  • Sally Thoun: A Rookie’s Reflection – My First-Year Journey with WordPress and Accessibility

    WordCamp Santa Clarita 2021Speaker: Sally Thoun

    October 11, 2021 — This talk shares resources to help start your Accessibility journey and offers encouragement for taking your first steps.

    In 2019, Sally Thoun had never heard of a WordCamp, MeetUp, Wapuu, or GitHub. She had heard about Accessibility but wasn’t sure exactly what it was all about. She was intimidated to even touch or edit a website and left that to her agency developers.

    But what a difference a year makes! Last summer, she dove headfirst into Accessibility and WordPress. This new direction became a rewarding and fulfilling journey. In this talk, Sally shares her experiences to inspire the same purpose and passion that the selfless WordPress and Accessibility community has inspired in her.
