Accessibility and UX: Ammi Embry, Front End UI Developer at Qualifacts

Ammi gets UX, as a front-end web developer, specializing in XHTML, CSS, HTML, Javascript, WAI, & Section 508; she is also proficient in PHP, Perl, and MySQL.

Here's a summary of her Accessibility talk

Accessibility is usability for disabled users. It's an overlooked, but important part of development. I'm going to discuss a few points of why it's important, and how to implement it.

    This was a really interesting subject, and definitely one that doesn't get the attention it deserves. Ammi shared a lot of great insights.
