Web Directions South 2010, Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre, October 15 2.40pm.

Presentation slides

Coming soon.

Session description

As SVG and Canvas come of age, every developer who loves standards is wanting to use them in production to make eye-popping effects. But then they come up against the inevitable lack of support in IE6 to 8, and promptly give up the ghost.

Fear not! Raphaël provides a developer friendly API to create graphics that work in Firefox 3.0+, Safari 3.0+, Opera 9.5+ and Internet Explorer 6.0+. Yes, you read that correctly, IE6.

In this session Dmitry Baranovskiy, Raphaël’s creator will walk you through its possibilities and will open up new horizons for web graphics that will work in all almost every browser.
