About the talk -

This will be a revised, slightly more technical version of a talk Sarah gave in this year's Wordcamp London.

Icon fonts are no longer exciting new tools, yet most of us are still relying on them. In this talk, Sarah will discuss the various merits of making the switch to SVG and some neat things you can do with it.
