Introduction to Core Animation

I recently gave a talk introdcing the basics of Core Animation at the Boulder iOS Developers Meetup. I wrote an iPad application that shows off several of the aspects of Core Animation including UIKit animation, Basic Animations, Group Animations, Key Frame animation, Core Animation Transitions, Embedding video in a layer, 3D Transforms, and using Core Animation to build custom user interfaces.

Here's a screenshot of the app. May not look like much, but each pane of the UI shows a different demo and the entire application itself is implemented using Core Animation.

I'll be posting details of each of the demos and the application itself over the next several posts. My code is located on GitHub at if you'd like to follow along. The next post gives an introduction to Core Animation.
