Due to demand we have added 10 extra tickets to each of our seminars. You can buy these direct here.
This month we are running the first in our new series of WordPress Breakfast & Lunch seminars. These events are hosted by Make Do, a Yorkshire-based WordPress development, design and support agency and are free of charge and open to anyone.
The seminars will be followed up by our standard WordPress meetup. All three events are hosted at the Showroom Cafe Bar, 15 Paternoster Row, Sheffield, S1 2BX.
9:30 & 12:30 – Free breakfast & lunch seminars
Both sessions include food and refreshments and are totally free to attend. The tickets are split so you can choose to attend both events or just join us for either the breakfast or lunch sessions.

Accessibility and WordPress
12:30 – 14:00 – Lunch seminar
Good accessibility is the most important part of any website. This is especially key for public sector, government and charity websites who run the risk of excluding vulnerable people from their websites.
In this session, Matt Watson (Development Lead at Make Do) will talk about his experience with accessibility and cover topics that are likely a lot broader than you might think. Matt will cover important areas such as, UX, WCAG, optimisation and performance and even SEO because remember, Google is blind!
