Many developers have only a little or blurred understanding of what accessibility means, of course, accessibility can be a complex and difficult topic but understanding it, its scope and its impact can make you a better and inclusive web developer.

In this meetup, weโ€™ll uncover the hidden mysteries of web accessibility and demystify what a better web looks like with a Practical Accessibility Workshop and talks on Accessibility in Media, Design and JavaScript.
