@aaryan0Yeah been on sooo many zoom meetings this week (we don't use zoom for school), also I realized how much netflix I've been watching :angrycry: . I've been learning React again these days and brushing up on my ML theory!
@bellesee12120spring break ended and I went to school in person today also, read the wind up bird chronicle... the quote was me today
@taylorylee0Registered for Config (Figma's design conference) :figma: and released our school newspaper's first podcast episode you can check out here! It's about personal narratives and it serves as a historical archive of stories from students and other community members at our school. I am still figuring out how to podcast, but it has been a fun process piecing audio together
@matthewgleich0Made this little website for my drug project presentation in a month! I even added a toast notification explaining to the user that they need to use the arrow keys :)
@everest0Writing a script for a YouTube video. Literally more words than I ever write for anything at school.
@swlittle71Setting up WinApps for school. TBH Windows even on Linux is terrible
@avi2instead of using my school's all-day self-study time to work on homework, i spent it on coding club prep and trying to get a damn slack bot to work, and idk whether to feel horrible from procrastinating or feel great that i got the oauth side to work and got the slack bot to post messages on behalf of users
~yes, i'm using repl.it's database temporarily, but i'm switching to postgres later~
@ella0started a new project today (a website for a school club) and applied for KWK :yay:
@jeswinsunsi0Uh 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.
@sampoder1did debate, was the first time our school had ever won a debate in this competition
@maxwelldev0To myself: stop looking at my grades! Sorry, I'm too excited!
@sampoder1Hosted 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
@maxwelldev0I 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)~
@maxwelldev0A 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!
@avi2My 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
@avi2making 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.
@avi2during 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
@sampoder1continuing 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
@sampoder1planning out the most epic technology week a school has ever seen and sorted some stickers
@riley33chou0pretty 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
@sampoder1built 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!
@sampoder1made 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
