Scalable Vector Graphics

When:

Location: 
MIT Room 34-101
Lecturer(s): 
Ivan Herman

SVG is one of the 'hot' topics of the day on the Web. After years of development we finally have a tool to produce 2D graphics on the Web using an open, standard format based on XML. However, SVG is not only a translation to XML of well known and traditional graphics tools known in computer graphics for years; it also includes a number of additional possibilities (scripting, SVG fonts, animation, filtering) which makes it a really exciting new technology. This tutorial will give an in-depth introduction into the possibilities of SVG, practical information on how to use SVG, what tools, user agents are available, etc. Finally, it will also give an idea of the future evolution of SVG beyond the current recommendation.
