Just finished my talk about server-side SVG generation. This concludes the "work part" on this conference for us (apart from chairing two talks tomorrow), so we can fully focus on the other interesting sessions. Right before the talk, we attended The SVG Wow! Session by Dean Jackson and Vincent Hardy, which showed some quite nice effects (however I still like Dean's Zurich version of the talk - "17.5 things you may not want to know about SVG" - better).

A sidenote: At the beginning of the cruise, Andreas Neumann said that the buffet will be hard to beat for next year's conference. I already have an idea how it would be possible: Enough food (I started with a salad and when I returned for "the real deal", nothing was left) ...
