After building a project, like an app or website, “shipping” is publishing & sharing it online.
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.
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 just shipped mailcorgi proto!
Hi, I hope you're all doing good. I would like to ship my latest project. Sentiment Analyser: It's a beginner friendly NLP type project that predicts the sentiment of a tweet as either positive or negative. It's trained using the US-Airline-tweet dataset and scales well to most of the tweets related to transportation (doesn't work well with other types or tweet tho). Currently it's in a jupyter notebook format which makes it easier to learn from, feel free to use it for learning, experimenting and improving. This is not yet deployed, I'll have to learn flask to deploy it so maybe in the near future. Repo : github.com/Gautam-flash/diabetese_pred
Hello all, Here is another ship🚢 from me, Diabetes predictor. It uses the PIMA India dataset with KNN as it's model to predict if a person has high risk of diabetes based on factors like: pregnancies, age, blood pressure, glucose, bmi, heritage (if their ancestors had it), skin thickness and insulin levels. Few of notable features are: • The data imputation technique used • Normalisation used • A recursive approach to attain best value of K for knn. The GUI is made in tkinter. This is not supposed to be a health app or something, but a learning experience. Here is the link: github.com/Gautam-flash/diabetese_pred Feel free to comment
Weeee a bit late but I wanted to ship our club board! We prepared a bunch for club day at our school (and made use of the dark arts of stickers), and managed to get ~110 emails to spam!!! I might do a write up about things that helped, but it was super funny because the interactive website demo part (we built a synth that anyone could join in with on their phones) ended up being less helpful than just jumping up and down and yelling, and bribing moles in a bunch of groups to talk about how hackclub is cool (with stickers ofc). We also managed to get almost 30 people for our first meeting (a lot of people emailed they couldn't make it lol), with a bunch of people coming back from last year, so it was super cool to know that people liked it!
I decided to challenge myself starting today. (Cringing about starting in the middle of the month and week). Each week, I will be working on a different workshop from workshops.hackclub.com. I hope that by the end, I’ll have gained a lot of coding knowledge, and hopefully some cool stuff to #ship. Here’s Day One - <https://personalwebsite.courtneydiane.repl.co/|Personal Website>.
I was tired of not being able to find any website that could calculate total length of a YouTube playlist, so I built one! Gonna ship it soon 🚢 ⭐
Hack the north was this weekend, which meant it was time to build—build something big. This all started off as a platform to yell at people. No, seriously. In Global Politics class, we were introduced to the world of politics that we live in, and well, the propaganda and complexity for democracy shocked us. Articles are long, politics are complex, social issues are widespread, and ranting to friends leads to nowhere. We wanted to build a better way to learn—to clear the mist by alleviating false and opinionated facts through a gamified system. And that’s what Diplomatica is for, bringing the truth to everyone. The platform is broken down into scraping relevant and desired articles, summarizing them with our AI models, and a decentralized debate platform to spark thought-provoking conversations and to compete with your friends. A like on devpost, or a star on github, would be greatly appreciated :partyparrot: Open Sourced @ github.com/Diplomatica-HTN Live @ diplomatica.vercel.app Devpost @ devpost.com/software/diplomatica Hope You Enjoy, Toodleoo! @pateljaival05 @sandhu.s.veer
hey look i'm an entrepreneur gadzooks.me
ship ship ship ship ship ship ship ship ship Last november, I chose to write a novel. Why you might ask? I'm not sure myself, but all I know is: no regrets This is why I am incredibly excited to be launching Breaking Barriers, a novel about hope. This digital-first novel is something I've been working on for a while, and I'm THRILLED to be launching it as a fully-digital and free novel Technically, I finished writing the novel in March, but to be honest, I've procrastinated the actual release just a little bit. Unfortunately, adding this to my website has now held myself accountable for my actions, so I hope you enjoy. Gratefully, the novel is open sourced, so yeah: free for all, available to the public, you can edit whatever you want! Now, mind you, the writing level is not at it's peak. When the writing process began, I decided to tailor it towards 8-13 year olds. For this reason, the writing may seem a tad too casual and the grammar, well, purposefully lowered in complexity. Essentially, I wanted to create a novel where learning about autism at a young age was not too difficult. Autism, eh? When did you mention autism? Well, the pushing force for this novel was actually to teach kids about autism through a novel. Autism is rarely taught, and when it is, the content is subject to stereotypes and opinions. The novel features Ryan Williams, an autistic teenager in Ottawa and his journey to become a lawyer in the 21st-century. As he breaks the barriers of societal norms, he builds friendships and new skills along the way. The naming may not be very creative, but we'll keep it as is for now I'll probably post about it on Instagram tomorrow, but in the meantime, check it out at book.heyrajan.com. Want to give feedback, make sure to make a PR! As always, open sourced at l.heyrajan.com/g/novel! To get started, just click "Read The Novel Here", and your journey will begin. I hope you enjoy and I can't wait to show y'all a few more things I've been working on. Until next time, a coconut with purple food colouring
i got a lil bit of downtime in class today so i made a quick script with puppeteer that logs into my gradebook, takes a screenshot, and ~publically shames me~ forces me to be accountable for my grades! im planning on setting up a cron job to get this to run every friday. see source: github.com/jasonappah/is-clown
weeeee 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!
once i start shipping, i can never stop ~ coming soon 👀
Ahoy! 🚢 :shipitparrot: This is probably my favourite ship so far and I'm more than happy to announce heyrajan.com. In your exploration of my digital persona, it hope that you develop a profound understanding of my world, built on the foundation of creation and change. It's always been a dream of mine to release a personal website, and I am ecstatic that the first people I can share it with are my fellow Hack Clubbers :parrot_love: . A few things:
/home 🏠 ~ Manifesto, Highlights, Daily Activities, Upcoming Initiatives
/explore 🔎 ~ Socials, Contacts and A Few Important Links
/ventures ✈️ ~ My favourite non-work endeavours that I'm working on
/prev 📰 ~ Coming Soon
I hope that you can learn a bit more about my world, as online we are just a few profile pictures looking at one another. Also, "heyrajan" is now a ping word, for all you pingy hackers out there 👀
Subdomains: g (github), in (linkedin), ig (instagram), d (devpost), t (twitter), sb (scrapbook)
As always, open sourced at github.com/itsrajan/heyrajan. Feel free to add issues, feedback, PRs or just thoughts overall. Thank you everyone for your support, and I hope you enjoy :hyperbongocat: :hyperfastparrot: :hyper-dino-wave:
Finally picked a name for my next ship thanks to @sporeball. Next up, README.md, reddit, product hunt and #ship posts. Maybe some optimization. Also tried habaneros for the first time. That was super fun! Very fun!!
As some of you may know, Scrappy recently went on an eventful holiday (read the story in #scrapbook)! 🎉 Luckily, Scrappy is back and better*! It’s internal storage unit has been updated to switch from the Airtable Store-a-tron v0.1 to the PostgreSQL Prisma Flexi-tron! The old store-a-tron was showing a big :warn: so we need to change before we had to shill out a ton of money for an enterprise variant. (this has been something i’ve been pushing through working on since last month and i’m so glad it’s finished, if you haven’t picked up Scrappy and Scrapbook now runs on PostgreSQL and Prisma, source at github.com/hackclub/scrappy & github.com/hackclub/scrapbook) the Flexi-tron is known to be buggy, so if you run into any issues please please ping me and let me know so I can fix everything up, thanks :D
i was going to wait to test it with multiple users before shipping but THIS IS HACK CLUB, that is not necessary!!! i love #slotify but as an apple music user i hate feeling left out of all the cool tools people make that are spotify-only. so i decided to bravely battle the apple music api and build slotify for apple music! i shared a proof-of-concept in #scrapbook a few days ago that was hardcoded with my credentials, but now you can use it too if you are an apple music user :applemusic: just head over to apple-music-slack-status-1.techbug2012.repl.co and sign in with slack & apple music. use
/music-status to toggle it on/off (it should be on by default after you authenticate though). if you run into any issues at any point, please let me know 🙏
Mini ship! 🚢 Taught my first intro to UX workshop this past weekend I was pretty nervous about hosting one but I am glad I fought the fear and slightly conquered impostor syndrome in a way :p We had lots of fun in the process and vibed to DPR Live. The link to the presentation (removed speaker notes but dm me if you want to see it though)
MORE FREAKING BIT MANIPULATION BUT SO WORTH IT, SHIP COMING SOON!! make sure to watch the recordings
Tonight, @arsh7chetana, @NeilGhosh & I managed to win the Junior AWS Build On ASEAN 2021 hackathon in Singapore :D We did the Cognizant track which was about creating positive communities and all. Anyways, our project was a website that let people look around for places where they can volunteer and then message the organisers, we had to focus on security and all so we built an ID verification system with SingPass (SG government’s OAuth system to have people log in with their national ID cards) and a few other things (some admittedly, a bit gimmicky). Anyhow, here’s a screenshot. We’ve got a limited public version that we put up at comiteer.co & I’ve put the code up at github.com/sampoder/comiteer. First time winning a hackathon so I’m pretty ecstatic lol, also had a ton of fun doing it yee
Meet montertheme! A VS code theme inspired by macos monterey! I love the color pallet and now I can use it in my code editor! This was fun to learn about Azure DevOps and PATs, as well as the workflow for publishing extensions! marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=l3gacyb3ta.montertheme
Felt great to finally ship the esports coming soon sight! I haven't got to work on stuff in the past week or so, and shipping this felt really nice!
