How to a11y? — All you need to know about building accessible web content

Dur­ing this work­shop par­tic­i­pants will learn about the prin­ci­ples of web acces­si­bil­i­ty. Start­ing with an intro­duc­tion on the impor­tance of pro­vid­ing acces­si­ble web con­tent, we will look into the cur­rent web acces­si­bil­i­ty guide­lines and their prac­ti­cal appli­ca­tion by cov­er­ing var­i­ous aspects such as acces­si­ble design, usage of seman­tic HTML, key­board acces­si­bil­i­ty, build­ing rich acces­si­ble com­po­nents, and more.

This work­shop is suit­ed for web devel­op­ers new to the top­ic and/or those who are will­ing to broad­en their knowledge.

The goal of this work­shop is to pro­vide you with an overview of the top­ic of acces­si­bil­i­ty and equip you with the tech­niques to tack­le most com­mon acces­si­bil­i­ty pit­falls in your future projects.

The par­tic­i­pants must bring their own lap­top with a code edi­tor for HTML, CSS and JavaScript installed (e.g., Visu­al Stu­dio Code, Sub­lime Text, Web­Storm) and a work­ing Node.js installation.
