The whats and whys of WCAG 2.1

Within the release of 2.1, several new guidelines have been added for developers to follow when making sure their website is as accessible as possible. Nathan gives a brief overview for each recommendation and why we should care about it.

The same DOM API and frameworks you know, but in a Web Worker
