SVG Today and Tomorrow

A session at @media 2010

Thursday 10th June, 2010

10:45am to 11:40am (GMT)

Thought SVG was dead? Think again. Once relegated to plug-​​in status, Scalable Vector Graphics is now spreading rapidly, in browsers, mobiles, and even televisions, with broad native support and graphical script libraries. It’s used on major websites like Wikipedia, Google Docs, and the Washington Post. Whether images or apps, standalone or integrated into HTML, CSS, or Canvas, SVG is a powerful tool in a developer or designer toolkit. With full scripting support, animations, and advanced visual effects, SVG lets you reuse skills you already have. Learn how to use SVG to best effect to add standards-​​based bling to your webapp or site, see what works and what to avoid, and glimpse where the future lies.
