Docker containers are a popular way to manage package applications, which provides many benefits. In this session, we'll cover the basics of running an application in a container using Kubernetes, the industry standard container orchestration platform. We will cover everything from creating your first container to deploying it on a cluster. We will also cover some concepts to expand our simple example to show how it would work in real-world scenarios. Here are the setup instructions to be ready for this session. https://kube.iu.edu/training/kube-101/overview
You want to test your website or web-based app for accessibility, but where do you start? We’ll walk you through our 7-step process that will help you find accessibility problems, demonstrating tools and methods to uncover common issues. You will have the opportunity to assess a page, practicing each step. Our seven steps are 1) visual inspection, 2) keyboard and focus, 3) automated tools, 4) color contrast, 5) screen readers, 6) magnification, 7) code inspection. We will demonstrate each step, highlighting the types of issues that step is useful for finding and why this check is necessary. After each step participants will have time to practice.
There are many web form options available to us for collecting data at IU. Whether you are using Google Forms, WuFoo, Form Assembly, MachForm, FireForms, or something else, there are commonalities to all of them. Let's discuss the tools we are using, how we are using them, and see if we can solve some issues together. Session outline: 1. Brief introduction of myself and how we use forms at the Kelley School of Business. 2. Discussion from participants about how they are using forms. 3. Discussion around issues related to forms and how we can solve them together. 4. Wrap up discussion.

Product features implemented without accessibility considered upfront are prone to uncertainty, rework, and a poor or hopeless experience for those who use assistive technology. In contrast, teams release higher-quality features in less time when accessibility is part of the design process. Go beyond validating WCAG success criteria. Improve the development process, and design a better experience for your users. During this workshop, participants will: 1. Learn how a screen reader works and how it is used 2. Study accessibility features, such as roles, names, focus and cursor handling, tab order, and ARIA 3. Examine wireframes, and discuss how screen reader users may or should experience those interfaces 4. Annotate wireframes to communicate accessibility expectations to the product team Chris Basham is a user experience designer in Enterprise Student Systems, specializing in accessibility, front-end development, and design systems.

Terraform is a powerful multi-cloud "infrastructure as Ccode" tool that helps you provision and manage resources effectively anywhere. In this workshop, we'll introduce basic AWS concepts and write Terraform code to incrementally create AWS resources. Finally we'll deploy a simple application to the cloud and tear everything down at the end. Prior AWS knowledge is not required. Requirements: - an AWS account (if you don't already have one, sign up for free credits at https://aws.amazon.com/free/) - AWS CLI installed (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/cli/latest/userguide/cli-chap-install.html) - AWS credentials configured (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/cli/latest/userguide/cli-configure-files.html#cli-configure-files-where) - Terraform CLI installed (https://learn.hashicorp.com/tutorials/terraform/install-cli) To ensure a speedy and productive workshop, please have these requirements ready before coming. Thank you!
