Hi all,I know Phil P posted this before, but here’s a reminder/update. There

Welcome to the home of the first Accessibility Camp Los Angeles, taking place at the CSU Northridge University Student Union (18111 Nordhoff Street) on Saturday October 20. This free event is held in association with: The Los Angeles User Experience Meetup, The Los Angeles Accessibility and Inclusive Design Meetup, and the Los Angeles PHP Developers Meetup Groups.

Focusing on users with different disabilities, sessions can cover digital accessibility topics from the web, desktop software, mobile apps, eLearning, online gaming, and everything in between. Watch this brief video from the firstAccessibility Camp Toronto to get a feel for what to expect during the day.

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.

Accessibility Camp LA takes its inspiration from the first Accessibility Camp DC, which was held in October 2009. Sister events include:

Accessibility Camp Los Angeles is completely free to attendees.
