Martine Dowden Speaking at NDC Oslo
The Andromeda CTO will travel to Norway to give a talk on CSS

Andromeda Founder and CTO Martine Dowden will be traveling to Oslo, Norway to speak at the NDC Oslo Conference on Thursday, September 29th.

Martine’s talk, CSS in Motion: Animations for fun and profit will run from 11:40am - 12:40 pm CEST (5:40 AM - 6:40 AM Eastern), in Room 7 at the Oslo Spektrum in the heart of Oslo When we open a door in the physical world, it does not instantly go from closed to open. There is a transition period between the two states when the door is in motion. We can now also give our users transitions between states in our UIs using CSS animations and transitions. Whether we are opening a menu, adding a hover effect, or creating a loader, animating the transition between states can help keep our users oriented and give our applications a much more natural feel. In this talk attendees will look at examples of when animations would be helpful, the difference between transitions and animation, how to implement keyframes, CSS limitations and JavaScript options to overcome them, and accessibility concerns regarding animations.
