Please Your Pixel-Hungry Eyes With Codes That Read Better

If we spent most of our workday staring at the Terminal window, then it’s probably worth to make the letters you see in that window more legible, and the text more readable. This session will introduce you to:

• Readily available font alternatives you can try
• Tips and tricks for better onscreen legibility (do you know that white-on-black type is less legible than black-on-white, or that most fonts can easily be made more readable by tweaking the line spacing? What about anti-aliasing?)
• Tools to design pixel-based fonts and customize existing fonts (like gbdfed)
• Practical tips to drawing and completing your font character set (how should an ‘A’ look?)
• And, if you’re feeling ambitious, tools to design your own font from scratch (with tools like FontForge)
