Coding With Accessibility In Mind 101 / Aug 20, 2019
One of the biggest mistakes in development is not making your website or app accessible from the beginning.
Many reasons are given, from it "not being in the budget" to "we don't need it for the MVP". The reality is that it should be done from the beginning. Not only are you excluding people from being able to interact with your content, but it can be more costly to revise inaccessible code later down the road. It's a complex topic with a lot to cover, so this post will not be an end-all-be-all. However, I'd like to encourage developers to learn the basics of a good foundation for building an accessible website or app, as well as questions to consider when reviewing their work.
