I’m happy to announce that our next talk at London Web Standards will be on the topic “Move over Web Accessibility, inclusivity is heading straight at you!” presented by Sandi Wassmer (@SandiWassmer). The event will take place at 7pm at the Square Pig in Holborn on Monday 15th February – tickets will be available on EventBrite at 3pm this Friday (29th Jan).
Sandi is a Web Accessibility Enthusiast, Inclusivity Advocate, Action for Blind People Blogger and MD of digital agency, Copious, and will be talking about why she is rooting for Inclusive Design to lead Accessibility.
Over the past couple of meetups we have had record numbers of people signup for our events which has led to us having to create and administer waiting lists. Unfortunately, a large number of people become unable to attend and don’t notify me leading to empty places at the event which could have been filled by people who weren’t quick enough to get a ticket. If I could remind everybody to be courteous to our presenters and other members and let me know in advance if you are unable to attend as otherwise we will need to introduce a more vigilant registration process which I don’t think should be necessary.
We’re planning on overhauling our website shortly and so will be running a design competition so you can show off your creative sides – the winning design will be used for the new londonwebstandards.org website! We’ll be releasing further details shortly.
We are hoping to launch a job board at some point in the future but for the time being I’ll be adding any relevant job vacancies to these monthly emails. If you are interested in a vacancy or have one you would like to add then let me know.
Until Next Time
I’ll be posting another message here and on our Twitter feed (@webstandards) on Friday once tickets are available for the Web Accessibility event.
