In this episode, we talk to Alex Lockwood who created shapeshifter.design, while at Google. Shape Shifter is an amazing tool that can help developers create Animated Vector Drawables without losing all their hair. Think of shapeshifter as a developer-friendly, open source, After Effects alternative for Android developers.
Alex talks to us about how and why he created Shape Shifter, the different tools that have evolved out of its creation and just getting a good grasp of its working.
