My 2022: a year of building

A lot of stuff happened in my year '22 in terms of coding!

Here's a summary of the projects that saw the light during 2022.

NFTsAsGifts presentation for DeveloperDAO
๐Ÿ”ฅย First time I present a side project for an audience full of developers!
๐Ÿ˜ญย Thanks @narb_s and @with-heart for treating me so well
๐Ÿ‘€ Recording of the presentation โ†’ here!
โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿ”ฅ If you watch the video: I hope it can inspire you, and lmk if you want to know more!
๐ŸŽซ Simple app that lets you build a Twitter banner with your POAPs
๐Ÿง  Did this project with my friend Don to help him learn ReactJS. It had some cool parts, like the POAP API, downloading assets, and using HTMLCanvas to generate the banner
๐Ÿ‘€ For some time it got a lot of traction
Piano Password Coding Session
๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป Open coding session at BlossomDAO's Discord VC with Vanes
๐ŸŽน We coded a piano password website, to practice JS and CSS. it was so much fun!
๐Ÿ’ฃ That day i met Justus. That day was huge! I should do that more often
Women Of Crypto
๐Ÿš€ In 3 intense weeks, launched this NFT collection + minting website with @0xShynn and @DonFungible
๐Ÿค‘ย Sold out in 12 hours!!! It made 1.7K ETH ($4.8M USD back then) in sales that night, Feb 3rd
๐Ÿง ย Learned: allow lists, merkle trees, solidity unit testing, test coverage, metadata, pre-reveal, smart contract audit, and so much more!
๐Ÿ“Š I also made a custom dashboard (like a fancy Etherscan) to track the mints real-time, with sounds + discord bot notifications. It was so fun to use it on that magical day!
๐Ÿ’ฃ During the sale day, extremely high traffic affected the database, and problems were solved on-site real-time. it was frantic, crazy, unrealโ€ฆ but we did it!!!
๐Ÿ™ƒ Craziest night of my life, for sure!
Fugly Forest
๐ŸŒณย @0xShynn, @DonFungible, and me built a full website + contracts for a web3 social experiment around "funny & ugly" trees.
๐Ÿ˜ฟย Unfortunately, this project wasnโ€™t finally launched.
๐Ÿงชย For a couple of months, we built a game into the smart contract, applying rules to future NFT transfers, creating a fun war game with different prizes and motivations
๐Ÿง ย I discovered my passion for solidity unit testing! I made like 120 different test cases, with 100% coverage and all! It was so much fun!!
Kevin Crypto Punks
๐Ÿธ The Pixelmon Kevin was a trend, and we helped an artist launching an NFT collection around it ย 
๐Ÿš€ We built it all in less than a week, super simple and sweet!
๐Ÿ™ƒย If fail to succeed. It had no marketing/followers.. It was an attempt at something trendy. You never know!
โœ…ย The website and the contracts were perfect tho! (but no one will know)
๐Ÿง ย At this point we became very familiar with ERC721A, and we loved every minute of it!
๐Ÿ“บโš”๏ธ๐Ÿฑ๐ŸŽŒ๐Ÿ‘น NFT project with japanese animal manga-related theme ย 
๐Ÿง  Worked really hard on lots of details of the website! Smooth transitions. Cool minting experience. And using custom solidity errors for the first time!
๐Ÿ“• After the mint, holders have been voting on the storyline of a set of manga chapters
๐Ÿ“‰ Sales weren't as good as expected. Bear market was real. Lots of learning here
๐Ÿค”...๐Ÿ’ฐโ†’๐Ÿ––๐ŸŒโ†’๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ’ธ Can a smart contract split whatever income it receives? Yes!!
๐Ÿ’ก๐Ÿคฏ Suddenly I saw lots of possible use cases for something like this
๐Ÿงช I wanted to test it. It worked! Made a landing page for it. Had a lot of fun.
๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ I built it in 3 days. Then i saw that 0xSplits is probably much better. Moved on. Next!
๐Ÿง  I learned a lot about "Solidity Receive Functions" and also how to let users deploy new contracts from the frontend using their wallets, with no hardhat deploy involved!
Who Eth Dis?
๐Ÿ‘€ So many things on-chain are public...
โ“ Why not making a place to compile everything public about ETH wallets?
๐Ÿ—๏ธ Fun project to practice frontend + lots public APIs
๐Ÿ˜ฟ No one used it, and i abandoned it to move on to other things
๐ŸงŠ Part of my summer was spent learning threeJS with BrunoSimon
๐Ÿธ I noticed that everything is more fun using Pepes
๐Ÿธ๐Ÿธ So i added lots of pepes and other memes around this basic FPV shooter
๐Ÿ˜ฟ No one used it, and i abandoned it to move on to other things
Doom Scrolls
๐Ÿ–ผ๏ธ NFT contracts + website made with @0xShynn and @DonFungible.
๐Ÿ•น๏ธ This website like an adventure game. Fun wassie-related minting experience.
๐Ÿง  I learned to integrate wagmi at a very pro level here. Also implemented burning-to-mint.
๐Ÿ˜ฟ The project did not sell as expected. But all the time building it, the whole journey, was really good.
AI Therapist
๐Ÿง  In October I started fucking around with OpenAI API
๐Ÿ—จ๏ธ I made a conversational interface to use GPT3 as a therapist (what could go wrong?)
๐Ÿ˜ฑ This was before ChatGPT existed!! ๐Ÿ˜†
๐Ÿ† I had lots of fun building the UI and asking crazy things to davinci. Cool experience. But please don't use it, ChatGPT is so much better!!
Rafi Lounge
๐Ÿ˜Ž Don and I made a website + contracts for a fancy Lounge in Malibu California! โ›ฑ๏ธ
๐Ÿง  Sales weren't good, but my game on the frontend reached new heights, also included Credit Card payments using Winter.
Ocean Park
๐Ÿซ˜ For Azuki lovers, we built an online store of custom shirts for your Beanz!
โœจ Lots of details, from Figma to the website, lots of love and effort behind this project
Smol Coders
๐Ÿง‘โ€๐ŸŽจ I fell in love with Midjourney and I started creating thousands of cute animals using computers
๐Ÿ—๏ธ I made the contract + website + tweets for an NFT collection to raise money for LaptopDAO
๐Ÿ’ธ All royalties (10% of each secondary sale) is going to LaptopDAO
๐Ÿคฏ It sold out in less than a minute! Thanks for everyone who made it happen!
๐Ÿค‘ So far (1 month) the project made 0.9 ETH!! We will buy 4 laptops with that money. Insane! I still can't believe it
