Making stuff work for more humans, on more devices and browsers, under more conditions.
Let’s think about all the varied people that access our work, not just people that are like us.
What can give us warm fuzzy feelings, more customers, more money, and easier development? Inclusive Design, that’s what! It helps us think about all the kinds of people that could access our websites, not just people that are like us. It helps us accept the web as it is (messy, slow, and broken), not the web as we want it to be (crispy, fast, and perfect). It helps us understand how disability is a spectrum, not a binary.
In this accessibility-themed workshop, we’ll learn how we can make our sites work for more humans, on more devices and browsers, under more conditions. We’ll get hands-on with practical exercises and tutorials, and start digging at our own stuff to find the bits we can make more accessible. We’ll look at ways of testing our sites, of having better conversations about them, and will be giving and receiving high fives. :)
