New WordPress Meetup groups have been popping out lately more and more here in Finland. Jyväskylä WordPress Meetup and Turku WordPress Meetup are the newest meetups. I visited in Jyväskylä Meetup and talked about accessible navigation patterns.
My goal was to bring awareness about accessibility. It’s not hard but needs a certain mind set:
<button>element) for activating menus? Links are for going somewhere. Do not use DIVs or SPANs. They don’t have any accessibility API build in.

I studied in Jyväskylä University back in the day and it certainly was a lot of fun. Most of my current friends are from that time period. Those were the days! (Snapping out off memories and nostalgia).
It was really cool to go back in Jyväskylä, hang out familiar places, talk about accessibility, and meet new people. Jyväskylä Meetup group was relaxed but professional. That’s my kind of group of people!
Web is for everyone. Therefore create accessible sites.
There is nothing like sunny morning run in Jyväskylä!
