Translating Design Wireframes into Accessible HTML/CSS

Join this live, 2-day workshop on Tuesday, May 18th from 11:30AM - 2:30PM ET and Wednesday, May 19th from 11:30AM - 2:30PM ET.

In celebration of this year's Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD), Deque is offering a free 2-day virtual workshop (6 total hours) for front-end developers and designers seeking practical accessibility skills that you can apply on the job. Attendees should be comfortable with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript and have a basic understanding of what accessibility is.

Workshop Overview

The most efficient way to build accessible websites and apps is to “shift left” by incorporating accessibility testing into the earliest stages of your development and design process.

We will walk you through the process of analyzing a wireframe from an accessibility perspective, making coding decisions to optimize for accessibility, implementing that code, testing your code, and troubleshooting. 

This 2-day online workshop will take the form of a sprint in miniature. You will work with Deque experts to…

  • Learn which accessibility-specific annotations should be made for your wireframes
  • Turn those wireframes into requirements
  • Prioritize and assign tasks
  • Learn how to approach implementing accessible web components and the challenges you may face
  • Build the components
  • Test the components
  • Manage accessibility systematically

This will be a highly interactive workshop focused on giving you practical experience integrating accessibility into the design and development process and helping you build your accessibility problem solving skills. Each 3 hour session will include a mid-point break and plenty of time for Q&A.

Please Note: This workshop will not be hosted on-demand, only the registrants will receive the recording.
