The "What's Holding Us Back" slide is perfect 🙌
This single page needs to be sent out to any dev tech that has public docs. It's hard to know how many people who would have used your product/language but couldn't get beyond the docs and moved on to something else.
I get so turned off as an end user if a product says to "just" do a thing that's totally obvious (not...). Even the classic "foobar" examples are a form of injoke that makes it hard to follow if you don't know what foo and bar denote.
Whoops, just got to the part of the talk where you call out foobar and just haha
The light grey text on that slide is a a11y nightmare though. 😬
Oh, thanks for calling that out! I'm not a front-end dev, so I don't tend to think about those aspects of accessibility. It's a good reminder that it matters in presentations, too!
I just checked on the color contrast on this slide, and it's 9.8:1 (#fffcf7, #424242), so definitely a pass from WCAG. I think the apparent lack of contrast is actually a function of font size and reduced screen size or resolution with the format the slides are in here.
A reminder that color contrast is a starting place, not the end-all measure of accessibility, since I agree it is not super readable!
True, though there wouldn't have been enough time to update it after the a11y talk right before it ;) haha
