About this event

Did you know that 1 in 4 people are affected by a disability of some kind? That represents billions in disposable income and sales that you could be losing if your website — or, more specifically, your online store — accessibility is not taken into consideration! That fact aside, there are many other reasons that accessibility should be at the forefront of your web development process and not left for the end. (Not the least of which is avoiding a lawsuit!)

In this edition of the Makers of the Web meetup, Bet Hannon, CEO of AccessiCart, joins Marcus Burnette to discuss what eCommerce accessibility is, why it's important, and how you can avoid the pitfalls of making accessibility an afterthought! We'll talk about eCommerce platforms in general, as well as diving into a couple of popular commerce website solutions like WooCommerce and Shopify.

If you're joining us live, you'll also have an opportunity to ask questions throughout, so register to attend!
