10:00 Keyframes and Animation in CSS
Keyframes and animation have been part of CSS3 for some time. From animating your logos to complex page changes, making use of the transition and animation properties can bring some originality to your web pages.
Transitions in CSS move items from A to B. Keyframes allow for more complex movements.
Just remember, just because you can, doesn’t mean you should!
Let’s build one together. How about a simple sunrise. Open CodePen, we’ll do this one from scratch and learn about the long and shorthand CSS animation properties, use some gradients, incorporate SVGs and other CSS properties we’ve been doing this week.
When complete, drop your animation in the dropbox.

12:15 W3 Schools – SLAM!
A Slam is a quick-paced, high energy demonstration where the presenter has three minutes to demonstrate their topic. For today, you are going to research and prepare a Demonstration Slam using a topic or topics of your choice found on W3schools.com
Maybe you want to demo Advanced CSS topics like tooltips, positioning, gradients, lightboxes, modals, transitions, etc…. There’s so much stuff!
Prepare your Slam by creating a CodePen of it. The point of the Slam is to wow us and/or inform us about something we might not have understood and something you might not totally understand but you are working to figure it out.
Don’t freak out, you can do this. I do it everyday. Place the link to your Slam in Dailies. We will begin at 1:40pm.
