Kelly Shuster: Android is for Everyone

There are currently over 1.4 billion active Android devices worldwide, and as Android expands globally, that number is guaranteed to increase. As developers, we need to start thinking now about how to create applications that serve a diverse range of users. Specifically, we should think about the 1 billion people in the world with disabilities. We’ll talk about who these users are, common challenges they face with existing apps, and what it really means to create an inclusive user experience. Let’s create applications that everyone can use!

  9. The accessibility features I
    speak of would help huge numbers
    of people so why are these things
