Garbage Pail Components

Tue, 15th – 11:50 AM

Oh, the horror! Hot garbage has taken over the web. Carousel Cameron, Trappin' Tam, Shallow Dom...the gang's all here. We'll turn the "bad accessibility" dial up to 11 in order to feel the pain that users with disabilities experience on a regular basis.

Some of the patterns in this talk will be directly inspired from real life instances—because we can't even make this stuff up. By talking about the real-life practice of accessible web development, we'll be reborn and better equipped to create truly successful user interfaces.
