@sampoder5🇨🇦 Hack The North 2023! @ImDeet-U045B4BQ2T0, @fayd and I teamed up to make :goose-dance: Hack The Geese :goose-honk-left:! It was a game that attendees could play using the QR codes on their badges. Here’s how’d it work:
1. You’d scan your badge’s QR code to log in.
2. Your find someone who you’d like to compete against and scan their badge’s QR code.
3. You’d both receive a prompt, eg. “take a selfie with a someone with blue hair”.
4. You’d race to take a fun picture based on the prompt before the other player does.
5. You either win or lose, then you got to choose wether or not to rematch!
You can go to htgeese.tech/album to see all the photos that folks took during demos with the game (and many more of me stressing over the backend)!
We used a slightly cursed combination of a Next.js frontend and a backend written in Go which interacted with one another through Websockets…. yeah, very cursed and very jank. We also used Vercel’s new Postgres & Blob storage services which were surprisingly good. And, of course, we used Prisma…. including it’s slightly hacky spin-off Go client.
Another awesome part of the game was @ImDeet-U045B4BQ2T0’s custom designed geese (GEESE!):
Every player got one of these made for them when they first signed! The game was a bunch of fun to play IRL and we had people playing it throughout the demo session. Attached is a sick selfie of @fayd in his sunnies and the judge!
And at the end of the day, somehow, we were selected as winners so we got to demo on stage and won a couple of prizes which was pretty cool! Here’s us playing a game with all the attendees and a couple of other photos from the weekend (including us working on the project while on #hack-night!).
The GitHub is full of more photos and stories from the weekend: github.com/sampoder/hack-the-geese. O CANADA!
@Marios7+My rust todo application is going so well! The CLI is done and I need to add the delete todo functionality on the GUI!
Regardless everything is going so perfectly! Tauri is awesome to work with.
Here is a quick demo.
@alialiwa20054In May 2023, I have, for the first time, sponsored & organized a hackathon! 🎉
The event invited fellow students of all levels of mastery in computer science, and allowed participants at my school to form teams, make friends, innovate, win prizes, sharpen skills of all types (computer science, entrepreneurship, and beyond), and have a fun & memorable experience. 🎁
It was also a major personal goal for me that I am happy to have achieved before I graduate high school. :smiley-twemoji::thumbsup-dino:
Taking my past personal memories at hackathons I've attended, such as BetaNYC (March 2020) and Hack Club's Epoch Vermont (December 2022) :epoch:
The 2-day-long McCown Hacks :mccownhacks: also made a great closing to the third year (2022-2023) of Gaynor McCown Hack Club :gaynormccown:, and an awesome milestone of my nearly complete high school career 🎓 , in which my passion for computer science was sparked! :gaynor-mccown-gradient:

@Peiprjs7+I’ve made a timelapse of me building the “Everyone is awesome” LEGO set. Enjoy!@Shrey-Mehra0Moon looking awesome
@jzaleta2I added new details to my README like an awesome banner :cooll-thumbs:
@ni5arga7+Had an awesome meetup today!! Here are some moments xD
@ThomasStubblefield7+What if your club could collaborate with other clubs? What if you could connect with another club for a mini-hackathon or even make new friends while traveling and discovering a Hack Club in another city?
The Club Directory unlocks the power of cross-club collaboration, allowing clubs to transcend boundaries and create together. If this interests you, join #clubs-directory@Arpan had this vision and shared it with me, and we decided to make it a reality. We've been working on the tool for about a week (maybe two). I'll catch you up on what we've done in the following screenshots:
Screenshot 1: Arpan and I collaborated on a call to create the general user flow for the Club Directory.
Screenshot 2: Arpan and I split ways, and he began focusing on the backend while I focused on the frontend. See the UI prototype I created attached.
Screenshot 3: We realized we were a bit out of scope, so we narrowed the scope for our MVP so we can ship ASAP and work more closely with the community.
Screenshot 4: I'm coding the frontend MVP in NextJS while Arpan builds the backend in FastAPI.
p.s. currently I am working on multiselect & making that experience awesome & next I'll focus on responsiveness & map view
also privacy is a big concern and we're currently trying to work through how we can allow clubs to opt-in (or maybe opt-out) of the Club Directory)
all data shared here is fake club data, dw we're not revealing real data in this post
the old internal name was Club Network and the new name is Club Directory
@Samarth_Verulkar0Just received sprig posters and they are awesome 🔥 🔥 also I am working on my iron man helmet top Dome 🙃
@ThomasStubblefield7+Today marks the end of my time as the Dorman Hack Club leader, as I officially handed over the reins to Jaime, our club's next leader. I am excited to see how he leads his club and grateful for his decision to continue this space for makers at DHS.
In addition, today also marks the release of the Carolina Hacks mini-documentary (attached to this post). Carolina Hacks was a hackathon that my friends and I organized, and it was a truly unforgettable experience. Thanks to everybody who helped make it awesome.@ZeroQL7+#w-of-the-day day 117
ok small post since I'm really tired, i aced my math test with a near perfect score and so that's awesome, other than school i didn't do anything other than watching youtube videos and solving some more rustlings exercises
@jzaleta2#burrow! This is an awesome project! Maybe I'll learn Rust to help with it one day! :rust: I wasn't able to stay the full call but I'm definitely joining again next time. Also I read a bit on SineRider's code, I'll try to get back at working on the translations as soon as possible.
@Ruien1Dinner at Riot because free food :p also played some games on a ps5 in an awesome game room
@Sam7+#hardware-party day 6/10
My brain: Oh yeah this might actually work.
The main structure is mostly done!!! Gonna start wiring stuff up to get ahead on the code.
Bought two boards to try as the baseplate, IKEA as-is is awesome.
Also upgraded my light above my workbench! ~It’s now brighter than my future.~
@HaitomnsG-U04FQKQMCET0:winter-hardware-wonderland: Winter Hardware Wonderland Day 1:
Installed Raspberry Pi in Case and screwed in the cooling fans and tried to install the OS in it 🙂.
@jzaleta2Today I started to read Project Hail Mary and it's awesome! I need some book recs to read after I finish this one, also I worked a bit on organizing my dotfiles and on the workshop to manage my slack pfp.
@kaidevrim0just got back from las vegas, excited to start working on my server upgrade tomorrow, anyway here is an awesome thing i should buy
@adelly130received some supa awesome stuff (fudge from 10 days in public and card from holly) in the mail today! tysm to everyone at hack club hq!
@maggie0aaaah thank you so much everyone at hq! was awesome to meet you all at assemble and hacky holidays :partyparrot:
@Sam7+Ran two Hour of Code sessions to the grade 7s and 8s students at my school with my school's CS department students! Super awesome, but unfortunately I don't have any pictures of it. Here's a generic screenshot. Thanks to the teachers that organized it! :)
@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!
@pragyarajfb130What an awesome day to start with!! Meeting George and the “hack_morning” :partyparrot:
@DevIos0Yesterday night was writing message to 21 classes teacher to get time to present what hackathon , hackclub and etc are , today had awesome coffeee forget to take pic :sad_pepe: , now just trying to make cleaner version of who have gave us time and who I need to contact more :poggers:
@Sam7+Workshop Ship! :sprig-dino:I present my very first workshop.
It's now live on workshops.hackclub.com/sprig_dodge!
You should try it out and let me know how it goes. 👀
Sprig is so awesome, and I'm so happy that I can contribute.
It refreshed so many JS concepts that I have forgotten. The games on the gallery are so much fun! :D
@Sam7+Got some Rock PLA to 3D print, it looks awesome but is terrible to print with and breaks between layers easily. Also just learned that it can erode the brass nozzle. Returning the spool.
@fayd0Day 1 of #10-days-in-public
Brainstorming my notion app project idea. It’s basically GPT-3 powered AI copilot for writing blogs and other documents. I’m planning to integrate something like a sidebar inside notion using chrome extensions and also having slash commands to generate text.
I came across this awesome package which is going to make my work 10x easier! slashy.app
@jzaleta2:hacktoberfest:I registered to Hacktoberfest for the first time! It's going to be awesome! :cooll-thumbs:
@maggie0ahhhh thank you so much ella for the acrylic keychains! they look awesome 💖 :dinosaur_waving:
@jzaleta2Today I had a good day! There's not much coding updates but I'm going back to the city 🏙️ next week. Here's another awesome space 🌌 image and a screenshot of my previous #scrapbook post because it didn't correctly load last time. For my future projects, I plan to work on my GitHub Readme again! :github::quad_parrot:
@sampoder5🚢 Last week, my Hack Club ran ⚡Maker Week⚡. Which put simply was Hack Club for an entire week! We had a Discovery Zone on Monday morning (a series of generative art / visual displays), then every lunchtime we ran a workshop (such as the Kahoot & Kaboom workshops as well as a special science workshop) and to wrap it all up we had an evening hackathon called Maker Night. It was a ton of fun and hopefully we attracted some awesome new Hack Club members!
@jessicard0Every new assembly language I learn works approximately the same way, but somehow every time I see code for one I haven’t used yet I get totally intimidated lmao :flushded:
Today I worked on fully understanding @belle’s hello world 6502 example (which is awesome!!), and adding some clarifying comments to help people like me understand what’s going on!
@ced0shaking my head while looking at a software rasterized quad in zig
not following a tutorial or anything, just seeing how much I can do with the vector math I already know
I think calling @sin or @cos means your executable gets linked to the CRT which adds 60kb to my executable; if I can find a pure zig implementation of cos/sin, I can knock the executable size back down to ~4kb
I also think the quad grows in size a little bit when it's rotated because my tangent and normal aren't actually perpendicular 😳
ideally instead of setting the entire tangent vector, I could just set the "angle" and have my quad be an axis + angle combo,
but I'm not sure what the vector math looks like for that. I know if I have two perpendicular vectors I can get a third orthonormal basis using the cross product, but I'm not sure how to go from one perpendicular vector to 2 short of quaternions or rotation matrices (surely there's an easier way?)@KaraMassie0@kognise introduced me to google's new text-to-image diffusion-based generator, imagen , so A CAT got a new 'fit.
And here's the repo! :github::pullrequest:github.com/J-cordz/Acoustic-Galaxy:parrotdad:
I did it a few days ago as you can see it on my Scrapbook posts, but I was told to ship this as well! This features a custom background with a texture, gradients, the application of elements like :before and :after , some cool borders and a great animation! From this I learned how to get better at design and with CSS.
To all of this I'm attaching some pictures 📸 of the projects and the links! 🔗 🌐
That's all for today, feel free to ⭐ any of the projects or follow me if you like and see y'all later with the next Ship!! Wahoo!
@Andrew0I got my iPhone 12 mini today, so far it's awesome. Here is a pic I took and my home screen
@rithul0An addition to my wallpaper collection, the desktop version!
