  • After the fourth comes the sixth

    Team DEIGirls [2015] — at August 11, 2015 15:55 UTC

    The skip ball we bought yesterday allowed us to skip issue number 5 and go straight to issue number 6. And it is already brewing! On the way we found and solved a little pixie bug in our previous work and we added some more tests on previous issues.
    Alex offered us Rubymine licenses and we made fun of Rosa because she doesn't like to use proper IDEs (Rosa still uses Geany although Inês does her best effort to show her other stuff). Now we are waiting for someone to offer us some Macs since everyone is so eager for us to use them!

    P.S.: Inês is a pain. I only need a text editor to write. At least I don't use VIM. humph.
    P.S.S: You can all see what I suffer daily with Rosa. xD

  • Another pull request accepted <3

    Team Binary [2015] — at August 11, 2015 15:52 UTC

    Yesterday the coach accepted our pull request about “send adoption request”. Also we implement the funcionality of store gems in the database because before we always request de data from rubygems.

    Today we send a new pull request with the search bar functionality in the landing page. We are waiting for reviews.

    Have a nice day!

    Team Delta Quadrant [2015] — at August 11, 2015 15:17 UTC

    Still hot, still struggling with Jasmine tests but thanks to the help of a diaspora core dev in the IRC chat we managed to write several tests and make it PASSSSS!

  • Day 28

    Team Delta Quadrant [2015] — at August 11, 2015 15:16 UTC

    It was sooooo hot. But we managed to do some things:

    • we discussed the feedback we got on our map implementation from diaspora devs
    • we started writing some Jasmine tests for our map implementation and realized that almost no one (we know) seems to use these tests for javascript testing in real life ;)
    • we met our coach Christophe and talked about our next issue to create a moderator role and some security issues while working in an open networks (in preparation going to #CCCamp15

  • Day 30 GirlsCodersWarsaw (RubyClerks)

    Team GirlsCodersWarsaw [2015] — at August 11, 2015 14:58 UTC

    What a hopeless day. Everything goes wrong. First of all, all the tests go wrong. We tried to write some feature specs in order to test our code, but it failed. I guess we don’t know enough about testing to do it right, so we have to learn more about it. Our mentor said that some part of the spec code is right, so it’s not that bad that we thought. So maybe we don’t have to start it again.

    Edit: But finally Basia fixed it and it works! Yeah! :D

  • Rubyherzlein Monday August 10!

    Team Rubyherzlein [2015] — at August 11, 2015 13:01 UTC

    In the morning we did pair programming, solving assignments that Duana gave us about params and hashes. In the afternoon we met with Erik to go over the assignment, this lead to a longer session on params and in the evening we had our weekly SoundDrop meeting with everyone. We divided us up into two groups one group changed the error message page and the other group added a function that checks if the user is logged in before letting her/him proceed.

  • Almost there

    Team Fanxhe [2015] — at August 11, 2015 12:00 UTC

    We did more and more work on the search-box task. Everytime time we are near to solve the problem another one appears. During the day we read and studied about: JS: methods as Array.filter, Array.indexOf and also about NodeLists. We started using jsfiddle.net, it’s very useful. HTML … Read more.

    Dortmund! Excitement!

    This week we are working with our mentor Ola from her lovey city, Dortmund. Shelly is on the orga team of otsconf, which is happening here on Saturday so we have taken the opportunity to work all together for the week leading up to it. <3

    We set up our working space in our (slightly disastrous) airbnb. We put up the kanban board and made our plan for the week with Ola. We also have one of our coaches here for the week (hi ramon!) and another one is joining us on Friday (hi igor!) so we are looking forward to getting lots of work done and having lots of fun.

  • We see the light

    Team Fanxhe [2015] — at August 11, 2015 01:57 UTC

    We started the week with a message from our mentor Nico. He told us that he would be merging our pull request for the copy buttons.

    We continued with the search task and we now have some progress. The markdown gem used by Living Style Guide to generate the html document does not allows us to change its structure to group headers and other content elements to ease the search. We believe that we have found the way to solve our problem: we are using 'nextSibling' and 'nextElementSibling' to display related elements.

    Also, we improved our blog and we included our daily logs in it:

    Finally, today we had our standup at the end of the day

    Team Cheesy [2015] — at August 10, 2015 20:23 UTC

    Today was going to be the day to finish Lesson Two (Adding UX Features) with a Big Bang: making all SoC student's happy with easy access to the Status Update Form. Aiiiii. Wishfull thinking. If only we just moved the button to the top of the page, but no, we were being bigheaded. We wanted to do it super sweet and more beautiful. But you know: there is no better code than working code. It reminded us of one of the coaches' lessons: "You can write code twice: once to fix a problem rightaway and make everybody happy; once again to fix it the hard way". Lesson learned...
    To be honest: it was fun anyway :-)
    In the meantime, Roos started studying Ruby querying, Maud testing with RSpec. So, who knows what tomorrow will bring. Say cheese!
