@vik0also worked on a lot of #onboard outreach on various niche discord servers. hack club is now AN OFFICIAL RESOURCE!!! on the keyboard atelier resource google sheet, and its just beginning of more to come!
@zrl0Day 3 of #10-days-in-public
Today I had two big accomplishments. My goal is to program a receipt printer to print a receipt every time someone wins a Sprig, OnBoard, or Blot grant onto my desk so I can read about their project.
The first accomplishment is that I added code to find OnBoard pull requests from GitHub usernames, download the project descriptions, and use tracespace to render SVG board previews onto the receipts. See below for a screenshot of what this looks like (it’s a screenshot of a subset of a PDF that is sent to the receipt printer - this is all publicly accessible data from the OnBoard repo).
The second accomplishment is that I flashed a Raspberry Pi to start getting this thing to run headless!
This is my first “real” project using Python, and I’m starting to feel a lot more comfortable using the language - which has felt awesome! I am so inspired reading about everyone else’s projects!
@zrl0Day 2 of #10-days-in-public: Pretty weak update from me because I’m still sick and mostly resting - I made a list of my next tasks for the project. I am struggling a little to think about how I want to get the onboarding flow to look.
I’ve never gotten a full project properly deployed and reliable on a Raspberry Pi, so I’m feeling a little overwhelmed with the service manager aspect, and with how to gracefully handle restarts.
@msw1#10-days-in-public I’m making a cookbook of PCBs based on what I’ve personally been learning. The first step was writing up the workshop I ran at The Summit so other club leaders can run it in their own club.
@sahitid0just put my blot together! :extreme-teamwork: so excited to bring it to my club meeting on monday ‼️
@KarthickArun0My club is going to start meets again after break i didnt really know what to give to them to do at our club so im just going to have them do onboard with the PCB Hacker Card tutorial , idk how many meetings it might take tho, but itll be fun for them , now that i can answer their questions since i already did it
@jdogcoder2Sending out my first ever wave of club onboarding emails! 😄
@sahitid0:forsyth-hacks-label:forsyth hacks (#forsyth-hacks) happened on November 18th, 2023 and was an overall success! at a point we had around 60 attendees and overall had an amazing time with our theme ⚡ (electricity) as well as workshops ranging from @ajs2’s jams to a mini UI design competition. and finally, the hours of food, coding, new friends, and projects (everything from a storm tracker app to a platformer game made w flow!)
personal highlights of the event for me was probably the conversations i had with new people :heart_hands: the whole day, the chance to mentor a group into creating their entire project - from not having an idea, to developing and shipping it 🚢, lightning talks during lunch (like the one about jamstack by @davidm) 🎤, presenting an APIs workshop :postman:, the amazing swag we were able to handout (including string bags, polaroids :tw_camera_with_flash:, & stickers), and of course the presentations at the end!
i want to give a huge thank you and shoutout to the following:
• @ChristianDutton-U04E0LL16MA right hand man all the way and helped make my website design a lovely reality. (can't wait for 3.0)
• @RyanDu-U04QM0MH6TV for the fresh new perspective and ideas for the event & an awesome workshop on how to not make crappy UI design (as well as the mini:figma:competition afterward)
• dj! for the most amazing design and logo for the event :forsyth-hacks-2-bulb:. (or "sick sticker" as sam poder himself deemed worthy)
• everyone who attended! we had over triple the amount of projects than last year and over 80 registered by the day of!
• and ofc everyone at hack club :hackclub-party: who cheered me on all the way (and :bank-hackclub-dark: ofc hcb grant- this event would not have been possible without this :money-printer:, and from the bottom of my heart i am very grateful :blobheart: ).
◦ i had an amazing conversation with @theamazing0 in the middle of the day about how special hack club was to me and how he's in the process of discovering this love for the community as i did a year ago.
▪︎ this spread of love would not be possible if not for the support of more hackathons and more clubs around the world!

@BrightLi0thanksgiving today! had our first club instagram post, didn't really do much else.
@jc0day 2 of #bci! today my goals were to get the hang of using kicad, understand the schematic of openbci's cyton board (which is, along with hackEEG and piEEG, the basis for a lot of our understanding of what exactly happens in EEG boards) and spin up a bill of materials for everything going in our pcb. i got to the first two and didn't do the last one (although i will eventually get to it!), but i had a lot of fun! today was another great day because this is the most fun i've had in a while building shtuff (among other things: deciding who would be who in the openai drama, the f*ckboard, dinner at steve). tomorrow's goal is to spend the whole day just building the actual pcb (and then spend thanksgiving off?) we're building this out in the open so my daily notes are all here: cloud-ckujstd4d-hack-club-bot.vercel.app/0jc_0e4ee6c5e5e546ce910bda3e3ad2ac10.pdf
(this is part of #100-days! join us over there, we're working on cool stuff like #apocalypse and #dallas-day-of-service!)
@jc0day 1 of #bci! i mostly got caught up on a bunch of things today (including, but not limited to: parts of the brain, eeg concepts like the 10-20 system, reading schematics, understanding what exactly we’re doing including the process of actually designing the eeg circuit: electrodes -> ads1299 (including digital to analog converter) -> microcontroller -> computer for extra processing - so many black boxes we’re trying to figure out!) and generally feel like i’m ready to start playing around with kicad/observing tomorrow! today was a great day overall, although we think we could have focused a bit more and it still feels like i don’t know anything. tomorrow’s goal is to build shit which is the easiest way to understand stuff. we're building this out in the open so my daily notes are all here: cloud-6crgvlqrj-hack-club-bot.vercel.app/0jc_e4acbe3e3aff48778866059bb21c78be.pdf
(this is part of #100-days! join us over there, we're working on cool stuff like #nanowrimo and #polyglot-warriors!)
@cupcakes7+cute stickers in cute packaging for my hack club!! so excited to open it
@ThomasStubblefield3trees (a-frame project :hack-club:) (different everytime)@jdogcoder2Nothing too exiting, had our first club meeting today! Nobody showed up, so we brainstormed tactics to get more people to sign up / interested!
@jdogcoder2Visited Hack Club HQ Today! Thomas & I worked on some fun things, with visits from Zach, Kara and others sprinkled in. Had a super great time, definitely going back again soon!
@acon0designed some pins for my school's deca club! they just arrived today and they look sooo good in person - pictures don't capture the quality 😁 (btw hack club should totally make some enemal pins! they're like 1-2 usd each but probably cheaper the more you buy)
@toby0good afternoon, and happy thursday!! lately, i've been working on redesigning the newsletter sign up section on hack club's landing page! today, i've been working on getting data fetching working, so no one has to worry about manually updating the issues! (github's api is not a fun time if you're trying to fetch a file's content!)
@OrbitalDev0T-73 days until Orpheus wins!
📚 Today, I completed the current challenge by collaborating with @KaraMassie to make our "read lists" longer (This is day two, since I briefly mentioned it in my last post!) I finished my book, His Majesty's Dragon by Naomi Novik today, and it was so good! I can't wait for the next book to be available at the library for me. Tomorrow, I'll pick up another book that I've been wanting to read.
:esperanto: I made it to sapphire league on :duo: Duolingo! Yay! I've also put a textbook on Esperanto on hold from the library. This particular book is held with high esteem in the community and I've had experience with some of its content as well... Its very well written!
🏫 I wrote a letter (Right-center) to someone in order to complete an assignment for my english class. The handwriting is... Let's just say it's not my best work.
✍️ I started writing the last scene of my second chapter. Gotta keep cranking through! I also wrote some song lyrics and poetry that's probably not going to get shared, but whatever. Since today was my writing club, we had some fun creating random story ideas, such as a horror novel about walmart employees trapping customers in the self checkout area and making them go insane from the machine saying "Please scan item then place item in the bagging area." Not only that, but there was even some classism involved! Fun times!
🏋️♂️ I'm not sure if I mentioned this in my first post for #100-days, but I'm trying to just be more active/healthier. I went for a walk outside and I have some stuff I'm going to do before I go to bed tonight.
🎼 I got the general concept for and first few lyrics of a twisted version of "Love Story" by Taylor Swift. It's meant to be from Romeo's perspective and ends with... Well, y'know, death. I think it sounds fairly good so far and if enough people peer pressure me ask me to share it, I may send a snippet.
That's all for today. Keep on scrapbooking, and remember to support the Orpheus house!
@MintyTreble0recently etched a small pcb for eeprom breakout and used my rp2040 board to read/write to it 😄
@arav0working on a new card for the hack club site! a little wonky right now though
@6ix40Where? Is there such a significant bug? No, there isn't. It is a new #feature :funny-dance:
@6ix40github.com/6ix4/WhoAmI Vite React Project renders images into animations. Now I use the cache for next step rendering. I want to use the technician sprite animation to make a simple web game in the future. This project was inspired by hack club members. I made a new feuter and would like to update more.I hope you like this.
Sorry if I share my work in the wrong channel, you can recommend me, I just have Github and other social media for not very long. nice to meet you all
@jzaleta0Woohoo! After some long-time procrastination, the #ship time has finally arrived! 🚢 Back in 2021, when I joined Hack Club :hack-club:, I had an idea—to create a website featuring the contents of my old iPod. However, that initial attempt didn't quite work out because I lost access to the files. But, guess what? Years later, I successfully managed to recover those old files, safely stored on an ancient hard drive, and now I'm giving it another shot! But this time, instead of making a simple static site, I used Vite.js :vite: to build github.com/jzaleta/stuff-warehouse!
Give it a ⭐ on :github: if you like it! :salute:
@ThomasStubblefield3Some design updates (still not close to done):

@alialiwa20050NFCard PCBs first schematics draft for Hack Club OnBoard 2023
@alialiwa20050In May 2023, I have, for the first time, sponsored & organized a hackathon! 🎉
The event invited fellow students of all levels of mastery in computer science, and allowed participants at my school to form teams, make friends, innovate, win prizes, sharpen skills of all types (computer science, entrepreneurship, and beyond), and have a fun & memorable experience. 🎁
It was also a major personal goal for me that I am happy to have achieved before I graduate high school. :smiley-twemoji::thumbsup-dino:
Taking my past personal memories at hackathons I've attended, such as BetaNYC (March 2020) and Hack Club's Epoch Vermont (December 2022) :epoch:
The 2-day-long McCown Hacks :mccownhacks: also made a great closing to the third year (2022-2023) of Gaynor McCown Hack Club :gaynormccown:, and an awesome milestone of my nearly complete high school career 🎓 , in which my passion for computer science was sparked! :gaynor-mccown-gradient:

@toonnongaeoy0Finally, Thai version of the Hack Club global site is up.
Thanks, @sampoder for making this project and help me along the way.
This also my first translate that I do in public, so if it have any mistake you can tell me and I will fix it right away, or maybe just make a pull request to the repo.
@Shrey-Mehra0Making an envelope to collect all Hack Club letters in it
@Sameer0Alright, my kind people!! Here's what I got in my recent package from hack club!! I got some "sprig posters" for Phoenix hacks:fireball:

@ZeroQL0#w-of-the-day day 144
I did not play valorant today, instead I spent most of the time studying organic chemistry (what in gods given earth is this?)
Also I’ve joined the 100 day streak club 😎
