This past January, creative web developers from around the world showed us what they could do with drag and drop interaction in the January Dev Derby contest. After looking through the entries, our three new expert judges–Craig Cook, Franck Lecollinet, and Guillaume Lecollinet–decided on four 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 drag and drop today.
- First place: Pete’s Adventure by sophomore Seba
- Second place: Tie between okifu by newcomer Jesús Pérez and Block Puzzle by game lover ZofiaKorcz
- Third place: Beyer Music Player by the always creative Alvaro Mouriño
These contestants were not satisfied just bringing this age-old interaction to the Web. They also made it fun, helpful, musical, and even a little amusing. Congratulations to them and to all of the amazing contestants who pushed the limit of drag and drop interaction.
Want to get a head start on an upcoming Derby? We are now accepting demos related to mobile web development in general (March), Web Workers (April), and by popular demand, getUserMedia (May). Head over to the Dev Derby to get started.
