15 March 2007 - 16:152nd Girl Geek Dinner

I attended my first Girl Geek Dinner on Monday (thank Manuela!), their 2nd-ever event down here. Niqui gave an interesting talk about accessibility using Flash.

I’ve never worried about Accessibility before but Niqui said that 1 in 8 people in the UK have some sort of accessibility requirement (poor sight, preference not to use mouse, RSI, hearing impairment etc) which is quite a sobering statistic. Not that I have the resources to worry about this with our ShowMeDo but, in an ideal world (with a bit more time to spare)…

I caught up with the usual crowd (Jane, Simon, Danny) and met a bunch of new people – Alan (who may be our 6th £5 App speaker), Matt Weston and Gemma of Midnight Communications.

Kudos to Niqui for the talk and roll on future events 🙂
