Both of us tried to approach the problem individually to see if we can find some creative ideas. And interestingly we could do it but working in team is more effective. . Trying on Issue 425 , Currently, impress.js breaks keyboard shortcuts for the browser's Back (⌘←) and Forward (⌘→) because it swallows all keyup events without first checking event.metaKey. Finding options to filter

we finished some minor fixes about our last 2 pull requests for votes on links and the search form
We have started to work on the new feature Guides section for Ruby Game Developers
As we have not got so much information about this feature, we had some discussions about this with our coach Andrew
We decided to start working on what we have as an idea
Later in the afternoon we had our weekly skype meeting with our supervisor Lieke
Afterwards we could speak with our mentor Andrew about the Guides feature. He has given us some clues and suggestions how it should look like
We started from the beginning.
It was a long, but fruitful day for us!

Yes!! finally, we did it. :)
We had a great day, because we could solve the problem that we had with our task and finish it :). The true is that we have learned so much doing the search-bar.
At midday, we talked with our mentor and we showed him a example and, apparently, all is fine.
We sent a new commit to our pull-request.
The afternoon was more relaxed and we studied about:

Long day but really productive:
1. Finished a lot of tutorials on JSON. See a summary of them here: https://rubygirlsquito.wordpress.com/2015/08/13/json/
2. Read articles about REST. http://blog.plataformatec.com.br/2009/08/embracing-rest-with-mind-body-and-soul/, http://david.heinemeierhansson.com/posts/37-bringing-merbs-providesdisplay-into-rails-3
3. Investigate on how to create an API parsing JSON.
4. Review ideas and links on billing for LEAP.
5. Created a plan for working on billing (referred as 'major task').
CouchDB Tutorials Day, looking for how it works with rails. Thank you pluralsight.

These days we have to improve the functionality of the platform, due that we have to read a lot of guides. http://guides.rubyonrails.org/active_record_callbacks.html http://guides.rubyonrails.org/layouts_and_rendering.html http://guides.rubyonrails.org/testing.html

Our daily standup was mostly spent on our lesson plan. Roos went ahead with arrays, finished her assignments for writing seeds for the sandbox app to exercise her newly acquainted knowledge. Those seeds are so funny, she definitively wants to prepare a FFaker Pull Request.
Maud took it a bit more easy, no, really this time, after a few marathon days. She wrote a few more tests and deleted most of the lines while refactoring. Read a bit in textbooks and just at closing time might have found a completely different solution for the nagging status_update form problem. Challenge, I mean, challenge.

In this murky day (outside, inside it's nice and balloony still) we had the absolutely essential help of Nancy, my adorable 4 year old Pinscher and the love of my life (Rosa talking here) that helped us fix our splat hash bug from yesterday :D YEY!
We did 2 more pull requests (4 pending now!) and cleaned up all the code, removing unused methods we made when we knew nothing (we're Jon Snows, and not dead, just like him!) and sprucing up our tests.
And now we will flee to our houses before it starts to rain, because we didn't bring umbrellas (ellas, ellas, ellas, e, e, e).
Team Alster Hamburgers  — at August 13, 2015 15:50 UTC
A busy but productive day (so productive we just realized we never even got around to publishing yesterday's daily log, even). :)
We worked on our next two user stories using the work we did yesterday - we made it quite far in implementing them and then completed them in another pairing session. (And learned a lot about Active Record Validations and views in CouchDB). And then realized that oh... it may work beautifully but now dozens of existing unit tests fail: Argh. So we had a long session with coach Lukas to get them back to green and learned a lot about overriding existing methods with test data. And THEN we realized that there may be a better solution than our first approach, so we changed everything around again. :)
But! As a result, two more stories moved across our Kanban board to the QA lane, two more are already ready for sign-off, and all together, they mean our first real pull request may be getting much closer! (So far, our finished tasks seemed to small to ask to merge them but slowly, it is getting a bit more substantial).
And to end the day, we added a few additional stories to the board/to our GitHub issues to make sure we don't run out of things to do. ;)

Another long day!
Anke is back so the first part of the day went to catching up on everything Aya had accomplished the day before while she was out.
And then... still lots of open questions! We worked more on invite code validation and the main result of the day is a long list of questions we came up with while researching how to approach the next task. So many things we don't know! :D
Our main confusion is around CouchDB and how to query it, which methods to use, etc. We managed to find a first step towards a solution in the evening with coach Klaus, now we just have to figure out how to fit it into the general code. :)
We still have one failing test to fix (but will need coach help for that - they also decided it was quite tricky.)
In the evening, Anke and some of the coaches went to the Hamburg Ruby Usergroup meeting.

The day of glory!! After some fixes our first pull requests to the RubyClerks project were accepted! Yay! We have our first contribution into Open Source! Contributors
Beside this we keep on learning about testing.
Team Tessie  — at August 13, 2015 12:28 UTC
What do you mean it's the halfway point?! This makes us sad. We don't want rgsoc to end :(
From our testing research , we are leaning towards using Intern and so our research intensified!
Now that we are at the halfway point, it's great to look back at where we started. We've learned so much! It's getting scary to think that soon we will be sent out into the big bad world!
