CSS Animations intro

Be the best version of you.

An example from the Scrimba course.

Last weekend I finally dove into a topic I’ve long been curious about: CSS animations. JavaScript is often the tool developers use to create movement on a website. But CSS can do a lot and with much less technical debt.

I’ve dabbled a bit in animation. My third portfolio included a background hover property which felt really neat. But mostly, if I needed a feature on my WordPress site, my first thought was to look for a plugin. Being able to write a few lines of code and have an element dance on the screen is a lot of fun though.

If you’re interested in taking the same class, it was free and watching all the videos takes about 2 hours. Don’t forget to plan for some practice time. Find it here: Learn CSS Animations, Scrimba.
