NDC returned to Sydney this year and SSW TV was there to catch all the action with our Ask Me Anything! sessions.

As usual there were a host of top industry pros talking about various subjects related to software development. SSW TV was there to run the ‘Ask Me Anything’ booth, where we grabbed some of those speakers after their sessions and talked about a number of topics.

In this AMA, SSW’s Adam Cogan interviewed Jennifer Wong and Elle Waters about accessibility.

Evangelizing the growth of Universal Design and lean accessibility as best practices within large organizations, Elle works on behalf of Simply Accessible with startups and enterprise level clients to build the foundation needed to integrate accessibility into every facet of corporate culture. She's worked first hand with design, content, development, and testing teams to create agile, scalable methods to ensure more inclusive user experiences. She's seen amazing things happen, where the user's needs are the primary driver for change and innovation in large scale digital projects, where teams meet and even exceed their specific product goals, and where companies leap ahead of their competition, all by putting accessibility first. Elle has a passion for all things agile, a fascination with emerging technology, and a healthy fear of zombies.
