Thanks @xvilo for the cordial invitation and here I am! I get another chance at , not sure what else to write, as all I really want to do is reconnect with people and resume the conversations.

February 2020 at Schiphol Airport, I bought this luggage tag before the flight home. Who'd have known that's the last flight I'll take this year 🤷‍♀️

@michel_slm I totally agree, yeah. The fact that software firms don't really take responsibility for data breaches is a good example of how laughably immature our field is. haveibeenpwned.com/ should be seen as an indictment of our whole industry, not a call to arms for users to better protect their passwords.

The A11ycasts series by Rob Dodson was definitely the most helpful starting point for me when learning how to do accessibility correctly. It lays out step-by-step how to actually install and use screen readers like VoiceOver and NVDA.

This is invaluable, because even with all the automated accessibility tooling out there, there's really nothing better than just using the app yourself and seeing if it's possible via sound and touch alone. youtube.com/playlist?list=PLNY
