GeekMeet with Mark Wubben at Bwin!

Just home from the GeekMeet, todays event was hosted by Bwin and the special guest was Mark Wubben, a duth developer living in copenhagen, working for aLlondon based company on visit in Sweden. What a globaliz€d world right!

Mark works on his sparetime with developing sIFR (important, which letter are uppercase/lowercase) held a presentation about the state of web typography on the web. Basically it boils down to a bunch of boring legal things. Which in the end leads to a crapier user experience and the need of a hack. Enter sIFR, which is according to Mark just that, a hack.

Mark showed some code examples and talked about drawbacks and where to use it. Overall I found the presentation interesting, but also longing for some more examples. Good thing that Mark is coming to our office tomorrow to hold a sIFR workshop.

The workshop will be held from 13 to 16 at Skeppsbron 34. There are some seats left, so if you wanna come, please email me at henrik.kraft@nansen.se. First come first serve basis...

See you tomorrow Mark, and thanks Robert and Bwin for hosting the event!
