  • Day #63

    Team Brazilian housewives coding (Public Lab) — at September 21, 2018 03:36 UTC

    Hey everybody!

    Today we had to review #3357:
    - When typing phrases (with quotation marks), for example 'open call', some of the buttons didn't work
    - Per-type searches were not working
    Both problems were solved!

  • Day 59 - Open Source Libraries, Vue.js workshop

    Team GirlsCode MK (Bahmni) — at September 20, 2018 15:19 UTC


    Eva went to vue.js workshop and has worked remotely. She will update workshop separately. She has been extracting common components in buttons so that this can be reused if the app needs expanding and more buttons need adding.

    Georgina has worked from home. I have been evaluating react tables. After learning how to create a table from scratch and understanding the concepts. I have been looking in more detail at the four choices that Angshu gave for Bahmni. I have contacted our mentor to find out more about what he wants the library to do and the criteria is the ability to deal with large amount of fetched data in region of 100's of records.

    There is also a new design for the table so that the row is clickable. Eva sent a message to clarify once this is clicked on what api will be called. We have both been looking at the logic of this feature.


    Create additional clones to test install of libraries without affecting the existing app

    Continue to work with table, learn more about pagination, sorting, and filtering

    TO DO

    Meeting with mentor Ivo tomorrow.

    Error popup for error on fetch call has now been designed by Konrad and is on the invisionApp.

  • #62

    Team Brazilian housewives coding (Public Lab) — at September 20, 2018 04:37 UTC

    Today we worked on the PR #3357. On that PR:

    1 - We decoupled DocResult from SearchService. Everyone now can use the SearchService endpoints by calling, search_criteria). We moved the DocResult packaging to the api/search.rb Class since this is the one who deals with the API. That's gonna be documented next week :)

    2 - We created a new endpoint for the wikis (old 'pages'). Maybe we can unify them all under a general search_nodes in the future, but that's something for later.

    3 - The new /search page is working and we can filter the Notes and Wikis results from sort_by options. The navbar search and the form on /search use now the same methods. Before the /search was only returning Notes... now the results are consistent. It includes now the static pages as well.

  • Day 56

    Team Akaringular (EBWiki) — at September 19, 2018 19:21 UTC

    Managed to find out why some email previews were not properly rendering. The issue was on elastic search , which was a bit weird because for some of the views it was working.
    In the process we learnt a lot a bout elastic search and how to fix issues concerning elastic search.
    - Spent the afternoon discussing the rspec testing book.
    - We are still waiting on the reviews for the pull requests we have opened then we can proceed.

  • Day 58 - Alexa Skilla

    Team GirlsCode MK (Bahmni) — at September 19, 2018 18:34 UTC


    • Georgina and I both went to London today to attend a beginner friendly workshop on developing Alexa skills (i.e. voice apps). It was a great workshop and so good to hear that they are using Nodejs for their backend (Javascript is the king!). And lots of talk about APIs which we've handled plenty as of late, so I think we both got plenty out of it.
    • I've met up with a ReactJS coach yesterday during the GirlsCode meetup and it was great to talk a bit more about testing, react and react router. He also shared his experience of working with GraphQL - a technology that is often used with ReactJS ("think REST API 2.0", he said). Also, styled components are a thing!
    • I spent a good deal of my day dealing with a Button component (silly Button!), still not there yet, but hopefully, I can finish it up tomorrow
    • I also learned more about conditional rendering in ReactJS - and nested ternary operators - I think destructing and conditional rendering are just about my two favourite things about Javascript (at the moment!).


    • cleaning up CSS
    • finishing up the button component
    • finishing up the display table: including pagination and limiting how many results are displayed at one point. Also dynamic rendering of search results?

    To Do

    • I'm going to London tomorrow afternoon to do a beginner's course on Vue.js and meet the Vue Vixens!
    • meet with coach Ivo
    • create an Alexa skill!

  • Day 57 - Pair Programming, react tables, css code, RGSoC Meetup

    Team GirlsCode MK (Bahmni) — at September 19, 2018 18:19 UTC


    Met up irl at bletchley park. Good session on css styles. Eva shared her way of grabbing the element using the inspect on a browser and right click on the three dots on the relevant line and then click on copy and select copy selector. I think this will save me lots of headaches of css however it still looks ugly. I think I need to change my purist thinking.

    We solved a few problems with the spinner size on the search button and changing the text with search or searching depending on the logic.

    We sent messages on slack to mentor to look at a potential design of a pop up if the fetch api fails, he replied promptly to send message to bahmni group for decision.

    RGSoC meetup - talk on learning mindset. I was very supported by both Annas and it was good to practice. Lesson learnt I need to make sure the toolbar with peoples faces on zoom is at the top of the screen otherwise I naturally look down and then I am not looking at the camera.

    Changed the styling of the 2nd blog post, added another image and added whitespace so markdown worked.


    Keep looking at react tables

    Continue to restyle the button on search form


    TO DO

    Meetup with Ivo

    Finish current story and feedback from mentor

    Check for new designs and feedback in invisionapp

    Team Akaringular (EBWiki) — at September 18, 2018 20:10 UTC

    • With the help of our coach Dan, we had one on one coding session and managed to write a javascript function that gives suggested title from url input value. Having never done javascript before, was a great inspiration, something to consider doing after Ruby on Rails.

    Public Speaking

    • Spoke at a Lunch and Learn
    • Worked on our feature for Exercism

    After weeks of encouragement from our coaches, our mentor Katrina, and random ThoughtWorkers, we signed up to give a presentation at a ThoughWorks, our host company. It would be an opportunity for us to tell everyone about Rails Girl Summer of Code, our project Exercism and what it was like being Rails Girls at ThoughtWorks.

    After signing up, we spent the next four days worrying about what we were going to say, how it would be received and wondered if we would fail miserably. All of our worrying was for nought. Amalia began by talking about the gender imbalance in open source contributors and how Rails Girls Summer of Code started in a effort to ameliorate this problem. She then give a brief history of Exercism and gave a walkthrough on signing up as a user, on using the platform and also how to become a mentor.

    Lori continued by talking about some of the things we worked on this summer on the project and describe the feature we are working on for Exercism. At the end of the talk she described what it was like being a Rails Girls at ThoughtWorks, emphasizing the importance of having a supportive environment when you are entering tech.

    It was a very positive experience. The best part was getting an opportunity to share with the TW community how much we have benefited from having them as a host company, professionally as well as emotionally. Our journey into tech has been a long and interesting path. It was here at TW where we grew. It was also a chance for us to share how important they were to our confidence.

    Our feature
    With our talk behind us we returned to focusing on our feature. Amalia figured out how to use ActiveRecord and wrote the code to display some user data in a view. A perfect ending to another amazing day.
