hehe it’s like 1AM when I’m writing this soz I don’t have time to center this slide presentation on the website :DDD
Let’s get started with some hacking! My sincerest apologies (JP writing this!), but the website is a little under construction. Since literally yesterday the website was rebuilt using a web framework called Jekyll, and now the website is way easier to edit and maintain, but development is still needed to complete the new styles, page layouts, backfill content from previous Hack Club meetings, etc. Check back soon (like really soon), and the website should be changing almost weekly with new content!
Each Hack Club meeting is going to be directed by you! After you heard us drone on with the slide presentation for hopefully not too long, the rest of the time is up to you to hack and create cool stuff!
Sprig is a game console that you can develop for made by hack clubbers, for hack clubbers.
You can draw, make music, and craft games in a web-based editor. If you build an original game, Hack Club HQ will send you a Sprig kit for free!
Today, you’re going to:
Extensions: Welcome to the extensions section! At the end of 15 minutes, you should have a working Sprig game (possibly through Level 6 of the instructions)! Now, it’s time to make this game your own!
The more unique the better! You must have a unique game to be able to recieve a physical sprig from Hack Club.
Name your game
Add the following comment.
/* @title: your_game @author: your name */
Ship to the rest of P2P Hack Club: Select “file”, “share”, then “as link”. A link to your code should now be copied to your clipboard. Upload your link to the Google Classroom assignment! Remember that if you change your project, you should generate a new link.
All of the ships posted to the Google Classroom will be added to this website in a gallery by the next meeting, so that others can see and play your game! By the end of the year, we can fill up p2phack.club with really cool projects!
If you want to ship your game to the world (and be eligible for a free Sprig in your mailbox): Follow the instructions at https://sprig.hackclub.com/share.
If you made it here, you are tough enough to survive squid game. Seriously, you are amazing!
Thank you all for coming to this meeting! We’re so excited to see what you build this year!
