Except for our daily stand-up and the weekly mentoring session with Carpmeister and his way-too-cute newborn son, today was all about GitHub avatars. Like everything this summer, simple tasks that coaches, mentors or any other pro's describe as "easy" tend to last at least two days ^^
Adding avatar pictures to the activity stream first made us encounter a lot of problems with prerequisite things. So two screenhero sesions later, finally we got halfway. To take our minds of things, we started to work on the blogpost for tomorrow. Both are to be continued! :)

A morning standup with coaches sum up our previous day and made plans for futher work. New issues are coming!
Anna: I started with a quick review of adding and updating records to the database. Then I made first commit in the project! I pushed my app to the github in order to fulfill my first issue. Actually I made a first branch on my project and made a pull request in order to merge it if it’s finished. Learn about adding files to .gitignore and some useful commands on git, like removing files and folders, changing branch to work on, adding a new remote. I also put some validations to the model after learning about it.
And we have a barbecue with our coaches in the evening today!

Meetings Day! I am highlighting the important things we did as sort of a tl;dr :)
Today we had a call with our mentor Ola to talk about updating our project plan. The one we were working from was from our application, and this needed updating.
We then had our daily standup with the hoodie folk. Right after we hopped back into individual calls with Ola for our weekly one on one to update on overall progress.
Around this stage we sat down to our desks for a little while and worked on submitting our RGSoC blog post that went up in the evening. Partway through this we abandoned it once more for a call with Ola and solidified our project plan for July.
And in case you're interested... Here's the blog post!

Lunch- Crepes with Rachel Myers @ the Local Creperie
Long Haul Theme and the Compass Watch Set Up Step # 4 Failed
Destroyed the original CocoaGems.github.io and used rm -rf to get rid of the Long Haul theme clone and Fork
Cloned and Forked the Long Haul Jekyll Theme - but this time we re -named it CocoaGems.github.io
Learned and or practiced the following commands in the process:
PWD print working directory to make sure we were in the CocoaGems.github.io directory
Git Status to check the branch master - to see if our branch was up to date with origin or master - displayed changes we made
git add index.html because we wanted to add the changes we made on the index.html file/ page
git status here we saw the changes in green => saying now they are staged and ready to be committed
git commit -v opened our editor so we could write commit mssg in the editor
git log -1 showed us our commit # and commit message
git log -1 -p " "
git push to finally push the changes

Sarah: I’m once again very thankful towards Redbubble for providing us a proper workspace. The Macbook is coming in very handy. The disk is relatively uncluttered, which leaves much room for us to download and install the programs, dependencies, applications and gems we need. Downloads made … Read more.

We’ve started our day with the daily stand up - quick review what did we do on Friday, and quick plan for today.
After learning mastering Github we made some issues and task to do. Also we started our practice work with our applications.
Ana: I started my really first app: write a controller, and a model also, made a migration and set a single route. Learn about routing a little bit: how to create routes, about HTTP verbs and path for a certain action.
I liked the issues in github. There is so many ways to use them. And you can follow my progress now!
and we know how to use basic Markdown
Team Delta Quadrant (Diaspora)  — at July 6, 2015 16:27 UTC
Our day was pretty exiting since we moved to our second working space @blacklane.
We got to know the development team in a weekly stand up meeting and had lunch with 4 of them (eating south indian food and talking about summer of code and science fiction movies).
Finally we finished out Game of life and had to struggle a little bit with outdated code in the tutorial. But now IT WORKS!!!!
You can see our code here.
