"We're all just temporarily abled". Said the deceased web designer Cindy Li in a keynote speech.

A sentence that prompted the front-end developer Melanie Schweiger to address the issue of accessibility on the internet. We aren't just designing accessible products and websites for a subgroup of people who have permanent visual or motor issues. We're designing these sites and products for many more people, for all of us. Even with a broken arm or a child in your arms, you can only use your smartphone or tablet to a limited extent.

Be more inclusive. How can we as web designers and developers contribute to this? Would you like to learn more about this and try it out for yourself? Then come and meet the developers Melanie, Inma, Iris and Eileen.

During the workshop, we will provide you with a comprehensive introduction to the topics at hand, and then work together in groups to practically apply what we have learned. No matter your level of experience or focus, you are more than welcome to attend. We believe that accessibility is a relevant topic that can benefit everyone. Bring a laptop if you can, but don't worry if you can't.
