Upcoming web accessibility training and events

By February 25th, 2013

Here's an upcoming list of conferences we're speaking at, workshops we're delivering and virtual seminars that the Simply Accessible team is getting ready for the first part of 2013.

We’re teachers here at Simply Accessible. We want to know what you want to know. It is a core part of who we are and what we do. That means we spend time writing articles, delivering workshops and speaking at conferences pretty regularly. Here’s a list of some of the upcoming events we’ll be speaking at or hosting over the next few months.
