Let’s make accessibility the next big thing

It was during the inaugural WordCamp Europe that I first met Rian. It was my first WordCamp ever, as for many others. I met Rian on Contributors Day in the accessibility track, which was also my first contact with how WordPress faces accessibility. Yes, I was aware of various accessibility issues and how people with disabilities use the web, but that was the point, that first Contributors day of mine, when I realised how important this work is.

Since then I followed Rian and the efforts of the entire WordPress accessibility team. Their job is the important one of not only improving accessibility in our WordPress world but building awareness for it too. They work hard every day to make WordPress, its plugins and themes accessible to everyone, yet, we can be unaware of that. This is a story about WordPress and its accessibility team.

Counting Down To WCEU: Looking At Paris From Above

Next June, WordCamp Europe will be held in Paris. Thousands of WordPress fans will gather to share and contribute to what is currently one of the biggest open source projects. As you may know, each edition of the WordCamp Europe is held in a different city. We think it is a great way to enlighten the European communities diversity. This year, we thought that it would be a good idea to bring out the host city more than we did the previous years so that attendees can take the most out of their travel.

WordPress is one of the most inclusive pieces of software today, and WordCamps — conferences about WordPress itself — are too. To make each WordCamp as inclusive as possible, and especially a WordCamp as big as WordCamp Europe, we really, really need your help. Albert Schweitzer, a German philosopher, born in the late 19th century once said – ”Wherever you turn, you can find someone who needs you. Even if it is a little thing, do something for which there is no pay but the privilege of doing it. Remember, you don’t live in the world all of your own.” And that is the real truth. We don’t live in a world alone. As individuals, we can do all so much; but if we work together, there is no limit to what we can achieve.

At WordCamp Europe, we need your help. We are building the biggest volunteer team ever, as we’re trying to accommodate 3000 people that will learn and contribute to WordPress during the three amazing days. You can apply to volunteer today, but if you are still thinking about it – read what our past WCEU volunteers told us about their experience during the event.
