  • Day 84

    DV Team (LivingStyleGuide) [2018] — at October 3, 2018 09:29 UTC

    DV Team

    We want to thank all of our mentors, supervisors, the RgSoc Team, RgSoc community and RgSOC sponsors for this extremely valuable experience. We are extremely sad that RGSoC has ended, but we are not. Instead, we decided to continue contribution to LivingStyleGuide/ PIMD until the Minimal Viable Product is ready for launch.
    Violeta is taking another week to finish some ongoing issues. Diana is taking another two weeks to finish some issues.

    RgSoc organization, thank you for all of your hard work, and for including us in this life-changing project. It has been quite a roller coaster experience to combine a full-time job with a part-time team membership for Rails Girls Summer of Code and a family, but one thing is for sure. Our lives will never be the same after this Summer of Code. We will keep preparing ourselves into coding and hope to launch a job in the Tech world someday sooner or later in Barcelona.

    We are going to miss you all!❀️

    - Tuesday 2nd of October: Meeting with coach Christina to discuss changes issue 3 and 17.
    - Wednesday 3rd of October: Meeting with Nico (code project) and Tobi to discuss existing codes and further steps.

  • Day 60: It's a wrap!

    Team DelSquared [2018] — at October 2, 2018 17:42 UTC

    Hi All!

    We're yet to have our final team call but RGSoC '18 was an amazing experience for us. We look back to a lot of wonderful memories as we write our last status update today. We hope to remain a part of the community and keep doing our bit.

    Over and out!
    Team DelSquared!

  • Day 55-59 (Sept 24 - Sept 28)

    Team DelSquared [2018] — at October 2, 2018 17:41 UTC

    Hi All!

    We had a few things to look into, regarding the hardware implementation of the documented examples. Meanwhile, we were working on the two approaches regarding I2C implementation as suggested by our mentors. We hope to wrap up the issue soon as we're quite close to figuring it out. We also had our final phone call with Kelsey.

    Till we meet again,

  • Day 50-54 (Sept 17 - Sept 21)

    Team DelSquared [2018] — at October 2, 2018 17:36 UTC

    Hi All!

    This was the week when we were having our mid-semester examinations and the progress was painfully slow. But, we were introduced to another approach for I2C implementation by our mentor, Kelsey and we tried working on that as well. We also submitted our second blog post.

    Till we meet again,

  • Last Day!

    Team $we init (Probot: build your own GitHub app(s)) [2018] — at September 29, 2018 17:10 UTC

    Can't believe RGSoC came to an end!
    It was an amazing journey with Probot and all our mentors and coaches.
    We learned a lot.
    Our 2 bots : 'first-timers-only-app' and 'enforce-template-app' helped us gain a lot of experience working with javascript and node.js .
    We will miss our team and these amazing summers.
    We would continue contributing to Probot .
    Until next time!

  • Day 65 - NavBar navigation, update readme file, final mentor meeting, lots of emotion!!

    Team GirlsCode MK (Bahmni) [2018] — at September 28, 2018 21:21 UTC


    Navigation links now that the application has been integrated with the existing Bahmni system. Interesting (!!) that we needed to use href for the navigation outside our app as the react routing would not route outside.

    We have done it. We have finished the current story. We have finished the project.

    We had our last mentor meeting. It is so nice meeting friendly people, but is so hard saying goodbye. We had some lovely laughs and our mentor was so complementary in his words " you should be very proud of what you have created" . He also drew us a certificate for taming the apache system that bahmni resides on!

    We have also sent each other text messages of gratitude and plans to meetup for coffee to reminisce! We formed a great partnership, we learnt from each other, we adapted to each others programming styles, different ways of learning, and different personal responsibilities. We kept our focus on creating the best app we could for an important open source project that will be used as a little cog in a bigger wheel of keeping and getting people healthy in remote parts of the world on low resource equipment.


    Finishing up documentation, messages of handover to the maintainers and then the community.

    Making amendments to our presentation slides for 2 Nov and adding Ivo's comments of adding our background, why RGSoC, and the future. He would prefer a live demo and we will just have a video for backup.

    TO DO

    A retrospective meeting has been arranged for next week while the project is still fresh.

    Georgina is also going to reactjsday in verona next week. Thank you RGSoC for arranging tickets.

    Thank you again for the opportunity RGSoC, sponsors, helpers and all the people that make this all possible.

  • Day Sixty One - 25th September

    Team Sectumsempra (Chapel Parallel Programming Language) [2018] — at September 28, 2018 18:47 UTC

    We had our last call with our coaches and supervisors where we expressed our gratitude to them for helping us all along the way, being such strong supports and helping us learn so many things like Parallel computing, distributing computing, the importance of performance analysis, how to optimize one's code, and so most importantly the Chapel Language.
    Without them, we would have been long lost. And hence are eternally grateful. We asked them if we could contribute even after RGSoC was over and they welcomed us.

  • Day 62

    Team Barcelona Duo (Exercism) [2018] — at September 28, 2018 16:47 UTC

    We are extremely sad that RGSoC is ending. We want to thank our mentors Katrina and Jeremy for the opportunity to work on Exercism. We learned so much and we hope to continue collaborating with the Exercism team in the future. We also want to thank our amazing coaches: David, Emily, Javier, Klaus, Maikha, Nacho, Jorge. This summer would not have been the same without you. A big thanks to our hosting company Thoughtworks, and all of the people that welcomed us this summer. Finally, we want to thank all of the RGSoC organizers. Thank you for all of your hard work, and for including us in this life-changing project. We had such a great time, and are looking forward to seeing what is next. ❀️

We are both excited to take this next step and see what comes next while knowing we will keep this experience close to our hearts for a long time to come πŸ’š.

    We want to extend a huge thanks to all our coaches, App Maintainer John, our supervisor, our coaching company Absolventa, the Nextcloud community (especially Jos, Jan, Xheni, and Jona) and also to each other. We didn't know one another before applying for the summer of code and it has been great getting to know each other, learn from one another and create together 😊.

    Congratulations to all the other teams for completing their summers of code also we are so happy to be part of the community with you all! πŸŽ‰

  • Day 61

    Team Barcelona Duo (Exercism) [2018] — at September 27, 2018 13:48 UTC

    We started the morning with an early session with our coach Ignacio to review the work we had done on the pagination. We created some mock data with the Factory Bot and were able to test that the code we wrote for the pagination worked. It was a great feeling to see the pagination in action. We finished our feature, put a lot of thought into the way we wrote our PR's making sure that we explained our logic and properly documented each one before submitting them. We are waiting for feedback and hope that our PRs will be merged. We also had a farewell call with our supervisor Ana Sophia and met with our coach David. Overall it was a great day.
