The Israeli self-defense system, Krav Maga, was designed to quickly get regular people to a proficient level of fighting skill. Similarly, this talk is aimed at getting developers an actionable set of skills to immediately begin building accessibility into their work. This talk will discuss what accessibility is and why it’s important, run through common use cases, and share tools for developing and auditing sites for accessibility. Also, there will be cat gifs.
