Tell us about your side projects!

Hey CodeLand!

Throughout your experience at this year's event, we hope you get a chance to explore CodeNewbie Community on your own a bit and engage in some discussions. You can even start one of your own using this template (or by starting a new post and adding the #discuss tag).

This thread is part of an ongoing series of discussions before and during CodeLand 2022. Each post in the CodeLand 2022 Discussions series will be part of a special prize raffle after the event concludes. In other words you'll be automatically entered into a prize raffle just for commenting on this post before 11:59 PM PT on Friday, June 17, 2022.

In the thread below, tell us about your side projects! What are you working on? What ideas do you have for your next project? Did you buy that domain already?! etc.

My favorite silly little side project is a Twitter bot I made called @ICanHazHugzPlz that gives out free hugs!

I am trying to buy my very first domain but there are still problems with NS1 - bummer.

I am currently working on a design system for my personal brand. A "side project" now, but hopefully much more in the next few months.

Currently, I'm redesigning the repository website named "Awesome Web Monetization". With the participation of Netlify for providing me the open source plan, I'm changing all the code based on VueJS and Vite. With SCSS as a bonus !

You can see the WIP website here and the repository ✨☕

I have just finished a project for my portfolio class called Halo Fakepoint. For any Halo players, if you are familiar with Halo Waypoint, it is a smaller scale mock of that website. It is a MERN stack application. It accesses the Halo API for primary game data. The database holds user/account data and their friends they add to a friends list on the website. There is more work to be done like creating a fully functional sign in/sign up. The friends list and user are separate collections so I need to structure the user collection to include the friends list so it is different for each user. Trying to make these changes/additions to go live with it and see real people use it.

I'm working on launching my YouTube channel. That's why I haven't posted much here on DEV and CodeNewbie. It is close to being ready to launch. Coding wise, I'm planning on building my own wedding website. I got engaged last month so I've been looking into how I could build my own wedding website.

My one side project I have is WordGoal, which is a calculator for authors to track their pace on their current novel. My wife self-publishes novels and it helps her to push a little further in her days to write just a little more so she can see the projected "days left" based on her progress.

I've only completed 1 project (a program that semi-automated 2 different performance reports). I'm currently working on a group project to develop a program to help with public health decision making, using scikitlearn. Really enjoying learning more about machine learning within the project. My reflection on undertaking projects is for me personally, I have found I've learnt so much more by solving all the associated problems with a "real" project, compared to lots and lots of tutorials.

I'm working on developing a eye disease predicting mobile application for eye patients using machine learning and AI related technologies. It contains 4 main features to produce the high accuracy on predicting the disease and tracking the disease since the some eye diseases are leading to vision loss. It gives warnings and reminders to the patients in daily basis.

Building out an in-depth deck builder and collection logger for Magic the Gathering, if you are interested or want to try it out feel free to reach out to me on Discord at Starfox64_0 #6082.

Been working on it on and off for about 8 months now, built using the MERN stack, had to implement Node Streaming, have a rudimentary Friend System implemented using hashed friend codes (think Nintendo Switch friend code style) among other things done or planned.

My side project is a venture I'm starting with a group of friends from my bootcamp, which is an anime straming and ecommerce platform. We hope to launch this project on the web at the end of the month, and start a community from it.

Working on a comic book app that tracks all the Marvel, DC and other comic heroes, generates stats, create your own hero, and eventually run AI predicted fights and updates on stats, story, etc. Planning on doing this using MAUI, AZ Cog services, and whatever comes up during planning

I have been gathering resources for a blog about digital literacy, which is an area of growth for the Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector here in Australia. Specifically, the addition of a Digital Literacy Skills Framework to the already established Australian Core Skills Framework.

I'm still debating whether to use Blogger, Tumblr, Wordpress or just take the plunge and make my own blog from scratch.

I recently made this free side project to connect early-stage developers with qualified volunteer mentors.

It's part of my ongoing research to find or make solutions for challenges in the developer community.

What do you think of this rhyming domain? 😅

I've been getting into the AI art generators recently and it's taught me a lot about machine learning!

The Disco Diffusion notebook is a great place to start and the community is very active. The notebook can generate a picture or a series of pictures based on a text prompt. It can make coherent videos (latest update adds more functionality with using an init video as an added prompt) and with a bit of practice and research I've made some really cool stuff 😎

I am currently working on an EPL players search engine. Basically it just sumarizes player information obtained by scraping EPL website.
It is meant to be a portfolio project.

Having 2 for now:

  • radio listening page (rebuild it)
  • internal server monitoring system

Possibly both in Python, as I am still looking up for technologies usable for radio listening page.
