Thanks for visiting the home of the fourth Accessibility Camp Bay Area. The event will be hosted by LinkedIn (222 2nd St, San Francisco 94105) on Saturday October 21, 2017. Please plan to arrive at 9:00 AM to check in. Camp will start promptly at 9:30 AM and will wrap-up by 4:30 PM. With fifteen talks to choose from, the goal of the day is to provide an open, informal space for conversation and networking around digital access and inclusion.
To get a feel for the types of sessions this year's camp may have, take a look at last year's list of talks. New in 2017, a mini track whose focus is on users with cognitive disabilities.
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.
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 Frequently Asked Questions, especially if you have never attended a participant-driven BarCamp/unconference before.
