Implementation focus: Photo Pairs
Marco Egli is the lead developer for Elstr services in Switzerland. As a break from the daily grind, he decided to get his hands dirty with the latest technology, and created a simple memory game called Photo Pairs.
In his own words:
With the photo pairs project I wanted to get familiar with the latest and greatest in web technology. So I decided to create the backend with node.js and use on frontend HTML5 semantics and CSS3 styles. Because I am quite experienced in using the YUI2 library (for Elstr and the infinite crossword) the new site was ideal to experiment with YUI3. All the pairs games I found in the www were built with predefined images. But I wanted to give a wider variety of possibilities to the user. So it was an obvious decision to use Flickr as a photo source.
The site is using YQL, Tabview, Overlay, Anim, and DataType. Join us to look under the hood.
