I am a newbie, just started with HTML and I want to become a web developer Now this is my first question. I created a radio-button in my text editor (Brackets by the way), like I learned it: create a form, nest a label-tag inside, nest a input-tag inside, give the input an attribute of name, id, ect.
Nahh, it doesn´t work… Ohhh… I see… I got the same ID twice and now it works on the other form with the same ID instead… interesting… now I also realized, why one shouldn´t use the same ID twice… thanks a lot!
Not sure yet what accessibility means - accessible to other programmers, to users, both…? Anyway, this term seems to be important and I will find out more! Also the article and the magazine is interesting! Oh man, there is so much, I need to learn… seems I reached the shore of the infinite ocean of coding knowledge… a bit intimidating…
Accessibility is about being accessible to all users, including the ones with temporary or permanent disabilities. Like blind users, or users that use only one button, or the elderly users, or the users with rsi, a broken wrist, a sore eye or whatever.
Make sure you’ll be good at that! One day an employer might choose you because of that knowledge.
And yes, it’s a bit intimidating, or maybe not just a bit. I know the feeling.
But I really like the fact that there is so much to learn. Never a dull moment with code!
Thanks, Joke, that is useful knowledge indeed! I will keep that in mind… I will do my best to become a great developer. It´s a nice ethics also, not to discriminate anybody, free access to the web for everbody, I like it a lot.
