Accessibility is a very important, but often neglected aspect of web applications. The goal of this talk is to spread awareness about accessibility and motivate to design, code, and test with inclusion, diversity, and empathy in mind. The audience will be able to apply the concepts learned within their projects empowering everyone to build accessible applications.

About GAAD - Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) is a worldwide momentum that was started with an objective to create a platform to raise awareness about accessibility. It targets developers, designers, and other creators to put a greater focus on digital accessibility and inclusion for people across the world who have disabilities and impairments. It’s celebrated on the third Thursday of May each year and this year it was celebrated on 21st May 2020.
