I’m just back from CSS Dev Conf (Dave and I wrapped it up over on ShopTalk) and it was a pleasant surprise for me to have seen four (!) SVG talks back-to-back on the first day. Just a little confirmation SVG is a hot topic these days. Anytime anyone asked the room who was using SVG, nearly every hand in the room went up. Here’s the presentations:
- Sara Soueidan (@SaraSoueidan): SVG For Web Designers (and Developers)
- Brenda Storer (@brendamarienyc): Cracking the SVG Code
- Brenna O’Brien (@brnnbrn): Creative Typography with SVG & Collection
- Sarah Drasner (@sarah_edo): Designing Complex Animations
Lots of SVG content around here as well, including my own recent talk, exploring the “SVG” tag, and the comprehensive course on The Lodge “Everything You Need To Know About SVG”.
It’s awesome to see SVG getting this much attention (and this is a great set of talks). A lot of companies I work with are trying to drop IE8 support, given a bit of time there won’t be any good reason not to use SVG.
I am curious to see what happens when HTTP/2 finally comes around and if it actually does bring about the end of icon sprites.
