Show Notes

Welcome to The Modern .NET Show! Formerly known as The .NET Core Podcast, we are the go-to podcast for all .NET developers worldwide and I am your host Jamie "GaProgMan" Taylor.

In this episode, I spoke with Dennie Declercq about accessibility, it's importance in modern application development, and how it's not just a case of adding ARIA tags to HTML elements. Developing your web applications with accessibility and all users in mind should be the default mode for all user interface developers; and that change needs to come from us:

"And I don't have good eyes, so I have bad eyes. I'm not blind, b ut my eyes can be way better by example. That's the reason I don't drive a car.

So thinking about this, "is a website for people at autism. it shouldn't be accessible on the other ways." It's just telling fairy tales to yourself. In fact, those fairy tales are not there because a lot of people on the spectrum have one or multiple additional, let's say, diagnosis. So really important to push back and say no. We need to make accessible websites for everybody. Also, for whatever case it is. I love all the things that you're saying in the last part, so I hope I checked them all" — Dennie Declercq

In fact, in the time between recording this episode and it going live, version 2.2 of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines where published. At the time of recording this into (Oct 18th, 2023), version 2.1 is still the required standard for UK web applications, but it will be superseded by 2.2 by the time you hear this episode.

So let's sit back, open up a terminal, type in dotnet new podcast and we'll dive into the core of Modern .NET.
