FCIP – Dec 5: Unleashing Inclusivity: A Roadmap To Web Accessibility

December 5, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

★ This Meetup will be in-person and via Zoom. ★

Making the web as accessible as possible is an ongoing process.

For designers, developers, website managers and business owners, accessibility is an entire layer of planning to get from point A to point B that — if done right and at the right time — can yield tremendous benefits.

And to get from here to there, you’ll need a map to help you along the way — one that’s easy to follow.

Join us on Tues, Dec 5, as Ron Zasadzinski and Graden Sikes of CodeGeek share with us a roadmap to help web developers and creators chart a path towards making the web as accessible as possible.

This roadmap includes a clear mental framework of:

  • what web accessibility entails
  • requirements to meet
  • auditing tools and techniques to use

Bonus! Brief demos and resources will be provided to help us take our next steps along the web accessibility path.

The presentation will start at 6:00pm with Q&A to follow. RSVP today!

*This talk is for designers, developers, website managers and business owners*

MORE ABOUT OUR SPEAKERS:
Ron Zasadzinski, founder and CEO at CodeGeek
Ron started CodeGeek in 2002, and since then, he and his team have worked with clients all over the U.S. to create custom websites and web apps.

Whether it’s in business or in life, Ron’s goal each and every day is to help people be the best they can be, and he’s passionate about helping make the web more accessible and inclusive for everyone.

Ron is involved in a number of ventures, including as co-owner of The Hive, co-founder of the Fort Collins Internet Professionals (FCIP) Meetup, and a flight instructor with over 30 years and 8000 hours of flying experience.

In his free time, Ron enjoys playing ice hockey, following the Artemis mission with great interest, and traveling with his wife to see the many wonders this world has to offer.

Graden Sikes, project manager at CodeGeek
Graden started his career building things in the physical world after earning his B.S. in Architecture from the University of Colorado Denver. Soon thereafter, he decided to apply his skills in the digital realm as a UX and web designer.

A very client-oriented person, Graden enjoys the fast-paced nature of web projects and the direct, personal impacts they have on people’s lives.

When not clacking away at his keyboard, you can find Graden watching movies with his wife Lily and (now big) puppy Watson, playing video games, and perfecting his deep-dish pizza recipe.
