Set up a Personal GitHub Pages
A Personal GitHub page allows other folks to learn about you and what you’re passionate about, gives you an opportunity to show off all the amazing things you’ve made, and can be used as an online resume!
Learn about Open Source
So many code bases are available for you to use and contribute to for free! Use open source code to build or repurpose a project of your own. Be sure to correctly attribute the open source code.
Create a Movie Recommender
I’m always on the search for a good movie recommendation, and my guess is you are too. Build a bot, web app, or any sort of project that can recommend a movie. Maybe you base the users recommendations off of emotion, a random set of questions, or even the time of day.
Morse Code Translator
Build a project that can translate morse code! I thought about giving you the spot to submit in morse code, but here it is in plain text: Day 2 Devpost.
Hand Gesture Game
Utilizing image recognition, create a game that only uses hand gestures! Maybe you make a version of pong controlled in your webcam, a new chrome dino that requires the user to wave in order to jump, or anything else you dream up!
Learn about Augmented Reality
The Pokemon GO craze may have passed, but augmented reality is here to stay. Create any AR project, incorporate it into an existing hack of yours, or simply read up about augmented reality.
Learn what your Carbon Emissions are
Create a project to track carbon emissions of a particular person, company, industry, or action.
