OpenSource Accessibility with Drupal

Class description

Drupal is an open source content management system that is free to download and install but accessibility does not always come free out of the box. Fortunately, Drupal uses a solid foundation for coding standards that can effectively separate data, logic, and presentation. Cliff Tyllick will explore Drupal from the perspective of a content manager and a front end developer, highlighting what each needs to know to create and maintain a fully accessible user experience within the Drupal framework. He will take the class through best practices and an understanding of the combined responsibility of all individuals contributing to the site to create content that can be successfully navigated and used by all.
