Code in the Dark 2019 final
As usual with code in the dark, some aspect of the competition was not without controversy. On top of our usual technical issues with our chromecasts (something we vow to fix by 2020) we decided this year to change things up for our final, some people found this didn’t quite sit well with what code in the dark is.
In previous years we have had our contestants attempt to animate something using css but of course, coding blind. This has been challenging enough but doing it four years in a row we felt some of our regulars would have css animation syntax memorised and practised to such a degree that new contestants would be unable to compete.
So we changed things up
We’re going to show what our final challenge was, how we solved it and then how our contestants tried to solve it.
