YAY, Had a meet with the amazing @Holly for my club " Phoenix Hacks", and Had an amazing time, She helped me set up my club. Taught me about HC resources I can use for the development, and showed me the beautiful sunset pictures from (HQ) Vermont!!:beatsaber:
#w-of-the-day day 134 Today was a fun day. I basically took every mode of public transport touring dubai. Did absolutely nothing productive but had a lot fun PS: the first picture is me in front of the worlds largest Ferris wheel. itโ€™s been closed for a full year and still no ETA to when it will reopen
Day 8 of WHW #hardware-party, I had to head out early because we had to go to our village :villager: for EID๐Ÿ’ซ . So, I woke up really early and did some wiring and assembled the bldc motor & tested the net thrust component, I got some reading around 1.1kg in net force, and then headed out. Rest of day was packed with EID preparation and i am awaiting tomorrow :akkoshrug: eagerly. Well, that was it for today! I'll see you all tomorrow! Bye, Goodnight! PS: After being yelled at by my father for driving:driftt: , (In his own words) "weirdly" :weirddude: i tried some cool art filters and edited some pictures.
Sprig GO Update! Worked on rendering. Picture of package I got from HC
Wanted to get this flower's picture since a long time but I am too lazy to step out of my home
Shipped the uil study tool on Vercel today at uil-study-tool.vercel.app (Github at github.com/Sarthak-Dayal/uil-study-tool)! There are still some optimizations I can potentially make to the model, but it works well for my current intended purpose of making my daily science UIL studying more fun. Also, began part 2 of the fast.ai course today so I can potentially build up to making an AI image upscaler to dive deeper into AI as I improve the quality of some of my profile pictures.
using my old camera after a long time
Flowersssss (I had this in my gallery, I am laxy to go out and click new pictures + touching grass is toxic to gamers)
This is Day #2 of my Sprig Adventure! Today I completed a few sprites that need rework so that's why I didn't upload a picture yet. Also it is day 2 of learning Brazilian Portuguese on Duolingo. Recommended of the one and only @Lucas and @luanderfarias!
(picture from #development-of-things-and-stuff) made some more progress on my pen holder design, its very sloppy but I rushed since I forgot to take my medication this morning and slept until 5pm : (
WHW day +6: after hours struggling with wifi connection, I have succeeded to get on hack club slack and make a post on the scrapbook. Here is what I did during my week without internet: โ€ข print time on serial monitor thanks to the RTC library that I've already install (i have also displayed them on my lcd screen but i forgot to take pictures) โ€ข read some books about C programming language to code my arduino better (don't have C++ books but it was the best I got without internet ๐Ÿฅฒ) this week I went finish my holidays to the mountains ... but I forgot to take my arduino ๐Ÿ˜ญ no progress this week sorry if my project take a long time to get finished (I think i'll not be able to continue during school)
Didn't do much today but I did plan to calibrate my 3d printer further so that the case fits better than before. The picture is just everything I've printed for the project including the one failed case.
Tried capturing the pictures of Moon and Venus.
It's already the end of the 8th day of #hardware-party / Winter Hardware Wonderland! Time passes so fast :ultrafastparrot: :winter-hardware-wonderland: Today was an important software day! ~~~ Basic Project Description ~~~ Plant Location Chooser is a project that helps you choose the right place to plant your flowers. This is calculated via the Humidity, Temperature, etc. After a basic summary let's jump into today's software focused changes! :ultrafastparrot: ~~~ Changelog ~~ 1๏ธโƒฃ Fixed a lot of bad data with the BME280 sensor. That was definitely annoying, the issue was that some of the contacts weren't touching. :facepalm: 2๏ธโƒฃ Arduino now sends the results back, if the location is found to be unsuitable, then it also send the sensors data 3๏ธโƒฃ The app now notifies the user on a bluetooth response. ~~~ The Plan of the Near Future ๐Ÿค– ~~~ Sync both the arduino and flutter codebases together and merge them in the repo ( It currently isn't one .. ) and maybe install the Soil Moisture sensor, will see about that tho. The picture is the current build_
Day 4,5,6,7 - We just got back from Florida today so we didn't really do much on days 4, 5, and 6, although we did do a bit of some visualization of how some of the mechanisms work in a more specific way. Today we designed and printed a bracket that perfectly lined up the gears that we printed so far. (Image foreground) We also modeled our wheels. We don't have enough time to print those today, but you can see a hazy picture of the 3D model in the background. I might end up printing one wheel overnight and check it out in the morning.
as a very non-techy intro to hardware, i found a broken digital film camera in the garage and fiddled around with it for a bit until i got it to work (pretty much opened it up, cleaned everything, put it back together lol). it works great and i got some awesome pictures from skiing! ๐ŸŽฟ gonna post some more pics on #karolina-is-swag too once i process them!
day 4 of WHW -> forgot to post but programmed my LEDS and the clock thingy ! (first picture) + day 5 of WHW -> reprogrammed the LEDS + connected my segment display to the clock !!!!
The end of the fourth day of #hardware-party / Winter Hardware Wonderland! :winter-hardware-wonderland: Time does pass fast! Today was as expected a very good day for me and of course the project. ~~~ Basic Project Description ~~~ Plant Location Chooser is a project that helps you choose the right place to plant your flowers. This is calculated via the Humidity, Temperature, etc. After a basic summary let's jump into today's changes! :ultrafastparrot: ~~~ Changelog ~~~ 1๏ธโƒฃ Added / Refactored the Humidity scale! 2๏ธโƒฃ Refactored the arduino codebase for cleaner and more maintainable code. 3๏ธโƒฃ Created the android app with Flutter, that was a joy! Just got to add bluetooth aka the most basic feature. Sneak peek is attached! 4๏ธโƒฃ Rearranged the cables for easier and more maintainable breadboard. Picture attached! ~~~ The Plan of the Future๐Ÿค– ~~~ Tomorrow is going to be an exciting day with lots of things! Firstly the android app will finally have Bluetooth support! :ultrafastparrot: And the light sensor might also be installed.
day 3 of winter wonderland, mainly just setup my system for developing my board. used github.com/espressif/esp-idf for this. don't have any images really so here is a picture of my board :salute:
Winter Wonderland - Day 4/10! (#hardware-party) I'm super tired today, so I'm going to keep this update short with bullet points: Progress: โ€ข Got motor mounting plate made on router! โ€ข Received last connector I needed to hookup battery to speed controller โ€ข Soldered different connector types to wire โ€ข Made first basic configuration for speed controller (completely untested) Next Steps: โ€ข 3D print motor mount slider block โ€ข 3D print pulley โ€ข Assemble all major components to bike โ€ข Wire everything (a lot of things!) โ€ข Cable management โ€ข Test the esc configuration I thought of another addition to the project as well. It would be nice to have a small bike computer with gps and a high contrast e-ink style display. This is definitely not going to be possible in these 10 days, but it's another thing to do after the base bike is done! As always, here's the CAD for reference, and I'm open to suggestions! (The pictures will be better tomorrow I promise)
The end of the third day of #hardware-party / Winter Hardware Wonderland! :winter-hardware-wonderland: Today was a somewhat big day for my Project aka Plant Location Chooser. ~~~ Basic Project Description ~~~ Plant Location Chooser is a project that helps you choose the right place to plant your flowers. This is calculated via the Humidity, Temperature, etc. ~~~ Changelog ~~~ 1๏ธโƒฃ Fixed the HM10 bluetooth module for what it seems the fifth time. Today it was having trouble registering AT commands and it was driving me crazy lol. 2๏ธโƒฃ I also added an HM10 Dev Mod for contacting the HM10 module via Serial. 3๏ธโƒฃ After a long time, the BME280 module was successful installed, after I almost bent the pins :(. 4๏ธโƒฃ A temperature option with a range has officially been implemented! ~~~ Tomorrow Plan ~~~ Tomorrow I plan to start working on the official android app using Flutter! I am so excited lol. As usual here is a picture of the board
Yeah, sorry pictures look a mess. But today is my day two for #hardware-party, although I could not work on my project has one important part is missing. I was just doing small basic LED. Hope tmrw I won't be too busy so I can do more things. But fun day it was indeed :ultrafastparrot:
โ„๏ธ WHW Day 1/10 It was storming this morning so I got the joy of rushing downstairs to start waterproofing! I had much panics. After that, I had school. When I got home, I spent time updating sensor accuracy and adding a status LED. All in all, I also got a lot of valuable weather data to work in making observations with! Tomorrow's Agenda โ€ข Start on real enclosure โ€ข Work on power sourcing โ€ข Deploy Video server โ€ข Join a Sprint ๐Ÿ’จ Picture alt text: A picture of the night sky that finished off as clear. It looks like I won't need to worry about the waterproofing tomorrow!
โ„๏ธ WHW Day 1/10 Oh my god this took forever! 3 hours spent lubing and filming switches. Gonna suffer on econ tomorrow though. Ran into some issues with the fit - the films were a tiny bit too thick so I had to file down the clips. It took forever. I also set the print for the stencil to run tonight - hopefully it all goes well so I can cut the foams out on Thursday! Tomorrow's Agenda โ€ข Solder on the hotswap sockets โ€ข Test each socket with a multimeter Picture: The product of my suffering - 50 lubed switches.
I tried to install libraries for the pi display. After rebooting it wonโ€™t connect to any displayโ€ฆ Iโ€™ll have to edit that in the sd card itself. More to come! Picture of it not working:
Today I updated the image file in the hackclub/global repo to use the main Assemble picture! Also I did the last commit to my Splatter Paint project and published my first github release, with this finished, I definitely need to start something new. :roo-yay:
#w-of-the-day day 36 didnt right a single bit of code today, but made some educational progress (studies and hw). anyway here's a picture of jeff from roblox doors saying hi
Bought a new domain using the hcb perk, also spotted a fibre install up the road, its hopefully coming to my house. have a picture of blahaj swimming around
Went to see Blood Brothers, and cried in confusion trying to use bank api's. Had a debate w mum on why she should sign a contract for bank. And put up this cool looking picture
I don't have a picture for this (yet) but tonight I was elected head projectionist! Enjoy this picture of our two DP70s, the 60 year old film projectors that are now my responsiblity
finally setup a mail server and it was hell. Got some divine intervention from Jesus though, who apparently works for oracle support. Who would have thought? Also, hereโ€™s a random picture of a cute dragon plush I have just because.
Today I selected the Dalle-2 images I'll use for the profile picture workshop! I generated them with the app some time ago. I also finished a V1 version of the code, but it stopped working because some errors on the package.json file :npm: . Also I made my own .gitignore file for this project!
did some winter PR's, Bought a new game and just watched netflix lol, have a picture of wilow
cat pictures
gathering inspiration for designing cool new stuff :eyes_shaking:, remaking my website yet again, running a new vanilla minecraft server (it's that time of the year again!) and [not in picture] studying for a small cs test tomorrow involving logic gates and algebra (? idk how that got into cs, we were doing just fine dealing with it literally everywhere else). can't wait for the weekend!
Drawing concept art for my game, Just very rough, and I used midjourney to kinda picture what I want, so I have attached my current progress and midjourney output here
Everything for my winter wonderland project is here! :winter-hardware-wonderland: I've also added an annotated picture. Here's my PR: github.com/hackclub/winter/pull/18 Thank you to @belle for reviewing my PR, @MelanieSmith and @DaisyReyes-U046V3EK56W for help with bank and a huge shoutout to everyone working on everything surrounding the grant! Looking forward to building this drone :tw_airplane:
2 weeks to go till Epoch, and here's the story of this sticker. It all started a few months ago when genius minds from all over the world decided to brainstorm ideas for stickers they'd like at Epoch. We decided we wanted stickers with local Delhi references for advanced humour. And one such idea was to make a sticker that says Horn Ok Please, with Epoch-ish Hack Club elements in there. For context, Horn Ok Please is written on the back of trucks and lorries prominently seen in North India (in South India, we just have Sound Horn) to alert drivers of vehicles approaching from behind to sound their horns if they wish to overtake, in a country like India where honking is the primary source of communication between you and the other vehicles on the road. Part of the idea was also to make it look like Horn Ok Please was written on the back of a truck. I said, "OK OK LMAOOO WE'RE MAKING A STICKER OUT OF THIS". Now I'm not exactly the most productive and efficient person out there, I thrive on deadlines. I would occasionally just visit the Figma file, do random stuff and close my tabs while I did not have exams, homework or both. Normally I'd be able to complete stuff while "occasionally" visiting but this one was a bit hard. There weren't many reference images I could find, other than a photo directly from the Wikipedia page. I somehow also found the same image from a frontal angle which helped me trace out the letters and create "Horn Ok Please" as an SVG (my Figma Pen Tool skills are unrivalled, they talk about my curves). I also needed some random art related to India, like peacocks and the Taj Mahal, so what I did was take photos from unsplash.com, remove their background and run them through svgco.de (WHICH IS A GOD SENT BTW, credit to @OjasSomethin' for pointing this wonderful tool out) to give them a painted and vector-y look. I quickly combined them together but I realized it didn't have the same back-of-the-truck feeling and other people were quick to point that out. @deven then points out that I should do "Hack Ok Please" ("cos the H matches") and a few days later, there's a better reference picture of a Horn Ok Please in #design. In the thread where the image was posted, there was a lot of talk about getting the text bevels and shadows right along with identifying a similar font, which @sarthak narrowed down to a font called Syne, which fortunately was available on Google Fonts and I had it downloaded in no time. I decided to start with the background, and I wanted it to look realistic as possible. The question is, how do you make wooden planks in Figma? Sure, I could draw lines, and make it look realistic in a vector art sense but I wanted the right colour and texture. Well, what if I just placed a picture of wooden planks? That is exactly what I did, and it's called textures. A visit to textures.com gave me some quality seamless textures of wooden planks, and to make it pink I added a separate colour layer and decreased the opacity of the colour layer (I slightly colour-corrected the plank textures for it to be visible while still having the desired shade of pink). I also wanted the grooves (or gaps, whatever you call them) between the planks to affect the surrounding elements as if all the designed elements were actually painted on wooden planks. I did this by manually drawing out groove lines using the good ol' Pen Tool and giving it a slight drop shadow. The text. "Hack Ok Please!!". It needed bevels. Neither does Figma have an option for bevels nor could I find a plugin that gives bevels to text. Having lost all hope, I wandered around on YouTube hoping some Indian tech guy could help me out when an unexpected ally rose to the occasion: pixlr.com/e. They could make bevels out of text input and export it into PNG - that was more than enough for me. I dragged the export across the browser and into Figma and used a freemium plugin called Image Tracer which I thought had already been exhausted of its 5 free trials but apparently not. I got an SVG, got box shadows using a wonderful plugin called oblique and added that stuff on top of the wood. Only the decorations remained. I'm not gonna lie, I didn't have much creativity in this area. The corners of my reference image had floral-like colourful designs and I wasn't really sure about manually tracing it using the Pen Tool. The floral-like design reminded me of something I used to do with my mom when I was a kid, where basically I'd take an A4-sized paper, fold the paper in half, put drops of acrylic paint of different colours on the crease of the paper and fold it again to create something that looked like a butterfly. I thought that if I could do something like that with the right colours, I could take a good picture with my phone, remove its background, change its colours a bit and use it in my design. After begging my sister to help me (spoiler alert: she did not), I decided to steal my sister's paint (she's not on Hack Club, so she won't find out) and perform the sacred method of "squish painting". Long story short, it did not come out like I expected it to, it was too narrow and too green for my liking. (I wanted to take a picture of the result I got for the sake of this scrapbook post, but the paint stuck to each other and now I can't unfold the paper and tearing it doesn't seem like a good idea.) At this point, I decided to give up on everything else and trust the mighty Pen. By listening to the Doom OST theme song and Cocomelon songs on a loop, I traced out the basic lines of the floral designs and just randomly coloured them with every main colour I could find. By now, I was too lazy and uncreative to create my own assets, so I just screenshotted the flower thingy at the bottom of the reference image and then modified the colours a bit so that it matches the background colour of the sticker. Combine this with some smooth curves and spheres, and we have our decorations. To make it even more realistic, I got some grime and brush stroke textures from textures.com, removed their backgrounds, reduced the highlights a bit, increased the shadows a lot, halved the opacities and added the corners of the sticker. Oh and I almost forgot, there's a slight amount of noise at the very top to give it a slightly dirty/realistic feeling, using the Noise plugin. Adding noise textures to my designs is a reflex action at this point.
Ran two Hour of Code sessions to the grade 7s and 8s students at my school with my school's CS department students! Super awesome, but unfortunately I don't have any pictures of it. Here's a generic screenshot. Thanks to the teachers that organized it! :)
hey everyone! here's my update for day 8 of #10-days-in-public! sadly, i didn't have much time to work on grooovy today since i was up in central london, but i did do a tiny bit of work on it in cs club after school! (also, here's a picture i took of st paul's cathedral!)
#10-days-in-public 5/10 no pretty picture, unless you count this cursor theme we just switched to (image credit: wo2ni) - though it was indeed a very pretty day! we solved the first part of today's Advent of Code puzzle, but not the second, with a really big method chain. beyond that, there were some minor changes to Clover. we'll be working on making it make more sense next, and hopefully we'll have a couple of really nice-looking commands by the end of the 10 days! -R
#10-days-in-public 4/10 that "faster language" idea took a step forward today! look, it's called Clover, and it can make up half a command! we actually skipped the Advent of Code puzzle to work on this logic. we'll be busy touching grass tomorrow, so maybe we'll try to find something pretty to take a picture of. -X
day three of #10-days-in-public<#C045S4393CY aka #zachathon<#C04D6JA0W73 got DocuSign set up for collecting signatures from attendees at #epoch-vt<#C04BX4F6HGE, received the $500 hackathon grant, and did a dummy print of our poster, designed by @MasonMeirs-U03V4686P9N! attached is a picture of our project planner; I'm really happy with how much progress we've made so far!
didn't get a chance to work on anything today so here's a picture of some show from last week or so
Art created using DALL-E 2 inspired by @maggie's profile picture. Took so many attempts to get the right one.
A few hours ago, I hosted a workshop about CSRF at CPBR14 Here are some pictures:
