๐Ÿ‘‹ 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) and learning about random pieces of trivia. Here's what I've been up to recently (from my Scrapbook):

D I had a go at figuring out server-side data fetching from an external REST API, though I couldnโ€™t quite figure out the method they outlined in their reference docs with a GraphQL intermediary. Iโ€™ll probably give it another shot tomorrow.

Today, I tried out RedwoodJS for the first (Iโ€™m planning to start using it in a new project!). As I was playing around, I made this small website that housed a collection of dinosaur images! It was interesting messing around with Redwoodโ€™s generators & how Redwood uses Prisma. ๐ŸŒฒ Into the redwoods I go...

โžก๏ธ Hackers, assemble! Because Assemble is now fully _open sourced: !_ Since August 7th, the Assemble team has been writing up everything about Assemble. In the repository, youโ€™ll find around 27,000+ words (thatโ€™s as much as a 100 page book!) outlining the swag at Assemble, the judging system, the visa process & so much more. We want this repository to be a reference for #hackathon-organizers, present & future, if thereโ€™s anything youโ€™d like to see let me know! On a most personal note, looking back on the weekend as I did the final passes on the repository was really touching. Assemble was an incredibly magical weekend & I wanted to say one final thanks to you all for making that happen ๐Ÿ’–. Anyhow, I hope you all enjoy discovering the โ€œbackendโ€ of Assemble in: .

Assembling Assemble (-edition) #3: Finished my final day in Vermont! The big thing I did today was presenting the entire Run of Show to the HQ staff attending, which was almost a full hour of me talking (yikes!). All set and packed to travel to SF in a couple of hours.

Assembling Assemble (-edition) #2: Wrapping up for the day! Got one day left in VT until Assemble. Spent most of the day fixing up things and making sure everything is set to go. Also a lot of emailing! And @deven & I shipped this massive box of fun suppliesโ€ฆ. around 10 kilos of swag, prizes and sharpies :D

Assembling Assemble (-edition) #1: Spent the weekend tying up loose ends on the logistics front, writing more code for Scrapbook @ Assemble (name suggestions, please!) & preparing the ceremonies. Most importantly, however, @deven @benjamin & @kunalbotla are in town so we went around exploring Vermont! It was lovely to talk about the hackathon with everyone (alongside other, slighly less stressful topics) and to get geared up for a jam-packed week.

๐Ÿšข Last week, my Hack Club ran โšกMaker Weekโšก. 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!
