Léonie Watson, Director at TetraLogical, will be speaking at Joy of Coding in Rotterdam today. Joy of Coding is a one-day conference that covers "diverse aspects of the craft, reflecting recent trends in industry and academia, as well as a serious amount of joy".
Léonie's talk, Bag of Spanners, gets back to basics on accessibility engineering and accessibility mechanics in the browser:
Implementing accessible code can sometimes feel like the proverbial bag of spanners - something thrown together in ways that will probably give you (or someone using your product) grief.
It doesn't have to be like this though.
With an understanding of how accessibility mechanics work in the browser, knowledge of how to provide or polyfill accessibility semantics, and a little bit of elbow grease, you can turn your bag of spanners into a useful set of tools.
We like to listen. If you have a project, product, problem, or idea that you want to discuss, get in touch!
