Everyone knows that strong essences are kept in small bottles. “Code in the dark” is a very popular competition program in the developer communities, which consists of testing the ability of creating interfaces without previewing them before the end of the competition.
Why have we associated “Code in the dark” with a strong essence, in a small bottle? Because it challenges both the knowledge and the imagination, without using the every-day programming tools. You have only 20 minutes to reproduce the model created by the jury.
Normally, the participants only use HTML/CSS, but we added a category for Mobile interfaces. They had the same model, but they needed to reproduce it on a tablet screen. The race was wild, the competitors wrote code down to the last second. The presence of spectators put even more pressure on them, but the results were as expected. The announcing of the winner was the peak at the end of the event.
We are looking forward to the next edition.
