Tools and teachings for creating a better experience.

This isn't the end, as technology changes so will this guide, but the importance of the design and development practices discussed here will continue to be relevant as we create more inclusive experiences.

We have had an enormous amount of support from our internal departments, outside government agencies, universities, and industry leaders. We continue to learn from each other and hope you will to. That is why we have open sourced this project and ask for your feedback and help in this on-going process to educate ourselves and remove barriers. Thank you!
