Get the most out of #ID24

Posted on Friday, 2 June 2017 by Billy Gregory

InclusiveDesign24.org For those of you who are not aware, #ID24 (Inclusive Design 24) returns for another 24 hours of live accessibility talks on 9 June starting at midnight UTC/GMT (here is a handy countdown clock). We here at The Paciello Group are really proud of the schedule we’ve put together and we’re looking forward to hosting a fantastic group of presenters.

I thought I’d take this opportunity to share some suggestions on how to maximize the value of #ID24 and get the most out of the 24 hours.

Spread the word!

What good is a party if no one shows up? We need your help spreading the word about #ID24 around the world. Please share the #ID24 programme with all your contacts, using the #ID24 hashtag where appropriate. And don’t forget our URL: InclusiveDesign24.org

Turn us on

Work in an office? Have a board room? Well then… we have a YouTube playlist for #ID24, why not throw the event up in a board room and leave it playing for the day?

Lunch and Learn

There may be no such thing as a “free” lunch, but there can be a free lunch and learn! Why not organize a viewing party for the lunch talks in your time zone and get together, learn, and discuss as a team. While you’re at it, why not pick up the tab for a few pizzas and treat your team? They deserve it!

Keep the party going

#ID24 runs for 24 hours so no matter what timezone you’re in, chances are pretty good you’ll be able to catch us after work hours. Why not organize an event, or viewing party, or whatever? Accessibility should be fun!

These are just a few suggestions; I’d love to hear what you come up with. Share below and let us know how things went!

No matter how you choose to celebrate #ID24, we hope you have a great day and we appreciate you taking the time to support it.
