This is the newer & updated version of the "Responsive Web Design & Accessibility" presentation (http://slidesha.re/1awZEmT).
George Zamfir, Accessibility Specialist, goodwally.ca
Description: As we are moving away from traditional computers and towards mobile devices the question is: How do we build our web products to work for all these devices and more importantly, how do we do it accessibly?
In my experience, Responsive Web Design (RWD) is a good solution - not only that it doesn't impede accessibility but it promotes it.
We'll learn the basics of RWD and accessibility techniques.
Objectives: Throughout the different projects I worked on it became apparent to me that Responsive Web Design (RWD) is a good promoter for accessibility. In this session, I will be sharing the lessons learned and practical examples on implementing RWD and accessibility.
The objective is 2-fold:
A primer on Responsive Web Design (RWD); what it is and how to build responsive websites
Best practices cross-overs between RWD and accessibility.
Speaker Bio(s): My name is George Zamfir and I'm passionate about web accessibility.
I have been working in web accessibility since 2006 touching on the many facets of this field: performed academic research into learning technologies at Ryerson University, built assistive technologies, ran a web development business, developed technical accessibility solutions at Scotiabank working on complex web properties, but even more gratifying is organizing monthly accessibility meetups in Toronto.
Did I mention I also played the piano professionally at age 6?
