Hi everyone,

(Sorry for cross-posting, but this is for a good cause)...

Please allow me to draw your attention to the next #a11yConference in line, the one happening in Montreal this friday, Nov 23rd, in Montreal, Canada: http://a11ymtl.org/en/.

The conference will be free to attend online, but registration is mandatory. If you are interested in supporting the event by registering, this will help us demonstrate that a11y is not just a local thing, but also something that attracts the attention of people all over the world. The registration process is in French, but I could help you out if you wanted to do so.

It so happens that a11yMTL's main conference track is going to be bilingual and I would love for as many people as possible to be able to attend, as we have some great speakers/content lined up. Some of our english speakers this year are Shawn Henry Lawton (W3C), Derek Featherstone (Simply Accessible) and Elle Waters (Simply Accessible). Here are the english conferences from the morning line up:

9h10 am - 9h50 am Eastern
[Title] Web Accessibility: A Catalyst to Greatness
Shawn Lawton Henry – W3C Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI)

11h00 am - 11h40 am Eastern
[Title] Derek Featherstone (details to follow)
Derek Featherstone – Lead Web & Mobile Accessibility Consultant (Simply Accessible)

11h50 am - 12h30 pm Eastern
[Title] Accessibility as Innovation: Life on Mars
Elle Waters – Accessibility Fixer (Simply Accessible)

If you are interested to follow it up, please go to http://a11ymtl.org/en/inscriptions to register. Like I said, once inside Eventbrite, the site will be in French, but I can help you register if this proves to be a barrier.

Looking forward to hearing from you. And by all means, feel free to share this information with people you know if you think it can interest them.
