Talk 1: Brecht De Ruyte - The future of UI is "open"
When dealing with more advanced UI elements there are a lot of things that go wrong. They impact performance, accessibility and have the tendency to create frustrations along the way. In this talk, I will be introducing you to the W3C community around Open UI, while also taking a little detour with the Anchoring API. By combining these future specs we'll take a peek at the future of styling custom UI by only using HTML and CSS, giving you less frustration, performance boosts and basic accessibility out of the box. We'll also have a little look at the new selectlist and exclusive accordions

Talk 2: Roel Van Gils - Accessibility for \Lazy\ Busy Developers
Building an accessible front-end doesn’t have to be a chore. By planning ahead and applying inclusive design principles from the start, you can save precious development time and ensure accessibility without breaking a sweat. In this talk, I’ll share the best-kept secrets of accessible front-end web development.
