Building More Accessible Web Applications with Cloudscape

Date & Time

Platinum 4 (AMAZON)  
This session will dive into the accessibility journey of the Cloudscape Design System created by Amazon Web Services (AWS), an open-source solution for building engaging and inclusive user experiences at scale. We will begin the presentation by discussing the background of the design system, focusing on how the system was built with accessibility in mind. The second half of the presentation will dive deeper into the guidelines and tools available using Cloudscape to help build accessible web interfaces. Cloudscape is an open-source design system allowing anyone building cloud products to benefit from the design system, and join a community of designers and developers continually improving it. Cloudscape was built for and is used by Amazon Web Services (AWS) products and services. We created it in 2016 to improve the user experience across web applications owned by AWS services, and also to help teams implement those applications faster. Since then, we have continued enhancing the system based on customer feedback and research. Cloudscape provides guidelines to create web applications, along with design resources and front-end components to streamline building products for customers. Whether you are building a product, designing a user interface for a hybrid cloud management system, or thinking of setting up an on-premises solution, Cloudscape offers a base of 60+ components, 30+ pattern guidelines, and 20+ demos to make your work easier and accessible.
