Earth Observation from Satellite
In this talk Marta will give a short overview on the Earth Observation field and the main European projects active nowadays.

How to test - practical accessibility tips
As developers you will have at one point heard of accessibility. Perhaps you found it very daunting or intimidating! In this talk Sophie gives practical tips for testing websites and apps and shows that accessibility is more than just screen readers.
Living and breathing accessibility, Sophie (1984) wants every website and app to be accessible. For everyone! Aside from working as an accessibility consultant for Eleven Ways she loves singing, improv, reading and is fascinated with Leonardo da Vinci and history.
