Web Accessibility is not just keyboard navigation, color contrast, or screen readers. Accessibility is a perfect indicator of the quality of a website. When a website is accessible, it usually means that it's inclusive, usable, offers a great user experience for everyone, and is also fast. Our role as developers is to create clear interfaces for people to understand and care about data, regardless of their disabilities, but we often forget to make sure that the code we write complies with the "Web Content Accessibility Guidelines" (WCAG), and the only way to achieve this is through tests, either manual or automated.
Adrian is currently working as an Accessibility Software Engineering at GitHub as part of a talented, diverse, and motivated team that will work on making GitHub and the Internet a better and more accessible place for everyone. When he's not at the office he enjoys a good read, working my way through any delicious recipe, and indulging his love for travelling to new places.
