The Web Animations API had a gangbusters year: we have seen frameworks like Angular and Ionic adopt it, actual animation libraries built on it, and more and more examples of it showing up in the wild. It feels like just yesterday I was working on its MDN docs with the good folks at Mozilla, making cute demos with Alice in Wonderland. I'm so happy to see how much folks are using it in the wild! I wonder what new things we'll see in 2018?
Speaking of documentation, the other day I met someone looking for a job in tech who didn't know how to break into contributing to opensource projects. They weren’t sure what they could offer beyond documentation. But docs are one of the best ways you can contribute to a project! I encouraged them—and you—to give time to writing docs around your favorite projects. Even if you're not as technical as you think, an illustration, an explanation, they can go a long way to helping what you love take off.
People can’t use what they don’t understand. So authoring docs can be one of the biggest ways you can have impact on this world! Something to think about for 2018, eh?
