    Team potatoCode (stretchly - break time reminder app) — at July 15, 2018 13:21 UTC

    We received some feedback on the rebasing we've done yesterday. The owner of the PR we were reviewing made a nice list on problems we need to fix. GIT can be very challenging as a beginner to work with. Today is not an official working day, but we agreed to spent time on the project remotely. So I (Sabine) will inform Alina on what steps I took today ;-)

  • Day 11

    Team DelSquared — at July 14, 2018 18:37 UTC

    Hi All!

    Today we played around with JavaScript and I2C and wrote (and understood) the code from the Tessel documentation through which Tessel and sensors can communicate via the I2C protocol. We also read the ESP32 documentation and hope to start making sensors communicate with ESP32 using I2C protocol by tomorrow.

    Till we meet again,
    Cheers!

    Team potatoCode (stretchly - break time reminder app) — at July 14, 2018 08:27 UTC

    Today we're working on a PR made by one of the other contributors to Stretchly, and refactoring some of their code, before we make the new push. It's been a long week of trying to figure git out and we're still not there, but getting better every time. Today we are meeting with our coach Daniel, who is helping us learn rebasing and a bit more about module.exports in an application as big (and I use those words very loosely) as Stretchly.

    We're also doing more research into the timeline and history feature, both from a design and a application-build perspective. We have a LOT of work to do here, and expect that this part of the project will take up almost all our time at RGSoC, but we're super eager to learn how to embed a database into electron! And I'm super eager to learn more graphic design tips and tricks from Sabine :D

    Since the timeline feature will be our biggest challenge over the next few weeks, we also expect that sometimes we'll want to take a break and concentrate on other things, so Jan added a few details into our project board that we can think about doing.

    Up next:
    - making Stretchly pause in Do Not Disturb mode
    - Refactoring main.js into a smaller file and moving functions out into helper files + adding tests where and when necessary for the new structure

    Till next time,
    potatoCode

  • Day 10

    Team DelSquared — at July 14, 2018 05:44 UTC

    Hi All!

    Today we had our kickoff meeting with our mentor Kelsey, supervisor Bhumika and our coaches. One of our coaches Brihi could not attend the call as she was ill. We had a brief round of introductions followed by discussion on the work done up till now. We also fixed a time for video call with our supervisor for this month.

    Till we meet again,
    Cheers!

  • Day #10

    Team Brazilian housewives coding (Public Lab) — at July 14, 2018 02:55 UTC

    Wow, we are at the end of the second week already?!

    Today we finalized our PR from this week, now all the tests are green! :) Today we also started refactoring the Typeahead Service tests.

    It was really nice to learn how to separate the functionalities into different classes. For now, the API services are looking way more readable and have a less duplicated code. We may find something later to improve but it looks good to add more endpoints now.

    We are still waiting for our PR to be approved so tomorrow we are going to work on some docs and discuss the tasks for next week.

  • Day 10: Testing

    Team Akaringular (EBWiki) — at July 13, 2018 20:27 UTC

    Today we focused on testing and refactoring. We refactored model tests using gem shoulder matchers. Its syntax is cleaner and shorter.
    - We also finalized on blog and a created pull request on it.
    - Worked on case redirects when title is updated.

    TODO

    • Write redirect tests

  • Day 10

    Team Barcelona Duo (Exercism) — at July 13, 2018 19:20 UTC

    Final Thoughts on Brighton

    Today our mentors launched the beta version of the new exercism website! It was a tough three days as they worked on eliminating bugs and getting all the different parts working together. We managed to get some time with them and work out all of the details of what is expected of us in the next few months. We have a plan and now we can work on implementing it.

    The most important thing to come from the last four days is the importance of communication, trust and patience. We had many discussions to bring us up -to-date on the research they had done and the work that still needed to be done to improve the mentor training tool that we are going to work on this summer. We have come up with a plan that will enable us to use our existing skills as well as learn more about programming,and project management.

    Activities
    * Working on understanding the code base
    * Establishing communication channels
    * Defining our goals and expectations for the summer with the team
    * Celebrating the launch of the beta version of exercism

  • Day Ten

    Team Sectumsempra (Chapel Parallel Programming Language) — at July 13, 2018 17:49 UTC

    Started with implementing the radix sort algorithm. Learnt about some more functions in Chapel. We got some feedback on our first PR, and are planning to make the necessary changes and again submit it for review. Also, hoping to complete the radix sort algorithm as soon as possible.

    Had our weekly call with our supervisor, and discussed and cleared a few doubts about attending conferences. Later, both of us discussed about the list of conferences we could possibly attend.

  • Day - 11

    Team 101 Days of Summer (Servo) — at July 13, 2018 17:10 UTC

    We completed the "select image source" algorithm today!! Yayy :D
    - But we troubled everyone with a number of doubts. The two mysterious errors "cannot move out of borrowed content" and "cannot mutably borrow field of immutable binding" were following us with each new method we tried. We felt we would do away with "cloning" our code but in the end, only that worked.
    ( where cloning implies creating a copy of the structure instead of working on the original copy :P )
    - Paavini was able to reinstall the codebase, and compile the project successfully. Huh finally! 😅 She was totally troubled for 2 days! She also updated her codebase with all the work we have completed until now :)
    - We are planning to start writing tests starting with the "parse sizes algorithm" which we had reimplemented this week. Cheers!

  • Day #10

    Team Brazilian housewives coding (Public Lab) — at July 13, 2018 05:09 UTC

    Good night!

    We are still working on our PR! Our code is working, but Code Climate (an automated code review tool for GitHub) is complaining about "cognitive complexity". So we have to simplify the code in order to make it more readable. We've already broken the responsibilities into new classes, this solved most issues. We still have to work on minor repairs, but we'll do it tomorrow!

  • Day 9

    Team Barcelona Duo (Exercism) — at July 12, 2018 22:11 UTC

    And the learning continues

    We spent the day watching the intense work that goes into launching a product as the beta of the new version of Exercism.io launches shortly. We had a chance to bond over dinner and get to know each other on a personal level, which is important as we will be working remotely.

    Highlights
    * Realizing that getting into a new code base is a skill that one has to learn.
    * Hearing alternative perspectives to agile methods.
    * Getting encouraging words of advice from our coaches David and Emily (They haven't forgotten us)
    * Remembering git add remote

    Questions that emerged from our time in Brighton
    * Will we ever master pull/add/commit/fetch/merge?

  • Day 9: REFACTORING

    Team Akaringular (EBWiki) — at July 12, 2018 20:37 UTC

    • There are different ways of refactoring, so today we learnt that to refactor view we use helper or partials, to refactor model we use concerns or services
    • Updated gem for charts
    • Had a call with Paul Ogudah our coach who has helped us step by step solve pending issues
    • He has helped us understand how migrations work and how to handle migration issues

    To Do

    • Handle two migration pending issues
    • Read more on services
    • add contents on how to use EBWiki

  • Day Nine - Submitted first PR :D

    Team Sectumsempra (Chapel Parallel Programming Language) — at July 12, 2018 20:10 UTC

    Things Done:

    We were confused about how to submit the documentation for the BigInt module, for review. And it took a little time, to understand how exactly, the chapel documentation is to be made using the chpl docs tool. Thanks to our mentor and coaches, for helping out and pointing us in the right direction. Also, learnt a thing or two about making pull requests and git. Finally, submitted a pull request for our first task. Now that we are clear with the pipeline of how things work, we'll be adding the documentation for other functions shortly.

    To Do:

    And now comes the second task, of writing a basic radix sort. After a bit of reading about it from here and there, watching a few videos, regarding that, finally, we are in a position to begin coding.

    Hoping to get things done soon,
    Team Sectumsempra

  • Day 9: Exploring the core of babel-time-travel ☀️

    Team Sunshine (Babel) — at July 12, 2018 18:53 UTC

    TODAY
    * Installed babel-time-travel in local and reviewed babel-worker.js, the main heart of this project. We did console.log() and got babel transformed arrays! Simply awesome!
    * Deployed cloned babel-time-traveler app on netlify.
    * Gyujin is catching flow errors in babel website and preparing PR.
    * Sungjoon, our coach visited us and we discussed UI improvements based on babel-time-traveler. Sujin suggests new feature minimap, a preview of the full source code like atom or vscode editor and Sungjoon will guide us atom-minimap.

    TODO
    * Integrate gray footer navigators in babel-time-traveler in current REPL.
