Target audience/ technical pre-requisites

Hands-On Session: Realize your own tests with a webextension (accessibility and more).

Schedule: Thursday June 7 from 01:30 to 03:30pm, room TBC
Speakers: Romain Gervois, Molika Thai, OCEANE Consulting.
Abstract: To develop a quality web project, the developer must implement more and more rules. From accessibility to SEO through eco-design, you have to equip yourself to test what you produce.
There are a lot of existing tools (bookmarklets, online tools, Web Extensions ...); but what visibility is there on what is really tested and especially how are these tests performed?
We propose you to quickly and easily create your own test games with Open Source Web Extensions for Firefox. It is based only on web technologies (HTML, CSS, JavaScript) without any additional technical requirements (no preprocessor, taskrunner and no command line).
Target audience/ technical pre-requisites: Accessibility, quality, performance analysis. Participants will ideally have a good knowledge of HTML and JavaScript. Participants will have to come with their own PC.
