For this event we have Rachel Nabors as our main event.

From vestibular disorders to seizures, animations can have different impacts on a user's experience. Rachel will give a talk on the accessibility challenges surrounding using animations in user interfaces. (She will also have copies of her eBook, Animation at Work, available for signing!)
