"Because C’s abstract machine is so thin, these kinds of details can [really] matter [...]. And this is where the good part of the “C teaches you how the computer works” meme comes in. Because the machine is thinner, you can learn more about the details. words.steveklabnik.com/c-is-no

Dear fellow devs:

A11y issues are not feature requests.

If something didn’t work in a certain version of a certain browser, it’s a bug.

Why is something that doesn’t work for assistive technologies and/or the people who use them any different?
