About this Episode

We've written some about accessibility in terms of building apps and websites — although there's always more to learn and do — but what about accessibility and inclusion in the developer world? How can you best serve your full customer base when your customers are developers? How is designing for inclusion an essential part of the developer experience? These are the questions Pivotal Labs' Senior Designer Raquel Breternitz is trying to answer in this episode of The New Stack Makers.

Why is inclusion so important to Breternitz?

"We don't have to just make sure that someone can get there, and can understand it when they do, but we also have to find the ways in which folks are excluded and break those barriers down as well," she told The New Stack in a follow-up conversation.
