Performant, accessible animations with CSS & a dash of JavaScript

Wing Ho Front End Engineer Data61

Animations have potential to add detail and flair to your user experience, but may introduce some issues for assistive technology and render performance. It’s now common practice to include some animation in web apps to enhance user experience.

We'll go over common accessibility issues with CSS animations, why people may not be aware of the fact that some of their CSS animations are not accessible, and some simple ways this can be resolved with minimal JavaScript. We will also do a quick dive into the performance differences across various animation methods.
