We started off with hot pizza & broke down to our best 80’s Dance Moves as the ice breaker. (sorry, no pictures were taken for this part due to our Dance Moves being too awesome for the camera). :p
Then, a speed-dating style Webmaker Tool mini-challenges series started! With the first contestant being X-Ray Goggles. Participants came up with their “ideal date” by hacking a webpage featuring their ideal date. We wanted to share this but unfortunately the X-ray Goggles’s publish function failed on us that night… I’ve confirmed that by the time of this blog post, the publish function is back on and hopefully it would work during Maker Faire. 🙂
Sticking with the theme of speed dating, our second webmaker contestant was Thimble and participants were asked to create a profile page about themselves or about their ideal date. I gotta say, these are some pretty creative looking profile pages made using Thimble.
- Map of Dethe
- Taylor Swift Profile Page
- Hello World! I’m Sandie
- How to be awesome
- Billy’s amazing profile
- Internet freedom & Beer
Last by not least, we have Popcorn Maker! Participants were asked to create a fun project featuring their personal hobby/interests.
