Animation brings an interactive experience to life. The appropriate use of motion in a web page or app conveys more information than static content. It also serves to make a more enjoyable user experience that keeps people coming back. It is important to achieve high fidelity in an animation — a consistent rate of 60 frames per second. Anything less leads to an inorganic and less compelling experience.
In addition to APIs, high-quality animation requires effective workflows and tooling. With animation being such a visual craft, text-based workflows will only get us so far. In this session, we will explore some of the visual tools to help us build better animations more easily than ever before.
