Lean Accessibility (with CleAG)
Back on the schedule, and we hope no snowstorm this time.
*** Please go to the Cleveland Agile Group meetup and RSVP there as well, so they can get a count for food and chairs. ***
Making websites and apps more usable for everyone, including people with disabilities, can seem like a daunting task. In this presentation, I will explain how accessibility work doesn’t have to be overwhelming.
- The meaning and relevance of a ’shift left’ mindset.
- Integration of accessibility into your design and development processes.
- The most important tool for testing. (Hint: you already own it!)
Basic knowledge of accessibility will be helpful but not required.
Free parking is available at the LeanDog location. Drive through the parking gate (it's always up).
Food will be provided thanks to the generosity of CleAG / LeanDog.
