For this EDTECH502 assignment, we were tasked with researching and creating a web page about web accessibility. This is an area of web development that I am passionate about. While I have compassion and understanding for those with disabilities, my passion is more on the development side. Having worked for years with some of the top web developers in the area, I was frequently surprised at how NON-compliant the code would be. It is often easier and quicker to cut corners and skip accessibility guidelines but in my opinion, that just makes your code sloppy and unprofessional.
The assignment was pretty straightforward. For the HTML portion of the lesson, we worked on links, both external and internal as well as the CSS styling of links. Of course I put just a smidgin extra in and built a CSS nav.. but it was truly just a smidgin.
