Towards technical excellence

Empathy driven development

Many have heard about TDD and BDD, but what’s EDD? Empathy Driven Development!

The World Health Organisation estimates that one billion people have a disability. W3C’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines are becoming increasingly mandated by governments and are being used by many industries to make websites more accessible for people with disabilities.

Developers are often told to make their websites accessible, like it’s an easy light switch you turn on or off. But it’s not that easy. In this talk, Manoj Kumar will share some tips and tricks to build and test for accessibility manually. He will also demonstrate ways you can save time with automated accessibility testing and show how it can be added to your existing automation suite with minimal effort using tools like Selenium.
