GIF: The Image Format That Keeps Giving

A session at Joy of Coding 2016

Friday 17th June, 2016

3:50pm to 4:20pm (AMT)

Cats. On the internet. They may move you to tears of joy, but we want them to move. Luckily there is a technology for that. The Graphics Interchange Format that brought us the cutest moving cats on the internet almost 30 years ago, before the web even existed, will require closer examination.

Compression! Patents! Legal battles! Companies buying other companies! Boycots and antique browsers! Colour palettes and binary numbers! These are the wonderful things that will explore in this amazing talk! I will talk at you! And you will listen, or not, it's up to you.
