Symposium topics

The Plone Symposium in Dresden focused on the opening keynote from Anne-Marie Nebe on accessibility and why web accessibility is so important for user-centered software development. The Humanities and Social Sciences Department of the TU Dresden contributed with their expertise on the linguistic and visual implementation of a barrier-free web presence.
