AjaxWorld and SXSW talks on dojo.gfx

By on March 27, 2007 4:23 pm

At SXSW and AjaxWorld, I had the opportunity to talk about dojo.gfx and native web vector graphics in general. The amazing thing about these talks was the large number of attendees familiar with and interested in SVG, Canvas, and other native vector graphics formats.

Draw This!

It’s still very early, but the interest in collaborative web applications that involve richer, interactive drawing capabilities is growing rapidly. I’m pleased to announce that I am making my slides available online for both of these talks. What is interesting about these slides, even more than the content within them, is that both were created using dojo.gfx. They are great examples of mixing HTML and SVG/VML techniques to create a nice user interface. While there is nothing explicitly preventing them from working cross-browser, I have only tested them on Firefox 2 given time constraints.
