Traveling to Rise NYC for the Superheroes vs. Master Hackers Hackaton. As an IBM Accessibility Superhero will mentor coders on adding support for all abilities to their solutions.
I created Hackability Cheat Sheets to help assist the coders to quickly add support for all abilities during their 36 hours challenge sponsored by Barclay’s Bank and angelhack.com
For 16+ years, Moe has defended the rights of all abilities to access Information and Communication Technology (ICT). Specializing in Accessibility (#a11y), Moe fights for hyper-personalization of software and web applications including support for the blind, low vision users, deaf, mobility challenged, the aging population, foreign language speakers and those who learn differently. Basically Moe has disciplined herself to create apps for everyone.
She is an active member of the W3C WCAG Working Group and the Boston a11y group. She received a B.S. in Computer and Information Science from University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA and has been a software engineer at IBM and Lotus Development for 26 years.
