This year, due to family commitments, I was unable to attend GUADEC. Although the reason why I couldn’t attend made me very happy, I also was sad by the fact that I wasn’t going to be able to attend one my favourites FOSS conferences.
I have started downloading some of them and, of course, the first talk that I watched was the one given by my good friend, excellent hacker and accessibility advocate, Eitan Isaacson. In his talk, Eitan explains in a non technical way, why it is important to have accessibility in mind when designing any kind of products: from buildings to software. If you are a software designer or developer, I really recommend watching his talk. I am sure you will start thinking about accessibility when designing your next application.
