Subject: INVITE: Open Developer Day at FCC


We'd like to try something new, and we want you to be a part of it.

On Monday, November 8th, the FCC will sponsor its first-ever Open
Developer Day at the commission's HQ in Washington, D.C.

This event follows a tradition that has brought together developer
communities from across the world to move technology forward.

At our Open Developer Day, we're inviting a wide group of developers and
accessibility innovators to collaborate with experts from the FCC and
across the tech sector.  Think of it as a "digital barn raising" to
reimagine the way that citizen developers can innovate around
accessibility tools and promote open government.

Engineers from the Yahoo! Accessibility team and Yahoo! Developer
Network will be providing technical instruction for some of their
technologies that support working with web-based information and their
ongoing work in accessibility.

Join us as we take another step toward citizen participation in open
