Testing Tools for Web Services

Quality Assurance (QA) is a conventional method of ensuring that technologies are consistent and meet the specific goals of the project. In order to achieve quality, testing methodologies are put into the life cycle of any development project. But how are Web services tested? This session provides tools, techniques, and helpful tips to ensure that anyone deploying Web services can expertly manage QA concerns. This, in turn, provides stability within the framework as well as securing ROI by saving money and time avoiding problems that slip through without QA testing procedures in place.

Sure, you’ve heard that accessibility is important, especially if you work for government agencies or educational institutions. You also probably know a bit about how to add accessibility features to your markup. But this course delves cares less about teaching you the why of accessibility and more about the how. You’ll delve deep into markup, showing you specifically how to address accessibility issues using special elements and attributes specifically created for accessible documents. Topics covered include: creating accessible tables, creating jump-links in CSS-based layouts, clarifying natural language use, enhancing keyboard and alternative device integration, and providing alternative resources for embedded objects.
Attendees will learn:
?What elements and attributes are available to aid in creating accessible tables ?Best markup practices for assisting those using special devices ?The roles of CSS in accessible site delivery and deployment
