I’m currently wrapping up the rest of my work for the week and getting ready for the annual pilgrimage to San Diego for the annual International Technology and Persons with Disabilities Conference, otherwise known as “CSUN”. Unlike previous years, I have relatively few presentations. I’m glad about that, really, because it means I can spend more time meeting people. If this is your first year at CSUN, you should read John Foliot’s CSUN For Newbies.

Preconference Workshop

On Tuesday, March 18, 2014, at 1:30 PST Billy Gregory and I will be assisting Steve Faulkner and Hans Hillen in a Pre-Conference Workshop titled “Implementing ARIA and HTML5 into Modern Web Applications (Part Two)”.

Demonstrations of Tenon

If you’re interested in finding out more about Tenon, email me or just stop me in the hall and I’ll give you a demo.

If you’re going to CSUN I want to meet you

I love CSUN’s family-reunion-like atmosphere and getting to catch up with the many people I already know. But what I like more is meeting people I hadn’t already met. If you’re new to accessibility or we just don’t know each other yet, please just walk up and say hello. This is how I met many of the people I count among my best friends in accessibility!

Something more formal?

If you want to set up something more formal, especially for a one-on-one conversation, I strongly recommend emailing me directly. Typically what happens is that something intended to be a simple informal one-on-one get together winds up being a big group outing, so if you want to set up a private time to talk, here are some ideas.

  • Morning – I’m available all week before 8am. I’m open Tuesday and Thursday before 9.
  • Afternoon – As the day gets later, openings get more scarce. I’m currently open for lunches all week.
  • Evening – Evenings are often filled with impromptu group activities, so I won’t schedule something during the evening.

So, given the above, email me at karl@karlgroves.com to set something up!
