All our Meets events are nice, interactive and (hopefully 😻) interesting. Our upcoming Meets for All is meant to give you insight and inspiration in how you can design and develop your digital products in an accessible way.
We have three amazing speakers for you. We’ll start with Google’s head of Accessiblity, Christopher Patnoe, who will talk about building accessible products. After that, Deque’s Harris Schneiderman will do a quick showcase of their Axe testing tool. We’ll end with Manuel Matuzović, who will remind us all not to focus on metrics only in an eye-opening talk.
We open our virtual doors 30 minutes before we start on Monday, December 6, 2021 at 8AM PT 🌍 and we’ll finish around 11AM.
🏄🏻 8AM — San Diego
🧀 11AM — Philadelphia
🦩 5PM — Barcelona
🍜 12 Midnight — Beijing
We love it when our speakers do live things: they show how they work — their setup, techniques and shortcuts for getting work done in live interactive sessions. So you can learn from their techniques (and mistakes).
December 6 – Conference
The Meets for All. All for Meets! Our friendly and accessible host will welcome you with friendly words, some quick explaining and maybe some digital balloons! We can’t wait to meet you!
Building Inclusively, Building Accessibly
With over 25 years of experience in building digital products for (large) tech companies, Christopher will describe some key factors on building inclusively. He will also show some real-world examples how Google has tackled some of the accessibility challenges in their products.
Harris is a experienced front-end developer at Deque Systems, where he helps people and organisations build more accessible digital products. In this showcase, Harris will show how the powerful Axe testing tools can help.
Coffee & Toilet Break ☕️
Time for a quick break. Feel free to stretch your legs, get that coffee and cuddle your pets (not that you won't do that anyway :).
Building The Most Inaccessible Site Possible With A Perfect Lighthouse Score
Google’s built-in testing tool Lighthouse judges the accessibility of our websites with a score between 0 and 100. It’s laudable to try to get a high grading, but a score of 100 doesn’t mean that the site is perfectly accessible. To prove that, Manuel Matuzović carried out a little experiment, which he'll share with us in this talk.
In this interactive panel discussion, Vitaly will talk accessibility with our speakers, who will also answer your questions.
All good things come to an end. Thankfully, you can relive it all with our videos, slides, and collaborative docs. We hope you’ll get back to work with new skills and fresh inspiration. Thank you for joining us! ⛱
