Basics of Web Technology: HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, Accessibility & WordPress

It’s important to know the basics of how the web works. In one of the introductory lectures at Digital Healthcare, we look at HTML5, CSS, JavaScript & more. Understanding basic web technology is required to ensure that web sites have excellent usability as well as accessibility.

This includes how to make sure navigating the page works with screen readers, as well as that the design works well for people with e.g., (color) vision deficiency. Accessibility is especially important for websites and mobile apps of public sector bodies, based on a new directive of the EU that will come into effect in all member states soon.
