April 16, 2019 — Nella scelta del tema migliore per un progetto digitale basato su WordPress, molti webmaster sono spesso guidati da fattori estetici, limiti di spesa o funzionalità native del tema .

April 3, 2019 — Your content is clear, your images are responsive, your code is clean, and your layout flows beautifully on all the most popular devices. You think you’re ready to launch, but you might have overlooked a crucial aspect of your website’s development. If it’s not easy for a person to access your content regardless of the way in which they use the internet, there’s still work to be done. Developing for accessibility should be part of the standard workflow, but it’s often given very little attention. This session will cover some of the low-hanging fruit that you can start picking today and take a deep dive into a few tools to help you build accessibility into your projects from the beginning.
April 1, 2019 — When a website is inaccessible, it is not just an issue of compliance, it is just bad practice on display. People with disabilities ranging from blindness, deafness, dyslexia and others may navigate and consume content in different ways with assistive technology (like screen readers, captioning or joy sticks).

In this presentation I will outline a few key points to keep in mind when you are designing your next beautiful website or theme. I will illustrate the points with some good (and bad) examples.
Good design and web accessibility can go hand in hand – come and find out how.

December 13, 2018 — Imagine having a child with special needs being prevented from attending class each day, or your elderly parents being forced to constantly climb flights of stairs to eat meals?
