Speaking at Accessibility Camp Toronto 2015


I am excited to say that I will be speaking at Accessibility Camp Toronto again this year. It probably goes without saying that I’ll be speaking on accessibility. If you’re free Saturday, October 17 from 9am until 5pm (or any time within that block), and any slots open up, then come by! I’ll be up at 10:45 in track B (visit the schedule for more).

Instead of re-stating what Accessibility Camp Toronto is all about, I am going to cheat and quote the site directly:

Focusing on users with different abilities, sessions cover digital accessibility topics from the web (technical to tactical), desktop software, mobile apps, eLearning, online gaming, open source innovations, wearables and everything in between. Watch this brief video from the first Accessibility Camp Toronto to get a feel for what to expect during the day. Also, video recordings from the 2014 camp are available.

Regardless of your level of knowledge, this event is for you. It will be a great opportunity for members of the design/development, usability, accessibility, other IT and end-users with disabilities communities to interact and learn from each other. We recommend you browse the Frequently Asked Questions, especially if you have never attended a participant-driven BarCamp/unconference before.

Please support the event with a $5 suggested donation at the door. Your donation will help cover the costs for miscellaneous expenses — materials, food, etc.

Please follow event updates on Twitter via @a11yto or the hashtag #a11yto.

If you don’t follow @a11yto for updates, at least check in on the #a11yto hashtag.

The event is being held at OCAD University, 100 McCaul Street, Toronto, ON M5T 1W1. The embedded map:
