js1k.com – A lovely js competition.

It’s that time of year again. If you’re not familiar with js1k, it’s defined as:

The object of this competition is to create a cool JavaScript “application” no larger than 1k. Starting out as a joke, the first version ended with a serious amount of submissions, prizes and quality.

The entries are often quite impressive and more than that, primed for learning. I always like spending some time digging through the submissions to see how creative people can get with their obfuscation.
