Hey there guys, its your main man Mr. Andrew Lester and I’m excited
to bring you the first edition of APC’s nationally syndicated
RESOURCE COMPENDIUM (make bold). Today we’ve put
together a few articles about what this wacky thing we call
“"”computer science””” actually is, what coding means and a fun
little test about how you’ve interacted with FCCPS’ information
technology. This compendium entry is on schoology, but future ones
will be on the official APC Website.
Reminder our first meeting is
next Friday (9/25/20) at 11am. If you don’t show up I will be
incredibly disappointed, and perhaps even saddened.
Kanye Fun Fact #1: Kanye used to code video games in middle school! If he can do it, so can you! Stay tuned for future kanye fun facts in our entries, this is a teaser.
REMEMBER WE HAVE OUR FIRST MEETING TODAY AT 11AM. If you don’t show up, it is with a heavy heart and misty eyes that I will tell you that you are personally responsible for Andrew’s disappointment and sadness. You monster.
ayo ppl its Jonathan Aimison Oppenheimer with the APC’s second weekly compendium. Due to the APC’s incredible work ethic, complete mastery of website development and quick production schedules, we failed to do literally any work at all on the website. This means the statement in our prior update, indicating future compendium entries would be on our website, was a complete and utter fabrication.
This week I’ve got some introductory resources to HTML and CSS (the tools we use very well and quickly to make the APC website) and of course the second Kanye fact.
The Second Kanye Fact™ - did you know on september 15th, kanye west started talking about how egregious the contracts that major labels place on young individuals are, and was infuriated by this. on september 16th, a day later, he proceeded to tweet out each page of his contracts, but not before failing to do that, by accidentally tweeting out the file name instead of the actual file. later on in the day, he tweeted a video of him engaging in questionable actions upon a grammy award (serves them right for the amount of snubs they’ve given out especially in 2013), and then got banned from twitter for 12 hours for revealing personal information about a white supremacist.

COMPENDIUM ENTRY #3 - 2nd October 2020
today’s update is super special because it is coming at [insert time] rather than 8am not because we forgot entirely but because we wanted to surprise you. surprise! This is the first update that will be accessible from https://apc-gm.com/compendium, a place where you can view all our compendiums, constantly updated, for the entire year. to put that page together in such short notice, we employed advanced coding tactics such as “googling what we wanted to do” and “shamelessly copying and pasting it.” revisions will come in time, but they’ll always be at https://apc-gm.com/compendium
details about another meeting coming soon™️
In preparation for our next meeting, (if you’re interested in coming!), please download Visual Studio Code and set up a GitHub account.
Kanye fun fact #3: kanye doesn’t like water bottles. in fact he hates them, especially on airplanes when they just show up.
COMPENDIUM ENTRY #4 - 16th October 2020
Hey everyone. it’s andrew for today.
Please remember that we have a meeting today at 11am – we’ll be going over how to set-up Github accounts and Visual Studio Code installations to get you all set up to start actually programming (only 7 months into the club tbf)
Additionally, the APC recently has been presented the opportunity to have a guest speaker, Timothy B. Lee, the senior tech policy reporter at ArsTechnica. Would you be interested in having him come speak to the club during one of our meetings? Answer the poll!
Lastly, here’s today’s edition of the resource compendium: https://apc-gm.com/compendium
Kanye fun fact #4: kanye feels that although some emojis are not used as often, they should all be respected and loved.
COMPENDIUM ENTRY #5 - 29th October 2020
⚠️ SLIGHTLY SERIOUS UPDATE ALERT ⚠️
Hey guys unfortunately I can’t open this update with “que es bueno mis compadres” because it’s supposed to be serious which kinda sucks.
I wanted to let you all know that based on the results of our last poll, we have decided to move forward with bringing in Mr. Timothy B. Lee as a guest speaker. He will be speaking to the club on November 20th at 11am, and we’d really love it if you guys would come — both because it’ll actually be fairly interesting (definitely more interesting than listening to me speak) and because he’s taking time out of his day to come talk to us.
We’ll include some of his work in our compendiums until his talk and will keep reminding you of his visit — it’s also viewable on our calendar.
Kanye fun fact #5: kanye believes that God put him on earth to be the president of the United States of America - “I believe that my calling is to be the leader of the free world, it was something that god put on my heart back in 2015,” as he stated in an incomprehensible interview with Joe Rogan.
COMPENDIUM ENTRY #6 - 13th November 2020
⚠️⚠️⚠️ IMPORTANT UPDATE ALERT - READ ⚠️⚠️⚠️
Hi APC - please remember that next Friday at 11:00am (11/20/20) is when Mr. Timothy Lee will be coming and speaking to us. We highly encourage you to come to this meeting — as we said before, Mr. Lee is taking time out of his day to come speak to us so we’d really like to give him a decent turnout. Please use the poll below to indicate whether you plan on attending (saying yes > saying no > not replying at all). There will not be a meeting today, but as always the compendium is linked below.
Thank you all,
