3rd place award – Advanced category

The Accessibility Internet Rally (AIR) is a web design competition that increases awareness of the tools and techniques that make the Internet accessible to everyone – including people with disabilities. AIR benefits nonprofit organizations and schools in your community by providing them with free, professionally designed, accessible websites. Teams of professional web developers learn skills to create accessible web content and then use those new skills to create accessible websites for local community groups.

CF Professional Services teamed up with other local developers and created a site for the local nonprofit Hashem’s House, a post-denominational synagogue and interfaith house of prayer (http://hashemshouse.org.) Our team, named EZXS_ibility, was a group of first time entrants to the competition.  The second phase of the competition ends in March with further judging and a final award presentation at South by Southwest.
