Accessibility - A .NET developer's perspective

Accessibility and inclusive design benefits all users; building accessible products and services isn't just a checkbox exercise or a legal requirement, it makes them inclusive. In this talk Rachel will explore and demonstrate why accessibility is important for consumers and users; why the whole development team should consider accessibility and inclusion. Rachel will also share some tips and also demo tools that will aid in accessibility testing. Speaker Rachel Breeze is a Senior Developer at Sigma, a member of the Umbraco Back Office Accessibility Team, and an Umbraco MVP. She is known to drink copious amounts of tea, and in corona free times she is a keen scuba diver. Venue This is an online event which you can watch on Twitch.
