We’re excited to be offering two training sessions at BADCamp this year! Both of them focus on widening the reach of the internet and Drupal. Accessibility and contribution are close to our hearts at Hook 42 as they both are great tools for making the web a more diverse and inclusive place. The best thing about both subjects? You don’t have to know everything to dive in and get started - starting where you are is a great way to move things forward.

The June A11y Talk welcomed back Drupal Core Accessibility Maintainer, Andrew Macpherson. The “What's New with WCAG 2.1” talk discussed the new guidelines that were released in early June.

Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1) extends WCAG 2.0 and is intended as an interim until WCAG 3.0 is released. The new guidelines were needed due to advancements in technology and to fix some gaps and shortcomings in the earlier guidelines.
