On November 17, Mark Miller and I will host our live online workshop dedicated to animations in SharePoint.
The main featured customizations will be scrolling news and the image rotator. To give you a feel for what you’ll be playing with, I have created a live demo:
[This is a mockup, I am still working on the final scripts for the workshop]
The engines behind these customizations are two highly acclaimed jQuery plugins: Scrollable and Cycle. There are also a couple others working behind the scene, like the Easing plugin (which creates the optional bouncing effect in the image rotator).
An important note: the focus of the workshop is the SharePoint UI, not jQuery. We’ll learn how to pull the content from SharePoint lists, and format it to feed the plugins. We’ll also see how to optimize the display of images to reduce bandwidth.
If you like what you see, feel free to use the comments section below, to give me feedback and ask for more details. We are very flexible, and we’ll adapt the workshop content to your needs!
The live online workshop is scheduled on November 17 at 1:00 PM (EST). I hope to see you there!
