I encourage you to get to as many of these as you can! Attending events is always educational, not to mention the great networking opportunities that come with hanging out with a building full of geeks! If you know of an event that I haven’t covered, please let me know in the comments below…

Ideas5; WCAG2.0 and PDF Accessibility

Thursday, March 26th, 2009

The other day, we (committee of The Australian Web Industry Association) announced our latest event, Ideas5.

To be held at the Melbourne Hotel on Wed 22 April 2009, the event is expected to draw a reasonable crowd, to hear from two experts about the W3C recommendation of WCAG2.0, as well as hear about accessibility issues, particularly around the Adobe PDF format. Then there’s the free food and cash bar for further enticement.

A big thanks for our two speakers, Andrew Downie and Roger Hudson, who are travelling from Sydney to speak at this event, our sponsors, who help offset the costs of these events, as well as the committee, all volunteers who work tirelessly behind the scenes to bring these events to Perth.

If you work on the web, and pride yourself on accessibility, then you’ll want to attend this one. The full details are on the Ideas5 page. I encourage you to grab a ticket now, and support these great events.

I hope to see you there!
