Spend a Full Day Immersed With a Leading SVG Master
SVG is now supported on every modern browser and mobile device, and usage is on the upswing, but most people only use it for icons or data visualizations. Most developers and designers don't realize how much more powerful and useful SVG is. From scalable images to full-bore web applications, SVG fits many needs. Come join Doug Schepers to learn SVG in-depth, and add a valuable tool to your web toolkit.

Is This Workshop for Me?
This workshop is for you if you've never used SVG before, only used SVG in simple cases or through script libraries, or if you started learning it but want to avoid the pitfalls in taking your knowledge to the next level. Web developers and code-savvy designers will take away valuable, pragmatic skills in working with SVG. You'll get the most out of it if you know how to do simple scripting.
