He was never in time for his classes. . . He wasn't in time for his dinner. . . Then one day. . . he wasn't in his time at all.— Back to the Future, 1985
I recently took part in UofTHacks VIII which is the University of Toronto's annual hackathon. Over the span of a month leading up to the hackathon, I was trying to figure out what to make. After being faced with the same annoyance time and time again, an idea came to me: I should make a program that allows for ease of tracking virtual meetings. Never again would I have to trudge through 15 different submenus in order to find the link to my Zoom lecture.
I decided to use Processing as I have in the past but in the Java mode as opposed to Python. This did present some challenges as I was not used to the differences between typical Java and Processing's variation of it (some hair may have been lost over the file writing not working at the very end because of this).
Although I unfortunately did not win, I am proud of what I made. Here is the link to my submission for the hackathon! Please check out the video there or linked below to see the program at work and, if you want to give it a try, see the GitHub repository below:
