Our April meetup will be a full of hour of SVG goodness with Tyler Sticka from Cloud Four:

“SVG: So Very Good”

Description

Icon fonts! CSS-only illustrations! High-resolution GIF animations! Today's web designers still regularly and enthusiastically employ these techniques... yet they're all a better fit for SVG, a powerful vector image format that's already old enough to drive a car.

Join Cloud Four's Lead Designer Tyler Sticka for an impassioned introduction to your new favorite image format: What it is, how it works, and why it's so awesome.

Speaker

Tyler Sticka leads the Design Practice at Cloud Four (http://cloudfour.com/), where he helps vanquish complex responsive design challenges for clients like Walmart Labs while blogging about SVG and other web ephemera (http://blog.cloudfour.com/author/tyler/). He's also a fan of side projects, co-founding Backabit (http://backabit.com/) (makers of iOS games like Ramps (http://playramps.com/) and Lotsa Blocks (http://lotsablocks.com/)) and launching Colorpeek (http://colorpeek.com/) (and its accompanying Chrome extension (https://css-tricks.com/colorpeek-part-2-building-first-chrome-extension/)) in his spare time. He complains about mail apps on Twitter as @tylersticka (https://twitter.com/tylersticka).
