The web was always intended to allow everyone to share and consume information. Building websites and interfaces that can be understood by anyone regardless of their ability to see, hear, or move should be a top priority for anyone designing for the web today. In this talk we'll break down areas of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), talk about the concepts you'll want to keep in mind, and look at how you can best write front-end code to interact with assistive technologies. You'll walk away from this talk feeling more comfortable and confident with your new accessibility-driven front-end super powers ready to take on the world.
