Re: Where did the blind programming site go?: was: programming tutorials

I'm coming to this thread late, but what about jamal's 
nonvisualdevelopment.org site?
It sounds like it does all the things people want.
Or is there a deficiency?

I will talk to  the people who can say yes but I think APH will give blind
programming a permanent home if people think it's a good idea.  We could run
the email list from there in fact we could run multiple and we could have a
droople page where everything is kept. The same people that work on it now
could do what little they can do an we could all share the responsibility.

I think it's the only way to go, Ken. Drupal is powerful enough to
host anything from a simple website to a large online community,
accessible both in terms of its administration & useability, & is
perfectly suited for something like this.

I've partnered w/a web developer friend of Mine, Elise Lonsdale, &
used drupal to make
http://jawsscripting.lonsdalemedia.org
We've found it to be a rewarding venture in terms of the way Drupal
works. It does have somewhat of a steep learning curve initially, but
I think that's the same w/all web development. Elise says it's a lot
easier than other CMS's she's worked with. My vote is, if u can get
it, we should do it.
