All aboard!

Hack Clubbers focus on one thing: shipping.

After building a project, like an app or website, “shipping” is publishing & sharing it online.

Your first ship your first day.

Students in many traditional computer science classes are lucky to make a single project. At Hack Clubs, every member makes & ships their first website their very first meeting.

Keeping your eyes on the prize.

Instead of learning programming concepts in isolation, learning by shipping means you focus on what you need to build real projects. It’s more fun & leads to better learning.

i worked out how to gain access to the image feeds of major traffic cameras around the island and built a dashboard for snooping around looking at each one: sg-traffic.now.sh….. these images are cool to watch over time, I might make something tomorrow for generating time-lapses from them :D source @ github.com/sampoder/traffic-monitor …. I used next.js, who would have guessed?

Today/yesterday I release my first installable python app: nought. It organizes all of your files in custom ways that you define. For example, sort all your screenshots into folders by month. It includes powerful options and is super customizable. If you have any questions/find any bugs. Please submit an issue or PR! github.com/cole-wilson/nought

Scrappy now supports webhooks! so when ever you post something it will send a blank fetch request to any url you set... you can set that url using /scrappy setwebhook <https://example.com> I built a little demo app that adds my Scrapbook posts to my Github profile README (check out the image below) you can see it at github.com/sampoder/readme-scrapbook and make your own with hack.af/readme-scrapbook hope you all can automate cool things!!

follow up ship from this: we used the system for the first ever time at the grade 6+7 movie night!! it was a massive success overall, all the watchers had fun watching the movie and getting food hand delivered. @arsh7chetana is very proud of all the money we raised for future events ;) tho we had a bit of a rocky start.. but the system held out with like 20 orders a min, seeing real people use what i made is cool here's a real customer interview who loved being treated like royalty :D

I think this is ship-worthy!!! This is the biggest overkill in the history of overkill: I built a full-fledged platform for Jeopardy-style virtual puzzle hunts (can also be used for CTFs) in 4 months, and I finished today! It's built on top of Node.js, PostgreSQL, Redis, caches information locally, and pulls competition puzzles from Airtable for easy modifications. It also comes with a companion standalone announcement/alert system for real-time communication with your competition attendees. First run of it will be in a few weeks at a <https://integirls.org/puzzle|puzzle hunt> run for middle/high school female/nb students (you should signup if you are eligible!) Still figuring out how to deploy everything across multiple servers so students from around the world would have no trouble using the platform, but that won't take long! Code is very rushed, but it's completely open-source github.com/itsmingjie/infinity.

i devised a scavenger hunt for the entire school to participate! then the student council ran it :))) we even had a real treasure chest (thanks Sai and co for making it), and filled it with candy as an end goal! we had a whole qr code system to get hints which i built with next.js and stuff, i also made a safety plan to allow this madness to get approved by the school which i am quite proud that it happened :yay: oh it was also Think Pink day, the school was very very pink

as couch camp drew to a close, and our scoring manager fell to sleep way too early.... we found ourselves with scores scattered across 22 separate JSON files.... oh dear making the closing slides would be a pain but i did not want for the not so techy people to go through any pain... so i stayed up very late last night and built certs.couch.camp/results that went through and linked together all the JSON files to output the critical results needed. it ended up saving hours for my friends today and i'm very happy about that. i'm quite proud of the hacky js stuff i wrote whilst half-ish asleep lol and then today i built on top of that system to make certificate websites for each scholar... it involved even more linking of JSON files, using square numbers to make it challenging for scholars to find others urls and a whole load of JS to make the award names. all together it looks like certs.couch.camp/71407A, people have to screenshot to save it which i guess is alright its all a big hack, here's the source code for: github.com/sampoder/couch-camp-certs im so proud of this massive hack i continue to fall in love with Next.js

Inktober Day 14: Armor First thing I could think of was Minecraft copper armor (even though it probably won't be a thing 😜)

Today I ran what I called the "The Great Race Across Singapore" with my Student Council friends as a team building activity! How it worked that there were teams placed in secret locations and they had to go through a series of challenges to reach the "final location" on the other side of the island which was the Merlion in Marina Bay but they didn't know that. Here's how it worked: Each team had 4 council members and one council leader. The council members were each given a store number that they had to go to in he Yishun Mall. Then the council leaders were all separated from their team together at Yishun Station. To come together they need to communicate through their location with only emoji. Then once they have met, they receive a cryptic message: My name is TRY***PA, call me maybe? . When they type this word into their phone, it will call me. I then read out the following message: 1°21'53.2"N 103°50'27.8"E, but bigger. If you head to 1°21'53.2"N 103°50'27.8"E, you will yourself in a random carpark in Ang Mo Kio (Singaporean outskirt-ish suburb, very residential). But what is special about this random carpark, is that it is the site of a small Merlion statue pictured below (where you wouldn't really expect one, they're rare). And remember we wanted "bigger". So they now have to travel down to the main Merlion statue in Marina Bay racing against each other. On the way they had some fun tasks as well such as taking selfies, learning more about each other! First one there wins the race!!!! It went pretty well on the delay and despite some early hiccups the Academics Department team put their minds to it and won the race! How the completely skipped going into AMK by just use Google Street View 🤣 Diego got a big brain!! Here's a photo of the winning team and that infamous mini merlion as well some screenshots from Sherlock Holmes my alt account on Slack plus a make do TikTok that me and Anjali (VP) made coz neither of us have TikTok lol really nice to have some fun!
