Welcome to the axe Hackathon!axe logo

Contribute to making the web accessible to people with disabilities at the 4th Annual axe-Hackathon on March 16th, 2019. The Hackathon will be led by Wilco Fiers and other members of the axe team. We will be…

  • Testing open source component libraries and logging accessibility issues
  • Building new axe integrations
  • Sharing knowledge and solutions with our fellow accessibility devotees
  • Working on personal accessibility projects
  • Hanging out with awesome people and making the web a better place

Projects to Target

  • Open source component libraries
  • Websites and applications w/ feedback channels
  • axe-core: WCAG 2.1 or other rules
  • Personal accessibility projects

This year some members of the Facebook team will also be joining the Hackathon to work on improving static analysis for accessibility support in JSX via linting and rules. They will hack on the eslint-plugin-jsx-a11y ESLint plugin and explore options to integrate axe into it. We welcome everyone to participate – coders, testers, evaluators and semantic HTML enthusiasts alike – and the issues we have gathered will appeal to all levels of skill.
