Audience:

  • Primary: individual developers who are already working in the field (as opposed to new students) (which is why the business case is at the end)

Approach:

  • Briefly introduce key topics and documents, and encourage readers to follow the links to read the docs.
  • Keep it short and simple.
  • Use wording from approved WAI publications where it works, rather than using lots of new wording on this page. (for consistency and to shortcut additional vetting needed)
  • Get this version done asap and make notes for future revisions.
