CSUN 2016 Recap
I tried writing this on my return flight from CSUN (where I experienced both a temporary mobility impairment thanks to no elbow room in coach to type, and a visual impairment because I could not get the guy behind me to close the shade to prevent glare on my screen). I also had no innertubes access to link to all the tweets. So you get it a couple days late.
This was my second CSUN. I am glad as hell that I went back, although I am a little sad that I missed meeting up with so many people. Maybe next year I’ll skip all the sessions and just keep office hours outside of Redfield’s.
This is assuming that I don’t make good on my plan to submit a couple talks that I may have written while in other talks this year (I like to channel my frustration with a poor talk into something constructive).
I started with three conference recaps, added more as I found them, and have also linked to the Great Big List of the talks:
- The Great Big List from the 2016 CSUN International Technology & Persons with Disabilities Conference
- David Sloan’s recap
- Detonite’s (Job van Achterberg) write-up
- Nell Chitty’s notes (follow the links to the daily write-ups)
- Mallory van Achterberg recounts her visit
- Matthew Tylee Atkinson revisits
- Jason Kiss presented highlights back in New Zealand
- Henny has provided a round-up of Paciello Group talks.
Mostly my tweets, because ego. You can find all my image posts on Tumblr (tagged CSUN16), but they are mostly food photos. I excluded most of those in my tweets below. Now for the processor-spiking data-plan-killing collection of tweets:

Even if you weren’t at talk, very useful demo.

At #CSUN16 you can’t make a passing statement about browser/AT testing combos in your talk without fielding lots of questions (“questions”).— Adrian Roselli (@aardrian) March 23, 2016

So I just drank a double shot of sugar because I wasn't letting that go to waste.
I may have just manned a booth in the #CSUN16 exhibition hall. Handed out some stuff, chatted with folks.— Adrian Roselli (@aardrian) March 24, 2016

Big theme @ #CSUN16 sessions is importance of universal design. You can change underlying code to be more accessible but it won't fix bad UX— Cordelia (@cordeliadillon) March 25, 2016

Goodnight umpteenth affogato.
Goodnight complete lack of sleep.
Goodnight trade show booth I squatted.
Goodnight name tag I stole from someone.
Goodnight redshirt room capacity enforcers.
Goodnight service dogs I really wanted to pet.
Goodnight hotel bartender who served a Hendricks tonic with a lime.
Viking & Lumberjack
I figured I might as well embed the live stream video since I made enough references to it above.
After I left
I flew out Saturday morning, which means I missed both the TPG-sponsored UXathon and the Deque aXe Hackathon. I am really looking forward to the outcome of each, but the tabbed interface paper prototype (linked tweet below) looked compelling.
