Breaking the physical limits of fonts

This broke my brain.

The challenge: in the fewest resources possible, render meaningful text.

  • How small can a font really go?
  • How many bytes of memory would you need (to store it and run it?)
  • How much code would it take to express it?

Lets see just how far we can take this!

Cassie’s terrific talk from Bytes Conf, featuring some wild CSS experiments.

Bytes Conference Brighton - A mini-conference on 29th October

This looks like it’s going to be a great evening event. Charlotte and Rosa are both speaking at it, which makes it unmissable in my book.

The very affordable tickets go on sale on Friday, and all the proceeds go to charity.
