What is a Guild? How can I be a part of it?
One of the best parts of our community is that it allows people to meet and make connections with others, regardless of where you live. guilds are smaller communities within Local Hack Day. Whether you come in with a guild or not, you won’t be hacking alone.
Explore Artificial Intelligence
We see weekend over weekend that hackers are eager to learn more about AI. For this challenge, just explore the topic and see what you can learn. You can watch tutorials, follow guides, or build projects - it’s totally up to you and as long as you learn something about buzzword topics, it counts!
Use a Weather API
Weather APIs are a great way to add a level of automation to your project. Ideas include an alarm clock to tell you the weather in the morning, create an application that picks out your commute based on the weather, or predicts the best days to get outside for a run
Create an Authorization System
As I’m sure you know, keeping your projects safe is extremely important. Incorporate an authorization system into a project - this could for all users or an even just an admin panel. OAuth is a great place to start here.
Create a Kanban Board
Ever feel overwhelmed by the amount of tasks you need to complete? Having your own way to visualize them can help organize your tasks and increase your productivity!
Redesign a physical product you use
Imagine a new branding concept for a brand you use and create it on any platform or medium you’d like!
Use Computer Vision
What if your garbage can could sort your recycling and compost out for you? Build a project that uses computer vision to accomplish a task. Maybe your hack analyzes garbage and sorts it into its respective kind.
