After years of prepping and months of writing and editing, I finally published my first article!
The article is focused on accessibility and assumes that you are a web developer or can understand web development to at least an intermediate level. The idea was to fill a bit of a gap since so many accessibility guides focus on the most basic, usually content bits, and we wanted to go a step further.
Published July 18, 2017 in Issue 37 of the Code4Lib Journal, authored by myself and Michael Schofield: A Practical Starter Guide on Developing Accessible Websites.
This was originally published in the November 2015 issue of the BCLA Perspectives newsletter. The original article was meant to be a short published piece in order to encourage more attendance and participation in the next Code4LibBC unconference.

For this presentation, I decided to speak more broadly on accessibility (rather than focus specifically on web accessibility), partly because it’s so short (5-10 minute lightning talk) and partly due to the fact that despite it being a “Code4Lib” regional, we wanted to promote cross collaboration across all skill and knowledge levels. I still used a technology example, but had physical space related examples as well. Continue reading “Code4LibBC: Shifting Perspectives: From Disability Accommodation to Universal Design”
As I have recently joined the code4libBC planning group, I thought I would reflect a little on how the planning happened and worked for code4lib north even though it was a while ago. Continue reading “Planning a Regional Code4Lib: North 2013”
