Usability and Empathy: Writing ADA Compliant Code

This event has passed


Web accessibility is on everyone’s mind and provides us a unique opportunity to do work that can have a big impact on people’s lives. Compliance with ADA (and section 508) standards impacts applications at every level from design through implementation, but it shouldn’t be intimidating – let us help you! We’ll cover a range of topics including:

  • Why good usability goes hand-in-hand with accessibility
  • Why good code goes hand-in-hand with accessibility
  • Dos and Don’ts for compliant design
  • Common tools you can use to check out your sites (aka making your device talk to you)
  • Quick and easy implementation tips for updating your source
