Brad Frost is the creator of This Is Responsive, a collection of patterns, resources and news to help people create great responsive web experiences. He also created Mobile Web Best Practices, a resource site that lays out considerations for creating great mobile web experiences.
NAGW also welcomes Derek Featherstone. Derek is an internationally-known speaker and authority on accessibility and web design. He works with a great team at Simply Accessible, based in Ottawa, Canada.
NAGW has a great line-up of pre-conference training workshops that will give you hands-on, in-depth training on a broad spectrum of topics.
We’re very excited about our Friday Focus topic: Emergency Online Communications.
Keynoting Friday is James Garrow from the City of Philadelphia. His presentation, Saving Lives 2.0: How Social Media will Change Disasters and Response, will be followed by three sessions:
- Case Studies: Lessons Learned
- Organize, Strategize, Plan, Implement
- “It Can’t Happen Here”—Preparing for the Unthinkable
Anyone responsible, or potentially responsible, for government communications during a disaster will benefit from the informative presentations and stimulating discussion.
