What Do We Want From You?
Size — Your total initial download can’t be over 10kB. You can lazy-load additional resources, but your project must be usable in 10kB or less. Scrutinize your project’s performance.
Interoperability — Your project must work equally well in all modern browsers. We may look at it in Lynx too. Or Opera Mini. Your code should have standards.
Accessibility — Everybody should be able to use your awesome creation. Interaction methods, screen sizes, contrast, assistive technologies… it’s all about creating opportunity. Embrace inclusive design.
Progressive Enhancement - The Web is a messy place and you never know what technologies will be available in your user’s devices and browsers. Build in layers.
Libraries — This time around, we want you to account for every bit of code you use, so you can use a library or parts of one, but it counts against your 10k if you load it by default. Use only what you need.
