Marcy Sutton is a Lead Software Engineer in Developer Relations at Gatsby, a remote startup and modern website generator for React. Previously, she worked on the open source axe-core accessibility testing library and the Angular framework.
In 2016, O’Reilly gave Marcy a Web Platform Award for her work in accessibility, and she’s now a co-founder of the nonprofit Accessibility Seattle Foundation and meetup group. On an ideal day, Marcy would like to put the finishing touches on an article or workshop materials from her van and head out on a mountain adventure.
Garbage Pail Components
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.
