Today I went to the Forward 5 > JS conference. This was my first tech conference since I finished Hackbright. I was so excited to have a nametag that had the word “software” on it!
Another enjoyable speaker was Estelle Weyl, who spoke on a panel about animations, but more interestingly, gave a talk about Inclusive Code. At Hackbright, during the lecture on HTML and CSS, we learned about using labels for accessibility. Estelle’s talk really helped me to understand the importance of designing websites for all users. She explained the different types of disabilities and showed examples of how to code in a way that enabled users with varied disabilities to use the web. On top of this, she was able to do it using significantly fewer lines of code and faster load times!
