Gearing up for CSUN: Amaze News and an Amazing Evening

Share on FacebookShare on LinkedInShare on Twitter

There have been some exciting recent developments with our groundbreaking Amaze product. To recap: Amaze is our brand new accessibility solution. It works by creating an overlay for your websites that renders the site usable by people with disabilities and creating a report that can be used to correct accessibility errors on the site. Amaze can also render 3rd party sites accessible without having access to the source code.

This summer we did an initial launch of Amaze that piqued the interest of one of our Fortune 100 clients, and they commissioned us to implement Amaze across their web sites. This was our first opportunity to launch Amaze on a large scale, and we are pleased to say that this experiment has been amazingly successful.

Amaze has been able to provide real-time remediation to the hundreds of web pages in our client's site without impacting load times, and the stringent security measures required by our client have not hindered Amaze's effectiveness. In addition, Amaze has been able to remediate all the 3rd party transactional services and applications included across the site, living up to all our hope and expectations for the product.

So what's next for Amaze? Well, in early 2013, we're going to be updating our web site and materials providing you with more information about Amaze (not to mention our other services and software). Later in 2013 we're hoping to introduce a Software Developer Kit for Amaze so developers outside of Deque will be able to develop unique Amaze overlays for web pages. At CSUN we will be giving a series of presentation on Amaze, including a live demo and a discussion of the platform's technical architecture.

An Amazing Evening...

We'd also like to share some more information with you about our Amazing Evening even at CSUN from 6:30-8:30pm on Wednesday, February 27th in the Deque Ballroom (Manchester C). Join us for light refreshments and some amazing entertainment:

  • Guitarist Mark Goffeney will be performing. Mark is an American musician from San Diego, California, known as "Big Toe" because, being born without arms, he plays guitar with his feet.
  • There will be an appearance by special guest Derek Rabelo, the star of the upcoming documentary Beyond Sight, the Derek Rabelo story.
  • And Deque Systems will be making some very special announcements you won't want to miss.

An Amazing Evening t-Shirt is required for admission. You can pick up your t-shirt at CSUN, before the event, in the Deque Ballroom. See you there!
