Montreal 2022 sessions

A web for anyone, anywhere, anytime

English session - Intermediate

The web is designed to be accessible by default, but we developers made a mess of it along the way. We exclude a large group of people while the web is such an intrinsic part of our daily lives.

In this talk, Rowdy will go over common mistakes and show solutions to improve your website for persons with disabilities. He will also show practical examples to make websites more enjoyable and usable for everyone, based on their current situation.

Wrecked Wide Web

English session - Intermediate

The Web has become an intrinsic part of our daily lives nowadays. We shop online, watch videos, listen to music, manage our finances and whatnot.

You'd think we build something magnificent in those three decades. Unfortunately, we often did a lousy job, didn't learn from our mistakes, or even got the basics right.

In this talk, Rowdy will look to the past, present and future of web development and how we can fix what we've wrecked.
