Share Building Products for the Blind w/ Sidewalk Labs' Engineer

Event Details

Neha will be sharing a few projects she worked on for the visually impaired. The first was in collaboration with TechBridgeWorld, an organization that facilitated the implementation of accessible technologies for developing communities. The second was during her time at Google Maps.

Key takeaways:
-Speaking to your target users is critical when developing a product.
-Rethinking a core feature is totally normal -- thoughtful iteration can lead to dramatically better experiences.
-Working at a larger company is not at odds with building what you're passionate about.

Meet the Speaker: Neha Rathi

Neha is the primary front end developer for Flow, Sidewalk Labs' mobility subsidiary.

Prior to joining Flow, Neha worked on Google Maps in San Francisco. She is responsible for the "popular times" feature as well as keyboard exploration, a screen-reader-compatible tool that makes Maps more accessible for visually impaired users.

A Virginia native, Neha completed her B.S. in Computer Science and M.S. in Human-Computer Interaction at Carnegie Mellon University. In her free time, Neha enjoys running, cooking, and traveling.
