SUPER late, but I finished my game theory course! I followed a lot of people on github today too!
Today was quite interesting, I got to see a lot of thoughtful discussions. Anyways, here’s the highlight of my day! I’m finally in the HackClub github org!! :))
I've been super unproductive today, so here's this throwback...
I don’t have anything really special to share today, so here’s this short video! It was my small ardunio project from my mentorship last year. Essentially, the arduino has a microphone and after the sound reaches a certain level the lights are going to blink. A really simple project, but not too bad for a first one. Today was a really busy day, I woke up at 6:30 and I was on 6 different zoom/webex meetings. I don't really have anything memorable to share, so here's a photo of my friend's dog.
messages are out of order, but I will be eagerly awaiting my "fuck it ship it" hack club stickers!
I had a pretty unproductive day today, I literally just did game theory the entire day. Funny story, our entire team's repo with our submission to the hackathon literally disappeared into thin air for a couple of hours and its back now but the github pages doesn't work... yet...
Anyways, I send my dad coding memes sometimes — here's my favorite meme I've ever sent to him.
Back on my econ grind! Didn't really do much again today. I feel like I kinda lost my motivation and momentum lmao. My extra long summer break is coming to and end, and part of me doesn't want it to end — there's still so many things I need to complete.
After a weeklong break, I'm back to my unhealthy obsession with economics😬. Didn't really do much today. I followed a lot of people on github. I'll probably be going through my github and adding tags/editing descriptions for my repos, and maybe editing some old readme's.
@swarnya246 , ana, natalie, and I submitted our project to our hackathon! Our project literally did a total 180 from where we started, but we still got it done! I'm so proud of our team. Here's some gifs from our project. Also, I broke my own personal record for the most contributions on GitHub in one day! (41 contributions 😳)
Another update to the GitHub readme, but this time with (too many?) icons! I just need to find a black hackclub one now...
Woohoo! Another great HackClub AMA, this time with Tommy DeVoss. I got to see not one, not two, BUT THREE DOGS!
🚀Here's how our hackathon website is going right now. I might need to start learning PHP and MySQLi soon though... 😬
it's kayley learns react time! I started on the react tic tac toe tutorial yesterday night, and I'm starting to get the hang of it, although I'm still confused with all of the brackets and where all the semicolons go. Side note: react has amazing documentation. Anyways, I told my BBG WAVE advisor that I was learning react and he commented all over my code with suggestions and remarks on how to improve the code. I have the best mentor ever. Here's a screenshot of his code and a demo of my program.
I updated my github profile with the readme! I sure hope the code works 🤷♀️
I know a lot of people have this badge, but it feels special knowing that in 1000 years, if civilization gets wiped out, at least my descendants will be able to recreate my arduino project. 🥺 Also, as @blucashbaugh mentioned, my code is physically buried under a bunch of permafrost at the North Pole. Pretty fucking cool, imo.
Today was the last day of SIP, and I've made so many memories and met so many amazing people over the past two weeks. Me and Kiana made a website for our final project (kayleyseow.github.io/SHEQUALITY), and presented it to Twitter partners today (I even had an amazing convo with Ms. Brand about bro culture in the workplace). Alas, virtual SIP isn't the same thing as a real one at Twitter, but I wouldn't give it up for the world.
spent two hours figuring out why the parallax on my website wasn't working today.
Yay! A bit more game theory!
I've been super nervous the entire day, but today was pretty great! I started reading the JDBC documentation (ew), attended a mentorship panel with Twitter, and I started my Game Theory course! I've always wanted to go in depth on this topic, and I'm starting to see how this economic theory relates to other fields like computer science and even politics as well.
I found these c/c++ books lying around my house—turns out they’re 30+ years old! Super excited to start reading these. :c:
woohoo I finally finished my SQL course! I’ll be combining java and SQL in a project now, let's see how that turns out.
I made this to understand SQL inner joins 🙂
SQL joins are so annoying ahhhh
Dylan in the middle of this rap lol... anyways, +1 to the tabs team
I was just on a call with Jack Dorsey! He's literally the chillest guy I've ever met. I got to ask him about his biggest regret, and I learned so much! I'm literally on cloud 9 right now.
