My useless websites

We recently had a competition at work where you had to create a ‘useless website’. There weren’t many rules to the contest (make it publicly accessible, SSFW, enter as many times as you like), so I decided to hedge my bets and create/submit half a dozen simple sites all using the same concept of randomly generating something.

It was a good example of disposable software as I could churn out an entire site in 10 or 15 minutes including publishing it live on github and didn’t have to worry about tests/technical debt or any such thing. It was really fun.

I ended up with a runner’s up award for the sloth site, the winner was my very talented colleague James and his ‘Potato Simulator 2015‘.

Here’s the six sites I created in a week:

pizzagenerator
Pizza Generator: randomly generate a succulent pizza (with bonus exotic mode)
Drink Tea Every Day: Australian Tea Tally
Drink Tea Every Day: Australian Tea Tally
