“Where Accessibility Lives” by Derek Featherstone—An Event Apart Denver 2017
You do your very best to make the things you design and build easy to use for everyone, including people with disabilities. The developer in you loves solving problems with code, automation, and a robust toolset. The designer in you craves exploration; you know that there’s more to accessibility than a checklist-based set of requirements. What’s the next step, then?
In this riveting presentation caught live at An Event Apart Denver 2017, Chief Experience Officer at Level Access Derek Featherstone shows how to take your work to a new level by integrating accessibility and inclusion into your existing design and development process. You’ll walk away with real-world examples of making accessibility live in your automation tools, style guides, pattern libraries, and design systems, ready to create a more accessible and inclusive web.
Derek Featherstone has been working as a web professional since 1999 and is an internationally known speaker and authority on accessibility and web design. Before moving to Level Access, he co-founded and for many years led the team at Simply Accessible, based in Ottawa, Canada.
