*Topics:Talk #1Introduction to SVGo, Anthony StarksThe talk will start with SVGo examples, explore the API, take time sketching, & finally work through an example connecting SVGo with external APIs.
Its useful for students exploring programming & other subjects to get immediate feedback, & the concept of sketching trying out concepts & tweaking examples is a powerful tool for learning & exploring. This workshop will use a browser-based tool, svgplay to teach graphics & visualization concepts (generative art, color, repetition, shapes, relationships, layout, typography), using short Go programs (25-60 lines of code).
