- [Voiceover] Hello, I'm Val Head, designer and consultant. I want to welcome you to CSS Animations. I'll show you some of the things you can do with CSS Animations, and what they're best at now and into the near future. We'll start with a solid foundation of the syntax of CSS Animations, we'll build a sample project to see some of it in practice, and cover lots of advice for how you can take advantage of animations in your own work. We'll finish things off with a discussion of browser support and helpful tools you can use to be more productive creating animations.

I'm really excited about the options that CSS Animations open up for us, and I hope you are too. So, let's get started.
