Developing with Accessibility
Start Date: September 6, 2012
End Date: September 7, 2012
Description:The FCC's Accessibility and Innovation Initiative (A&I) will be hosting the "Developing with Accessibility," which is designed to spur increased collaboration on accessibility solutions among developers from industry, consumer, and government sectors. The event will encourage the use of accessibility APIs (application programming interfaces), as well as publicly available data sets, in order to build accessible apps for mobile phones and websites. One of the key objectives is to promote the concept and practice of developing applications within accepted accessibility guidelines, thereby maximizing their usability for everyone, including people with disabilities. The event will offer training on development topics, in-person collaboration on programming projects, and professional networking among developers. The general session of the event will be webcast with open captioning at http://www.fcc.gov/live.
