Big Win for Web Accessibility in Domino’s Pizza Case
I didn’t expect I would ever include an article from a law office, but here we are. Apparently, a case has been making its way through the California courts pertaining to Domino’s website and mobile apps and a lack of accessibility for individuals who are blind. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that the Americans with Disabilities Act does apply to Dominos’ website and apps because Dominos is a place of public accommodation.

What does this mean? It means that if you are a “place of public accommodation”, or your website or app can be considered one, you need to comply with the ADA. If you need a good starting point on website accessibility you can take a look at the WCAG 2.0 specification. You’ll probably want to move along to additional sources pretty quickly.

The key differences in DevOps for small vs. large organizations
DevOps, regardless of how you feel about it, is here to stay. I’ve played a DevOps role in both midsized and large organizations and each was a very unique experience full of different challenges. While the end goal may be the same the methods, resources, and what can feasibly be done are wildly different.
