Hello:

Next week I will be speaking at a conference hosted by Microsoft. My talk
will be next Tuesday at 12 pm Pacific time, and my topic is Accessibility
during COVID. The conference is free for everyone and mostly a Java
developer conference, but they asked that I speak about accessibility.

Below is a longer invite to the event. Please pass this on to any of your
friends who might want to attend and see my talk or the many other talks
for developers.
