Talk #2
Introduction to SVGo, Anthony Starks
The talk will start with SVGo examples, explore the API, take time sketching, and finally work through an example connecting SVGo with external APIs.

It’s useful for students exploring programming and other subjects to get immediate feedback, and the concept of “sketching” – trying out concepts and tweaking examples is a powerful tool for learning and exploring. This workshop will use a browser-based tool, svgplay to teach graphics and visualization concepts (generative art, color, repetition, shapes, relationships, layout, typography), using short Go programs (25-60 lines of code).

Bio:
I’m the author of SVGo, with a keen interest in design and its relationship to programming. I love to turn data into pictures I’ve discussed these topics at meetups (NYC), and other venues dotGo 2015 See also https://speakerdeck.com/ajstarks/the-other-side-of-go-programming-pictures
