Target Audience: Developers. This session requires experience with HTML and CSS and at least basic understanding of and experience with JavaScript.

Overview: Web components are a new technology that offer a new way to encapsulate new functionality into webpages directly, allowing for custom elements with their full presentation logic and business logic to be built in as though they were native. This exciting technology also allows for new customized versions of existing native functionality and, in fact, improvements to the native functionality without needing to require that functionality to be built from scratch. This offers new opportunities and challenges for accessibility, which will be discussed in this session.
