Building inaccessible websites excludes users and puts your employer at risk for expensive litigation. Yet so few developers understand web accessibility. Developing with accessibility in mind will increase your organization’s customer base, enhance its brand, limit legal risk, and is quite simply the right thing to do.

In this talk, accessibility specialist Alicia Evans will introduce the core concepts of web accessibility from a developer’s perspective. You will learn strategies to make your development more inclusive for everyone – from proper HTML structure to complex dynamic interactions like accordions. You will leave this talk with the resources you need to level up your accessibility skills for your current job and the next.
