There are many factors that make Zig beautiful: its structure and ambition, its execution, and the way that the community is working together. I’m excited to see where this project is going!
PANE is an innovative and beautiful way to visualize what's happening while you write code. I especially liked seeing the construction of fractals!
Relit is the implementation of relatively recent research into typed literal macros: a generalization of custom literal syntax. (Any new literal type, i.e. regex literals or html literals, can be defined and exported by a library.)
This is my solution to day 3 of Advent of Code 2018 (https://adventofcode.com/2018/day/3).
I was pretty excited about this code, because it maps very cleanly to how I thought about the problem in my head when I sat down to write it. I think it's a great illustration of how nice it can be to solve problems like this in languages with built-in support for multidimensional arrays!
An interactive visualization of the space of Euler spiral segments and their optimal conversion to cubic Béziers.
This blog post really clearly explains a fun concept related to probability and expected value.
Jennifer Wang built a Harry Potter magic wand that uses machine learning to detect gestures. The wand contains an inertial measurement unit (IMU) to sense position & orientation. You can watch her talk on the ML design process and find the code on GitHub.
This is such a useful and simple tool! Use Stencilfy to write text in any font you like, and turn it into a stencil you can cut out on a laser cutter. Read more about it here: https://medium.com/@scientiffic/stencilfy-creating-laser-cutter-friendly-type-b7b8ef1831ec
Beautiful visualization of NYC subway activity over the course of a week.
It explores an interesting way to consume media, and is a great example of what you can get done in a week in an environment like RC.
