Recently I attended the Accessibility London Mini-Conference.
It was an interesting day, with a new group of passionate people, a new venue for me. Some thoughts that I took away from it:
The Web Accessibility London 2012 Mini-Conference (a11yLDN’12) is a 1-day event that will take place at City University London on 19th September 2012 from 10am to 4pm.
The mini-conference will have a deaf and hard of hearing theme, as it is believed they are a widely under-represented population within web accessibility. However, the mini-conference will also consider the wider-disability population
