Practical Accessibility For Apps and Websites!
Ever wondered what you could do to make your website or app easier to access and navigate? Come join us for an amazing event where Amanda Pattridge will discuss why accessibility is important, and give practical tips to make your website and app better! For this talk, we’ll be focusing on the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). The WCAG define 4 qualities that technology should possess in order to be more accessible to all users: perceivable, operable, understandable, and robust. We’ll talk about what each of these means and why they are important, examples of how these principles translate into code, and how we can test them. Speaker: Amanda Pattridge is a software engineer at Tech Flow. She is a great teacher, having taught both coding classes and English for years. Location UE.co 808 J street San Diego, CA 92101 UE.co is not just a workspace, it's a small village complete with an indoor schoolhouse, five century-old olive trees, and local art installments.
