March 15, 2022, marks the beginning of “Axe-con,” a free virtual event hosted by Deque.

This three-day accessibility conference will highlight best practices for building, testing, and maintaining accessible digital experiences.

Axe-con is a must-watch event for business owners, developers, designers, and accessibility professionals no matter the level of experience. Through these conversations, we can continue to take more assured steps forward towards more accessible websites and digital experiences.

There are a number of sessions set to take place over the three-day schedule to address technical topics like web forms, design principles for disability inclusion, and the future outlook for accessibility. An exciting line-up of experts in the web accessibility and inclusion space will be in attendance and on the speaker roster, providing their knowledge on these accessibility-focused topics.
