The TPG Bug Bash

Posted on Friday, 14 March 2014 by Léonie Watson

At TPG we test websites, applications and apps for accessibility, with lots of different browsers and Assistive Technologies (AT). It means we get to play with some shiny tech, but it also means we find a lot of browser and AT bugs along the way.

We really like finding out the cause of these bugs, and sharing what we find with browser and AT vendors. We figure we can do a much better job with a little help from our friends in the accessibility community though!

We could use help with tracking down bugs, creating test cases and filing bug reports. All AT users, QA testers, web developers, vendors, and general accessibility
enthusiasts are hereby invited to drop by to help bash some bugs or just hang out!

Join Billy Gregory, Hans Hillen, Karl Groves, Léonie Watson and Steve Faulkner for the TPG Bug Bash at CSUN 2014:

  • Day: Thursday 20th March
  • Time: 5.30pm to 6.30pm
  • Venue: Suite 3233, Harbour tower, Manchester Grand Hyatt

You can track updates for the TPG Bug Bashers meetup with the #TPGBB hashtag, or check back to this page for news.

We’ll bring the drinks, snacks and bugs… You grab your favourite tech and meet us there!

  1. I’m definitely hoping to stop by. I can think of at least a couple accessibility bugs that I wouldn’t mind squashing.

Sometimes people ask me where to go for help making their web sites accessible and TPG is always the first thing on my mind because people like Steve Faulkner are right there at the forefront of pushing web accessibility forward. They totally 'get' that to be truly effective in this area you need to understand the whole accessibility ecosystem from assistive technology, to accessible applications, to web standards and so on… this kind of expertise is rare.
