Workshop Details

Making websites accessible is extremely important but information is scarce and auditing your site often falls by the wayside. This course will give you all the skills you need to audit and fix accessibility issues on any project! Come along with Jon Kuperman and start building accessible web applications everyone can use!

Daily Schedule

We'll talk about disabilities, alternative input devices and how to solve common accessibility problems! We'll also be using an interactive website together to get hands on experience with each lesson!

Is This Workshop for Me?

Summary

This course is for anyone involved in the process of building websites and applications. Some of the code challenges will be developer focused but much of the course is well suited for designers, product managers and business folks as well!

Any Prerequisites?

  • Some JavaScript and HTML experience will make some of the exercises easier but if you don't have any you should be just fine pairing up with someone who does!
