New Course: CSS Animation in the Real World

CSS animation is everywhere these days. It’s cool to see a collection of CSS loading spinners, or experiment with a neat page slide effect, but how can we actually implement these techniques on our websites and apps? In CSS Animation in the Real World, you’ll learn the ins and outs of CSS animation.

What You’ll Learn

This course is about using CSS animations in real-world situations. Tuts+ instructor Cory Simmons will teach you practical CSS animation tricks for buttons, navigation elements, scroll events, SVG, and how to apply them to a number of situations you’ll come across every day on the web.

You’ll start with an overview of CSS animation basics, and then move on to specific cases, like creating animated drop-down menus, animating SVGs, animating based on page scroll position, and more.
