What do you need to know about accessibility for developing websites? And where do you go for more information?

Featured speakers Gian Wild, CEO of AccessibilityOz, and Rob Dodson, our host and developer advocate at Google, discuss the technical aspects of web accessibility, what's important, and where you can get more information (beyond the basics).

This event is targeted at developers who are new (or newer) to accessibility, but anyone interested in improving the experience for everyone is welcome to attend.
