Here's an idea: a #NoJS challenge.

Making a website? Avoid using JavaScript.

See how much of the functionality and design you were planning can be done using plain HTML, CSS and other web technologies that are now embedded in the typical browser without needing JavaScript code to do any of it.

Even if it seems impossible, look it up. It just might be possible.

You are all free of debt.”

What is the most profitable business in the world? You might think oil, or maybe banking. You would be wrong. The answer is academic publishing. Its profit margins are vast, reportedly in the region of 40 per cent.

Publicly funded researchers do the work, write it up and judge its merits. And yet the resulting intellectual property ends up in the hands of the publishers. They then sell it via exorbitant subscriptions and paywalls, often paid for by taxpayers too.
