I just wanted the simplest form of a slider. I stripped everything to just 2 images.
The worst part about the internet is not many tutorials or help forums break it down to the bare bones. Once I understand the bare bones to an application, I can apply this concept to other forms of web development.
I found a tutorial that talked about shifting the view plane with margin-left and then it started to click. I can now start building on the image slider. My next step will be to add click events.
