@matthewvandyke080Today I have officially reached 365 days of posting to my scrapbook. I started during Summer of Making last year just as something to do, but after the summer I kept up with it to keep myself accountable. If you go back you can see all my projects and updates from them that I have done since last year such as: Students Who Code, my portfolio, myDash, BrainDUMP, esports website, running Secret Santa, and so much more! Thank you to everyone who has followed along and thanks to @sampoder and @matthew for creating scrapbook! So now that 365 is done.....whats next?
@avi0Learning about the basics of TensorFlow :tensorflow: to do machine learning! did you know that Google Colab has an easter egg where you can get corgis and kitties to walk across the top of the webpage? They also wear halloween costumes 🎃 and santa hats on Christmas 🎅
@matthewvandyke080Ended hack club secret santa today after a bunch of fun, and got an analytics graph to work today!
@matthewvandyke080Responded to a lot today about secret Santa and planned out some new features for my side project!
@matthewvandyke080Got some more work done on my side project today. And most importantly sent out over 30+ dms to secret Santa members and made a fun update on the channel
@matthewvandyke080Continued the react 2025 course, started dev on my new project(don't mind how everything is not aligned yet), and created the plan for people who don't send gifts for secret santa(stay tuned)
@sampoder0This Christmas I got a Jedi Challenges AR Headset from Santa (thanks Santa!). I really like the game, but I wanted to be able to put custom applications on to it!
So I made Holocron :jediparrot: which is a React component that makes doing so super duper easy. It helps you size the window correctly and position the screen etc. It was my first time making a React component and I found the publishing quite difficult but I worked it out well: www.npmjs.com/package/@sampoder/holocron
I then built a demo app that shows the status of your Vercel deployments on your headset. It uses SWR and react-reveal to make it feel buttery smooth!
I also built one that implements the Slack events component on the Hack Club Website (here) on to it (sadly I ran out of time to put this in the demo vid but there are pics attached!
Here's the GitHub project for the package: github.com/sampoder/holocron.
And here's the demo video which I submitted to MLH's weekly hackathon...... and guess what?? Somehow, I won Best Overall Hardware Hack so I now get a free kit from ironically DigiKey (you still owe me money, no escaping) but my react component won best hardware hack lol!
@riley33chou0couldnt find my phone to take a proper pic so heres a webcam snapshot of my secret santa gift!
@matthewvandyke080Worked on secret santa stuff today and brainstormed some more for my new project
