Flash talk

Technical level
Intermediate

Objective

This talk aims at getting you introduced to SnapSvg. The talk would cover the following aspects of Snap:
• Basic shape creation, styling and manipulation.

• Making geometric calculations.

• Transformations and Animation.

• Demos of non-trivial graphics and applications created using Snap

• A comparison with some other SVG frameworks including a detailed comparison with Raphael

• Browser support

Description

SVG has been one of the most underused and underutilized technologies when it comes to web development. SVG provides resolution independent, high resolution dots per inch (HiDPI) graphics on the web, in print, and on mobile devices in a compact format. Snap.svg is a JavaScript library that Web developers can build into their pages to enable these powerful SVG features in their code. Snap provides an intuitive and powerful API to manipulate SVG elements much like jQuery does for the DOM. It is unique in its ability to parse SVG content generated from other tools like Inkscape. It also supports animation, which combined with some clever coding can help fill some of the holes created by Flash.
This session will be a deep dive on Snap. It will compare Snap with some other competent frameworks in this space.

Requirements

An understanding of Svg would help. Basic knowledge of Javascript required.

    Shouldn't your talk title be the name of your talk rather than your own name?

    Can it be converted into Flash Talk?

      I think so. I can condense the content to something like 15 minutes (I am guessing a flash talk is around 15?)
