Foldable/Dual-Screen Form Factors
Tech for Social Good
Need help thinking of a final project idea? Sign up for the Social Impact Brainstorming Workshop to brainstorm ideas that solve real problems. Come in with a particular interest, and we’ll walk you through all the steps to narrow that down to a specific idea. Sign up here!
Collaboration and Version Control with Git
Have you wondered how you might work with your final project team without all sitting at the same device and taking turns typing code? Have you ever created a
Backup_4.zip as you worked on a problem set to ensure you have a working version to revert to if you messed things up? Ever landed on a GitHub repository and had no idea how to download the files? Join us to learn how the pros handle these situations using an incredibly powerful command-line tool called Git!
Developing Your Project Locally with VS Code
Join us to learn how use VS Code locally (and offline!) on your own computer, unlocking new development possibilities! We’ll walk you through how to create your own development environment with Python, SQLite, and more, so that you can work with some of the most common technologies used in CS50 final projects.
Making Small-Scale 2D Games with LÖVE 2D and Lua
Have you ever wanted to know how to create 2D games for profit or pleasure? In this one-hour session, you will learn (a) how to design a small-scope game that can be created within fourteen days, (b) how to get started using the LÖVE 2D framework to create your 2D game, and (c) how to avoid the three landmines of small-scope game design. For less comfortable and more comfortable programmers alike, this session will help you see the overarching steps to creating your 2d game.
React Native for iOS App Development
What do apps like Facebook, Instagram, Discord, and Skype have in common? They were all developed with React Native! If you’re interested in making an iOS app for your final project, this is a seminar you won’t want to miss. HSA DEV Managing Director Paul Song and HSA DEV Software Engineer Catherine Deskur will introduce you to the basics of creating, styling, and debugging a React Native iOS app.
Introduction to Machine Learning
Interested in applying machine learning in your CS50 Final Project? We are hosting a seminar to give a brief overview of machine learning, implementations of machine learning models in Python, and finding good datasets for your ML model! Look forward to seeing you in our seminar soon!
