Good morning,

Curious if anyone from the Fluid community in Toronto is considering attending, or perhaps presenting at, SocialTechCampToronto.  I'd like to attend, and possibly present on open source assistive technologies (NVDA, Orca, etc.), but I'd rather not go alone.

See forwarded message for details.
