We are hiring a front-end web developer to support our existing back-end developer in the creation of a new web application. If this assignment goes well there is potential for follow-on, long-term work.
We'd like you to build a carousel which incorporates real weather data. Please take the data from YQL and pick a few cities from around the world - here's an example feed.
The carousel should have the following features:
1. At least four or five slides
2. Left/right arrows
3. "Blobs" at the bottom which take you directly to a slide
4. Some form of animation between the different carousel slides
5. Do not use an existing carousel plugin (eg. a jQuery plugin) and do not adapt your code from one
We're looking for:
good, clean, semantic HTML5 markup
appropriate use of jQuery (or similar)
weather data should be presented meaningfully, like a real weather app
Extra points for:
good use of CSS3 animations
use of a framework like Backbone or Ember
use of Sass, Mustache, Coffeescript, or anything new, fun, or interesting :-)
IMPORTANT: In the first line of your bid please include "I read your proposal." I know it's a little harsh but I really want genuine considered bids so will discard any bid that doesn't have this in the first line.
Skills: test, design
