Third Accessibility Camp Toronto at OCAD on November 16th!
The third Accessibility Camp Toronto will take place Saturday November 16, 2013 at OCAD University, 100 McCaul Street, Toronto. The goal of the day is to provide an open, informal space where attendees will drive the agenda.
Focusing on users with different disabilities, sessions can cover digital accessibility topics from the web (technical to tactical), desktop software, mobile apps, eLearning, online gaming, open source innovations, 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.
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 website's Frequently Asked Questions, especially if you have never attended a participant-driven BarCamp/unconference before.
Accessibility Camp Toronto is part of a series of sister events whose focus has been on digital accessibility and users with disabilities. Since 2009, these have taken place in: Washington D.C., Boston, Guelph, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Tokyo, and Seattle. Los Angeles has its first unconference on October 20. Visit the Accessibility Camp website to learn more about the broader community that Accessibility camp Toronto is joining.
