Inclusive Design Workshop – Calgary UX

It’s Lien here, bringing you another blog post! Woot. This time I’ll be discussing what I learnt in the workshop I attended. This post is more for my sake because I needed a place to record my notes from this workshop, but I figured why not share the knowledge. That and it’s easier to find notes again if it’s all online.

There was pretty good presentations...
