Learn about open source and web accessibility at the Folklife Festival!

We just learned that accessibility guru Jon Gunderson will be a part of the University of Illinois exhibit at the year’s Smithsonian Folklife Festival on the National Mall next week!

Jon Gunderson at the University of Illinois in Urbana/Champaign is working on open source tools for evaluating web accessibility through the OpenAjax Alliance.

He is part of University of Illinois Exhibit at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival on the Capitol Mall in Washington, DC  (June 27th – July 1st).

Jon invites people who are interested in learning more about the open source tools and the rules for evaluating WCAG 2.0 compliance to stop by the exhibit.
The exhibit is open from 11:00am to 5:00pm daily.
