Leeds WordPress meetup – Tues. 25th April 2017 – Accessibility Special

The next WordPress Leeds Meetup is on Tuesday 25th April at our usual venue, Futurelabs in Leeds.

This month we have an accessibility special, with talks and demos from renowned accessibility expert Graham Armfield. Graham is going to run two sessions; The first will be a talk about testing your own websites for accessibility compatibility, and the second will be a demo of some assistive technologies that many people use to access websites.

A big thank you to FutureLabs who let us use their fantastic venue for free! Thanks to the lovely folks at Delicious Media, there will be pizza for everyone at the start of the event.

This month’s event is just one of over 100 events participating in the Leeds Digital Festival 2017, which runs from 22nd-29th April. The festival is a city-wide, open platform celebration of all things digital within Leeds, the Digital Capital of the North. 1 Week, 100+ events, 50+ venues and 10,000 attendees.
