Too many things in computing are invisible.
Bugs linger for years because nobody can see their effects. We run arcane command line tools just to find out what port a program is using. Your computer is full of helpful information, but no one can use it until someone makes it visible.
So for this jam, make it visible. Maybe it's a data structure in your program. Maybe it's some obscure metrics from your operating system. Maybe it's your sleep schedule. Whether you make a Graphviz diagram or an experimental code editor, you have a weekend to make it happen.
Now that the jam is over, see which projects stood out. Full post ➜
A recipe for finding bugs:— Jamie Brandon (@sc13ts) December 8, 2022
* predict what the data should look like
* render the data
* be surprised and confused
potential dream that we could make visible various graph structures that have been hiding in our computer all along— Omar Rizwan (@rsnous) November 25, 2022
The jam takes place from Friday, April 14 through Sunday, April 16. Here's how you can participate:
Pick something to visualize! If you want, you can brainstorm ideas in #jam on Discord. You can also use this time to form a team - or you can choose to work solo.
Create a Handmade Network project. This project will act as your submission and can be used to share your work in progress. Then get started! Share screenshots and videos in #project-showcase on Discord, or directly from your project page.
Your Handmade Network project is your submission. Fill out the project description, making sure to explain the goals of the project and what inspired you to visualize it. Include plenty of pictures and videos!
Submissions are now closed.
We will not be declaring winners, but we will publicly highlight some of our favorite entries after the jam.
Your Handmade Network project is your submission. We will be looking at the project's description and any extra updates you share toward the end of the jam.
