This was a two-hour back-to-back series covering an introduction to RaphaëlJS and advanced integration with Drupal.

Outside the Garden description: RaphaëlJS is a cross-browser JavaScript library for drawing and animating with SVG and VML. If you've ever wanted to include simple animations or image effects on the web without Flash, you should learn about Raphaël!

In this session, we'll cover the basics of Raphaël -- understanding the "paper," how to draw and position shape primatives, working with text and custom fonts, manipulating objects with rotation, scaling and translation and adding interactivity.

The Drop and the Painter description: RaphaëlJS is a JavaScript library for drawing and animating with SVG and VML. It can provide vector drawing and interactivity with a simple cross-browser API. Using just JavaScript (no plug-ins required), one can create very compelling interactive media that can even work on the iPad. Combining it with Drupal opens up the possibility to make interesting interactive infographics with your site content and engage your users.

In this session, we'll journey through the process of making awesome interactions with Drupal and Raphaël: touching on some advanced JavaScript techniques, extending Raphaël with custom functionality, and integrating with Drupal through AJAX and Drupal.behaviors.
