Animation has come a long way on the modern web and now we have a long list of choices for how to make something move on screen: CSS, JavaScript, SVG, the Web Animation API. With so many options, how can you be sure which is the best choice for your project?

In this 60-minute video caught live at An Event Apart Denver 2017, web animation expert, author, and Design Evangelist at Adobe Val Head teaches you which animation options are the best fit for common UI design tasks.

With an eye on both the strategy and tactics of animation needs, Val will survey the full spectrum of animation options from CSS to React Motion, and reveal which are best suited for things like state transitions, showing data, animating illustrations, or making animations responsive. You’ll also see how your choice of animation tools can impact performance. By the end of the hour, you’ll know exactly which tools to choose for your animation needs.
