Moving on from Accessibility

On September 1st, I stepped down from my role on the Visual Studio Accessibility Team. This month marked my 3 year anniversary working on Accessibility. I feel that I have done everything that I could do in this space. And I saw such passion and dedication coming from members of my Accessibility Leadership Team that it just made sense to step-aside and let them take over.

To keep the Accessibility momentum going, we’ve created the Visual Studio Accessibility Blog. You’ll find all the most interesting articles and posts from my Accessibility category over on the VSAccessibility blog in an easy to read format.

I still meet with the leadership team every couple of weeks to help them with any questions, bugs, or issues that arise to ensure a smooth transition.

As for what is next for me, alongside owning the editor, I’m going to investigate white-box testing. Also, I want to be a test lead when I grow up, so I’m looking into taking management courses and assisting in such roles.

    Thanks Will! It’s been great working with you. I hope we’ll have the opportunity in the future to work together again.

    And congrats on the MVP suffix. <grins>
