Sometimes good things take time. Sometimes life doesn’t go according to plan. So better late than never, here are my 23NTC Field Notes for all three days of the conference.
Day 1 of the 2022 conference included a keynote all about technology in nonprofits, a presentation by one of my clients, and a brand new name and logo for Washington Nonprofits!
The final day of 22NTC was a fun grab bag! I learned and talked about WordPress and CRMs, data visualization, inclusive presentations, and ended the day listening to author Saeed Jones.
Today included three really fun community conversations—the “hallway track” of this online conference—and then a lot of sessions about including stakeholders in technology projects, usability testing, and the combination of the two!
Day 1 of 22NTC is in the books! I went to lots of sessions about inclusion, disability, and accessibility. And also WordPress, of course!
I always tell my clients that they need to celebrate their victories. So it’s time to follow my own advice. Building off my site launches from last year, I wanted to quickly recap some of the other exciting things I did and built in 2021.
And that’s a wrap! The third and final day of 21NTC was a whirlwind of information, ideas, and connections. I watched presentations inclusive facilitation, long-form content, and equitable project management and design. But the keynote was the clear highlight of the day with a critical message for us all.
21NTC kept the learning and connections flowing! Here are my notes about web accessibility, diagramming as a tool for communication, iterative website improvement, and a few nuggets from a keynote conversation by Nikole Hannah-Jones.
Day 1 of NTC had me learning about discriminatory “race blind” AI, how to build equitable structures and a better nonprofit sector, consent in user experience design, more accessible data visualizations, and, of course, WordPress!
A much belated update on upcoming events, personal life, and work life.
There are great events coming up this month, June, September, and November. Get them on your calendar, learn more about the web, and come hang out with me!
My first trip to the Nonprofit Technology Conference left me with a powerful charge to intentionally question assumptions in order to build technology I want to use and a society in which I want to live.
Marc h 23-26, I am attending the Nonprofit Technology Conference in Washington D.C. Reach out if you want to say “Hi” in person!
The week of February 13, I’ll be teaching an online course for NTEN, “Anatomy of a Website Redesign.” Registration is still open!
I’ve been busy. That means I have lots of interesting things to share (including an award!) and an announcement about this blog.
This is post 5 of 7 in the series “MRW Web Design Chronicles” One of my favorite blogs, CSS Tricks, publishes a “chronicle” every once in a while to publish updates about what the author is up to. It’s a great idea and I’m going to steal it! The MRW Web Design chronicle will get … Continue reading “Chronicle V”
