Accessibility. There are a lot of ways to make web design more friendly to all, but this is a consideration companies often struggle with. Lagging U.S. legislation on accessibility on the web doesn’t help, but many say companies and devs should forge ahead instead of waiting on reprimand.
(One company furthering the cause is Philly’s EvoXLabs, a consultancy on accessibility best practices that our sister site Technical.ly Philly profiled here.)
Are you a developer wanting to integrate more principles of accessibility into your code? Or a product manager wondering what’s possible and expected? Join Women Who Code DC for this upcoming tech talk on accessibility. Led by Linsey Dragun, who advocates for accessibility from her role as a developer at PBS, the event will offer “simple ways to make huge improvements.”
Sounds like a great place to start. You can find out more, and RSVP, below:
