As front-end developers writing modern web applications, we often forget that a deep knowledge of HTML is a skill to be honed. The result is that the huge majority of digital products have invalid HTML, which results in accessibility issues. In her talk, Marta will show you how to start taking HTML seriously by showcasing how to implement some very common semantic elements along with those less common ones. She will explain why this matters and share strategies on how to keep your skills fresh.
