Inclusion & Accessibility on the Web: Harnessing Dev Power for Good

A session at Self.conference 2016

Friday 20th May, 2016

3:00pm to 3:45pm (LMT)

When writing code it’s very easy to lose sight of how much power we have as developers to do good - or cause harm - in the world.

This talk focuses on considerations for inclusivity and the technical options available to support them. The talk assumes an existing understanding of how removing biased assumptions from user experiences benefits all application stakeholders. Multiple solutions to each issue will be evaluated along with a presentation of suggested evaluation criteria for which option to chose given various contexts.

Across organizational verticals the scenarios discussed will include:
* Gender, sex, and sexual orientation topics
* Blindness, including colorblindness
* Holidays across faiths
* Language translation
