@alexkesin0started learning julia! wrote a prime number finder this morning
@hemesh7+Tests finally over! Today I wrote some really bad Express and MongoDB code. I also discovered fruitionsite.com a cool way to make sites with notion.
@neel.redkar0Hi! First ship in a while! I wrote something about the increasingly polarized political climate, and ways we can work towards more civilized debate! notebook.neelr.dev/stories/X6W89xAAACQAE7Ia
please leave any suggestions in the thread! (also star if you liked it uwu)
@thatrobotdev0Inktober Day 15: Outpost
Half way! 🥳🥳. Unfortunately a little late, but the end of the quarter has been super busy! Hopefully a normal schedule for the rest of the challenge 😄.
Look out for the mirage.
@sampoder0as couch camp drew to a close, and our scoring manager fell to sleep way too early.... we found ourselves with scores scattered across 22 separate JSON files.... oh dear making the closing slides would be a pain
but i did not want for the not so techy people to go through any pain... so i stayed up very late last night and built certs.couch.camp/results that went through and linked together all the JSON files to output the critical results needed. it ended up saving hours for my friends today and i'm very happy about that. i'm quite proud of the hacky js stuff i wrote whilst half-ish asleep lol
and then today i built on top of that system to make certificate websites for each scholar... it involved even more linking of JSON files, using square numbers to make it challenging for scholars to find others urls and a whole load of JS to make the award names. all together it looks like certs.couch.camp/71407A, people have to screenshot to save it which i guess is alright
its all a big hack, here's the source code for: github.com/sampoder/couch-camp-certs im so proud of this massive hack
i continue to fall in love with Next.js
@thatrobotdev0Inktober Day 14: Armor
First thing I could think of was Minecraft copper armor (even though it probably won't be a thing 😜)
@thatrobotdev0Inktober Day 9: Throw
"Oh no the runner cannot hear us he has airpods in"
Since I'm working on a project for the
Hack@Home hackathon, I decided to do a programming joke today 😁
@lachlanjc0I don’t have a specific way of coming up with ideas for projects. A lot of my projects are also iterations on a theme; I made a site called NRA Funded as one of my first React projects in 2016 (nrafunded.now.sh), then Fossil Funded a year later (lachlanjc.github.io/fossilfunded), then returned to the idea last year with Gun Funded (gunfunded.com). The original idea came from the Pulse shooting in the news, then I kinda kept growing it from there. Same thing happened with predictcovid.com then testing.predictcovid.com, those were the dominant news items in March & I wanted to visualize them with data.
My open source libraries are mostly extracting a solution I came up with for a problem (e.g. snowflakes in React for hackclub.com/santa, github.com/lachlanjc/resnow) to make it reusable (Hack Club Theme is this as well). I think otherwise it’s easy to make not-very-useful projects, & once you’ve solved the problem yourself you have more constraints & opinions on how to do it well/make it useful.
I also tend to reuse & remix many elements from past projects (look at Gun Funded vs testing.predictcovid.com), & I’m not afraid of constantly remixing my ideas & code in public. You don’t need to learn a new tech stack & make an entirely new design language for every project—& I think lowering the barrier by reusing elements makes it easier to make more stuff, which is a positive cycle. I wrote about this: notebook.lachlanjc.com/2019-09-06_my_websites_look_the_same (including an image for Scrapbook)
