► The Talks 🎤

👉Talk 1: Becoming an accessibility-focused developer by Suzanne Aitchison

In a sector where we're encouraged to "move fast and break things", how can we make sure accessibility isn't overlooked or thrown in the backlog for "later"? This talk looks at how we, as developers, can start placing accessibility at the heart of every piece of code we push to review.

I'll take you through some starting principles, key tools, quick-win refactoring priorities, and everyday practices for verifying your code in the browser.

Suzanne is a software developer passionate about creating accessible web experiences. She is the creator and maintainer of Up Your A11y, a web accessibility resource aimed primarily at React developers.

Currently working for Nucleus Financial, she has a wide range of experience with national brands such as the BBC and Sainsbury's Bank.
