We’ve known Derek Featherstone for some time. His knowledge with Ajax and accessibility makes him a popular speaker at conferences.

He’s an internationally-known speaker and authority on accessibility and web development. He’s a top-rated speaker at UIE’s live events, most recently the 2009 Web App Summit and in last year’s Virtual Seminar, Ajax: Tips, Tricks, & Avoiding the Pitfalls. Derek is the founder of Further Ahead, a leading firm that delivers insightful and creative accessibility consulting to Fortune 500 corporations, educational institutions, public utilities, government agencies and other private sector clients.

You can see his latest thinking on Ajax, accessibility, and all sorts of other good stuff at Box of Chocolates.

Oh, and if you think Derek is attached to his keyboard, you’re incorrect. He regularly trains for and competes in triathlons.
