Solutions to example challenges
Test round: Manoonchai
Qualifiers #1: Chat
This challenge focuses basic web development knowledge, such as using the flexbox layout, dealing with margins and padding, creating rounded corners, and working with backgrounds and borders.
One tricky part of this challenge is that the adjacent corners between the 2nd and the 3rd message must not be rounded. Also, the gap between consecutive messages from the same person needs to be smaller than the gap between messages from different people.
Qualifiers #2: Pastel Collage
Qualifiers #3: Instagram Post
This challenge focuses on recreating a UI of a familiar app.
This round places some emphasis on efficiency, as there are many details that has to be created from scratch, such as the kebab menu, the dotted pagination indicator, and the gradient ring around the profile picture.
Qualifiers #4: Checkerboard
Semi-finals #1: Instagram Story
This challenge focuses on creating a high-fidelity UI within a limited amount of time.
Efficiency is a key factor as there are many components, such as the story bar, the input boxes, the stickers, and the circular profile pictures, one of which must stick out of the sticker.
Some elements are placed arbitrarily on the page, so knowing how to use absolute positioning can also help.
Semi-finals #2: Numpad
This challenge requires creating a grid of buttons, but some of the buttons can span multiple rows or columns. The contestant must also maintain the aspect ratio of each button. This can usually be most easily done using either a grid layout, an absolute layout, or a table layout.
Finals: Control Room
Inspired by the control room scene from Squid Game, this challenge combines many areas of CSS knowledge.
CSS transforms are used to rotate the grid by 45 degrees. An extra rotation is added to keep the numbers and pictures inside the grid unrotated.
CSS filters and blend modes are used to apply filter to the cat images to give them a pink shade, as the provided cat images are full of color.
