Details

Join us for a talk about automated accessibility testing in component driven development! Howie Bollinger, a front end developer at RedShelf, will talk about building accessible software from individual components that are tested and reusable. Here’s more information about his presentation:

No Bad Legos: A Toy Box For Everybody

People often like to think of a piece of software as greater than the sum of its parts. But what if the individual parts are garbage? Using component driven development, we can make sure the building blocks of our applications are robust, reusable, and tested. When we break development down in this way, we can give each individual component the attention it needs in regards to accessibility.

This meetup is perfect for everyone, but in particular, developers.
