What a great experience I had visiting Pandora. Pandora open their doors for Hack The Hood. I had a great experience because I’ve never been there and I use Pandora a lot. It was cool learning all about of the different types of work at Pandora, meeting people who do that work and learning what they do in order keep the company running. I also learned that in Pandora you can submit your own song and don’t need to have a big record deal. I think this is really cool because then unknown artists can get their music heard.
The process of making our maze game was an very interesting experience. As the designer and programmer it was difficult at first, but when you get the hang out it, it gets easier. It was very time consuming, and frustrating because you have to keep track of making and naming each image. -Tearra
As the designer I was the one who made the logo which was very easy. But you have to be very creative. Knowing that this was a group challenge I tried to come up with something that the group would like. -Estalin
As the writer I wrote all text that appeared in the game which wasn’t much, because the game was so simple. I also came up with the name aMAZEing for the name of the game. -Marshayla
As the manager I made sure everyone was doing their roles. I would check and put my opinion, and check in to make sure everyone is doing their work. -Jose
As the tester I would text the game to make sure there wasn't any glitches. I would also try to help where needed. -David
How has Hack the Hood impacted my life. Well since the first day that I got here I knew that was going to be an experience for me. I got to meet an amazing group of people that I worked with the past six weeks. The instructors were awesome the way they taught us the way to developed site for a client. The fact that we are able to walk out of this Intern with a free chromebook. Knowing that school start the week after we can mention to our friend about Hack the Hood. Meeting with my clients impacted me because it was something new to me and after all it went great and they like the way I designed their own website.
Although this game looks like any little kid can play, well it is, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes features an original story crossing the entire Marvel Universe. Players take control of Iron Man, Spider Man, the Hulk, Captain America, Wolverine and many more Marvel characters as they unite to stop Loki and a host of other Marvel villains from assembling a super-weapon capable of destroying the world. The game takes you through a lot of challenges. I play this game with my little brother and we spend more than twenty minutes on every checkpoint trying to pass to the next checkpoint.
My favorite module so far has been Module 5, Mic Check & Public Speaking. It might not sound like a lot of but this module helped me at public speaking and and the way to speak to your audience. Furthermore, connecting with the audience can be a great reminder that you have valuable insights and opinions to share with the world. Public speaking engagements are great places to meet new social and professional contacts. If you would like to change the world, remember--public speaking is an effective platform for spreading revolutionary ideas. Overcoming the fears and insecurities that accompany public speaking is empowering.
What would be the first video I would ever wear? That’s a very interesting question. Well the first video I would ever wear would have to be about Computer Engineer. The video that I choose is about Microsoft Ventures and I choose that video because that is one of the places that I would like to work in. If you have a dream you shouldn’t let it die. Instead you should proceed your dreams.
