Practical Digital Accessibility for Developers

Online event

1 billion persons in the world live with a disability, yet 70 percent of e-commerce, news and government websites present significant barriers to persons with disabilities. Inaccessible code isn’t just inconsiderate; it’s also bad business. It leads to companies losing clients, losing income, and potential lawsuits.

In this talk, audience members will learn the essentials of digital accessibility from a business and technical standpoint, getting practical knowledge, as well as solid development best practices that they can apply right away. In addition, we dive briefly into design practices, strategy implementation, and testing procedures that differentiate a good developer from a great one.

This workshop is the foundation every developer needs on web and mobile accessibility. With companies now demanding accessibility as a part of their brand image, now is the best time to learn these skills. In terms of results, the audience will grow out of this experience as more educated, considerate, and capable developers who understand how to approach new and existing projects with an eye for professional accessibility practices.

“Cam is one of the only people that really got me thinking about accessibility on an emotional level. He’s such a valuable resource to us especially since we do such a bad job of getting this as part of our mainstream work. So yeah, I love it”
-A. S., Sr. Product Manager
