Quick wins for an accessible website

Session details

In this talk I'll demonstrate tips and tricks based on configuration and code examples to make your website (more) accessible.

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) specify which requirements a website should meet to be accessible for everyone regardless of device, location or disability. Since September 2018 they’re not “just” guidelines anymore, they are obligated rules for (public) websites of EU state members. So there’s no excuse left to ignore the requirements.

No worries! We will guide you through questions like: Which Drupal modules are useful for accessibility? What kind of configuration promotes it? How could you structure your HTML in twig? How can CSS help you?

Quick wins for you, a huge win for an accessible web.

Drupal apprentices

The best people to train new developers are developers

The Drupal Apprenticeship Scheme will be running a London intake in March. If you are interested in hiring an apprentice or know someone who would benefit from the scheme please get in touch via the link below.

  • Created and run by experienced developers
  • Teaches core skills and best practice
  • Extensive support for businesses and teams

We are also really keen to hear from people who might be interested in mentoring, training and helping us to develop and review training materials to make sure they stay absolutely current and relevant.
