Better understand how accessibility has an effect on the success of the business
Accessibility: the practice of making your products and website usable by as many people as possible. From a product perspective, we always want to reach more customers, and as an engineering leader, building inclusive products for those with disabilities is not only a smart business decision but also a crucial step toward remedying inequality in the industry.
In this panel, engineering leaders will look at what it means to provide quality products accessible to all. They will define accessibility and how it differs from usability, then discuss how to implement it in engineering and how to test that it’s working. You will gain a tangible understanding of what accessibility practices look like in the software development lifecycle and why it’s vital to keep these practices alive.
- Learn what accessibility is in practice and why it’s important
- Learn how to implement accessibility practices through all stages of the software development lifecycle
- Set accessibility standards for your engineering org
- Understand how to test for accessibility and how to ensure applications meet these standards
