Google to gather SVG boosters

Topics include design workflows, mobile SVG, Web application development, and geolocation-based services

Emphasizing its support of SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) and the so-called Open Web, Google will help host the SVG Open 2009 conference in October, pitching it as the "premier forum" for SVG designers, developers, and implementers.

Planned for Oct. 2-5, 2009, at company facilities in Mountain View, Calif., the event will cover topics such as design workflows, mobile SVG, Web application development and geolocation-based services.

World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) members will participate including Google, IBM, Mozilla, Opera, and Oracle.

"At Google we're excited about Scalable Vector Graphics," said Brad Neuberg, of the Google Developer Team, in a blog entry on Monday.

Neuberg wrote, "SVG is an open, browser-based standard that makes it easy to create interactive Web graphics with new HTML-like tags such as the Circle tag. We like it because it's part of the HTML 5 family of technologies while being search engine-friendly; easy for JavaScript and HTML developers to adopt; exportable from your favorite drawing tools like Adobe Illustrator and straightforward to emit from server-side systems like PHP and Google App Engine. It's also available in all modern browsers."

The theme of the event is "SVG Coming of Age." Some of the talks include:

  • Beyond HTML
  • AJAX Toolkits supporting SVG graphics: Raphael, dojo, Ample SDK, SVG Web Project, JSXGraph
  • SVG in Internet Explorer at Google
  • SVG for Mobile Applications

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
