The Australian Web Industry Association is doing it again.  Putting on one of those must go to educational web events.  This one goes under the moniker of Ideas 5.

They are having an evening of discussions with leading Australian accessibility experts Roger Hudson and Andrew Downie.   Roger will be giving the low down on the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines Version 2 (WCAG 2), while Andrew will be presenting some practical advice on PDF Accessibility.   There is also the usual round of networking with your web industry peers and a cash bar.

When: Wednesday 22nd April, from 7:00pm

Where: The Melbourne Hotel, 942 Hay Street, Perth

Cost: $40 for AWIA Members

Now if you are fully up to date, you will know that WCAG 2 has been ratified by the W3C, but it yet to be adopted here in Australia.  However I can say that it is very close to happening.   So this event would be an ideal time to get your brain space around the new accessibility guidelines.

Okay I know there is lot of PDF use out there as a cheap web publishing means, so it would also be a good idea to also come along and see first hand what type of issues that our bad PDF documents are causing accessibility wise on the web.   So you get two must see events for one!  Cool, eh.

Now what you waiting for go on, go get a ticket, yes right now. I hope to see you at Ideas5 to learn all about WCAG 2, PDF Accessibility and to have a drink or two.
