Developer Spotlights: Monke!

Good morning/evening replers, hope you all are safe and doing fine!

Today we have one more developer spotlight featuring one of the most pog community members - @Codemonkey51


@Codemonkey51's real [REDACTED], and he lives on earth (after coming from mars).

@Codemonkey51 took a few summer camps about python and also learning scratch. He looked up online python runner because he was bored in school. And then he started using it anonymously, and then he made an account, and here we are today. Mr. Monkey claims, "Replit greatly increased my coding skills! It made it much easier and faster to code, allowing me to code on the go, it also introduced me to repl talk which improved my coding skills."


Some of @Codemonkey51's projects are

Edge Detection program - it looks at differences in colors to try to find edges.

I was just walking outside and wondered that if I just checked differences in colors could I detect edges. And so later when I was wondering what to program I just programmed the edge detection.

Replit clone - which allows you to make an html project in the browser (He's working on a better version of this to release soon)

I saw a bunch of them on repl talk at the time and decided I should make one. It was a fun experience, but I could definitely improve it.

Replit Search Engine - it allows you to search sites on replit.

The search engine was inspired by me seeing a bunch of search engines using hard-coded responses, so I set out to make one using a web crawler

Other Info

Recently, @Codemonkey51 hasn't been coding much on repl.it, because he finds vscode easier, but he has been learning about replit internals, and finding exploits.
He has also been working on a special for his 1 year on replit anniversary. Keep an eye out for that too.

Mr. Monkey Man has no message for you apparently, so, this is it.

The End

And that's it for this week's developer spotlight! If you want to be featured in one of these yourself, be sure to post awesome stuff on repl talk and keep an eye out on your discord DMs and e-mail inbox!
Also, if you have any feedback for the spotlights, be sure to put them in the comments section. Any constructive feedback is always appreciated!

Thank you for reading all this. See you all next time with another amazing developer from the community!
