Code Audit

I make sure your code is accessible, scalable and performs well.

Code Auditing is the process of auditing software code for accessibility, scalability and performance. My expertise includes assisting in developing best practices for secure coding, finding bugs and defects in a system, recommending best practices for scalability and performance.

Nobody likes software projects to fail. But there are some common mistakes that developers make, that can cause software projects to underperform or even crash. And these issues aren't always the fault of a developer, but sometimes the code itself is just bad or outdated. I've been auditing the code of projects for compliance and performance for years and enjoy working with companies of all sizes to help them scale.

Accessibility Audit

I audit existing websites and apps for accessibility, which helps determine how they can be improved to meet WCAG best practices. My auditing process includes a detailed methodology and reporting. An accessibility audit is recommended before launching new products or major updates to existing websites and apps.

As an accessibility auditor, I audit existing websites and apps for accessibility. I shed light on why things are inaccessible, and help change that. What you'll gain is a better understanding of how users with disabilities interact with your product, what traits make for effective interfaces for people with disabilities and insight in how to design these interfaces going forward.
