Patrick H. Lauke works as an accessibility consultant for The Paciello Group. In a previous life he was a web evangelist in the developer relations team at Opera Software ASA, and before that he worked as a web editor for a large UK university for nearly 10 years. He’s been involved in the discourse around web standards and accessibility since 2001, speaking at conferences and actively participating in initiatives such as the Web Standards Project (WaSP). An outspoken accessibility and standards advocate, Patrick favors a pragmatic hands-on approach over purely theoretical, high-level discussions.
