This is an IDF Local Group meet-up

What are Local Groups?
IDF Local Groups will expand your local career network - whether you are interested in learning new skills, looking for new job opportunities, new clients for your company, or a great new dedicated employee.
An IDF Local Group is a group of people who are just as passionate about design as you are. Each Local Group holds physical meetings and the agenda is to get inspired, discuss, have fun, learn and improve your career. Meetings take place in a relaxed and fun atmosphere at a local cafe, an office building, or an auditorium depending on the agenda for the meeting. For each Local Group there is also an online Local Group so you can stay in touch and help update each other on local events.
It is often said that good design is universal design. For anyone who has tried to incorporate this principle into her work, the criteria can be ambiguous. The Denver IDF is partnering with Nutrislice to bring you a timely talk on accessibility principles and techniques. Does your website meet accessibility standards? How do individuals with disabilities interact with and use the web? Are you familiar with tools for evaluating your website's accessibility? Our keynote will cover accessibility principles, techniques, evaluation tools, and what you need to know in order to keep your website compliant with legal guidelines and international standards.
