A web for anyone, anywhere, anytime

The web is designed to be accessible by default, but we developers made a mess of it along the way. We exclude a large group of people while the web is such an intrinsic part of our daily lives nowadays.


In this talk, Rowdy will go over common mistakes and show solutions to improve your website for persons with disabilities by using semantic HTML and ARIA attributes.

He will also discuss practical examples to make websites more enjoyable and usable for every user, based on their current situation.
