Who Should Come?
You should come. And bring your friends. This hackathon is open to all experience levels. If you can download a browser extension, you can test for accessibility. We’ll also have some advanced project opportunities for our more seasoned a11y friends.
Will There Be food?
Yes! We will provide lunch and a coffee break. We’ll email everyone for dietary restrictions closer to the event.
Will There Be Accessibility Accommodations?
We will provide captioning for the opening and closing of the hackathon. The event will mostly consist of people working independently and in small groups on various projects, so it won’t be possible to caption absolutely everything said at the event. If you need ASL interpretation or other forms of accommodation, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
