The Keys To An Accessibility Mindset

How do you get started with web accessibility?

It's easy to get lost amongst the trees of accessibility. In this no-code talk, we will zoom out to look at the forest as a whole. Explore how assistive technologies understand, or in some cases don't understand, common design and development patterns with screen recorded demos. Without looking at a single line of code, we will learn how to make decisions at the earliest stages of design and development to positively impact our users. We will learn that accessible design is good design. And with the keys to an accessibility mindset, we will learn how to make our products more accessible in a way that feels natural.

This presentation includes a few screen-recorded videos for showing how screen readers interact with markup patterns differently. Because of this, the audio of the talk is quite important for everyone to hear.

Building Better Components — A Journey to a More Resilient Frontend

Components are at the core of modern development. However, for as much as they can help empower our work, they can harm and hinder it. Building resilient components requires careful planning and collaboration. And, of course, requires avoiding the common pitfalls of component design.

This talk will teach us how to avoid common mistakes in component design. We'll learn how to build resilient frontends that can build trust across teams and grow with our products.
