React is a great way to create and share reusable, modular components among projects. But how do you ensure your React apps are usable by all?

Scott Vinkle will share tips on how to create React apps with accessibility best practices and techniques baked-in from the start!

In this talk you’ll learn why these techniques are important and how to:

• Set the page title
• Create a live announcement component
• Manage keyboard focus
• Use React’s accessibility linter
• Ensure valid HTML in components
• And more!

Let’s not view making apps usable for people with disabilities as a chore but a coding challenge. In the end, when an app is accessible everyone benefits (including future you!)
