Here in sunny San Diego, we’re hoping for sunshine and no clouds. Okay, maybe one BIG cloud.
If you’re at the CSUN Conference, why not jumpstart your Friday with a lively session on assistive technology (AT) housed in the cloud. Dana and Sharon start by taking you on a journey of the highlights of cloud computing from the 1950s through today. With only slightly less singing and animatronics than Disney’s Carousel of Progress, Dana covers the decades briefly and expertly to set the stage for how we perceive cloud computing today. And don’t forget about our stellar giveaways! They are guaranteed to keep you on your toes as you wrack your brain to solve some of our expert trivia.
By enabling an intersection of cloud computing and assistive technology, the benefits are numerous. Beyond cost and resource savings, this fusion has the potential to unlock numerous areas of service and access that might not have been achieved before for users with disabilities. Sharon will then chat about using a screen reader on a cloud network, and how to access virtualized desktops from anywhere. She’ll quell some common security myths, and close with some insight on not-so-distant future of AT on the cloud.
Get on cloud nine, and join us Friday, at 9:20 AM PST in Gaslamp A, on the 2nd Floor in Seaport Tower.
