Team Tessie (Hoodie)  — at July 30, 2015 19:24 UTC
Today Pilar travelled from Vienna to Berlin for Eurucamp, where she is going to meet several Hoodie people as well as LOADS of RGSoC people.
This morning I joined in on the daily hoodie call and then got stuck into practicing some different types of HTML and CSS in the hopes of contributing to making the MFH app pretty when we get to that point! The things we are working on for the app are things that we both find difficult so while Pilar is away in Berlin, I am not going to skip ahead of her, but rather catch up in places where I am still somewhat of a beginner. Although having said that, I can already see the progress I have made in this area since the start of Summer of Code :D
- travelled to Berlin by air (baaaaah airports, I like the flying just fine but airports - don't get me wrong we are super priviledged for being able to fly)
- got to Potsdam and settled into the hotel (it was super nice, really beautiful!)
- wanted to wander around but it started raining so we just went to the supermarket and laughed at things we didn't have back home (eg. "DIE limonade" floored me, I mean I get you might not be a big fan of lemonade, but no reason to tell it to go die! Also die is the german "the" with female gender... Also Maille mustard is crazy cheap here, what gives?)
- went to the speakers dinner which was amazing! Had so many desserts... :< I shouldn't have but I did! We sat with Kinsey and Rebecca and were later joined by Txus and Erik. I was so touched that all these amazing people even bothered listening to a noob like myself. They were so wonderful and interesting, it was such a great evening! Erik almost talked Ramon into buying an Apple watch - seems like almost everybody had them! I'm really grateful for the speakers, they were so cool!
Team Rubyherzlein (SoundDrop)  — at July 30, 2015 18:31 UTC
Today we worked on the ⚡️talk that we will be giving tomorrow at the Rails Girls beginners' workshop! Then we added a couple of new features to the SoundDrop app, by fixing some API issues and adding select boxes with ruby! We had a meeting with our coach, and in the evening we went to two events at the SoundCloud office: RoleModels and Women Who Code.
Team CocoaGems (CocoaGems)  — at July 30, 2015 17:35 UTC
Mini Morning Scrum
Teaching session in the afternoon.
* Karla taught Emma about Data models from the book Algorithm
* Emma taught Karla about the sort method and it's originally from C that coach Jake Boxer went through the other day.
- continuing to write RSPEC tests for Cork : CocoaPods
- read from this site http://tutorials.jumpstartlab.com/topics/internal_testing/rspec_practices.html to learn about RSPEC best practices
-discovered this doc site : https://www.omniref.com/ruby/gems/cocoapods/0.17.2/symbols/Pod::UserInterface/warn used it to understand some of the UI Code
- used some of the examples here to better understand recursions base case's in Java - http://danzig.jct.ac.il/java_class/recursion.html
- read section 1.1 http://algs4.cs.princeton.edu/11model/
-read http://www.the-unlimited-mind.com/too-brainy-for-my-computer-how-programing-will-become-the-next-mainstream-computer-user-evolution/ because it is about a similar topic to my CodeConf Write Up.
Session with Ross McFarland in the morning on how to break down solving a bug. I picked his brain on how he would search for the things you would want to change in the codebase. In the main directory he would do
grep -r "The string you want to look for" PrecifiedDirectory/
We used git diff to better see the changes I had already made.
To limit the search result one can do
grep -r "The string you want to look for" PrecifiedDirectory/ | grep -v filenameyouwanttoexclude
It was interesting to compare his method to other coaches methods that I've seen before. It seems like everyone find the method that works for them and stick with it.
Continued practicing Ruby on RubyMonk
Team CodeBenders (RailsAdmin)  — at July 30, 2015 17:31 UTC
We used the paper clip gem to include images as attachments for the products in our e-commerce application. Introducing this has caused new problems for us - things are breaking on Heroku and we will need to change the way we seed data...
After getting the upload to work, we spent the rest of the day reading about possible solutions for the same. Haven't been able to find any yet!
Team Delta Quadrant (Diaspora)  — at July 30, 2015 16:45 UTC
Our day was very much about preparing our presentation tomorrow at the Rails Girls workshop at eurucamp.
Besides we worked on improving our map implementation on diaspora. This evening we will meet our coach Andy and ask him about gem integration, git amend and changes on db:schema.
Team Cheesy (Rails Girls)  — at July 30, 2015 16:30 UTC
My teamie is on her way to the RailsGirls Workshop and Konferenz in Potsdam, and I stayed in Amsterdam to guard the (code) base. Our new Lesson Plan points the way, and make us focus on certain subjects. I like that! So I applied yesterday's lessons, read the documentation on Active Record associations, added "has many" and "belongs to" associations to my Sandbox app, and migrated foreign_keys into the models. All in all it helps me to recognize and follow those relationships in our Project's code. And why that is so hard.... I was tempted to do the fun part - writing the required methods to knot everything together in the Sandbox - but no! The Lesson Plans says: go study PresenterControllers and Views. Yes Plan, will do. But first: taco's.
Team Alster Hamburgers (Leap/Pixelated)  — at July 30, 2015 15:27 UTC
- Conference preparation: We worked on our lightning talk presentation and practiced a bit to make sure we stay within the time limit. Looking good - final rehearsal tomorrow morning and we'll be good to go!

Wednesday, the day that we talked to our supervisor Katrin, of this way we started our day. We talked with to about all the work that we did the last week, how we feel about having published of our first blog post in our blog, the first post for the Rails Girls Blog and what we want to do and what are we are going to do this week.
Nico, our mentor, explained to us what we have to solve in our last pull-request, and later during our standup we talked about how would we solve it and the tasks to complete today.
Throughout the day, we sent to the Media and Content Chief our second post for our blog, we asked her to support us reviewing it. Also we updated our trello, and organized some of the next tasks.
We almost finished the post for Rails Girls, but we have thought about adding something original…. Surprise, surprise.
The logo was made by our designer, a coworker at Crowd Interactive.
Finally, we attended to the CSS and SMACSS course in our Coach Company: Crowd Interactive. You can see here: https://github.com/ingilniero/smacss-workshop

Team Cheesy (Rails Girls)  — at July 29, 2015 19:04 UTC
Let's say, the most energetic day of this summer it was not. Our daily anchor is the standup, to start the day. We talked about our Lessons Plan and Schedule, with goals to get more fluency in Ruby ± Rails, and hands-on coding experience. Roos had one of those the-day-before-leaving-the-city-days, between all the last minute arrangements for the Konferenz in Potsdam and her rescheduled Friday lunch cooking party for her hosts at The Artifical. She managed to get halfway her first home build Rails App. Maud had a less energetic afternoon (zzzzzz), but arrived fully refreshed and awake for her after hours coaching session with coach Yorick. Who drilled her in RESTfull routes, relational databases with one-to-many and many-to-many relations, and data integrity. And the o so subtile difference between passing an instance variable to the view and almost passing it.
Team CodeBenders (RailsAdmin)  — at July 29, 2015 18:55 UTC
We spent most of our day today figuring out how to deploy our app on Heroku. Neither of us had done it before and we faced many more issues than we had expected.
But in the process, we've learn't SO much!
And .. Here it is :D

Tuesday happy Tuesday! or rather, regular Tuesday that involves getting lots of awesome work done, lots of half-price art supplies from across the road, and a lunchtime massage from sektor's massage guy.
Today we got lots of our My First Hoodie app done together. Pilar made an awesome logo for it (as she always does, I am so jealous of her skills!!) , we made the skeleton of the app using hoodie, we introduced lots of little features, and we are super enthused about adding lots more.
Using our newly acquired art supplies (I bought several sketchbooks) we drew up what we want the app to look like, and chunked out the steps we need to take.
