You Can’t Start a Fire Without a Spark: A11yTo

Posted on Monday, 7 November 2016 by Mike Paciello

I was thrilled to present at this year’s Accessibility Camp Toronto (A11yTO). It’s a great city with a really engaged accessibility community. Reminded me of my accessibility days with ICADD, before there was a web and markup language was called SGML….

I have made my slides available for everyone. They are embedded below, but if you have any trouble you can go right to the slides on their own.

It was also a great chance to hang out with some other people in the industry, including some from TPG itself!
