About this event

One of the foundations of Material Design is Motion. Effective motion can be used to provide user feedback, guide interaction focus, establish visual relationships between elements, and provide important polish and delight. Creating apps with effective motion hasn't always been simple, but I have learned some techniques to make it easy. Come to this session where I will show you how to use touch feedback, transitions and animations to make your applications come alive with effective motion and be more enjoyable for your users.
