    Team Fusion (OpenDF) — at September 30, 2017 18:24 UTC

    So here ends the last working day of our RGSoC journey. It has been the most amazing and unforgettable summer of our lives so far. Throughout this summer we've been able to learn about many new things that are very important to us as developers. 😇 Today is not exactly the last day of RGSoC for us, it just the last working day. But tomorrow we'll be officially saying goodbye to our RGSoC family. It's gonna be emotional. 🤒 So today we could summerize about what we did and what we learned. 😊

    Things we did today:

    • Finalized the points for our announcement for the end of RGSoC celebration. ✅ We are gonna open the announcement tonight!.
    • Summerized the tasks and the things we learned throughout the summer. ✅ It was a really interesting session.
    • Wrote our wrap up blog post for our own blog. ✅ And we hope to publish it tomorrow.
    • Discussed about the final changes made to our File Browser app, mainly focussing on the Redux part. ✅

    Things to do tomorrow:

    • Have our final team call to say good bye.
    • Publish our wrap-up blog post for to our blog.
    • Start working on our application for the conference talk.

    Last but not least, we would like to thank RGSoC team for giving us this amazing opportunity. It was really wonderful and we enjoyed being a part of it.

    So it's a wrap.

    The official end of SoC 😭😭😭.

    It has been a great journey but we are not ready yet to say goodbye, we will be having a call with our Supervisor tomorrow then we will do an update .

    Meanwhile we have been working on removing a part of code we wrote for the home page and the search page since there is no code for the elements in the database.

    It's not yet goodbye from us :)

  • #Day64

    Team Codeaholics (Nextcloud) — at September 29, 2017 20:38 UTC

    • Today Xheni was feeling a bit better, so we met each other and discussed about our RGSoC scholarship, things we have learned and our future goals.

    • Of course that both of us will continue contributing to Nextcloud and be part of the community. :)

    • On Wednesday, we have the last meeting call with our supervisor, mentor and coaches and then we will celebrate the end of the RGSoC with other girls at Open Labs Hackerspace, which means this is not our last Status Update.

  • Day #67 - Last Day!

    Team 276linesofCode (Tessel) — at September 29, 2017 18:27 UTC

    Hey,

    So the Last day of RGSoC just got over for us 😭
    We had our last call with our Supervisor Vaishali and Mentor Kelsey. We can't believe it's no more of status updates, no more of PRs and no more of calls from Kelsey at 8:30 AM in the morning. We have had SO much of fun and our learning curve has been exponential, with working on different issues. We can't thank our Mentor, Kelsey for being the most amazing advisor and mentor ever! Tessel is the organization one needs when they are newbies to Open Source. Thank you Vaishali for being the ever fabulous Supervisor, helping us out with talks and everything that is needed to make our SoC more cooler than it already is.

    And lots of Love ❤️ 💛 💚 💙 💜 💗 to the RGSoC organisers. We are ever grateful for being selected as RGSoCers 2017!

    Oh, and not to mention the Conference 😘 , its Mission Paris 2018 for us!

    This experience will be unforgettable and we wish all the best to the RGSoC Family 💞

    Finally, Adios.

    Both of us ( Anagha and Amrita ) are planning to contribute to the program even after the SoC gets over. We have started training our juniors for the next coding season. We would be conducting workshops and other training session for students in our university.

  • Last day - Week 12 (Sep 18 - Sep 22) Status Update #5

    Team 200 OK (coala) — at September 29, 2017 14:18 UTC

    Today is our last day of RGSoC and we have been feeling really privileged to be accepted as a part of this program. We have learnt so much and grown tremendously through this summer. From getting code style and linting errors on our first PR to helping get others started with coala, we have truly come a long way. And in today's end of RGSoC celebration, we couldn't help tearing up a bit. We have been immensely thankful to Vidur and Tushar who have been extremely hands-on as coaches and have been unflinchingly supportive of us, even when we wrote bad code. A huge shoutout to Mayar our supervisor who has been our personal cheerleader for much of the summer and has never stopped short of encouraging us when we were feeling low, disappointed or burning out. Lastly, to each other without whom, this summer wouldn't have been half as much fun. We have pair-programmed, fought over tabs vs spaces, picked up each others' coding styles and been each others' biggest fans and worst critics. Also, a special mention to Lasse founder of coala and gitmate, who has been available whenever we reached out to him and is going to help us draft our talks at the upcoming conferences and help spread the word about coala and RGSoC.

    Also, a heartfelt congratulations to the rest of the teams who we have connected to via meetups, blogs and on LinkedIn. You all are amazing, lovely talented women and we feel so thankful to have known and read your stories.

    Team 200OK signs off!

  • Day 63, 64 and 65 Pivotal London

    Team Pivotal London (Babel) — at September 29, 2017 09:43 UTC

    SO today is our last day. We are incredibly sad (to say the least) that our summer is now at an end. We have loved being a part of this community and loved spending it working on Babel. We have never been so fortunate to have had the chance to be surrounded by such intelligent, sophisticated, cool and considerate people as our Pivotal London mentors, and we have been blessed to have had Ines as our supervisor, and Henry as our lovely and supportive Babel mentor. This summer has been such a privilege and it would not be possible had the Rails Girls Summer of Code given us this chance and opportunity. We owe our summer to you, and to everyone who has been involved with it in some way.

    Today we are presenting about our summer to the Pivotal community - it has been a hard presentation to prepare for because the summer has far exceeded even our wildest of expectations and it's been a summer of huge growth, transformation, opportunity and genuine passion and interests. We hope to do Rails Girls justice, as well as show Pivotal just how much this summer and their help this summer has meant to us.

    We have loved reading about everyone elses adventures this summer, and have loved experiencing the world through their eyes and through their Commits and PR's. It's an honour to have been part of the 2017 cohort, and to say we have been a part of these amazing women's journeys.

    So thank you Rails Girls for giving us this chance, and for giving us this community to be a part of - we love you, and we will never forget our time with you these past three months.
    With all our love,
    Emma and Kara

    Team 276linesofCode (Tessel) — at September 28, 2017 20:53 UTC

    Hey,

    Today we looked into enabling support for the 3G Dongle for ESP32. We had a Dongle with us wherein we tried installing the correct drivers in our systems. We have installed the driver toolchain in our systems and will continue it tomorrow.
    It's the last day of RGSoC tomorrow and we cannot stop thinking about it :(
    We'll try and make the most use of it.

    Till then, Adios.
