What’s New, In the News


Main Discussion On Today’s Episode


The team discuss methods of determining whether a website is accessible, and how to go about accessing all features of that site.



Marco demonstrates WillyWeather on a Samsung S10+, which is a very accessible and accurate weather app on both Android and iOS for those living in Australia. Taken from their website, WillyWeather uses information based on data supplied by the
Bureau of Meteorology and other sources.



Nimer discusses Linux and provides our listeners with various options as to how to go about installing the platform and various ways of obtaining assistance, whether it be on an email list or by doing your research and reading documentation.
