SVGOpen 2005


I had the great opportunity to go to the annual SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) conference [http://www.svgopen.org/ SVGOpen], this year held in Enschede, Netherlands.
This is my second time presenting at the SVGOpen. I gave a course on building WebApplications and presented a couple papers on networking interfaces in SVG and a "HTML-Forms" implementation in SVG + sXBL.

Besides giving and attending presentations the conference truly is about meeting people and having a good time. And we surely did have a good time during the 4 days in Enschede. So much that, when I came home on friday, I went to bed at 1:00pm and only woke up the next morning at 10:00am and pretty much just resting for the rest of the weekend.
I guess thats what happens if one parties till 5:00 in the morning and gets up at 10:00 to give a presentation. But hey, we don't live twice!


All togehter I meet a lot of interesting people, had a great time and am looking forward to the next SVGOpen.
