Fixed Price

Budget: $150
Delivery by April 3, 2013

Start Date

March 20, 2013


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

    excellent understanding of object-oriented JavaScript

    appropriate use of jQuery (or similar)

    weather data should be presented meaningfully, like a real weather app

Extra points for:

    tasteful design

    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
