Inkscape is a cross platform, GPL, graphics editor. Its native file format, Scalable Vector Graphic (SVG) is a W3C open standard.
This tutorial guides participants through a series of tasks designed to introduce Inkscape’s interface and tools, and build foundation skills for creating and modifying vector graphics.
Assumed knowledge: Free & Open Source Software licensing. Difference between raster and vector graphics.
New knowledge goals: Inkscape interface, creating shapes & lines, working with colour. Inkscape techniques, path operations, object manipulations. How to edit existing SVGs from wikimedia commons or openclipart.org
You don’t need to be a designer, artistic or know how to draw. Just install Inkscape on your laptop, bring a mouse, come along and learn how to get the best out of this brilliant tool.
As a speaker at OSCON I believe we should all strive to create a fun, educational, enjoyable and harassment-free conference experience for everyone.
I’m pleased to say Tim O’Reilly thinks so too!
If you are being harassed, or witness harassment please report it to venue security, the police, the conference organisers or a trusted friend. You do not have to put up with it.
For more detail on what a code of conduct which includes an anti-harassment policy should contain, please review the geekfeminism wiki conference anti-harassment policy template
