Intro to Web Accessibility
Gerard K. Cohen
Workshop Date: 07/30/16

This full day course will serve as crash course into web accessibility, either for empathetic/ responsible developers, or developers that require accessibility for government/ education projects. We will go over the official web accessibility guidelines, the different disabilities we need to cater to on the web, and practical examples of how to develop for accessibility. Topics would include proper web semantics, document structure, forms, tables, images/ multimedia, and a little bit of advanced accessibility with JavaScript and ARIA. Finally, we will go over a few testing tools to work into a developers workflow. A participant will leave with an understanding of what/ why of accessibility, and real-world techniques to improve access of their projects for everyone.
