#btconf Berlin, Germany 05 - 08 Nov 2018

We are very happy that we are able to present exciting Side Events for beyond tellerrand again. All events below are listed chronological and of course the beyond tellerrand pre-conference warm-up is also happening again. Some of Side Events are free and some cost a little bit, like the Accesibility Club Conference or the additional workshop. Most of the events are separate from the main event, which means you can attend without having a beyond tellerrand ticket! The only events you need to be at the main event for are the Lunch-Time Sessions. Would be great to see you at one (or all) of the events below.

IndieWebCamp Berlin

IndieWebCamp Berlin

We’re back with yet another edition of the IndieWebCamp in Berlin. Next to the well-established edition during beyond tellerrand in Düsseldorf, it is now a fixed institution to also have an IndieWebCamp before beyond tellerrand in Berlin every year. Thanks to Joschi Kuphal, Aaron Parecki and Tantek Çelik, who organise this edition, you are invited to join us on November 3rd and 4th.

But what is an IndieWebCamp all about?

The importance of owning your data is getting more awareness every year. But there is still a lot of work to do to help people to understand what “owning your data” actually means at all. To help people getting started, we're meeting for a two-day (or three days, if you want) bar camp like collaboration in Berlin. Brainstorming, working, teaching, helping and much more. Join us on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th and get into it.

Day one is a day with discussion in a bar camp like environment. Bring a topic you'd like to discuss or join on topics as they are added to the board.

Day two is all about implementing what you discussed. Work in groups with others or simply on your own. Demos at the end of the day show what everyone worked on and has achieved.

Accessibility Club Conference

Accessibility Club Conference

While the necessity and benefits of accessible services on the web are pretty obvious, web accessibility is still not a widespread practice. Common reasonsings range from putative additional efforts, tight budgets to the misbelief that «validity equals accessibilty». In many cases, however, it seems that the majority of developers simply has no clue where to start — which comes as no surprise as most of them have never gotten their hands on assistive technology.

The Accessibility Club wants to give you the chance to get some real-world experience with assistive technology, deepen your knowledge about web accessibilty and get you in touch with like-minded webworkers. The goal is to enable you to make accessibility a natural part of your daily work and mindset.
