A panel with many hands-on examples of real world (ARIA) implementations presented together with Gez Lemon, Steve Faulkner (both working for The Paciello Group) and a developer from Mozilla/IBM (as yet unknown).

If you are going to SXSW 2009 and would be interested in attending this panel or just want to help us get this panel off the ground, create an account (you won’t be spammed) and vote using the SXSW Interactive panel picker (before 29th August).

Hopefully we will see you there!
