As a blind web developer, I really enjoyed this article. I would like to see more on the web about accessibly doing form validation. Perhaps I will write something myself once I play around more, I am fairly new to front end development. I know this is not necessarily accessibility related, but I would also be curious if you or anyone else could write something on best practices for design. What I mean is, I know with me not being able to see, my design will probably never be perfect, but I am wondering if there are certain frameworks/best practices that would at least point me in the right direction and allow me to produce something that looks at least OK visually and allow someone else to polish up later. I've looked at material ui, and the controls seem nice but still am confused on how they should be laid out. Also if anyone wants to create an accessible datepicker that would be neat, seems like datepickers are hard to make accessible. Great work.

I would love to talk with you more about this subject. I'll currently I'm on vacation but I think we could help each other out. Let's get together next week and I have some ideas about the date picker.

I would love that. I could use all the help I can get. :) I always appreciate a good networking opportunity. I see you are out west, I work until 5 eastern time so maybe sometime after that. I am available most evenings except Wednesdays and Fridays. Perhaps we can use skype or google hangout or calling whatever works best for you. I look forward to chatting even if we don't solve all the world's problems. :)
