Creating live Instant App using Famous Pro
Sara Stoddard, product lead at Famous, will be demonstrating an early look at a new design tool called Famous which will become available in April in beta. Famous is a new designer tool that enables designers to design a progressive web experience from beginning to end all within one tool and without requiring any coding. In Famous, designers can import their artboards, add animations and interactions, view their designs live while creating them on any device, publish to the web, and see live analytics immediately. In the talk, Sara will be creating several live apps on the audience's mobile devices including
• Semper Fi - a video game instant app that showcases 3D animations interacting with auto-playing video that she'll build live on phones and publish to the web (Demo can be seen here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x-c1UdrNl20)
• CoffeeHouse - a coffee instant app that showcases compositing transitions and micro-animations moving in opposition to create stunning effects that she'll build live on phones and publish to the web (Demo can be seen here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KH0zXdQq76Q)
• Viva - an advanced design that showcases how to create custom animations, a custom animation style guide that she'll build live on phones and publish to the web (Demo can be seen here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vsA9mEpQ7dA)
During the creation of each experience, Sara will engage with the audience and answer questions that designers have about how to use Famous, use cases, limitations, what's available in beta and what's not, when we will be launch the PC and Linux versions of Famous and when we will be supporting importing from Adobe's products. Sara' been with Famous since almost the beginning and she leads our community speaking events so she'll be able to answer pretty much any question the community may have.
