Creating the Touchless Experience For the Accessible World

As organizations grow and scale, they have to deal with changing data models, causing strain in their ability to scale and develop. As a result, customers miss out on a great brand experience and those with disabilities are excluded from participating.


In this presentation, Kevin will share how creating a Gatsby-based theme using innovative middleware can help all businesses to create a more frictionless experience. The open-source Touchless EXO theme syncs data automatically from various sources, cleans data as it is entered, and more importantly enables every business to adhere to core vitals, accessibility and compliance standards so Gatsby applications can scale and cater to everyone without redoing code.



After attending this talk, you’ll be able to download the Gatsby EXO theme, use it’s free APIs and start building scalable and flexible Gatsby applications immediately.
