Like many developers, Tasveer initially dismissed SVG as simply a transport of vector image data. Just to be used for things like images that scale fluidly to different sizes.

He was wrong! And he has since pushed SVG into areas that he did not previously know were even possible on the Web.

Tasveer will be talking about his journey, from the basics of SVG into using it to achieve much more advanced effects. He will be sharing tricks and hacks that he has gained from first-hand experience working with SVG, as well as touching on what’s possible.
