For most of the history of the web, rich graphics, and in particular vector graphics, have required proprietary plug in technologies like Flash. But those days are ending.
In this presentation, the World Wide Web Consortium’s Doug Schepers will get you up to speed with two standardized graphics technologies, increasingly available in today’s browsers- SVG and the Canvas.
- Demonstrate the capabilities, similarities and differences between these two related technologies
- Demonstrate webapps using each to give a sense of what they can easily help you achieve
- Give an overview of how you author with the technologies
- Give you a sense of where these technologies have come from, and where they might be headed
For anyone involved with the development of rich web sites and applications, this session will be invaluable for helping you understand the state of the art in standards based web graphics
