Upcoming speaking events & beyond

So you’re already keeping up with the Typekit blog — great! Want even more from our team? Check out these opportunities to hear from some of us in person, or to catch up with some of our writing.

Elastic{ON}

Senior computer scientist Marko Iskander will be speaking at a session at Elastic{ON}, a user conference on Elasticsearch that’s being held in San Francisco from February 17–19. Marko’s session is on the 18th, and will cover how Typekit adds context to queries in its API and UI. Registration is still open as of this writing.

Git for Humans

When he hasn’t been occupied with product management duties here at Typekit, David Demaree has been writing a book that demystifies Git — and it has just been published! You can find Git for Humans from A Book Apart. (And there’s an excerpt on A List Apart, if you’d like to get a preview.)

CJK Type Blog

Senior computer scientist Ken Lunde pulled together some early thoughts on the next Unicode version under development, and also shared some information about the Unicode Consortium’s Adopt-a-Character campaign (which we’ll be saying more about soon here). He blogs regularly at CJK Type, which we’d recommend bookmarking if CJK type is an interest of yours.

The State of Web Type

Senior computer scientist Bram Stein added a new entry on The State of Web Type to explain the effect of the same-origin-policy on web fonts, and documenting which browsers currently have CORS support. Bram maintains this site, and it’s a great resource for checking on browser support for web typography.
