Test Driven Accessibility
Test driven development is a technique in which software engineers write failing tests first, and then write the code to make the tests pass. This ensure you do not over-engineer the solution and have great test coverage of your business logic. Larene will demo some of the latest tools and techniques for building accessibility in from the start.
