An astonishing 96.3% of websites have accessibility issues. As a Python developer, you can be a part of the effort to turn that number around.

In this workshop, we’ll introduce you to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) and show you practical ways to incorporate accessibility into your web development. We’ll build a blog website using a Python-powered content management system called Wagtail and demonstrate how you can make your project more accessible as you go. We’ll show you how to customize Wagtail’s accessibility tools to continuously test and improve your website accessibility over time.

To benefit the most from this tutorial, students should have at least some basic knowledge of Python and Django. A laptop with Python 3.8 or above installed on it is required to participate in the hands-on exercises.
