Demystifying accessibility in React apps

Web Accessibility is nuanced and can be a tough topic to navigate and get right. In this talk, I aim to provide a practical guide to web accessibility in React apps, completed with many interactive examples.\n\nWe’ll start with brief introduction to web accessibility as a whole, we will explore the way assistive technology interacts with web pages, how accessibility tree is constructed and used to navigate web content. Then, we’ll go over a few common patterns in React apps and how to implement without compromising accessibility. This is going to be fun!
