Frontend Dev Challenge: Week 5

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

Explore the A-Frame framework, using the two hours to try out areas of the documentation to create something.

The Submissions

We're taking a slightly different approach with this week’s submissions and we're keeping them anonymised. With this challenge, the goal was to explore a new framework and see what we could each do within the 2 hours, but without the pressure of needing to create something to a similar level of our previous challenge submissions. By keeping the entries anonymous, we're able to showcase our findings in an area in which we are not yet experts without feeling that pressure.

Between us we came up with a snow globe – an exploration of the particle generator; a floating island in a glass sphere – an exploration of imported models and textures; 3D text – an exploration of font importing into A-Frame; and a red square – an unsuccessful exploration of grouped object animation.

It was a tough challenge, but an interesting one that we all enjoyed – and one that pushed our learning into new places!

Next time…

This is a fortnightly endeavour, so stay tuned!

You can relive past challenges and get updates each time a new set of submissions is added by watching or starring the GitHub repo.
