Accessibility should be a priority in the design and development process, not merely an afterthought. So, in this session I'll demonstrate best practices and key ways to improve the accessibility of your React applications including how some of the popular React-based frameworks and libraries like React Native and Gatsby have made improvements to provide accessibility out of the box. Lastly, I will go over a few things to keep in mind when you are seeking to create your own accessible component library (which is a great, practical way to solidify your understanding of everything you'll learn in this session).
