My Accessibility Journey: What I’ve Learned So Far (off-site)

on A List Apart

Last year I gave a talk about CSS and accessibility at the stahlstadt.js meetup in Linz, Austria. Afterward, an attendee asked why I was interested in accessibility: Did I or someone in my life have a disability?

I’m used to answering this question—to which the answer is no—because I get it all the time. A lot of people seem to assume that a personal connection is the only reason someone would care about accessibility.

Writing CSS with Accessibility in Mind (off-site)

About a year ago I started to focus more on web accessibility. The most effective method of learning for me is teaching others. That’s one of the reasons why I’m talking at meetups and conferences and why I’m writing articles about the topic.

When can I start using CSS grid layout?” “Too bad that it’ll take some more years before we can use grid in production.” “Do I need Modernizr in order to make websites with CSS grid layout?” “If I wanted to use grid today, I’d have to build two to three versions of my website.” The CSS grid layout module is one of the most exciting developments since responsive design. We should try to get the best out of it as soon as possible, if it makes sense for us and our projects.
