Frontend Dev Challenge: Week 3

Every two weeks the Frontend Team at Fueled partake in a development challenge: a loose brief is given to the team on a Friday (with the briefs being decided by any of the team with a suitable idea), between Monday and Wednesday we build our solutions, and then on our weekly team call we each present our submission providing rationale and opening up a discussion – typically people talk about the bits they enjoyed, found tricky, and areas they’d have further elaborated on if they’d had the time.

The Brief

Using only HTML, CSS and JS create a 2D scene of your choosing. You may not use images (this includes inline/encoded SVGs). Bonus points for animation!

The Submissions

“I wanted maximum visual effect with minimum code – HTML canvas and CSS animations did the job!”

Rob Sterlini

“In my head a bike is a relatively simple set of components so drawing them with just CSS would be easy, but it turns out they’re super complicated and aren’t really made up of regular shapes – a bike with no breaks or pedals is the most I could manage in 2 hours.”
