The Workshop is designed to help you anticipate possible questions, review what you've learned, and begin learning how to put your knowledge into practice.


1: What is the value of having development teams working concurrently?
A1: When development teams (such as creative, architecture, and engineering) work in parallel, you can generally shave time off the production cycle. Also, as all teams are working simultaneously, their ability to share critical knowledge with the other groups is increased (as there is no delay in transmission).
2:True or False: Engineers can begin developing prototype SVG documents after seeing rudimentary design approaches.
A2: True. By working abstractly with simple shapes initially, engineers can focus on creating optimized code. Once the artwork is finished, they can replace their placeholder imagery with the actual designed content.
3:What is the value of naming every element with the id attribute?
A3: The id attribute not only allows SVG content to be referenced internally by animation and interaction elements, but it also lets development teams use a common language to describe content. The designer and engineer will be able to use the same names to describe an object, thus reducing the possibility of mistakes and frustration.
4:True or False: You must comment all of your code for it to work correctly.
A4: False. Commenting code is optional, but can greatly increase the chances you or another developer can understand the intent of your code.
5:True or False: SVG does not require a consistent naming convention.
A5: True. Providing a consistent naming convention is not a mandate of the W3C recommendation. Rather, it becomes a mandate amongst developers once excessive time is spent trying to determine the intent of a developer who did not use a convention.
