Code Louisville Office Hours 2024

  • When: April 15, 2024 @ TBD
  • Where: Virtual
  • My Talk: Neurodiversity & Networking: Breaking the Awkward Silence

Everyone is neurodiverse because we all think about the world a little differently. Our minds perceive things differently because our brains each process information in a slightly unique way. Even more so when you consider that we each have different lived experiences that have shaped our perceptions and mannerisms.

At the same time, we understand the importance of networking in our personal & professional lives. However, making the necessary connections can be difficult when you feel like you are too different from everyone else.

Join me as we discuss the challenges, particularly with regards to cognitive differences and disability, that you may experience with networking. We'll learn how to fine tune how you network for you.

This talk will be open to current and past Code Louisville / Code Kentucky students, mentors, and staff.

More details will be provided as they are made available.

OMG!Con

This is a bit of a different direction from my usual accessibility discussions. In this talk I am wanting to share about my all time favorite hobby, games.

Whether it be board games, card games, table top, Dungeons and Dragons, or video games. I absolutely love games! Games of all sorts can be amazing ways to form new connections, let off some steam at the end of a long day, or just keep your mind busy. It is no wonder there are some positive health benefits to be had from a variety of games.

However, it can be difficult sometimes to find a game that works for you, and not just because it may be hard to find the type of game that works for you. Sometimes, it can be difficult to find the game you physically can play. Games can be inaccessible just like the rest of society. They can have barriers that prevent people from participating.

In this talk, I'll share:

  • What barriers can exist in games
  • What accessibility options are already being used for a variety of game platforms
  • Things you can do to make your existing games accessible to your friends
  • Resources for helping you find games you can all enjoy

This talk will be open to attendees of OMG!Con Opens in new window. More details will be provided as they are made available.

Let's learn what it means to test for Accessibility. How do we determine what is accessible? What tools do we use? How do we put together a test plan?

More details will be provided as they are made available. You can also learn more at the KCDC site Opens in new window.
