Another favorite:

Well, I've never plucked a rooster
And I'm not too good at ping pong
And I've never thrown my mashed potatoes
Up against the wall
And I've never kissed a chipmunk
And I've never gotten head lice
And I've never been to Boston in the fall

@erunyon I probably find myself singing “the pirates who don’t do anything” most often. Also the hairbrush song.

I’ve had this stuck in my head all morning. I wonder if anyone else remembers this song. :)

Cause he loves you cheeseburger with all his heart
And there ain’t nothin' gonna tear you two apart
And if the world suddenly ran out of cheese
He would get down on his hands and knees
To see if someone accidentally dropped some cheese in the dirt
And he would wash it off for you
Wipe it off for you
Clean that dirty cheese off just for you!

Very niche for sure, but Firefox Nightly is the first browser shipping `@​media (scripting: none)` to detect disabled JavaScript in CSS.

@miss_jwo the experience I had kept me thinking “how is there not an easier way to do a whole site?!?!” So I’m excited to test this out :)

@miss_jwo OMG Thank you! I needed this a few weeks ago, and will definitely be archiving this information for the next time.

2023 proposals are due today!

You can submit a proposal to present in person or remotely. Our Call for Presenters webpage has a session ideas document if you need inspiration.

For 2023, WPCampus is back to hosting in-person events. This year, we are taking a few steps to convert our annual in-person event to a more hybrid format.

- In-person and remote presentations
- Discounted in-person student ticket
- Online-only tickets

Our call for proposals ends this Friday, March 31. If you work in , , or , we'd love to learn from you.

Happy Friday, everyone!

A reminder that next week Friday (March 31) is the deadline to submit proposals for 2023!

We have opened the schedule for remote presentations. If you can't join us in person, we'd love to have you share with our community remotely.

I make a Twitter post for the first time in months and within five minutes I already have a random man giving me unsolicited advice about things I already know.

The news of Lance Reddick's sudden passing yesterday was sharp. What a loss. Most of the headlines mentioned his roles in The Wire and John Wick, but to me, he will always be Phillip Broyles. RIP. 💔

I couldn’t attend this year but am more than happy to help donate to NV Access in support of their event and this wonderful organization. Join me if you can!

The survey is still open:

If you have not filled it out yet, do so.

Also, the results are quite interesting and are a good compare / contrast to the WebAIM survey.

One of my clients needed me to build an accessible dropdown menu for a horizontal layout. Pretty straightforward.

So I decided to build a pretty basic-looking menu for the framework and share it online.

Let me know what you think:

I submitted a workshop about front-end development to (this October in Buffalo, NY), and I'm really hoping this one gets picked! Last year, my workshop on Svelte was selected but then canceled.

Other than web accessibility, front-end development is my wheelhouse. It's what I do. This would be a lot of fun.

I am so grateful to the community for all it has given me. I will always be a member, but after 8 years, my journey as a leader will end in December.

After a year of work, WPCampus officially ends our leadership transition and announces our inaugural Board of Directors.

It's been a blessing. I can't wait to see what happens next for this lovely group of humans.
