10k Apart Contest 2016: Building a Website Under 10KB

There is a very interesting web design contest going on online, called 10k Apart. It puts emphasis on building a website “optimizing every little byte like your life depends on it and ensuring your site can work, no matter what”. Their challenge is to build such an optimized site that your pages load under 10KB size limit! The contest is open till September 30th.

I have participated in the contest and my entry is just as “random” as it gets – it is about randomness! It’s a quite minimally designed, single-page website made with HTML5, CSS3 and some JavaScript, and shows that you can build a pretty site with pretty simple code! It has got some optimization hacks too, like optimized URLs, use of character entities as icons and so on. Very little JS is used with fallback options. Total cost: 7.02 KB. 😀
