58: Scalable Vector Graphics



Sara Soueidan (@SaraSoueidan) has been traveling the world talking about SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) over the past year. Since then, we’ve learned a lot more about the power of this declarative graphical language. Now that many projects have dropped support for Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) and older mobile browsers, SVG has become a staple for non-bitmap art, visualization, and other graphical web development. Sara has recently shared many of the ‘gotchas’ and best practices in talks at Beyond Tellerand in Düsseldorf & Microsoft Edge Web Summit. Together, we take a closer look at how developers can leverage her advice in our web projects today.
