Every year like clockwork, the Wisteria outside of my bedroom window starts to bloom the week before CSUN. And this year is no different...
This will be my 20th consecutive year of attending - and presenting at - the California State University of Northridge yearly Conference on Technology and Persons with Disabilities, put on by the capable staff of the Center on Disabilities. And yet after 20 years, I can still clearly remember my very first conference, when I had just started working for Jane Berliss and Berkeley Systems, and at which I gave a presentation on our early outSPOKEN for Windows screen reader work alonside my co-presenter Josh Miele - just one month after my start in the accessibility field!
This year I am attending as part of a somewhat larger company, and I have a slightly different co-presenter...
On Friday March 18th I invite you to join the "Peter and Peter show", as Peter Wallack and I present
The Latest in Accessibility of Oracle’s Platform, Technologies and Applications in the Emma B room. Among other things, we'll be talking about the Early Access release of the Java Access Bridge v2.0.2.
I also invited you to attend two interesting sessions from colleagues in the AEGIS project, who will be talking about and showing some of our research work there.
As ever, there will be a ton of other great things happening at the conference - the "must attend" event of the disability technology field. On my calendar for the week are talks in building accessible mobile apps, progress in accessible TV and virtual environments, open source and free access solutions, and a number of the special events and talk
. Oh, and also Josh Miele's talk
See you at CSUN!
