Interactive simulation of a Countdown in GWTTo show our love for developers, we created a Valentine's Day version of the Google I/O countdown clock, where our exploding dots changed into hearts floating in the wind. Your challenge will be to express your passion for software development by re-inventing the countdown at www.google.com/io. Small tweaks or (better yet) complete re-imaging of the experience is welcome. Criteria:
Consider leveraging the following technologies:
- Should allow count downs of up to 365 days to a given date
- Must be written using GWT
- You are encouraged to use latest HTML5 constructs such as Canvas, WebGL, etc
- The application may work only on the latest stable Chrome build (does not have to work on older browsers)
- Fast initial load and overall performance is important
- Hosting on App Engine a plus
- Developed in Eclipse and publish source code on Google Project Hosting a plus
- Bonus if it works well on Android
- Consider submitting a video demo of the cool interactive of your app so we are sure to see all the great work you have done.
