Registration: https://www.accessibilityonline.org/cioc-508/session/?id=110675

What does it mean to incorporate accessibility into the IT lifecycle? What is the Agile Development process, and how can agencies deploy it while addressing their agency’s accessibility needs? Attend this webinar presented by Mark Urban, HHS Section 508 Operations Board Co-Chair and CDC Section 508 Coordinator, also serving as the Section 508 technical expert and as a critical partner in the HHS Enterprise IT Lifecycle Process.

Mr. Urban will share how his agency integrates accessibility into the IT lifecycle. Drawing from his experience at the CDC, Mr. Urban will explain how to incorporate accessibility into an agency IT development program that creates, designs, acquires, uses, and deploys IT. This webinar will provide an insider’s assessment of how one agency successfully incorporates accessibility into the engineering and deployment of large systems; meets challenges presented by such products as Agile; and, the tradeoffs with large customizable off the shelf software packages.

  • Presenter: Mark Urban, HHS Program Team Co-Chair and CDC Section 508 Coordinator, HHS
