Design can have a significant impact on delivering accessible experiences to our users. It takes a cultural shift, dedicated experts, and permission to make progress over perfection in order to build momentum.

GitHub recently experienced several availability incidents, both long running and shorter duration. We have since mitigated these incidents and all systems are now operating normally. Read on for more details about what caused these incidents and what we’re doing to mitigate in the future.
