Beat the Tsunami - Patrick Dunphy

Patrick’s goal for this session is to help demystify accessibility by demonstrating easy to use testing tools that anyone can leverage and start using immediately.

Like most developers, Patrick remembers well the questions he faced during his first forays into accessibility. Developing interfaces since '99 and working specifically with Digital Accessibility since 2007, he’s learned firsthand that with proper awareness & planning, accessibility does not have to be complicated.
