2009-04-16 Accessible Javascript with and without WAI ARIA at GeekUp Leeds

Yesterday I had the great pleasure to have been invited to speak at a GeekUp special in Leeds.

I must say that these lovely Northeners turned out to be the best audience a speaker can dream of. I was presented with an endless stream of really good and very interesting questions. It's a shame there was no recording because the amazing audience really made this evening and my slides can in no way show the great discussions and fun we had. 

2009-03-09 Think Visibility - SEO and more

Last weekend I had the great pleasure to have been invited to a very interesting new conference.

Dom "The Hodge" Hodgson kicked off the first, of hopefully a lot more conferences called, Think Visibility.

The one day conference featured a very wide selection of talks across Usability, Eye Tracking, Social Media, Affiliate, Analytics and many more with a slight focus on SEO. The Talks I've listened to were packed with a lot of insight and informations you wouldn't expect the speakers to give away. I learned a lot and I'm now very tempted to try out some of the SEO Voodoo myself ;-)

Not only was the Think Visibility very interesting but also great fun! The Northerners and their guests are a lovely bunch and as great to talk to during the conferences as in the Pub before and afterwards.

Here are the Slides of my own Talk. A very basic introduction to Web Accessibility for a audience containing hardly any frontend guys which was quite new to me:

Nach, sage und schreibe, 7 Barcamps als Teilnehmer ist es an der Zeit meine gesammelte "Erfahrung" und "Weisheit" einzusetzen.

Zusammen mit einigen anderen der üblichen Barcamp-Verdächtigen habe ich das kommende Barcamp London 6 organisiert.
