@Sam0I've been forgetting to write the past few days so here it comes! The past 4 days @ Shad :shad: and we're nearing the end of the program, here's some highlights! The final presentation went well as expected! We also went to 🇨🇦 Banff! It was my second time being there. The view in general, especially 🏞️ Lake Louise, was gorgeous as usual and I had some amazing 🤌 ramen at the Town of Banff! The same day, we got to ride the Banff 🚡 Gondola. The view during the ride and the views on top of Sulfur Mountain ⛰️ were amazing. I had a great time with my fellow Shad members. We also went to downtown 🏙️ Calgary! Took the C-Train 🚊 again; I love Calgary Public Transit. Visited the top of Calgary Tower, the view was breathtaking.
That's all! With only a day left in the program, and all the memories and connections I've formed, it feels bittersweet that I'll probably never see the majority of them after a day.
@Sam0Another tiring and full Shad :shad: day! More 🏛️ U of Calgary and the famous 🐴 Calgary Stampede!! Visited the UofC School of Architecture, Planning + Landscape. Saw some very cool student-made projects as well as their workshop! Also took the C-Train there and back. It was really crowded. Stampede wise, the food 🍟 there was surprisingly good (which is why I forgot to take pictures oops). Had some wacky stuff like ketchup and mustard 🍦 ice cream.
@Peiprjs0No I did not hack into the train screens just to make that shitpost-looking thing appear… this 2000’s “Next station” screen is the one actually used in the S-102 RENFE train series.
@Peiprjs0Train and book time! I’m on a 449 train as usual
@Peiprjs0I’ve been working on a drawing for a friend. Currently I’m on the train, working on it.
@Peiprjs0In the train. Still haven’t even had a coffee and I’m already falsifying processing data
@linkai0Day 1/10 of #hardware-party!! :winter-hardware-wonderland:
My project is a split-flap display, like those old black and white displays you see at train stations and airports back then! I got all of my parts, assembled my 3d printer, and already have been working on remixing some cad designs. Through many attempts (and many failed prints!), here’s what I got for my display so far. I’m gonna start playing around with motors and hall-effect sensors next! Also, I’m still in the process of 3d printing all the flaps 😁
@aaryan0Yo! It’s been a minute since I posted here, but I just hopped on the Z train and I gotta get my groove on with Go. So I’m starting with this fresh book: “Learn Go with Tests”, it’s showing me the ropes of Go with a TDD twist.
@Peiprjs0I’m on a train, headed to a class. It’s time for a classic Orwellian novel: Homage to Catalonia (hey that’s where I live!)
@DevIos0Hii there! Had a awesome hackathon event today, thanks for hackbank for sticker and fund!!, although we had snow and train being cancled we got 40 people to join in our event, side note the 3d print medal looked great psst @toby, here a 3d print of yesterday's model for now as I am tired to get all the hackzthon event , I will post once local news has publish it on there site!
@sevara0Check in... balloon train... it begins!!!!
@tejasbhartiya0Day 3/10 of #10-days-in-public !! I worked on my PR 2 and 3 of hacktoberfest on a train! (Zephyr who?) finally my terraform skills are coming into use.
@belle0Finished the tensorflow tutorial and also tried (unsuccessfully) searching for a dataset to train the model on! Was initially planning on posting something work+ related because today was incredibly busy but the chaotic video from max, caleb, and ella gave me much needed motivation!
(found the summary below really useful to keep in mind moving forward)
2/10 of #10-days-in-public
@msw0went out exploring sf w/ @KaraMassie-U032A2PMSE9 today. found a cool japanese bookstore that sold little dioramas to put between books on a shelf. i really want to try making my own, so i’ve sketched out a couple designs ranging from a train station to an elven garden. the design i’m exploring rn comes from tunic, a game i really enjoyed
@caleb0Saw a train (pictured) and a bowling-ball-juggler.
@hsh0Went on a train after a very very long time 🚆
@belle0Hey Fwens :hyper-dino-wave:
Today was pretty awesome!! Didn't get as much studying done but i got to hangout w/ my friends and play volleyball (had a free period so went to the gym to play around w/ the volleyball and even though i didn't ask, the pe teacher offered to train me which made it more fun). Also, worked on updating an existing web project (took longer than expected). ANDDDD i finally listened to alec benjamin's new album... so good!!! Hope you have a great day :)
(look at this album cover adfhkjsdhfs and the incohesiveness of this scrapbook represents my current mental state :flushded:)
@Ishan0Oh my god, school is taking up so much of my time. Did lots of math and physics homework and that’s about it, a tiny bit of Duckcoin refactoring and research into on-dish hashmaps for storing the blockchain. Also look at this freaking perfect photo of Robert from zephyr
@neel.redkar0weeeee I finally wrote a bit on the Zephyr! I don’t think it does it justice, but I just wanted to get something out, and finally stop procrastinating on it! I just wanted to say that I’m so thankful, and ya’ll really changed my life 💖!
Check it out at my notebook @ notebook.neelr.dev/stories/the-hacker-zephyr..
and you can checkout a quick video I made of my instagram highlights at the bottom of the post!
@zfogg0lmaoo amtrak really let us run a server on the train :eggsdee:@courtney0Back at Bucees again. Gonna use it as Zephyr therapy 😆
@matt0🚂@Jupiter0I saw the world's largest train switcher today, processing 10,000 cars per day, switching 3,000 between tracks. It's 8 miles long, 1.5 miles wide. It opened in about 1870. There's enough track in there to make a railroad from Denver to Omaha (I think? :thinkies:). CHOO! (Cc @melody for the train stuff)
@sampoder0had a great making session with @cwalker, building a cool project to end off summer of making :partyparrot: built a landing page generator for OnePwaa events today and did all sorts of small things... here's a photo of me and my siblings in front of a bullet train in Shanghai
@sampoder0Guess who's got their kayaking certification? Meeee, I completely fluked that "assessment" and now it's "safe" for me to kayak. I am a one star kayaker, I honestly didn't know you needed a certification to kayak so this weekend took an unexpected turn but was certainly one fun experiment! Also had fish and chips from this very British fish and chips shop, yumm
photos are of some art in the MRT I saw, a very empty mrt carriage and the fish and chips
