Tech Talk: Accessibility – Making the Web More Inclusive



What is accessibility? Who benefits from accessibility? What are the standards for web accessibility, and what can you do as an engineer to make your websites more accessible?

This special Tech Talk will be led by Kailee Pedersen, Software Engineer at Twitch & Codesmith Part-Time Remote Immersive Alum, introducing engineers to web accessibility and sharing various techniques for improving web accessibility, with a focus on frontend development. The presentation will also explore Twitch’s approach to accessibility and provide helpful resources and documentation for engineers looking to learn more. Kailee will be available for a Q&A following the presentation.

This is an introductory-level presentation with no prior knowledge of accessibility required, but basic knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript is recommended.
