@sampoder4Assembling Assemble (:scrappy:-edition) #1: Spent the weekend tying up loose ends on the logistics front, writing more code for Scrapbook @ Assemble (name suggestions, please!) & preparing the ceremonies. Most importantly, however, @deven, @benjamin & @kunalbotla are in town so we went around exploring Vermont! It was lovely to talk about the hackathon with everyone (alongside other, slighly less stressful topics) and to get geared up for a jam-packed week.
@heyrajan0finishing touches on the new hack club apply page! shipping soon :hyper-dino-wave:
@zrl0got a new computer today! so glad to finally have more than 8gb of ram. setting up a nixos development VM on the mac, so i can program in hack club codebases from my laptop now! following calcagno.blog/m1dev
@AraizaSingh-U03Q06DS8H27+It was a nice day so I went outside and decoded a QR code by hand(I only used an ascii lookup table bc I haven't memorized it well enough lol) As you can see the message was Hello :)
@Ishan1Here’s a demo of a game I made in Sprig. I started yesterday afternoon and this is what I have right now. My computer actually crashed yesterday and deleted like all the art so I had to redo that lol. I initially wanted to make a flight sim but I ended up simulating gravity (even though this is supposed to be like a tile-based map kind of game engine) and things just naturally happened from there. Thanks to @ced for all the bug fixing ~and no thanks to ced for all the crummy error messages sprig gives you~ :angryeyes:. Also thanks to Leo and Kara. 10/10 would recommend you try out sprig.hackclub.dev. I don’t often post here but someone told me I should. Here’s a link to the game as it is now: sprig.hackclub.dev/?id=69498e0157d29c9dafa168e998e82712. See if you can figure out the cheat code that lets you skip a level. Currently adding a score system (which will rely on a hacky text renderer ced made today). I’m really excited to see this on a physical console.@khalby7867+So I was working on Hack Club's link tree and was browsing through other Hack Club websites to make sure I got the Hack Club theming right. And I was doing this while listening to music, specifically Enemies - Imagine Dragons, when I noticed you could click on the header of Hack Club Workshops page to create cool animated blobs. Being a beginner osu! player, I decided to record it while clicking to the beats!@JaprozSaini-U03K70BL2R35piece of code from my compiler
@abby1While in Vermont I want to work on a project that challenges my current coding skills. I’m starting to work on moneyFlow which will be a service that every time Hack Club gets a donation, it emails Christina! In my first session working on this, I created the repo, Integrated request information from bank API, and I am now working on setting up Mailgun!
@rishi1Yesterday, I ran my very first IRL hack night at our house in SF! We had a couple dozen people drop by throughout the evening and make everything from ai research to a perfect word generator w/ gpt-3 (and people were coming until about 2 in the morning! new first for me in hackathon organizing)
We started off at the house, then went over to Noisebridge (a ridiculously cool anarchist hackerspace about 2 blocks away from us) and made some music and synth visualizers :) all of us ended up coding until the wee hours in the morning, and we had some pretty sweet people show up—Jacky, Pranav, Ben and the cofounders of DeepAI!
still trying to get over my sleep deprivation but I couldn't be happier with how it turned out <3
@cernockyd5writing quick one-pager research on hack club. it's has been fun so far
@caleb0we do serious business at hack club bank. we even have an official office sign
@zrl0Latest prototype of 3D printed Hack Club swag. First 3 people to DM me their mailing address gets it! I have 3 to mail out.@reesericci7+I submitted my application to create a Hack Club!
@ella5Working on building out a public, read-only API for Hack Club Bank this week. :ohyeahwoofyeah:
@zrl0Latest batch of Hack Cubes complete! DM me your address if you want one!@ella5Wahoo! Starting today, transferring money between Hack Club Bank organizations is instant ⚡ This means that the transferred funds will reflect in your account balance immediately, even before the underlying transaction arrives (which usually takes a couple days).
Other incoming payments like donations and invoices aren’t quite instant yet, but if your event is coming soon and you have incoming funds still in transit, you can now ✨ request fronted funds ✨ from the details page of the donation/invoice—we’ll lend you the funds via an instant transfer.
Read more about this update in the changelog.
@zrl0Making some more Hack Cubes! This time with a white background, and red text. This is using the new extruder I installed in the printer @linus0:lefthand:New Ship Time:righthand:

@karolina0Have you ever sat and thought, "Hmm, I wonder how cold and depressing it is in Seattle right now? How much better off am I?"
Introducing... Seattle-ometer! Now, you can compare yourself to Seatteites to your heart's content! Just type in a valid US ZIP code and press submit.
Brought to you by a rainy day in Seattle with nothing better to do :)
@linus0Last night I hacked this together at @pranav’s hackwa hackathon in about 40 minutes: CharlieQuotes! It features python and rate limiting of the slack api and quotes and html in long python strings! (Shoutout to pranav for making such a fun event!). Source code is attached :charliepog:@sampoder4🚢 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!
@J_cordz7+Today I learned more about Nix :nix: thanks to @tejasag! I have a better understanding now about nixOS, nixpkgs 🗃️ home-manager 🏡 nix-darwin 🐠 and other things! I have a better idea too on how this kind of dotfiles works.:parrot-nix: As well I'm finally working on my website again! I never finished last design so this is going to count towards my first version! 🌐 Also yesterday I managed to de-cypher 🔓 and enter Hack Club :hack-club: 2022 summer event :tw_bridge_at_night: website! It was so much fun and a very interesting project! I learn a lot of things from this like OpenSSL! :cat-on-the-laptop::tw_unlock:Lastly, somehow I saw Vercel's 404 :sadmac: page for the first time while checking my projects dashboard. :vercel::sphere:
@pybash0just shipped rrpm in #ship feeling good. here is a random code snippet form the codebase
@caleb0Today I went on a bike ride with the one and only @matt (the first official Hack Club New Hampshire Meetup!)
Saw a bunny (pictured) and a deer.
@jessicard7+Some exciting news!
All of the guide content for <https://github.com/hackclub/some-assembly-required|Some Assembly Required> is in, and we are ready for some eyes on it.
I’d love to get a few volunteers who are open to reading it and giving feedback on the guide by Monday. I’d also love to know how long it took you to read through the guide, so we can add a time estimate to the introduction section. You don’t have to finish it all in one session, but just keep a timer going when you’re actually sitting down and working through it :)
If you’re interested, feel free to hop into #some-assembly-required and pop a message in there. Feedback can be given on a thread in the channel.
Thanks so much! 💖
@jessicard7+Spent today working through the code examples and organization of the #some-assembly-required. Woohoo! Things are really starting to solidify 😄 Looks like we’ll be at about 24 pages, not including the READMEs for the individual assembly languages and the code example files. Kinda cool!
@jessicard7+Every 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!
@J_cordz7+Today I learned about a very cool Blender :blender:Halftone Shader:macintosh-stcicker: thanks to @msw! This is going to be useful for my 3D model experiments and for 2D as well! :quad_parrot: Today I also studied for my Biology 🦠 🔬 test that I'll have tomorrow and finished yesterday's PR :pr: that got merged! :merge: Also I'm working with @jessicard on a new project for Hack Club :hack-club: that I'll give more details soon! 👀
@J_cordz7+Today I learned more on how to work with VScode! :vsc: I didn't knew :thinking: it was possible to open a terminal :macintosh-stcicker: on it! I tried as well to open the neofetch command and Vim :vim: on it and my Splatter Paint 🎨 project files! Today I also worked again on details for two new Hack Club :hack-club: PR! :pr: The first one is to add Scrapbook to the GitHub :github: README and the second is my Workshop translation guide! :mexicoparrot: All of this are from ideas talked with @jessicard yesterday, thanks a lot for guiding me and reviewing my work! :yay: Lastly for today, I kept studying for my Biology Exam! 🦠 🔬
@Aileen0Howdy! :hyper-dino-wave: This is my first Scrapbook post! :scrappy: Today I started reading a book about Python AI and Machine learning :python: and also designed a summer themed Hack Club sticker! I used Figma and Krita for designing and painting the background. Yesterday, I went to my figure skating class and also did 3 half rotation (Waltz) jumps in the ice rink! ⛸️
