Building Accessible Interfaces: Patterns And Techniques

Tuesday, 16th – 10:40 AM

When building interfaces, often we think about making them accessible when it’s just a bit too late. What about baking accessibility into the front-end development from the start?

In this session, Sara will be building and refactoring common UI components, and share a couple of techniques she often uses to build with accessibility in mind. Even though she will be building only as many patterns as the time allows, you’ll leave with many small but important and impactful strategies that you can apply to many other UI components, as well as to your design process and coding. From this sweet series of mini component-level case studies, you will learn how to think, and code, accessibly.
