Inspiration is everywhere. And sometimes we just have to dig into the right places to find them. When it comes to developing amazing websites, Codepen seem to keep a pretty valuable collection of inspiration and insights.
Ioana Iordache, women of our community #AllWomen, shared with us her favorite projects of this platform:
1. POMODORO CLOCK by TecKL
“Although I’ve also built a Pomodoro Clock App, when taking a look at other projects for inspiration, this one definitely caught my eye. The design is elegant and spontaneous, but the code is immaculate (from a geeky person’s perception :P). It was my first encounter with SCSS and was intrigued by the practicality of it but beyond that the JQuery is amazingly well organised, commented and extremely easy to follow. You can check out the code in the “Fork Mode” here.”
2. TIC-TAC-TOE game by IoanaOrka
“I just loved the implications on this project. First struggling with constructing a simple design that’s intuitive to use but still bringing something new to the same old Tic Tac Toe game that everyone knows, and second building the intricate algorithm that never lets a user win. The interesting thing about the method is that for every move the human player does the computer calculates around 65.000 possibilities of every situation (see the console), turning the computer player into an unbeatable AI opponent”.
