This week we feature a Philadelphia developer, Andrew Larkin, who works at Comcast as an engineer specializing in accessibility for their various web platforms. He is currently working on an open-sourced Javascript component framework, Xooie, which provides drag and drop, tabbing, and other features and features support for add-ons and additional components.

Comcast is actively looking for external developers to contribute to Xooie and other projects. You can find their open source projects on GitHub at github.com/comcast.

Andrew runs the Philly Accessibility Meetup which discusses how to design and develop technology that can be used by everyone. Their August 5th, 2013 meeting will discuss five simple rules for accessibility.
