One of my favorite accessibility events, Inclusive Design 24, happens this week on October 10. This free, online conference wil have 24 straight hours of accessibility and inclusive design-focused talks. As usual, the schedule looks fantastic. This is a great event to tune into if you want to up your knowledge.
