👋 G'day! My name is Sam and I'm an Australian secondary school student (second year of IB at the moment) living in Singapore. I enjoy making things (mostly involving code), running hackathons and learning about random pieces of trivia. Here's what I've been up to recently (from my Scrapbook):

!channel Welcome, welcome…. to Stage 2 of our hike into the redwoods: ⚡D Alrighty, so, what is the *boogie* you may be wondering? We’ll be giving our Scrapbook all the features that it needs to be amazing for club leaders and members. The first stage of that begins today! So here’s what I’m asking from you 💬 in this thread, can you drop any ideas (as wild as you’d like) for features that’d help clubs! (and enjoy the short update video / weekly recap)

GeekcampSG was a bunch of fun @Arash and @ZeyuYao-U03DDMP76GL

Hey everyone! Thought I’d give everyone a small Scrapbook update, featuring custom domains, emoji reactions and sprinkle of streaks :D


Sun, Oct 16

A progress update on how things are shaping up in #scrapbook-dev So many cool new features being added!


Fri, Oct 14

As a follow up to yesterday’s Scrap, I prepared a demo of Berowra for their launch event / call running on the Deta Space! And, I found some real life users of Berowra which was super super cool to see!


Thu, Oct 13

day number 9! there’s a new version of deta space in town and i updated my old Berowra project to work with it :D


Wed, Oct 12

day 8! spent more time planning & brainstorming for #lion-city-hacks-bts. the team & I went to Red Hat's office for a venue tour. it is a magical space, with views of Marina Bay & more. can't wait to spend a day hacking in there.


Tue, Oct 11

my slightly sunburnt self runs through the #epoch-bts & #scrapbook-dev shenanigans I got up to today for day 7 of #10-days-in-public!


Mon, Oct 10

The homepage for #scrapbook-dev was looking… umm, well see for yourself. No where near finished, but gave it a small update and coat of paint! The real purpose behind this was to setup nested data fetching within GraphQL so that we can have the account’s username :D (sidenote: we need you all’s help! check out #scrapbook-dev, there’ll be more issues dropping in there over the week)


Sun, Oct 9

day 5! spent the whole day in JB for a cricket match... but also got up to some assorted things around the match: fully assembled my Sprig (minus the buttons that are in the mail!), did a couple of #scrapbook-dev mini-tasks such as deployment, thought a lot about #epoch-bts & how we create a magical event, and lastly prepared for our venue visit tomorrow for #lion-city-hacks-bts!


Sat, Oct 8

day 4 of #10-days-in-public! double-scrap today! first up, i worked on #scrapbook-dev to add the ability to add it your account. I learnt more about Redwood’s auth implementation and GraphQL directives in RedwoodJS. second up, i made small little Sprig game: editor.sprig.hackclub.com/?file=https://raw.githubusercontent.com/hackclub/sprig/main/games/catch_orpheus.js. was super fun, made it during my workshops at sego lily hacks! also did some more stuff that’s stirring up in #epoch-bts….. join us!


Fri, Oct 7

www-epoch.hackclub.dev <- sketched out a small website concept based on hackclub/draw-dino for #epoch-bts!


Thu, Oct 6

day 2 of #10-days-in-public! slight detour as I attempted to add multiple currencies to donation forms on Hack Club Bank… learnt a ton about Ruby, Rails & how currencies work. going to make my PR soon!


Wed, Oct 5

@Arash & I at the Cloudflare / Supabase meetup in Singapore! Listened to a talk on R2 which will help us with #scrapbook-dev :D


Tue, Oct 4

More RedwoodJS & GraphQL exploration for #scrapbook-dev! Today I was exploring filtering within a query which led me down the rabbit hole of arguments and then resolvers… but here we are. I really feel like the more I try out these small things, the more comfortable I feel with the whole system in general which is fun :D


You seem to have reached the end... show more?
