MDCFUG Meetings on Breeze / April's meeting was great!

As May's MDCFUG meeting is coming up tomorrow tonight, I want to be sure everyone knows that you can still revisit any meetings you may have missed over the past several months.  Since December 2006, we have been recording the MDCFUG meetings using Adobe Breeze, and those recordings are posted on the MDCFUG Past Meetings page, at http://www.mdcfug.com/meetings.cfm.

Last month, we heard from 2 fantastic speakers, and if you missed that meeting you can still catch it now!  Daniel Daugherty spoke on 'AJAX with CF and Java' , and Vanessa Howle spoke on 'What is new in Accessibility'.  They each referenced each other's experience during the presentations, to assure us that yes, even an AJAX site can be accessible!  Listen to these two speakers and learn how.

One note about the Breeze videos: sometimes the audio has been less consistent than the video, but we're getting better at it!  Both Daniel's and Vanessa's voices come through loud and clear.  You do have to wait a couple minutes at the beginning for the audio to kick in ... but be patient!  It's worth it.

Also note that you can come back to http://www.mdcfug.com/meetings.cfm about 48 hours after any MDCFUG meeting, to download the PowerPoint presentations and any provided files, as well as to view the recorded meeting.

Vanessa Howle's Presentation Materials

We would like to let you know about files that Vanessa Howle will use in her presentation. You can download presentation materials via the following links.

- Accessible Web Applications
- Section 508 Standard
- The Guide to Completing the Section 508 Evaluation Template

Have Fun!

MDCFUG 4/10/07: AJAX w CF and JAVA & What's New in Accessibility

You are invited to Maryland ColdFusion User Group Meeting Tonight!

6:30pm – "AJAX with CF and JAVA" with Daniel Daugherty
8:00pm – "What's New in Accessibility" with Vanessa Howle
(Times are Eastern Standard Time)

Topic: "AJAX with CF and JAVA"

AJAX lets you create interactive website like Google maps. Learn how to integrate AJAX with
ColdFusion and Java.

Bio: Daniel Daugherty is currently the Product Architect for Nucleus Solutions. He has been
developing and designing application for ColdFusion for over 5 years.

Daniel Daugherty can be reached at daniel_cfug (at) danield.us..

Topic: "What's New in Accessibility"

As things have been progressing with the internet and ajax technology, it's not as simple as it was
in the past to implement Section 508 compliancy in products just by using the 16 'rules' of Section
508. Also the Access Board is going through a review and refresh and will be changing the standards
and requirements within this year/18 months for future 508 compliancy.

Just making certain alt tags exist is no longer a baseline for compliancy especially with SCORM and
LMS learning systems that the goverment is turning to more and more. I have been tackling this very
issue at my job and had a fair amount of indivduals who were frustrated by the lack of guidance at
this point for indivduals whose jobs are to enfore and attempt 508. One key is the old 'use the tab
order'. That does not work anymore especially in ajax, weblogic. BEA beahive, etc.

Vanessa Howle can be reached at vhowle (at) juno.com.
