@jeswinsunsi1Uh so in 2016, I had this bright idea, to make an operating system. Problem was, I only knew Qbasic. I don't give up easily, so what did I do? Did I learn Assembly and C? Yeaaaaaaah, no. Big brain me decided to do it in Powerpoint :picard-facepalm: With 74 slides, all hooked up with animations and transitions and a few dozen lines of Visual Basic (If you thought normal VB was bad, wait until u saw how I wrote it and how I named stuff) I managed to create a very dumb prototype. It has three mini games, a broken browser, a calculator, ability to change wallpaper, and a couple other things. It wasn't total waste tho, a lot of my classmates were in awe and I got into my school's faux computer club two years before others could, aaand it encouraged me to learn Python and that's how I got into coding and stuff. Why am I talking about it now? Well I popped in the USB I saved my project in after two years, and Jesus Christ I can't believe how cringy I used to be.
@sampoder7+did debate, was the first time our school had ever won a debate in this competition
@BetsyZhang1To myself: stop looking at my grades! Sorry, I'm too excited!
@sampoder7+Hosted an interactive sound festival this morning at school. Powering it was a massive system of NodeMCUs, a web app, python scripts, an API and groovy Sonic Pi code.
more: github.com/sampoder/sound-festival, videos in thread & thanks to zach and hq for helping with voiceovers
@BetsyZhang1I finally transferred my school's hack club website from repl.it to GitHub and it is now being hosted on Vercel! I am still getting everything set up and styled but you can check out what we have so far here: github.com/BetsyZhang10/flhs-hack-club! Lmk if you have any ideas for improvements!
@onrisky0Old-School Computer scrapbook theme ~(totally not stolen from a spacehey layout)~
@BetsyZhang1A website for my school's hack club and my first website that I am coding! Started 2 days ago and made some improvements. Can't wait to get it up!
@abbers5My school friend and I used :tensorflow: and :python: to make a GAN (a type of neural network) that generates decent color schemes? which is pretty cool 😄. I bet half the time it's overfitting lololololol, but I have no clue how to use Keras to get the loss so I can actually take a look at it & confirm
@abbers5making a slideshow for a school project about a hypothetical day in the life ten years into the future-- I want to be a materials engineer!
@alialiwa20050Did a grammar check on my Hack Club's website, was able to refine the text grammatically (found a few typos, too). Installed DeepSource, which is awesomely included in the :github::backpack:!
Gaynor McCown Hack Club's website (version 1.1.5) is live.
@abbers5during our school's coding club, we collaborated together to make the cheesiest, most low-quality political website ever for Vermin Supreme, 2024. it was still really fun and a good way to introduce peeps to HTML/CSS 🙂
@philipstudentemail0Did some game dev today. Here’s one of my favorite model cars I built in middle school an Austin Mini this model is 3.5ft wide by 5.66ft long by 3ft
@sampoder7+continuing the theme of making things for innovation week: we’re making a QR code garden in the school staircase! it’s going to be full of qr codes to hopefully make people intrigued
when you scan the qr code, you’ll either get a quiz (where you can win house points!), a link to an instagram filter, an emoji guessing game, a meme, a riddle or a riddle (forked from lachlan’s SoM ideas page)!
here are some samples:
i’m especially proud of the quiz one. it was my first time using cookies (which ngl are super cool) and basically it creates a cookie so you can only redeem the house points once! uses next.js + airtable (but you probs already guessed that!)
also geopattern is really cool, each page has a unique bg!
oh and one more thing: if you are super super lucky you win a free :github: t-shirt :flying_money_with_wings:
@BenjaminSmith1Setup GitPod so I can keep working on my website from my school issued laptop while I wait for a new NVME to USB adapter. I don't have a screenshot of the actual ui so here's my config file
@sampoder7+planning out the most epic technology week a school has ever seen and sorted some stickers
@riley33chou7+pretty empty but finished off the year strong at least. Goal for 2021: make time to code during the school year, not just summer and winter break
@lailahn0Days 14&15 of getting my life back together(because I forgot to post yesterday😭): I’ve mainly just been continuing school work and essays! My mom took me out shopping bc of my SAT score 💀
@lailahn0Day 14 of getting my life together: I actually did some school work and coding today 😛 I don’t celebrate Christmas, but I have a pretty picture of the sky from yesterday when it snowed
@sampoder7+built a fun game! it’s called dance-x-factor:dancing-dino:
you scan the qr code (this is intended for tv screens around my school), it then starts the dancing, a tensorflow.js model (made using teachable) will then monitor your performance, then the x-factor judges (or what ever you call it i feel like there are 10 of the same shows) will give you the golden buzzer or the big red buzzer based on what the model felt
it’s not at all accurate but it’s fun!
try: dance1.innovweek.co (note: this is designed to only be used by one client so if multiple people use it 💥 )
this was a fun thing to make, tho it contained me dancing in a public library very quietly to train an ml model… have fun!! and ignore my 1am dancing
@rishi0Yellow hellow everyone! It’s the first day of winter break, and now that all my school stuff’s finished (having handed in what might, in hindsight, have been one of the worst essays of my life), I’ve found myself quite pretty bored!
I’m going to be challenging myself to build one cool thing every day (and maybe ship it either here or in #rishi if it’s smaller), so here’s the first one!
I’ve found myself working with asynchronous hooks in React a lot; whether that be to fetch data or just do timed stuff client-side, the normal integrations just don’t really cut it for me. That’s why I built my own library for those kinds of hooks! @rishiosaur/async is built in Typescript, and has some awesome documentation as a result (Typedoc really comin thru), and has two hooks that I use a lot in my daily React life: usePromiseEffect and useAsyncEffect, both of which are modelled to look like idiomatic React (I’ve attached an example of their usage down below).
:githubparrot: You can find the Github repo over at z.rishi.cx/g/async (feel free to star!),
:npm: The NPM package over at www.npmjs.com/package/@rishiosaur/async,
🏗️ And the documentation over at async.rishi.cx!
@sampoder7+made a rick rolling thing! you fill out the form and it gives you a call with the rick roll + a little ad for the event (read on)…. i made it with next.js and nexmo
the idea is that we’ll have these qr codes all over the school (we have permission, its going to be like cloudy with a chance of meatballs but qr codes instead of food)
ignore the fact that the screen recorder doesnt pick up the call sound, trust me it does work
@sampoder7+built a live drawing activity! it’s a live activity for events where attendees write basic commands to draw shapes on a large screen, it’s intended for absolute beginners (going to use at a school assembly in feb)
The attendees enter a terminal-like interface where they write commands inspired by p5.js, these are then checked and sent to the webpage at /live using Socket.io which then runs them on the p5.js canvas.
Try the attendee view: draw-innov-week.sampoder.com And the main screen view: draw-innov-week.sampoder.com/live

@swlittle77+Fun food frenzy at school today. EDIT: ok 200+ notifications that's scary
@sampoder7+i made a thing a few weeks ago with my :hardware: that i never shared… it’s a sound reactive necklace for school!
i made it in one night after my product completely fell apart so i was very fortunate to have saved it :)))
code is @ gist.github.com/sampoder/374fc57a01a08514f3946c02c1cec5fc
as a demo you can check out my video review of the product functionality i submitted:
@sampoder7+i made a newsletter for the new school magazine launching tomorrow! i used next.js, mdx and deployed on vercel! been a bit stressful putting it all together but proud of the end result: vantage-point.online:yay:
@Chris1School is over and my year has been fasting all the way even here at have club 😭 I can't imagine everything that happens in just one year, tome to continue to code again:ultrafastparrot::ultrafastparrot::ultrafastparrot::hackclub::party-dinosaur:
@rjhangiani0reread the hate u give today, highly recommend especially now. i first read it a couple years ago for a school project when i thought racial injustice was mostly a thing of the past, but now it's really eye opening to read it again after all that's happened and that i've learned has happened
@sampoder7+I made a (funny?) story video out of our school's halloween dress down day pictures... its a bit random
@sswikerdiddell0Gonna take the amc8 test at school today. Hopefully I dont do bad :yikes:
@jasonaa0Today I remembered that I had an essay due for my English class, so I built this website to make ~up for the lackluster content~ my essay look high quality. As you might be able to tell the design is pretty inspired by Sam's state-of-democracy.vercel.app and Lachlan's numerous web-essays. I'm pretty proud of the site cause I built it in a couple of hours. If you wanna check it out it's over at jasonaa.me/essay-iii
