Last month, some of the most creative web developers out there showed us what they could do with the Fullscreen API in the November Dev Derby contest. After looking through the entries, our three expert judges–Christian Heilmann, Dave Rupert and Eric Shepherd–decided on three winners and two runners-up.
Not a contestant? There are other reasons to be excited. Most importantly, all of these demos are completely open-source, making them wonderful lessons in the exciting things you can do with the Fullscreen API today.
- First place: Story of a Knight by newcomer serse
- Second place: 3d Grapher with fullscreen by October winner Małgorzata Jatczyk
- Third place: Church Web Presenter by Derby veteran Marc Castles
- Back in time by the October third place winner Tomasz Kołodziejski
- Album web full-screen by newcomer Alejandro Manrique
This was a challenging contest to be sure. After all, what’s so great about taking over the entire screen? Our contestants provided some surprising answers. Fullscreen web applications mean immersive storytelling, engaging education, beautiful projection and more.
Congratulations to these winners and to everyone who competed. The Web is a more exciting place thanks to their work.
Want to get a head start on an upcoming Derby? We are now accepting demos related to offline web technologies (December), and Drag and Drop (January) and multi-touch (February). Head over to the Dev Derby to get started.
