We thought you might want to have this handy, downloadable guide to all of our activities, presentations, demos, and special events at CSUN 2011–here you go! Come see us in our Showcase Suite for all the excitement!
Remember to RSVP for our exclusive VIP events on Wednesday (3/16) and Thursday (3/17) nights inside our Showcase Suite:
First, Deque is pleased to host a very special guest, Robert Pearson, who will be presenting “Impossible is Nothing”, on Wednesday night (March 16th). Robert is an information technology professional who has been functioning, influencing, and engaging in the web accessibility industry since 1999. Robert says, “Impossible is a word often heard in the accessibility industry. ‘It is impossible to access this web page, it is impossible to include money for accessibility in the budget’.”
Impossible is also a word that has been used to describe how Robert Pearson overcame the challenges afforded by his physical disability, which nearly resulted in him losing his life more than two dozen times over two years. With a passion for life and an understanding that anything is achievable and nothing is to be feared, it becomes clear how “impossible” is only a word. Cocktails and small plates start at 4:00 pm, and Robert’s special presentation starts at 5:00 p.m.
Join us Thursday, March 17th, as we celebrate Jim Thatcher’s achievements and the significant contributions he’s made in the field of web accessibility. Jim is hailed as one of the founders of the industry for his ground-breaking efforts to make the Internet accessible to everyone. Be part of the entire accessibility community’s celebration of Jim’s contributions and success—fuel your passion to make the dream of a truly accessible web a reality. We’ll be hosting a very special Lifetime Achievement Award Ceremony & Celebration on Thursday, March 17th, from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. in our Showcase Suite. Cocktails and small plates start at 4:00 pm, and the presentation ceremony starts at 5:00 p.m.
