We are looking for someone to teach a half-day course in using Inkscape
for SVGOpen 2007. SVGOpen is an annual SVG conference, and this year,
it is being held in Tokyo. The class would be the afternoon of
September 4, 2007.
The teacher should be very familiar with Inkscape, and would ideally
have some knowledge about the SVG format. This is not intended to be a
design course, but it would be nice if the teacher has a good design
sense, or even training in design. If the teacher is comfortable with
other design tools, such as Illustrator, that might help in answering
student questions. The teacher should speak adequate English, but a
Japanese translator may be available.
Ohhh---alas that right around then is absolutely the *worst* time for me
to be travelling! Theoretically, I should be utterly sleep deprived and
in the throes of newborn baby-care.
(Otherwise, while I can't claim to be absolutely expert with Inkscape, i
do have a solid background in Illustrator, familiarity with a handful of
other vector design tools (and a solid background in raster tools as
well), as well as having learned Japanese as a first language (it's
not as good as my English, though!))
