Beyond the Slideshow: Website Animation Tools for WordPress Portland Oregon USA May 2019


It’s usually said, that people respond to art, the concept of the website and animation is all about the quote that is “it’s sold what is visible”

In this meetup, Jenny Stoffel will be discussing website animation tools for WordPress.

Many people like to have animation on their website, where just being a developer would not help the website owner in achieving the goal. Here, the meetup has the aim of gathering developers and designers belonging to a different field of coding or WordPress where Jenny will be discussing how important is an animation for any website in order to gain customers attention which can be helpful in getting maximum business.

Many website owners are unsure of how to get the animation on their website without a great deal of time and expense. If you are a developer, lack of design experience can be a barrier, and lack of coding knowledge can stymie a designer.

A decade ago, one might have spent hour upon hour on Photoshop or GIMP building layers for HTML image mapping, all of which had to be redone when a change needed to be done. Here, the process is time-consuming and old, where now animation can be done on any website with just the help of the animation tools available in WordPress.

WordPress has almost 50+ animation plugins which can be used to input any animation image or videos in any website that too without worrying about the coding stuff. WordPress helps the WordPress developer to use several tools available in WordPress itself were having a specific coding language about the animation is not needed.

Today, we still marvel at the difference engaging, effective animations can make on a site, but there are tools to make getting marvelous animations possible for anyone. This talk will look at tools and pathways which might inspire you to include more accessible animations in your website build.

This talk will cover:

— When to use animations, accessibility concerns

The animation is a great tool to make your website brighter and more effective.

It is important that the web be accessible to everyone in order to provide equal access and equal opportunity to people with disabilities.

— Tools to help achieve sophisticated, interactive animation effects for those without coding knowledge

Being a WordPress user or developer, one does not have to be master in any coding language, as its all readymade where plugins play their part and work is been done with ease.

— Beyond the basics: hand-coding animations, file overview and where to find inspiration and resources for hand-coding animations.

This talk will interest graphic designers who are interested in ways their design might bring life to the website.

This talk will interest the developers who are looking for more ways to easily incorporate complex visual elements to their buildups.
