Interview with Vasil Atanasov, vSphere UI
We meet with Vasil Atanasov, part of the vSphere UI team of VMware, to learn why he and his colleagues were motivated to organize an event on Accessibility in enterprise-grade applications.
Vasil, why should developers pay close attention to accessibility?
In your opinion, which are some of the overlooked benefits of accessibility?
Why did you decide to host an event on this particular topic?
On top of that, we believe the project itself was very intricate and are genuinely excited about the results achieved. We are eager to share the details on how we managed to tackle the challenge of implementing accessibility in the vSphere HTML5 client, which is the UI for VMware’s main product vCenter. This is one of, if not the largest web clients on the market and contains loads of complicated use cases most of which go beyond the standard scenarios.
We believe that our experience can help developers and guide them as they embark on their own journey of integrating accessibility into their enterprise-grade products and services.
