  • Day 56

    Team Code Bears (diaspora*) — at September 20, 2017 14:14 UTC

    Today we worked mainly on fixing the comments that we received on the questions that we asked yesterday on the issue page on github. Some minor fixes we were able to solve quickly. Then it took us some time to find a db query to retrieve the month and the day of a birthday that works both with mysql and postgres. Finally we managed to solve this using the extract method.
    After that we ran the rspec and realized that some tests were failing that seem to be somehow related to our changes. We are still in the process of figuring out what the exact relation is an how we can solve it.

  • Day 58 - Remotely..

    Team Fusion (OpenDF) — at September 19, 2017 18:27 UTC

    Today we couldn't meet at the same place to work, since one of us was a bit sick. πŸ€’ So we decided to work remotely and postpone our weekly call with the supervisor. So here's what we did.

    Things we did today:

    • Tested the search bar with the datepicker. βœ… Now the selected date gets appended to the search query.
    • Went through Selector library to use with Redux, since we are starting the Redux part of the app. βœ…
    • Today our second blog post was published!.. Once it was published we could notice some minor issues with the markdown usage. βœ… So we asked to send another PR and it worked. We sent another PR and once it was merged, it looked fine..

    Things to do tomorrow:

    • Have a coaching session with coach Kasun since we missed it today.
    • Continue to work on the Redux part of the app.

  • Day 55

    Team Code Bears (diaspora*) — at September 19, 2017 16:44 UTC

    Today we finished our tasks on the issue. We checked in the rails consul and server that the birthday notification works. We created a notification and saw that it calls the right methods in order to send a notification and an email. Then, at the email notifications preferences, we switched off the check box for the birthday notification and saw that a notification is sent but an email isn't. We also checked that this functionality is tested in the code. Then we asked on the issue page some questions we had and we are waiting for answers. Tomorrow we want to run all the tests . Other than working on the issue, we started to work in the end presentation for the Rails Girls Berlin end event.

    Afterwards we learned about filters with Derek and started to experiment with the filtering in In the afternoon we worked on our presentation for Friday.

  • Day 57 Pivotal London

    Team Pivotal London (Babel) — at September 19, 2017 15:28 UTC

    Today we had a LOT of changes we needed to make to our presentation. We have a run through this Friday, where it has to be 90% of the way there, but right now, it's more like 40%... This will be the first tech presentation either of us have ever done, so it's pretty daunting and nerve wracking. We made a PR for our blog post - which we hope you will all like (when it is published) - and worked on issues we had with an earlier PR we had made to the Babel codebase which has arisen today. We have a debugging session later on legacy code which will be super interesting :)

  • Day 54

    Team berlin diamonds (Discourse) — at September 19, 2017 14:32 UTC


    • - installed mailcatcher in order to see if we are really executing the email job
    • - after fixing some bugs the emails got sent
    • - when we clicked the url in the email we needed to also provide a new show action and build a route for that
    • - after having the route and the show action the link worked but it still didnt download the file because we were only giving the flie_ide instead of the name
    • - so we memoized the name in the downloader and called it in the show action
    • - talked to our mentor about our issues and he gave us a few helpful tipps
    • - after a few fixes here and there the downloading worked very well
    • - talked about our presentation and how we want to structure it and split up the talking between us
    • - made a plan for the next few days and tasks
    • - talked again about our experience during the summer of code and about how we want to continue coding together afterwards
