Shout out to the Stanford Online Accessibility Program website. It's the most coherent resource I've found that really explains all sorts of context around accessible websites.

I’m a generalist with 15 years professional experience and engineering/computer science degrees. Full-stack Ruby, ReasonML most recently with a fair bit of Rust on the side.

Pls boost for reach 🙏
