"Over the last couple of years, I have been a member of the IAAP community. During this time, I have seen some very insightful and lively discussions on accessibility and the benefits which has expanded and improve my own knowledge. The certification program provides a solid learning platform for those who wish to start to learn about accessibility, already have a good knowledge and wish to close any possible gaps or those who wish to obtain a certification in Accessibility. Thus, I have learn a lot from this educational program. The community is very friendly and helpful. More people who become a member of this organization, stronger the community of accessibility professionals will become."
- Sean Murphy, Sr. Software Engineer, Cisco Systems, Inc.
“IAAP Connections is a great place to post your questions. You will find that you can never be an expert in all aspects of accessibility, so this forum is an invaluable resource. I'm a newcomer myself, and I have found that the accessibility community is passionate about the work we do and eager to help others."
- Abby Kingman, Scrum Master / Web Accessibility Specialist, Last Call Media
