Dear strokes followers,
It's now time to switch to English as our next workshop will welcome John MC Haltiwanger from Phillie !
Keep ready. As you know, our next live session will happen in one week and a half now. To be well prepared and fully armed for this next step, it would be great that all of you synchronize with the git.
Did you managed to translate the git basics ? http://stdin.fr/Bazar/GitBasics If needed we can organize a Skype session with 2 of you who will then pass along their knowledge with the rest.
To start the next workshop we'll need your turtle font (in sfd format or ufo package). That means that you're welcome to push your drawings, (we already pushed the svg glyphs in a "alphabet2" folder) so you can gather them in a same document and work on harmonization before you import it in FontForge. The easiest way, although a bit laborious, to prepare it for Fontforge is to save each glyph in a 1000 x 1000 px size svg file (all glyphs at the same scale).
We worked a little bit on our website so that you can visualize better how git can be useful in working collaboratively. So on the page http://ospwork.constantvzw.org/workshop/up-pen-down/ , you can see : - on the 1st column, what we call the "iceberg" or "la partie visible du gros bloc de glace". It is simply a folder in the project where we put snapshots of the process and finished stuff. It's an easy way to get an idea of what the project looks like. - on the 2nd column, the whole history of the project with the latest action at the top. It's very nice to read the whole story at once. - on the 3rd column is the tree directory of the project. You can navigate in folders. For now previsualization of documents is broken but it should be back soon.
As you might have understood, the iceberg contains only snapshots - therefore small pictures. Original pictures are hosted on our gallery at http://osp.constantvzw.org/images/Up-Pen-Down/ Feel free to download them, we don't put it in the git as the connection at the school is quite slow.
What about plotters ? Did you spotted an opportunity?
à très vite
