2:00pm to 2:50pm
Our personal identity is core to how we perceive ourselves and wish to be seen. All too often, however, applications, databases, and user interfaces are not designed to fully support the diversity of personal, cultural, and gender identities expressed throughout the world. This talk will demonstrate ways to build applications that respect users’ identities instead of limiting them.
Topics will include:
◦ Input, validation, storage, and display of personal names
◦ Unicode usernames and solutions to security concerns
◦ Input and use of gender and pronouns
◦ Internationalization and localization considerations
The intended audience includes programmers, UX designers, and QA testers. Together we can build inclusive software that supports diverse identities.
