Another week, another episode of DevDiscuss that I couldn't wait to share with you all. This week, I was joined by guest host @s_aitchison — a software engineer here on team Forem who focuses on all things front end.
We decided to focus on the topic of accessibility for a handful of reasons. First off, making the Internet work for everyone is one of the most important jobs web developers have today. Additionally, in recent years, accessibility has thankfully come into the forefront of many software teams' minds — but we can't stop the drumbeat now. As more people pursue programming every day, accessibility needs to be a core tenet of everyone's curriculum, self-taught or otherwise.
Finally, accessibility-focused projects give way to some of the most fulfilling and fun challenges for any developer. We hope that this episode touches on all of this, sparks discussion, and gets you all the more curious about the a11y work to be done on each and every team.
