About this Event

SVGs beyond mere shapes

In data visualization for the web, SVG is mostly used to create shapes; circles, rectangles, lines. But SVG can do much more than "just" be a shape. In this masterclass, Nadieh Bremer will show you how to experiment with SVG gradients and filters to make data visualizations even more fun and engaging. She'll demonstrate how to implement the techniques using JS, CSS, and the de-facto data visualization library d3.js. From rainbow, moving and dynamic SVG gradients based on data, to SVG filters with which to create glow, gooey, and fuzzy effects that brighten up any visual.
