Code for All Summit 2020: Remote Control – Inclusive Research & Testing From Anywhere
July 20 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
What will this session be about?
Led by Marisa Bernstein of Code for Canada, the goal for this session is for attendees to learn a tried-and-true approach to inclusive user research and usability testing in a remote context, and walk away with the confidence to adopt new methods in their own work.

Marisa (she/her) is Program Manager of two Code for Canada programs: Civic Hall Toronto and GRIT Toronto, where she works closely with government teams and tech and design practitioners to help make technology work better for all residents.

What is the summit?
Code for All’s 2020 Summit wishes to welcome everyone and anyone interested in civic tech to attend our free sessions. From those who have been involved in the community since its inception to those only hearing about it now – all are welcome to come and find out more, make some friends, and workshop new ways to help.
What exactly is civic tech?
Civic tech, in short, is technology that positively impacts society — but that’s not the whole story. It’s about creating civic innovation tools (tools that help make more democratic, transparent and people centered governments), but it isn’t only about the tools themselves — it’s about the process through which these tools are created. Here’s a good place to lean more.
Who is Code for All?
