Accessibility blog founder shares his career tips

Raghavendra Peri who is the founder behind the influential Accessibility Blog and non-profit accessibility organisation HelloA11y, joined us for November's IAAP Network and Learn event where he shared his accessiblity career insights.

"One day I woke up and realised I was blind in one eye, it was following this that I did two initiatives, one is digitala11y which is where I started writing about accessibility. One thing I understood is all the accessibility is highly confusing and I wanted to simplify it for myself then I started writing it." Raghavendra discussed how he got started in accessibility.

He then continued about the benefits of IAAP, "I was very closely following the IAAP, I love the community. One thing i've learned is the power of community." The IAAP is a global not for profit membership based organisation for individuals and organisations that are focused on accessibility. Benefits of being a member of the IAAP includes: a supportive community of accessibility experts, an opportunity to learn and develop your skills through certification, and more.
