Announcing the No JavaScript Challenge (July Dev Derby) winners!

What can I say? Wow.

The No JavaScript Challenge was absolutely incredible. It was our most successful Dev Derby yet, and by far. You shared more than seventy amazing demos of what you can do without touching a single line of JavaScript. More than seventy amazing demos of how powerful declarative markup can be. That’s nearly twice the number of demos submitted to our second most popular Derby.

As you can imagine, it is extremely difficult for us to name only a handful of winners. But after looking through the entries, our three new expert judges — David Walsh, Joe Stagner, and (filling in for John Hammink this month) Chris Heilmann — have decided on their top five picks.



Congratulations to these winners and to all of our contributors for making this our most exciting contest yet. All of these people have done a fantastic job pushing declarative markup forward and deserve lots of praise for doing so. We might even see some of them again next month… here’s hoping!

Enjoy the No JavaScript challenge? Remember that we have a new contest every month! We are now accepting entries related to Geolocation (September), CSS Media Queries (October), and the Full Screen API (November). Head over to the Dev Derby to get started.
