Animation without JavaScript: Making it snow in Paris

A session at JS.everywhere(2012) Europe

Saturday 17th November, 2012

3:10pm to 4:20pm (PMT)

A dead battery is bad user experience.
Animating with JavaScript drains the CPU and the users’ batteries. Animating with CSS is smoother, and leaves the UI thread free for other, actually important tasks. Help ensure your users don’t hate you by animating with CSS. While not a panacea, CSS3 Animations can be the solution.
With CSS3 transitions and animations you can recreate almost all of the effects previously reserved to the realm of plugins, without making your users hate you.
From the basics of animation keyframes, to expert tips that will save you many a headache, Estelle takes you on a look at all you need to know to get you up and running with CSS3 transitions and animations.
