Everything you need to know to start animating with Greensock's Animation Platform

If you're a front-end developer, an HTML5 banner ad creator or just a general web animation enthusiast with even a passing interest in making things move on the web, you'll benefit from this free course. The Greensock Animation Platform has exploded in popularity recently. Maybe you've even visited their website, seen some of the stunning creations other designers and developers like you have created and you're wondering how to get started.

Well, this course is here to help you understand the basics of Greensock quickly, so you can get on to the fun part of creating dazzling animations for any purpose. In less than an hour you'll be guided through four short lessons. Each lesson contains hands-on demonstrations on you can experiment with.

Short Version

Siggy, as friends and enemies call him, is a FullStack JavaScript Developer with over 15 years of web development experience. At work he also happens to be the developer who can also draw, so inevitably always gets handed the dry-erase marker during design sessions.

The Whole Nine

Siggy was born many moons ago as an artist, got in trouble for drawing cartoons in class, compensated by taking way too many math classes, then somehow managed to shoe-horn a computer science degree in between marathon sessions of black-jack. Then he discovered Flash, fell in love with Flash, made lots of noise and cash with Flash (apparently ad agencies love[d] it), got bored, read Bruce Mau's Incomplete Manifesto, wandered the earth like Kane for a few years while attempting to grow a beard. Shaved. Mourned the death of his dearly beloved Flash. Learned who the hell Douglas Crockford was and marveled at his kung-fu. Contemplated deeply. Very deeply. Swallowed his pride and embraced the long-scorned web maiden that is JavaScript! ...but kept his sketchbook close by.
