IIDEX 2015 Inclusive Design A11Y Hackathon

#A11yCAN @IIDEX2015 was a free, 2-day Inclusive Hackathon. Participants will form teams and then, with some help from our facilitators, come up with a solution to your choice of design problems that have been collected from the disability community. You don’t have to bring anything but your experience and perspective and we will supply the rest from markers and sticky notes to circuits and 3D printers. Participants will be able to gain skills in a range areas: policy design, interface design, software/application specifications, rapid prototyping tools, 3D printers and software development toolkits as they develop their innovative approaches.

Monday, November 30th – Tuesday, December 1st, 2015
