Start: 
2017-05-18 12:00 - 13:00 America/New_York
Organizers: 
Event type: 
Online meeting (eg. IRC meeting)

The DrupalCon BoF was a great opportunity to meet together as a group...let’s extend that community by meeting virtually every month for an hour. During this time we will start with some announcements, then move on to an in-depth topic by a guest speaker, and wrap-up with some Q&A time.

Since we are all on different time zones and have various commitments, the in-depth speaker will help choose the meeting time each month. Hopefully having this kind of variability will give more people the opportunity to attend a session in real time. Each meeting will be recorded and available to the public, unless otherwise noted.

This is a great opportunity to learn more about accessibility in the Drupal community and beyond! If you have a topic you wish to hear more about OR if you want to speak to the group, let me know in the main Drupal Accessibility Slack channel (#accessibility) or on Twitter @cariefisher

Thanks much!

Format:
1. Intros / Recaps / Announcements (~10 min)
2. In-depth topic (~20-30 min)
3. Q&A time (~15 min)
4. Closing comments (as time allows)

Future Events and Dates

Missed this one as I just found out about it but would be keen to know about future dates, not so much at the moment to participate as I must admit clients still asking for D7 at moment so I feel out of the loop with D8 a11y initiatives, but keen to learn about a11y in D8 and where the direction is going.

Also keen to know is there a slack channel? Been out of the loop on communications in the community and it seems most are now using Slack over IRC?

hi @amaree! here is more info

hi @amaree! here is more info on some groups using Slack in Drupal - https://www.drupal.org/slack
once you join the main Drupal slack channel, you can find smaller sub-group channels, including the #accessibility one. not sure how it compares to IRC, but seems to be an easier UI for communication for some. hope to see you there!
