About the Author

David Dailey was born and raised in Albuquerque, NM, receiving his bachelor's degree from the University of New Mexico and his doctorate from the University of Colorado. Having taught mathematics, psychology and computer science at the Universities of Wyoming, Tulsa, and Alaska, he later moved east with appointments at Vassar, Williams, and Bay Path College, before settling in at Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania where he is Professor of Computer Science teaching mainly in areas of web programming. He is married, has four children and enjoys creating art, food, music and games.

Jon Frost is a senior .NET developer who has worked with SVG for more than a decade. The SVG applications he has developed include dynamic and interactive reporting/charting applications. He initiated and collaborated on the book “Learn SVG: The Web Graphics Standard” in 2002. For the last year he has been developing web applications to Azure.

Domenico Strazzullo has been involved in SVG since 2000. His work on the web has often been cited as some of the most elegant, well-crafted and useful. His company Dotuscomus has been doing SVG-related consulting for almost a decade. He is the author of Pergola, a JavaScript library for SVG, and of the open-source project GEMï, a web operating system. Founder and editor in chief of “SVG magazine”, he was also co-founder and managing editor of “Tabula Rasa” in 2004.

Suitable for all html Geeks, who want something different. Good for small animations. Like a posh or business type website.

Great Intro and Reference for SVG 1.1 15 July 2013
By Financial Reader - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a great book covering the latest version of SVG. SVG is one of those technologies that was developed a long time ago and has only recently become supported by all the major web browsers. As usual, Micro$oft waited forever to get SVG support into IE and so the whole world had to suffer. Now that SVG support has reached all the mainstream browsers (yes even IE believe it or not), the true power demonstrated in this book can finally be unlocked.

Despite the "Microsoft" branding on the cover, this book does not take any position on development environment or specific tools -- which is great. Don't worry, there is no Visual$tudio evangelization and no trying to get me to write some s*** Micro$oft abstraction code that will generate garbage SVG. This book really is about pure, standards-based SVG. It's almost ironic that Microsoft's logo is on the cover since they spent nearly a decade ignoring SVG and effectively trying to kill it. I took a pair of scissors and cut out the logo and now I can read this book peacefully.

Finally, this book is a great teaching resource and also a great reference. The topics are logically organized like a desk reference should be. The first chapter does the typical whirl-wind tour many instruction books use throughout and then teach various aspects of SVG in an orderly and complete way.

Chock full of examples, easy to read with lots of leads to other resources 22 Aug. 2012
By William Frost - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was impressed with:
First, the easy reading from chapter to chapter. It wasn't choppy and disjointed like most educational books and this allows one to take in so much more information because the mind is more relaxed.
Second, the book is full of examples with code samplings and simple steps to complete a wide range of applications. I love examples and seeing how others write when coding.
Third, the book frequently refers to resources and sites where one can go for more information which keeps the book from getting bogged down in details for the more advanced programmer but provides a less experienced person with tools to bone up on when they need the extra help.
I also like the description where the author spells out the recommended knowledge level for this book. I think its spot on.

Highly recommended 11 Sept. 2012
By Ayp - Published on
Format: Paperback
Building Web Applications with SVG David Dailey

ISBN-13: 978-0735660120

This book is from Microsoft Press and like any other books from the publisher it is easy and nice to read.
The concepts are introduced so that even novice readers can read understand them. The book starts with the basics with case study of 13 examples from the web.
and then going on about creating various shapes and editing them. Then it discusses about
colors, gradients, clipping and masking, transforms etc. One whole chapter is dedicated to motion and interactivity using animation. The chapter on filters and combining filters are good too.

Highly recommend this book for all.
No table of contents on Kindle! 16 Oct. 2014
By Anthony J. Fournier - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
My low rating is completely due to the Kindle version of this book missing a table of contents! This makes the book pretty much useless as a reference for SVG on Kindle. I really feel that I wasted my money on this. Should have known something would be screwy when I saw the "Microsoft" branding on the cover.

Good book 10 Sept. 2012
By ABD HABRA - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have not finished reading the whole book yet, but so far, it is well readable, it has some typos in the given coordinates, but not too many. I recommend the book for someone who wants to learn SVG.
