So, what are the differences between SVG and canvas as an implementer, and for the end user? And what benefits are gained for the user (animations, hover effects, etc)? What gets lost versus server-generated images (save the image or copy it into an email or document)? We will actually look at some clever hacks that try to restore the ability to save rendered charts as an image, all executing client-side in the browser.

Note About Meeting Times
Since many of us get to the meeting early, we will make a half-hour available as a meet-eat-and-greet time prior to any presentations or shop talk. We will continue to start formally at 7:30pm, but the time change is to reflect this chatting time.
Since we all usually chat as people arrive, we will not continue to do a round-robin greeting at 7:30pm. We will instead end the greeting period with announcements, and then give the floor to the presenter or moderator.
Please consider the benefits of moderating, presenting lecture style, or giving a tutorial:
