Code in the Dark is a front-end (HTML, CSS) competition, originating from a small development group in Europe, where each contestant competes to implement a website design given only a screenshot. The catch is that no previews of the results are allowed during the implementation, and no measuring tools can be used. After 15 minutes, the results are viewed by everyone all at once, and the winner is decided by the audience.
This is the only party/competition in the PNW, it’s open to the public, and FREE.
Each contestant receives a screenshot. They build the page design using HTML/CSS. Any additional assets they might need are provided. No iframes, frameworks, snippets, or external assets. Previews of the results are UNDEFINED until the time is up.
Once the 15 minute timer runs out each contestant presents their result to the audience, who vote via SMS on their favorite.
