Main talk

"Python, Accessibility, and Ensuring the DOM is Accessible (domible)" presented by Joel Dodson

In a tech news cycle dominated by ML and LLMs, are we letting Python get pigeon-holed? Is Python relevant outside the AI and Data Science domains? What should Python developers know about web development? And what is accessibility?

We will open with a very quick run through a very high-level presentation on accessibility, a11y (see Then we'll dig into a Python package, domible, used to render accessible HTML elements on the server.

Domible is a set of Python classes used to render accessible HTML elements directly from your Python program. If you've used jinja (or any other templating library), I'd love to hear your thoughts. The code can be found at
