    Almost finished the demo. Had some trouble implementing the js api. Went through a lot of tutorials. Had lot of fun too!!

  • Hard work: we are learning so many things.

    Team Fanxhe [2015] — at July 29, 2015 00:33 UTC

    We published our first post yesterday at night, and for that reason we started the day with the daily standup to define and clarify the details to correct in our blog, and we determined in what we should be working today.
    After, we wrote some emails to the Living Style Guide’s Media and Content Chief, she gave us feedback about our first post.

    We translated the second post to English and we began to write the post for the Rails Girls blog. Also, we continued studying Rails, Ruby and Markdown.

    And finally, we attended the CSS and SMACSS course.

  • I know, I know... nothing

    Team Cheesy [2015] — at July 28, 2015 18:45 UTC

    After our daily standup we followed up with coach André on our hard study subjects. Working on those took most of the day. The process on getting a better understanding of Ruby, Rails and our project seems to be inversely proportional with the amount of our Pull Requests. Haha, where will that bring us at the end of the summer.
    At the end of the day we met with with SUPERvisor Lieke, to bring her up to speed. Great to have all this support watching our wellbeing.

  • Day 20 - our blog is up!

    Team CodeBenders [2015] — at July 28, 2015 18:34 UTC

    Made a few more changes to our blog and sent out a PR for the same. It's finally up here. Hope you guys like it!
    Merged our views and data branches into master today. Started reading about the various ways in which one can write test cases for Rails apps.

    Team GirlsCodersWarsaw [2015] — at July 28, 2015 18:23 UTC

    Day 20. Four weeks of learning behind us. Today we had a long call with our mentor, Torsten. He introduced us to his project, [RubyClerks](www.rubyclerks.org). First, we learned about the app and its functionalities. Then we looked into the app interior, cloned it to our locals and tried it out. We also planned our tasks for week.
    We will clone one of the existing engines - printing one and add it in other part of the application.

  • Day 19

    Team Delta Quadrant [2015] — at July 28, 2015 15:42 UTC

    Today we made our third pull request to diaspora: https://github.com/diaspora/diaspora/pull/6256
    There are still some open questions we hope to get solved with the help of some core contributors soon.

    Along the way:
    - Maren had some problems with mysql and switched to postgres instead (until now we didn't realize that we have the choice)
    - we squashed many commits to provide a more compact pull request and struggled with some issues while rebasing and squashing. We think about using git amend more often in the future to avoid so many squashings in the end. Probably we should discuss that with our coaches.
    - we started preparing our talk for the next Rails Girls Workshop in Berlin on friday

  • Day 12

    Team Alster Hamburgers [2015] — at July 28, 2015 15:41 UTC

    • Started a beautiful kanban board for our project:
      board

    • Put our next steps up on Github as issues for easy tracking for remote coaches

    • More tutorial (the last chapters take much longer than the earlier ones! Also, more places where to break things in the code...)

    • Trying to make better friends with the LEAP code and spotting the files we'll have to attack first

    • We were in the internal ThoughtWorks newsletter, which is pretty cool!

    • One of our meetings failed because the wifi was weak on both ends. :( We'll try again tomorrow.

    • Now one more coach session (more project planning) and then we'll call it a (successful) day!

  • Progress

    The week has begun with a standup, in which the members of the team agreed on what we would spend our day, and we decided to use part of the day to solve some responsiveness problems and prepare our Jekyll blog to publish the blog post that we wrote the last week.

    Our blog http://code.fanxhe.com/ and our first post http://code.fanxhe.com/blog/2015-07-28-the_beginning_of_the_adventure.html

    Also, we have been preparing a brain-storming document for our first rails girls blog post :)

    To finalize the afternoon we attended a CSS and SMACSS course facilitated by a coworker at Crowd Interactive and thanks to this we could understand and learn more good practices. Good news: our coworker will teach us during all the week!

    Moreover, the moment to start investigating and study the next task is near… search bar here we go ;)

  • Hello, drill instructor

    Team Cheesy [2015] — at July 27, 2015 22:22 UTC

    Remember we told you about our learning plan for this week? Well, it launched with a big bang. We were drilled by coach André on every single line of code we read or wrote. Reading code is one thing, explaining out loud every single letter, symbol and concept you encounter? That is something else. We are code-detectives in the making. No single line of code will escape our scrutiny.
