Show and inspire the audience with the existing and coming web graphical features with an interactive presentation.

Speaker bio




  • Kiran Jonnalagadda (@jace) Crew 7 years ago

    Vincent, I notice there’s already a video of this talk from Create the Web:

    Will the Meta Refresh version of the talk have any new material?

  • Vincent Hardy (@vhardy) Proposer 7 years ago

    I was thinking of giving mostly the same presentation with updates where appropriate (e.g., there are some new developments on Canvas 2D, Filter Effects or Blend modes).
