Speakers and Topics:
Speaker 1: Georgie Luhur (Engineer at Campaign Monitor)
“Your blog ≠ everyone else’s blog”
There are so many questions and concerns around blogging. How do I start? How do I maintain it? I don’t know what to write about! My blog looks ugly. I get so bored. No one is going to like what I write... at the end of the day, your blog is yours and yours alone. There are many concerns that people have around starting or maintaining a blog. I’ll be addressing those and giving you some helpful thoughts and suggestions on how you can avoid letting these concerns get in your way.
Speaker 2: Monica Regalado (Web Accessibility Analyst at Media Access Australia, also studying Design Computing at USYD)
“Make learning about accessibility more accessible”
Accounting for people with disabilities is too often maligned in website, app, and interface design. As a web accessibility analyst, I see these problems firsthand; as a student, I was under-prepared to deal with them. Inaccessible platforms alienate a larger demographic than many designers realise. I'll explore how accessible design is currently taught, and what we can do to change it.
Speaker 3 : Cecilia Waters and Georgie Luhur (Cecilia is a Product Manager and Georgie is an Engineer at Campaign Monitor)
“Yes you can: pathways in IT careers”
Two women share their stories on their career paths in IT and share inspiration & ideas from their journeys. Hear from Cecilia Waters, Product Manager and Georgie Luhur, Engineer - from Campaign Monitor.
