Came across this question on twitter today and my interest was piqued.
Anyone feel like sharing their favorite conference talks from this year? #CodeNewbie @virengb
So I went across to YouTube to see what has been happening in that space recently and came across this nice talk – Paint the Web with CSS – Eva Lettner @ WeAreDevelopers Conference 2017. It was short, fun, educational and telling. My key takeaways were
- Make the web a better and more beautiful place
- Learning can and should be fun
- It is not recommended to do this in production as you are better off using SVG graphics
- The internet is full of opportunities to learn and to share what you know
So I decided to put this to practice. I created a scene where the Trinidad flag is raised, the sun rises and then sets behind the northern range, and then the flag is lowered. I am missing a man walking across to handle the flag though. Share your thoughts with us in the comments below. My code which has not been tested thoroughly is here. The recorded animation is below on my YouTube channel.
