Description

Over the years we’ve seen how Accessibility applies to the physical world: many locations provide helpful features that make life easier and more accessible for people with disabilities, but Accessibility in technology is often overlooked, thus excluding many people from access to basic services.

Accessibility has become a necessary development standard when building websites and applications. This workshop will provide an overview of web accessibility and focus on hands-on practice writing accessible HTML and CSS. We will cover the most up to date Website Content Accessibility Guidelines and review different accessibility audit tools that you can use to ensure your sites are in compliance.

This class will run:

  • July 20 9:00am - 4:00pm

  • July 21 9:00am - 4:00pm

What students will learn:

  • Web Accessibility principals and their importance in web development

  • How to write accessible HTML and CSS

  • How to use accessibility audit tools to ensure sites are in compliance

Who should take this workshop?

Are you interested in ensuring everyone has access to content online? Have you heard about Accessibility guidelines, but wondered how to put them into practice? Accessibility requirements are an essential development standard, so make sure you have this fundamental knowledgebase to ensure an inclusive web experience for all.
