  • CLDR Users Panel

    by Nova Patch

    After the character properties in Unicode itself, access to language and region-specific locale data is the next most popular data needed by globalized applications. This is why the Common Locale Data Repository (CLDR) was long ago spun out from one such application library's source code. This presentation will start with an introduction to CLDR and what's new in versions 27/28, and then continue with a panel discussion focused on the experience of direct consumers of CLDR data. Topics discussed will include how to use the data and what issues have been encountered using LDML and JSON format CLDR data. This discussion will also include ample time for general Q&A about CLDR.

    At 11:10am to 12:00pm, Wednesday 28th October

  • Hello, my name is __________.‎

    by Nova Patch

    Our personal identity is core to how we perceive ourselves and wish to be seen. All too often, however, applications, databases, and user interfaces are not designed to fully support the diversity of personal, cultural, and gender identities expressed throughout the world. This talk will demonstrate ways to build applications that respect users’ identities instead of limiting them.

    Topics will include:
    ◦ Input, validation, storage, and display of personal names
    ◦ Unicode usernames and solutions to security concerns
    ◦ Input and use of gender and pronouns
    ◦ Internationalization and localization considerations

    The intended audience includes programmers, UX designers, and QA testers. Together we can build inclusive software that supports diverse identities.

    At 2:00pm to 2:50pm, Wednesday 28th October
