Congratulations, September cohort!
Chief Alchemist Marty Nelson admired how this group of software developers embraced a high degree of fearlessness, saying, "They have the ability as developers to not shy away from tough problems or issues, and to look at learning a technology as an opportunity to be curious and try new things."
"I saw that exploration on full display with the range of technologies they used in these projects. One team used Reactronica, a react-based implementation of Tone.js to allow users to create multi-channel music mixes. Another group created a Tamagotchi clone with a natural language processing service pet chat feature. And another created a GitHub OAuth-driven yearbook that allows Alchemy grads to share memories and stay in touch with their cohort mates!"
Geo Tone is a full-stack browser-based audio sequencer built using React, Reactronica (from Tone.js), CSS3, Framer Motion, PostgreSQL and Express. Geo Tone exists to make music fun - letting new-to-synth users experiment with customized audio effects. On the frontend, user data is hashed and encrypted; on the backend, data is managed in SQL.
Alchemy students and alumni can use this creative yearbook to easily connect with the expansive alumni network. Using GitHub OAuth to sign in, editable profiles include a picture, a senior quote, and the current employer along with links to GitHub and LinkedIn profiles. People can also access a private memorybook which will be a collaborative sandbox to upload media and share memories.
Pixl 2 is an reimagining and refactor of the PIXL app (created earlier in their cohort, in November 2021). The team used React v18, React router v6, Express, PostgreSQL and Github OAuth. In the app people can create and edit pixel art using various tools, and save it to a custom database to show off to anyone who is interested!
Let's Go™, is a one-stop shop for planning, coordinating, and timing a successful trip with loved ones or those who mainly communicate online.
This three-person team created Resourcery to be a widely accessible mutual-aid web-application. People can use it to easily find or post free or donated items using maps.
Rooted in Tamagotchi nostalgia, Gotchi BB is an online digital pixel pet that adds natural language processing so people can "chat" with their pet friend! You can also feed, clean, and play with your Gotchi BB. The amount of times one interacts with their pet (feeding, petting, or playing) adds to an overall happiness score that is then ranked on a site leaderboard.
