I find web animations done right among the coolest stuff on the Internet.
Luckily, it doesn’t have to be intimidating: thanks to tools like the GreenSock Animation Platform (GSAP) and the right step-by-step guidance, like the GreenSock Workshop by Petr Tichy (the same guy behind the Parallax Scrolling Master Class and the Skrollr Workshop).
In his hands-on and clear teaching style, Petr walks you through the creation of advanced, state of the art animated web design projects, detailing each step from setting up the HTML and CSS documents all the way to applying GreenSock’s methods.
Modules follow in a logical sequence, each building on the previous one. Also, each lesson is accompanied by two sets of downloadable project files: the starting files and the completed lesson’s files. This way you’re free to follow along with the tutorial video, but also have the chance to check your finished work against the original files, which is a distinctive feature of Petr’s previous courses that I personally find amazingly helpful.
As the icing on the cake, at the end of each project, you’ll get to work on a practice exercise to validate and sharpen your newly gained skills.
I warmly recommend the GreenSock Workshop to all developers who strive for perfection in mastering the latest technologies and are passionate about interactive, seamless web animation effects that won’t make site visitors cringe.
