@J_cordz7+Today I had a good day! There's not much coding updates but I'm going back to the city 🏙️ next week. Here's another awesome space 🌌 image and a screenshot of my previous #scrapbook post because it didn't correctly load last time. For my future projects, I plan to work on my GitHub Readme again! :github::quad_parrot:
@sampoder0🚢 Last week, my Hack Club ran ⚡Maker Week⚡. Which put simply was Hack Club for an entire week! We had a Discovery Zone on Monday morning (a series of generative art / visual displays), then every lunchtime we ran a workshop (such as the Kahoot & Kaboom workshops as well as a special science workshop) and to wrap it all up we had an evening hackathon called Maker Night. It was a ton of fun and hopefully we attracted some awesome new Hack Club members!
@jessicard0Every new assembly language I learn works approximately the same way, but somehow every time I see code for one I haven’t used yet I get totally intimidated lmao :flushded:
Today I worked on fully understanding @belle’s hello world 6502 example (which is awesome!!), and adding some clarifying comments to help people like me understand what’s going on!
@ced0shaking my head while looking at a software rasterized quad in zig
not following a tutorial or anything, just seeing how much I can do with the vector math I already know
I think calling @sin or @cos means your executable gets linked to the CRT which adds 60kb to my executable; if I can find a pure zig implementation of cos/sin, I can knock the executable size back down to ~4kb
I also think the quad grows in size a little bit when it's rotated because my tangent and normal aren't actually perpendicular 😳
ideally instead of setting the entire tangent vector, I could just set the "angle" and have my quad be an axis + angle combo,
but I'm not sure what the vector math looks like for that. I know if I have two perpendicular vectors I can get a third orthonormal basis using the cross product, but I'm not sure how to go from one perpendicular vector to 2 short of quaternions or rotation matrices (surely there's an easier way?)@KaraMassie-U032A2PMSE90@kognise introduced me to google's new text-to-image diffusion-based generator, imagen , so A CAT got a new 'fit.
And here's the repo! :github::pullrequest:github.com/J-cordz/Acoustic-Galaxy:parrotdad:
I did it a few days ago as you can see it on my Scrapbook posts, but I was told to ship this as well! This features a custom background with a texture, gradients, the application of elements like :before and :after , some cool borders and a great animation! From this I learned how to get better at design and with CSS.
To all of this I'm attaching some pictures 📸 of the projects and the links! 🔗 🌐
That's all for today, feel free to ⭐ any of the projects or follow me if you like and see y'all later with the next Ship!! Wahoo!
@Andrew0I got my iPhone 12 mini today, so far it's awesome. Here is a pic I took and my home screen
@rithul1An addition to my wallpaper collection, the desktop version!
@J_cordz7+Today starts May! And that means my birthday 🍰 🎂 is in two weeks! :parrotdad::tw_spiral_calendar_pad: Here's as well a picture of a plant 🌱 I took today and a very awesome picture of my new Scrapbook CSS Stylesheet! :css: This is the most complex design I've done for it: It includes a custom background with a texture, gradients, special sized borders with a cool :cooll-dino: red color #EC2F3A I did with the hexadecimal value, and great Pseudo-elements like :before and :after! Also thanks to the #scrapbook Prisma/Postgres:prisma::postgres: database I learned that I have a 210 days streak! And speaking again on this, here's my Scrapbook website and the GitHub :github:Gist! Feel free to star ⭐ it if you like it!
@meridi0Went to a CubeSat 🛰️ conference today, got to meet awesome people and check out their hardware! NASA was handing out some really pretty posters and swag as well, picked a lot of those up
@belle0Hey Fwens :hyper-dino-wave:
Today was pretty awesome!! The late nights are finally catching up to me so today after school, I fell asleep on the couch haha :)) Did not work on any projects today but I continued on with active recall prep for my business exam! Also, my school celebrated earth day by making all of us do some sort of self-written song/dance number and umm, it was really funny but really embarrassing too haha! Hope you have an amazing day!
(i really like this song!!! also, i find it really cool that more pop songs are releasing mandarin versions)
@belle0hey fwens :hyper-dino-wave:
hope your week is going well!! today my school had an optional wellbeing day for "exam students" where we had yoga, hiking, breathing exercises sessions etc. and it was pretty awesome!! the most interesting thing i learned was how to let go of thoughts that are unproductive... like if i'm working on smth and suddenly start worrying about another thing, that doesn't do me any good so i can just let that thought go. also, worked on updating the hack club team page today and did some business exam prep by doing active recall of different units!
(umm not sure what photo to add so here's a ss of this week's notion to do list page, i make a different cover each week and this week i felt like i needed some peace and magic)
@belle0Hey Fwens :hyper-dino-wave:
Today was pretty awesome!! Didn't get as much studying done but i got to hangout w/ my friends and play volleyball (had a free period so went to the gym to play around w/ the volleyball and even though i didn't ask, the pe teacher offered to train me which made it more fun). Also, worked on updating an existing web project (took longer than expected). ANDDDD i finally listened to alec benjamin's new album... so good!!! Hope you have a great day :)
(look at this album cover adfhkjsdhfs and the incohesiveness of this scrapbook represents my current mental state :flushded:)
@belle0hey fwens :hyper-dino-wave:
i finally finished the first part of my econ exam prep(!!!)...now it's onto practice :)) also, worked on documentation for toriel :blobattention: – this was my first time making a slightly large change to the documentation of a project and it was surprisingly hard :flushded:. i really enjoyed it tho and it forced me to become a lot more comfortable w/ markdown which is a cool skill to now have hehe. hope y'all have an awesome day!!!
@belle0hey fwens :hyper-dino-wave:
today i worked on more econ prep (my favourite part was learning about the eu in context of a monetary union, customs union, and common market like who knew the eu had soo many layers). also, semi stalked wellesley college forums and the ENTIRE site :flushded:. didn't really code much today and i'm getting more stressed about the fact that i have exams soon :(( hope y'all have an awesome day and happy easter to anyone that celebrates 🥚!!
(here's a random map of the eu lol also)
@J_cordz7+Besides my journey of today 🚌 🛬 🌴 I also opened my first ever GitHub :github: Issue on the GitHub Docs Repo! :quad_parrot: There's a typo on the Spanish Translation of a docs page, and because they don't allow yet pull requests :pullrequest: for translations I opened an issue so it can get check and fix! I hope everything goes alright and it gets corrected, which would be awesome because that would be too my first successful code contribution outside of Hack Club, on which I look forward as well to keep helping more on the future! :hack-club::merge:
@J_cordz7+Today I continued working on my website with @caleb's help! :w00w00: I made a navigation bar with CSS :css: and flexbox and continued writing the content! I also had an awesome talk with @JackyZhao about Digital gardens and other kind of tools! 🪴 Lastly, tomorrow I have an Organic Chemistry exam about functional groups! 🧪 Here's an image of some gigant Selenite crystals on Naica's Cave on México. :mexicoparrot: Would be cool to work on a Geology Project! 🪨
@J_cordz7+Today I had an awesome school presentation on Biomedicine Engineering! 🧪 It was a very cool event, there were 3D Printers, robots 🤖 that use Python :python: , prosthesis models that use biological electrical 🔌 signals to work and many more things! I could take a few pictures that I'll try to updated and share this next days. I also had Chemistry ⚗️ lab where we did a lot of cool experiments on Amines! And because the biomedicine talks and presentations ended a bit late, I went walking back to my home, here's some very nice pictures of my city! 🌆 🏙️
@J_cordz7+Fourth and last Scrapbook Post of the day! 4️⃣ 🎉 Today I had a very interesting talk with @caleb! He helped me to get a better understanding on how some coding things can be achieved, like how to add scroll to a website, how to add different background colors on the same page, about viewport height vh relative unit and more awesome things! We used CodePen, which it's a very awesome and useful app! :codepen:
@J_cordz7+Third 3️⃣ Update of the day 🎉! I will be using club-scraps to share a #scrapbook link without posting on the Slack :slack: ! This is a super cool feature for clubs :hack-club: who have community members that aren’t active here, but want to share their work with everyone! I also did a better design on the :toitle: Procedural Art Workshop! And designed this awesome 🐙 :tw_octopus: Octopus -Turtle 🐢 :tw_turtle: emoji based on Google’s :google: stickers! Here it is: :octo-turtle::octo-turtle::octo-turtle:
@J_cordz7+Today's Twosday! A very interesting palindromic number day, also today I learned more on what's an API and how does it works! Which is a very useful CS topic, in addition to this, I am looking into a remote desktop app to access my mac on other devices, this will help me when I have to code on something remotely!
So I might work as well with this Backend Course by freeCodeCamp to learn more on this aspect of Web Development but I want to be better at Front End before moving to something else! :freecodecamp-logo:
@HenryBass-U02KEJ8T6D80I hopefully won't be coding or active much for the next 8 days, because I'm going away over break. Honestly don't mind much lmao, I need to chill (I will miss my green square streak) gonna to learn how to dive and stuff, it's going to be awesome. Also, planning on messing around with neural nets and stuff. Sadly won't get much of a chance to try out my logic gates. Also there's an image of all the items I've added to my simulator in the last 2 weeks, this is the longest i've coded consecutively, and the most fun I've ever had doing so
far more importantly added the long needed pause button to my sim
@J_cordz7+Today I had a normal school day, my new internet is getting setup so I will be able to work on more things online soon, I also did an awesome Biology Diagram on today's Bio class and took a city landscape picture! 🌆
@HenryBass-U02KEJ8T6D80woo scrapbook time alr! Working on a few projects
• Remaking my trashy portfolio, with less everything (I swear to fucking god why can't scroll snap work)
• messing around with circuits. Ordered a bunch of this little chips (image attached), and combined with XOR I'm hoping to make a simple adder. (Not as impressive when there are people on this slack designing whole CPUs)
• Messing around with Noita-style falling sand sim, and resisting the urge to try that game
• The most retarded Linux distro idea
Also, Vitalik AMA was awesome! Below I've attached some of the interesting comments from the Vitalik AMA youtube live stream (hmm)
@J_cordz7+Today I got some HNS to get my TLD Domain thanks to @zfogg! I also continued working on setting up my coding environment, and finally, my scrapbook HeatMap is showing the correct posts! It's been awesome to share my work daily, I also created my first hack club's channel on the slack, it's #wikipedia! :wikipedia:
@J_cordz7+Did a bit of night hackin' working on my freeCodeCamp web dev course while listening to the site Code Radio Station, and finally, I surpassed my initial progress that I had previously made my last time on the course, so this content I answered today is new and have never seen it before! Looking forward to make more progress and see awesome new things on it!
@J_cordz7+Today I did a lot of homework and studied for my biology final exam, so there isn't anything about programming today, instead here's an awesome wallpaper a Hack Club friend shared today, it's a Gruvbox color scheme variant of the wallpaper I am using on my Macbook setup! For tomorrow, I hope to be able to continue working either on my website or in another of the club's workshops.
It's not the best, but it's an awesome progress in my coding journey.
My own personal website and portfolio is still in dev, and there's nothing to share about it yet because I still have to figure out the total tools I will use on it, so today's workshops are Orpheus Hack Club Website which needs some improvement and Splatter Paint. Also, my other project about GitHub that I was also talking about in my scrapbook is finally setting up an organization for my Science Club and Hack Club and redesigning my high school website which will be a great project to test my abilities! And finally, today I started researching some Raycast extensions, so most likely I won't see my apps dock that often.
@<vedha>0hosted a workshop for vivid hacks!! everyone ended up creating their own website. it was an awesome experience!
@J_cordz7+I had planned for today to draw my Dino for Hack Club GitHub, but instead of this, I worked on my Digital Garden Project and started learning different ways to index my Obsidian vault with notes into a garden database, also I'm almost ready to ship the fist version of my Personal Website, and most likely I will be hosting it with the help of Repl.it where I'm also hosting my workshop projects, and then move on to better alternatives with improved versions.
In other things, I forgot to mention some days ago than my high school is finally at the Hack Club map and I'm happy to be a club leader and get to work at my club and create awesome things!
@philipstudentemail0We celebrated Memphis HackClub’s first birthday today and launched merch to find out HC bank account! It has been an amazing year with so many awesome experiences. After a year, we have quite a few members, but more importantly I have seen growth in out hackclubbers both in intellect and character and excited to lead this club until summer!!! memphishack.com@J_cordz7+Today I had my Hack Club Leader call and it went fantastic! And I'm happy to say that now I'm a Hack Club Leader!
Hope to make awesome things at my high school club where everyone will learn and have a great time.
In other things, I did some major changes to my Github account as I had planned and tomorrow I will be applying for the GitHub Student Developer Pack, that will provides me with tools that will be useful in my journey to learn how to program.
@ZaynB0Had an AWESOME door decorating night! (Though I had literally no clue this even happened until I saw it lol)
@pranav0Excited for all the awesome talks at Next.js Conf
Wanted a super chill project to work on over the weekend so I made verpi, a program to show the status of your vercel deployments on a small light strip! Alongside a super clean codebase it also has this nifty little python script to compile a binary on the pi without changing your local environment one bit! Below is a quick demo:
github.com/gleich/verpi@JinmayJhaveri0Made it to awesome-hackclub
@JinmayJhaveri0My github readme stat can do this. Choose from a wide range of themes and give 5 repos. It will analyze them and generate a link of the most used tech and tooling and simply put that in readme. It prevents your readme to be bloated by adding technology icons/badges on your own. github.com/Borrus-sudo/awesome-stack (p.s. it will take me some time to upload image in readme cause github rate limited me. Ughh)
