Announcing the April Dev Derby winners!

Last month, more than twenty amazing HTML5 audio demos were shared in the April Dev Derby competition. After looking through the entries, our three new expert judges—Peter Lubbers, Rob Hawkes, and (filling in for Guillermo this month) Chris Heilmann—have decided on three winners and two runners-up.

You don’t have to be a contestant to get excited. Because these demos are completely open-source, they provide wonderful lessons in all of the exciting things you can do with HTML5 audio today.

Like last month, our judges had a very hard time narrowing the entries down to just these five finalists. So let’s not forget about all of the other great entries. Many of these were only a few votes away from making the final cut, and all of them deserve recognition for pushing audio forward in ways we never imagined.

Want to get a head start on a future Derby? We are also accepting demos that highlight the all that can be done today without JavaScript (July Derby) and demos related to the Camera API (August Derby).
