This episodes features accessibility guest Laura Shields from Nerdery.com in a lively discussion about web accessibility: what it means, how to do it… and most importantly, how to sell it to our clients. We can’t make the web a better place unless we can make a convincing case to our clients that it’s in their best interest to pay for it.
Accessibility or “a11y” is something that we all feel like we should be doing, but aren’t sure how to get started on. The discussion talks about how accessibility really ties into other best practices like being SEO-friendly, having a performant website, and writing good semantic HTML.
