@philipstudentemail0@sampoder lead an amazing Kaboom workshop at PyraHacks today! And PyraHacks ended with over 250 projects shipped raising $2000 dollars for St. Jude! @blakedfreeman and I are so thankful to all the hackers, speakers, pledgers, and sponsors! Also a shoutout to @micahlt and @RobbieKhazan for helping us organize PyraHacks!!!
And speaking of streaks, with this post I take @sampoder second 🥈 streak place at scrapbook post with 243 consecutive days!!! 🔥 :parrotdad:
@J_cordz7+2021 is over, Hi 2022! I'm happy to start a new year where I hope to make amazing things. Today I started my new hacker journey with 3 small commits and did my first review on a Hack Club Repo, thanks for this @sampoder! Here's an image of my brand new year GitHub HeatMap and the one of my scrapbook, which it's a bit bugged because I post daily, but still, it's awesome to be able to work on amazing things and I hope to have great memories and moments on this year.
@zfogg1Here's the secret project I mentioned, @hugo.y.hu935! i'm putting together something called....
✨ SAMBOX ✨
The Sambox is little box that has a computer you can SSH into and instantly hack on a project and deploy it, with custom DNS and zero setup :cooll-thumbs:. It has its own wifi router and everything. Just power it up and start hacking; you're good-to-go!
This Sambox will go on a journey. It's going to start by being mailed to a Hack Clubber, who will hack on it for a few days (until the timer runs out‽). We'll include four shipping labels with Sambox so that the first hacker can mail it to the second. The second hacker may change or customize anything on Sambox or contribute something new, and then pass it on to the third after the time runs out.
All hacking will be done OFFLINE on the Sambox :yuh:
The final person to get Sambox will be @sampoder of course, who will plug it into the internet, putting all of the projects online! :yay:
Here's the shopping list. Parts arrive ~tomorrow~ today!
@Skye0hows this really quick draft for the summer of making emoji 2021? the lines are ugly but can be fixed :)
@matthewvandyke080Today I have officially reached 365 days of posting to my scrapbook. I started during Summer of Making last year just as something to do, but after the summer I kept up with it to keep myself accountable. If you go back you can see all my projects and updates from them that I have done since last year such as: Students Who Code, my portfolio, myDash, BrainDUMP, esports website, running Secret Santa, and so much more! Thank you to everyone who has followed along and thanks to @sampoder and @matthew for creating scrapbook! So now that 365 is done.....whats next?
@caleb0Big news: scrapbooks now have RSS feeds! 🎉 Visit yours by appending .rss to the end of your scrapbook's URL, e.g. scrapbook.hackclub.com/caleb.rss (doesn't support custom domains)
You should also be able to run /feed subscribe <https://scrapbook.hackclub.com/username.rss> to subscribe a Slack channel to your scrapbook, but I admittedly haven't tried it.
Thanks @sampoder for helping out! :sam-1:
@manasmw3330This is what I showcased in the #asiaconf
The self-stabilizing spoon was my Summer of Making project and now I'm shipping the version 2.0
I tried to reduce the size of the handle and also designed a custom PCB for the same.
I'll ship the final product once the 3D printed case is ready.
Thank you Hack club team and the SOM team.
Special thanks to @zrl @sampoder @roshan @annleefores.
You guys are awesome!@sampoder1today i presented.. the *CLIMATATOR*! it’s a 4D interactive media experience / climate change simulator that showcases the effects of climate change to a younger audience. you enter the cabinet, put an AR headset on, watch a fictional weather report from 2050, then you begin to feel the heat of a heatwave 🔥 (there’s a strong heater inside), then you going on a bumpy ride (haptic motors) in a fire truck fighting wildfires :firefighter: (it’s still boiling from the heater and it intentionally smells of burning) and to end of your experience a cyclone with winds (a big fan) and shaking (haptic motors) 🌀 + it’s got sound effects and a nice video (this is my myp personal project, goal was to create an engaging way of learning about climate change)
the wooden structure was put together with a lot of drilling and with the use of recycled materials to the extent possible. i learnt a lot about woodworking as this was my first ever real woodworking project.
*this is biggest project ever, it’s taken me since August to build this all out…..* and i’m really proud of the final product. uses a mix of Raspberry Pi Python, Arduino, Next.js & Node.js to all work. the AR headset is powered by Holocron (www.npmjs.com/package/@sampoder/holocron)

@Khushraj0Big ship coming up! 🚢 :shipitparrot:
Over the past month I’ve been porting all of Node Slack SDK’s :nodejs::slack: packages to Deno :deno:, and today I’ve finally completed a major step — I finished porting Bolt ⚡ (and all of its dependants)!
Presenting, Slack Bolt for Deno, a TypeScript :typescript: framework to build Slack apps using Deno rapidly with the latest platform features ⚡️
• GitHub :github://github.com/KhushrajRathod/slack-bolt>
• /x/ :deno:: deno.land/x/slack_bolt
This completes a major part of the Deno Slack SDK:slack-deno: 🎉

@sampoder1This Christmas I got a Jedi Challenges AR Headset from Santa (thanks Santa!). I really like the game, but I wanted to be able to put custom applications on to it!
So I made Holocron :jediparrot: which is a React component that makes doing so super duper easy. It helps you size the window correctly and position the screen etc. It was my first time making a React component and I found the publishing quite difficult but I worked it out well: www.npmjs.com/package/@sampoder/holocron
I then built a demo app that shows the status of your Vercel deployments on your headset. It uses SWR and react-reveal to make it feel buttery smooth!
I also built one that implements the Slack events component on the Hack Club Website (here) on to it (sadly I ran out of time to put this in the demo vid but there are pics attached!
Here's the GitHub project for the package: github.com/sampoder/holocron.
And here's the demo video which I submitted to MLH's weekly hackathon...... and guess what?? Somehow, I won Best Overall Hardware Hack so I now get a free kit from ironically DigiKey (you still owe me money, no escaping) but my react component won best hardware hack lol!@sampoder1got hack club slack onto my jedi challenges headset! using www.npmjs.com/package/@sampoder/holocron
@ella3created a program to change my Slack pfp to different pictures of cats throughout the day (based on @sampoder’s Slack pfp workshop)
@rajendradangal100Hello. Sorry I had been distracted from the slack since months and couldnot thank hackclub for the hardware. I am thankful to @sampoder for accepting the project and then guided me to try different sites and tools but when nothing worked then @roshan was there to help me with the hardware I needed and spend long time figuring out things and thank for helping me with the shipment issues and at last @nasheeb.dangi for helping me with the Customs because I would have to pay lot more without you. Thankyou all guys!

@avrohomtravers0My front door face recognition system is now operational. It still has some small glitches and there are a few thing I'm planning to change but overall it works quite well. I can come to the front door and type in my code to unlock the door (only if it sees me). If it doesn't recognise someone then it will send me a picture of them so that I can add in their name in.
Great big thanks to @sampoder and everyone else involved in the SoM.
@sanjanarajk140Thanks @sampoder i just now received my first package and am really thankful to you . But the delivery boy says that i need to pay for 2 parcels in COD which he didn't give me today, as he said they do not deliver COD items on Saturday. Well I am bit confused , do i need to pay for those 2 items. Otherwise I am really happy to have my first parcel through.
