- My role was the manager. I was in charge of what all of our roles were and how we stayed on task. It was fun working together we all were on task except for one, but we got through it. Everyone knew what they were supposed to do, and we got everything done especially in a small amount of time.
- My role in the team was to be the designer, I was responsible for making the logo which was pretty exciting. I had some struggle in the beginning because I was confused about how to customize the logo. I picked up some images off from Google and I messed around with them on Google Drawing. Everyone loved the logo, it brought so much personality to the app. I also helped around on designing the app, and had a great time collaborating with the group.
Wait wait wait… So you are telling me we can be playing soccer right now with ROCKET POWERED CARS!?! What is this madness and how can i get my hands on it! Well look no further than your playstation store or steam store page because I welcome you to the future of ESports gaming… Rocket League!
Rocket League is the long awaited, 2008 physics-based sequel to the beloved arena classic, Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars! Developed and published by Psyonix, the game is currently available for both PC and Playstation 4. With the game only being in its third week of being live (at the time of this blog being written), Rocket League’s server has been hit with the overwhelming support from the players so badly that the first week the game was live, you were unable to play an online match! The support for the game is still going strong with the announcement via Rocket League’s official twitter, the game has been downloaded over 4 million times for PS4 & PC. 4 million downloads in just 2 weeks is insane! But how is the gameplay you may ask?
It’s always tough to think about yourself and write it down. I mean I’m having a real tough time trying to come up with my personal statement for college. But from all the tips and tricks I've learned from college readiness classes, you have to sell yourself… and no internet I’m not talking about selling your body for science, I’m talking about selling your brand.
Here at Hack the Hood, our first week introduced us to presentations known as modules. What these modules did for us was gave us a better understanding of the technology industry. One of the modules was the creation of your own brand. Personally that’s one of the toughest creations but the most fun. I mean you are creating yourself/ monitoring your life for business purposes. Since the surge of social media, being found by companies has become easier. If you look at the boss's perspective, would you really want to hire a man or women that is unprofessional and probably doing illegal things? No, you wouldn’t want to have controversy around you and your business. To me, this is a life changing thing. What if someone realizes that their drinking habit is getting in the way of them finding a well-paying job? That's what creating a brand does for you in my opinion. It could change a person's life for the better. Social media is so powerful, I can turn a nobody into a somebody. Be wise out there in the internet… there be rough waters out there.
Hello people of the Internet! Have you ever wanted to wear a video!? Yes, yes a video! Ever wanted to put your favorite gif (not jif >.>) on a t-shirt!? Well now you can! Presenting picpocket’s latest innovation, wearable videos! Now don’t get me wrong, it sounds a little silly, but how badass would it be to have a t-shirt that has a freaking video playing on it as the print. For example, I am a huge WWE fan and lately I’ve seen t-shirts that have the print of Randy Orton doing his finishing move the RKO on a random person. Lately his move has become an huge internet meme! I would personally choose the best rko he has ever done and just have that sucker on repeat!
This is your Kaptain signing off.. Vast water are ahead of us.
Hello people of the Internet! Welcome to the place where me, Marc Lopez, will be ranting, whining, praising, and just overall being myself on here! As per usual, let me introduce myself. I grew up in the beautiful city known as San Francisco and I currently live in Richmond, California. I am a senior at John F. Kennedy high school (Class of 2016 what’s up!) here in Richmond. I play baseball and football for the school and I couldn’t be any happier about doing so.
Sports is what makes me… me! I grew up in family and culture that is completely all about baseball. Been watching and representing the San Francisco Giants for as long as I can remember, same goes for football. Every sunday I would here my dad yell at the TV for a blown call from the refs against the Forty-Niners. But whenever that happened when I was younger, I would sit in my little corner with a gamecube plugged into one of my parents TV just trying my best to beat Super Mario Sunshine. The gaming industry has been around me for as long as I can remember and I am loving every last minute of the industry.
Now I joined Hack the Hood via my academy’s director over at Kennedy high school. I was excited overall because earlier in the year it seemed like my summer was going to be a giant waste. At first I was completely unaware of what the program was going to be entirely! I was just told that it was going to be involving web design and that it was going to be paid. From what we have already learned here at the Hack the Hood program, I am expanding my knowledge of how to be a great web designer and hopefully get to show off these teachings in my next academy class at my school.
Together we fight these rough seas known as our lives. There’s a lot of things out there. But your Kaptain will be here to guide you through it.
We are a group of students focused on web design and development. This blog will give you a peek into our creative nest located in Richmond, CA.
