Digitisation means not only digitally reproducing analogue processes, but also improving the process itself and working out advantages in the "new" medium. The General Students' Committee (AStA) of Westfälische Hochschule university has tackled exactly this.
In spring 2020, I was able to support a small team around Sarah Märdian in converting the script order of the AStA's own shop into a web application. The script ordering and management portal was implemented with Laravel in the backend and of course semantic HTML in the frontend. It was important to us that the user interface is high-performance, robust in terms of progressive enhancement and, last but not least, accessible.
European public sector bodies such as universities have to comply with legal regulations regarding web accessibility (NRWBITV as implementation of the EU 2016/2102 directive). Here I was able to support by the means of both consulting and implmentation of WCAG 2.1 Level AA compliance.
