A big chunk of our everyday prototyping revolves around figuring out how “things” should appear on and disappear from the screen, based on the user’s input. Often times, designing those interactions will require chaining two or more animations to obtain intuitive and meaningful transitions. Harnessing animation chaining will surely improve your design and make it more attractive and user friendly.
Learning a new programming language can be daunting, especially if it relies heavily on a set of idioms or patterns you have never encountered before. Before you start writing good code in a new language, you first need to know what good code looks like. Having a standard style guide can help you get up to speed on best practices used throughout the community – and making it easier for new developers to join the platform is something we should all strive towards. At Macoscope, we believe in helping fellow developers out, an attitude which we hope is reflected by our small but constantly growing library of open-source code and our engagement with the community at events like Mobile Central Europe.
