We've had 3 community spotlights:
- Melanie Sumner told us about her journey into engineering, accessible design, Ember.js, and the importance of funding these efforts.
- Olutimilehin Olushuyi told us about his move from the law to web development, building accessible community, and creating accessible layouts.
- Albert Kim told us about mental health awareness, building for invisible disabilities, the COGA Accessibility Community Group, and more practical wisdom.
