After recently finding myself bored in a “free lesson” at school, i found it appropriate to equip myself with a friend’s netbook and have a play around with javascript in notepad to show off to my mates. In roughly 2 hours, with nothing more than the stock google chrome, windows notepad (not ++ or anything), and no internet connection, i managed to come up with this:

http://reaper-media.com/labs/gravity_ball/

I am quite pleased with the outcome, i managed to get the physics of it working quite well, you can throw the ball around with your mouse, and reverse gravity by pressing any key. I was going to use trig to have the gravity constantly spinning around but didn’t have enough time to start that.

So anyway I got thinking, we have some pretty skilled coders in the marketplaces, especially on CC, wouldn’t it be interesting to see what you guys could come up with in the same time with the same limitations?

So here’s the challenge:

In two hours, using only a stock plain text editor (no js debugging or code snippets, just like the bog standard notepad in windows, textedit in mac, or gedit in ubuntu. Definately no IDE ’s), your favourite browser with a javascript console (chrome, or FF + firebug) with no more extensions, disconnect yourself from the internet, and abandon any javascript books you may know, and see what you can come up with. You are not allowed to use any libraries like jQuery, everything must be done from scratch.

Of course it’s not limited to just javascript, you can mix all aspects of html, css and js to get your creation. Lets see what you guys can come up with!

Good luck ;-)

Don’t forget to state the exact tools you used and how long it took you to develop whatever it is you’re going to develop!

NOTE : in all marketplaces to span CC, TF and AD
