Glyphs at TypeCon 2016 ‘Resound’

  • Event
  • Seattle, Washington

Glyphs is happy to be a TypeCon sponsor this year! Team members Georg Seifert and Rainer Erich Scheichelbauer will be present and available for answering all your questions. As long as they are Glyphs-related, that is.

And, as every year, we will be hosting a workshop. But this time, we have something truly special and geeky for you: a Python workshop! A quick script can save you a lot of time and increase the quality especially of complex projects. And, it actually is fun. Plus, there is a chance for a dedicated Glyphs feature discussion with the Glyphs developer Georg! For details, see below.

See you at TypeCon!
