In an effort to ensure I can find things later, I’ve decided to begin compiling a weekly roundup of WordPress, web accessibility and web development posts. So, welcome to the first edition. For now these are in no particular order.
Tony Gines on designing user interfaces for my mother.
As designers and developers, it’s our responsibility to make our websites not only useable, but enjoyable enough to come back to again and again.
Patrick Roland on how to be a better human, as a wrap-up of this year’s WordCamp U.S.
Karl Groves on chasing the accessibility business case, which is the conclusion of a series of posts on the topic which is worth the read and is something I always come back to for review. The main takeaway from the post is that the best argument in favor of accessibility that any business can use comes down to one word: quality.
Yoav Weiss on contributing to Chromium and the web platform itself.
Sixty Minutes takes some of the worst examples of disability rights lawyers and sets them up as the only examples, shutting down any meaningful meaningful community-specific discussion about what is and what is not ADA trolling in the process.
Adrian Roselli on how we reward the wrong things when judging the quality of websites
Faith Macanas provides some greate starting advice for WordPress site owners by laying out some questions you should ask before adding an eCommerce plugin to your site.
Nick Hams on the true cost of bargain basement WordPress themes. I couldn’t agree more.
There’s a lot to read for this edition, so I’ll end it here for now. Enjoy, happy reading, and come back next week for the best finds from the WordPress, web accessibility and web development worlds.
