Update Your JavaScript Libraries

JavaScript libraries are a blessing to those of us that feel overwhelmed by the code. If you’ve used Prototype, Rico, Yahoo’s YUI libraries, or others in the past year, don’t neglect the versioning. These scripts get updated to fix bugs and add features.

I’m working on a project that had some annoying errors that were quickly fixed by simply upgrading to the most recent version of a YUI library object. Set yourself a reminder in Backpack or Thunderbird to check your sites every 4-6 months for updates, it’s an easy way to keep up to date.

Accessibility is more than making sure images have alternate text. I work with engineers, product managers, and designers to understand how accessibility impacts the users, set realistic deadlines, and create the solutions to provide a delightful experience to all users, regardless of their physical, sensory, or cognitive ability.
