In this series, we have covered alot of areas and we have barely scratched the surface in reality. In saying this, I hope my perspectives and examples have helped you in some way to understand the importance and ease of implementation of accessibility topics to a basic degree. I also hope that you feel some confidence to go forward and expand further and advocate on the subject in your own day to day dealings, herein.
There are a few different places I would recommend you check out to continue diving into the world of accessibility, here is a list of base resources and courses I would recommend to get a deeper understanding of the fundamentals and solidify the concepts we have covered:
- Course: Udacity - Web Accessibility
- Newsletter: a11yweekly - Accessibility weekly newsletter
- Overview: Accessibility fundamentals
- Overview: WCAG
- Overview: WAI-ARIA
I just want to give a huge shout out to Marc Biemer for helping me out with proof reading the articles, it honestly was a huge help and your assistance was much appreciated as ever.

Soft skills are as critical as technical skills for a software engineer. No one works in isolation. Each person has to deal with teammates, colleagues, managers, etc. Therefore team interpersonal skills are essential too. Soft skills include things like good communication, honesty, teamwork, integrity, organization, empathy, etc.
