🗓️ Events

Some of the experiences I've had this month. Learned a lot!


During my first ever hackathon, me and my team had to think of a problem that could be solved with AI and then design a solution. Check out this pitch of me explaining our idea.

Mock UI

As part of the hackathon, me and my team also created a mock UI on a Google Slides that would closely represent what our application would actually be like. Feel free to explore it.

Hyperloop One Fireside Chat

Learned so much from this talk with Hyperloop One Product Manager Matt Shah. The future for this company looks promising, and I can't wait to see what they develop. Shoutout to Ethan Wei for moderating it!

🍂 November's Plan

My goals/focuses for the next month to come. Hopefully it all goes well!


Objective: Finish the course, and write about my takeaways (aiming for 2 articles)


Objective: Create some videos on the new things I've been learning (aiming for 3)


Objective: Meet people who share similar interest as me to explore their thoughts

Well, that's it for this month. I hope you learned something, or got some insight on my journey. Next month will hopefully be even better, and I hope I can achieve all my goals. Talk to you soon guys!
