Title of the Thesis Programming Animations - Current Practice and the Effect of Integrated Live Evaluation

Abstract Animations come in all different size and shapes. While animated movies make use specialized software to create and render them, small animations in everyday UI programming, that provide small cues in the understanding of a program (and sometimes do nothing more than provide a visual treat to the user), will be implemented and defined using plain source code. This thesis will give an overview of how animations are currently defined and present a prototype to improve the development process using live evaluation, along with the effect the prototype has on the developer and the source code.
