Speaker announcement: Miikka Vento

Miikka has been working with WordPress for a few years, overseeing tens of projects ranging from simple campaign sites to large-scale multisites and high levels of API integration. Miikka focuses on “getting it done” – his motto is to enable everyone else to perform to their maximum potential. With the arrival of the so-called European Union “Accessibility Directive”, there has been a lot talk lately about the accessibility of the modern web. Most common guidelines to comply with the requirements of the directive are the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. While doing large scale project, Miikka noticed that the WCAG is not perfect – and has, in fact, some contradictions. The topic will focus on telling what to take into account while designing accessible web services and some tips for the coders as well.
