[Treehouse Teacher Q & A] 0:00 [Question: What are the some of the most jaw-dropping websites that you have come across lately?] 0:04 What are some of the most jaw-dropping sites you've come across recently 0:06 and what about them made them standout for you? 0:10 Oh gosh! What are some of the most jaw-dropping sites I've seen lately. 0:13 Oh that's really putting me on the spot. 0:18 I'm actually going to go ahead and open up my Instapaper right now and-- 0:21 This is risky folks. This is pretty risky. I had a look at his Instapaper earlier. 0:27 And see here. Oh my gosh! I'm going to log in. 0:32 You know anytime I do come across a jaw-dropping site, 0:35 I do go ahead and save it in Instapaper and again it comes back to that inspiration 0:41 thing where I go ahead and save stuffs to go ahead and look back up later. 0:47 Sometimes I can come from a design blog. 0:55 Other times it might just be like a really cool CSS technique or something. 0:58 I got one for you. What do you think of the parallax scrolling? 1:06 What do I think about parallax scrolling? >>Yeah. 1:11 The new Nike make site makes pretty interesting use of it. 1:13 I figured you're going to bring that up. 1:16 The new site is so awesome. The air Jordan 012 site fired up over here 1:18 and see if you can--let's see--what, choose your flight. 1:25 You're just scrolling and there is like crazy rocketships made of shoes. 1:28 This is maybe not great for every single website but-- 1:32 It's I mean, it definitely has a lot of visual flare in it 1:36 and has that layered interactivity that I was talking about where it's not deeply interactive 1:39 but you can kind of go ahead and explore at your own pace and as you're scrolling 1:44 like different things happen on the page. 1:50 I've seen a lot of examples of that, I think it's-- 1:53 At first when I first saw it, I was like--this is really gimmicky.. 1:56 It's cool like don't get me wrong--definitely as a designer 1:59 and somebody that enjoys CSS like 2:04 I thought it was super, super noble and interesting but I am also very practical. 2:07 I'm always going to think like, okay, how I would use this for realsies? 2:13 I think that's something that kind of sets me apart from other designers 2:19 like I really, as much as I want to, I'm not just going to do something for the sake of it, 2:24 like I really have to figure out, okay, immediately how I'm I going to use this, 2:30 but I think parallax scrolling is pretty cool and probably here to stay. 2:35 One site that I did really enjoy was this jessandruss.us. 2:40 It was kind of circulating around the Twitters here a little while ago. 2:47 Basically, it tells a story of these two people that are getting married 2:54 and to get it uses parallax scrolling and as you scroll on the page, 2:58 you kind of see how these two timelines eventually intertwined. 3:02 So. >>That's really cool. >>Yeah. I thought it was pretty neat and it was a good way to tell a story. 3:08 So that might be one practical use. 3:13 [Question: What are the some of the most jaw-dropping websites that you have come across lately?] 3:16 [Treehouse Teacher Q & A] 3:17
