These Inclusive Design Principles are about putting people first. It's about designing for the needs of people with permanent, temporary, situational, or changing disabilities — all of us really.

# Coding on Copilot (pdf)

A paper analysing the impact of GitHub Copilot on code quality and maintenance difficulty.

# Invisible XML

A language for describing the implicit structure of data, and a set of technologies for making that structure explicit as XML markup.
