Imagine spending an hour every day learning about web accessibility. And doing it for 100 days.
That’s what web designer Amy Carney challenged herself to do earlier this year, as part of her plan to improve her web accessibility knowledge.
I followed Amy’s exciting 100-day journey via Twitter, as she shared her lessons learned.
And I can’t wait to hear her talk in person about her journey at Inclusive Design 24 when it returns for a second time this year on November 16, 2017.
What is Inclusive Design 24?
ID24 consists of 24 one-hour webinars featuring web professionals from around the world sharing their expertise and knowledge of web accessibility.
Sessions range from beginner to advanced and all sessions will be livestreamed with captions.
There’s no need to sign up or register, you attend when you can. Recordings will be available after the event.
I’ve attended all the past ID24 events and walked away each time with valuable tips and information to apply to my web projects.
About the Sessions
Whether you’re a beginner or someone who has worked on the web for years, you’ll found an accessibility topic to interest you.
If you’re in the Eastern Time Zone like me, the first session begins at on November 15, 2017 with Aaron Gustafson talking about voice-based interactions on the web.
In addition, you’ll find talks on:
- I’m Trying To Give You My Money. Hello?
- Inclusive Markup
- Connecting communities for inclusion
- Mobile Mystery Meat
- 100 Days of A11y: A Web Designer’s Journey to Learning Accessibility
and many others. Mark your calendar with the sessions you want to attend.
Inclusive Design 24 Schedule
The schedule has been posted on the ID24 site. I know from experience that the schedule, speakers, and time they speak can change.
I recommend checking the schedule the day before to confirm when the sessions you want to watch will be held.
If you’ve been wanting to ramp up your web accessibility knowledge or if you’ve wondered how to help your team members learn more about web accessibility, ID24 is for you!
It’s free, you can come and go when you want, and you have the opportunity to chat with the speakers during the sessions. That’s pretty remarkable!
In addition, you can connect with others attending the event on Twitter using the #ID24 hashtag.
I have sessions 1, 3, 5, 23, and 24 marked on my calendar and I’m hoping to attend more. Will I see you at ID24 next month?
