Font Bakery is a continuous integration server for fonts developed collaboratively using Git. In addition to a standard UFO compilation process, written in Python and driven by Fontforge, it offers a battery of tests that prove quality of sources and binaries, and point to future work to be done. This presentation will conclude with future possibilities and invite discussion about the future of collaborative type design. 100% Python, the build and tests are easy to modify and extend.
Dave Crossland attended the first LGM as an undergraduate graphic design student in London, and focused his studies and career on libre graphics ever since. After graduating from a Masters programme in Typeface Design he was lucky to be invited by Google to arrange financial support for new libre font projects, designed for the web, and today there are hundreds of such projects. http://fontforge.github.io/
