Talk 1: Creative development for dummies

“Can you add some scroll animations?” is the new “can you make the logo bigger?” for creative developers, but sometimes less is more. Motion can be used to enrich experiences but there’s a fine line between creative development and animating everything. Let’s walk that line together and talk about why your animations don’t ✨pop✨ (yet).

Talk 2: View transitions: A deep dive

The new View Transitions API lets you create engaging and user-friendly web experiences. They can be used to smoothly transition between pages, views, and components, and can help to make your web app feel more polished and responsive.

In this talk, we will take a deep dive into the new JavaScript View Transitions API for single-page apps. We will explore all of the features and functionality that it offers, and learn how to use it to create custom animations and transitions.
