Course Overview Hi, this is Sriyank Siddhartha, and welcome to my course of Android Animations. I am a freelance Android developer and trainer with several years of experience in the field of Android development. Animations can add visual cues that notify users about what is going on in your application. They are especially useful when the UI changes state, such as when a new content loads or new actions become available. Animations also add a polished look to your application, which gives it a higher quality look and feel. Well, Android includes different animation animation APIs depending on what type of animation you want, so this course covers all of the important animation APIs found in Android. Some of the major topics that we will cover include exploring property animation APIs, how to apply multiple animations on UI elements, applying transitions between layouts using Transition API, apply transition between activities, and finally, learn to animate drawables by using animated vector drawables. By the end of this course, you will know how to apply animations to your applications. Before starting the course, you should be familiar with using Android Studio, the basics of Android application development, also just the basics and syntax of the Kotlin programming language. So I hope you will join me on this journey to learn animations in Android, only at Pluralsight. See you in the course.
