boulevard (one block west of Grand Circus, a short three-minute walk, depending on where you park). Prepare to pay by credit card or use the Detroit Park app.
You’ll also find parking in several nearby parking structures and parking lots.
Note: many downtown lots and structures only take cash.
Special thanks to Grand Circus for graciously hosting our event. We appreciate their support of Refresh Detroit and our events.
I look forward to meeting you at our lightning talks! See you on September 21, 2017!
