Naomi Kennedy is here to gently guide you down the slippery slopes of the SVG image format as it pertains to ebooks. No prior SVG knowledge is required — Naomi will go over what it is, how and why it's used, and demo tools to create and edit these image files.

[BYOL] Attendees will have the chance to code along with Naomi as she creates an SVG file and places it in an ebook to demonstrate its functionality (or lack thereof). This hands-on workshop will also touch on the differences and similarities between CSS and SVG, accessibility, common problems and their solutions, and supported features.

Competing in So You Think You Can Code? All workshop attendees are eligible! This particular workshop will touch on the following criteria, which will be used to judge your EPUB submissions: fine typography; device agnostic; and ingenuity/creativity of design. One workshop attendee will win a grand prize that includes $2,500 from Rakuten Kobo. Find out more about the competition and how to participate here.
