WebAIM is excited to present at the Accessing Higher Ground Accessible Media, Web and Technology Conference at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Pre-conference sessions begin November 11, and the conference begins November 13th. Accessing Higher Ground is one of the premier accessibility conferences and is definitely worth the trip to beautiful Boulder, Colorado.
