This post aims to show you how to extend the functionality for a model or controller in a plugin. A plugin hooks into the core code to deliver to users some kind of functionality e.g. displaying ads. This post will be useful if you have an Ember App, or a Rails App using Ember as the front … Read more.

- Narrowed down topics for M+R talk
- Learned about test stubbing and Mocha/Webmock
- Wrote tests for language info pages, for real - WOW, all that time spent on tutorials beforehand made it easy! (I studied for my tests, haha)
- Reworking tests for tracks.rb, not working anymore
- Spent some time thinking about the organization of test documents--the directory looks kind of messy and structure is not immediately apparent

It has been a very long day. We finally found a clean way to seed images without changing our seeding mechanism.
We had so many problems during the implementation. Thanks to our coaches, we overcame all of them.
Result: Image Seeding is working finally and our demo app looks prettier now :)
Tomorrow we plan to find relevant images to seed and start testing!

We had a long coaching session today where each explanation form our coach led to more questions which led to yet more questions. With the list of subjects covered growing longer and longer, we nearly lost track of the first question which led us down the rabbit hole. We learned when questions lead astray like this it can be called 'yak shaving'! Topics we covered include:
learning about ruby web servers and frameworks and about the interact with the use of Rack
learned what factorial is
talked about recursion
Finally, we had an extensive session on regular expression, which we will be using to the field where users type a SoundCloud url, which will then be converted to a SoundCloud track-id!
This evening we have our weekly SoundDrop team meeting.
- we added a text fielt so the user could create a sounddrop by adding a random soundcloud url
- adding text field and verification that the input is really a soundcloud url (regular expression)
- ask Soundcloud API what the track id is
- put it into params drop/track id

This will be a quick post... In a nutshell, we created an adsense plugin and used constants when we should have used variables. Variables have to be stored in some kind of memory, whereas constants are set. The compiler works quickly with constants whereas, it's has to process the variables. So rule … Read more.

The first half of my weekend working hours I spent on finetuning some database thingy's for my sandbox app. I even posted my first ever question on Stack Overflow. Not only I got a decent answer, but it brought in a Bronze Student Badge as well. How appropriate! The second part of the day went to experiments with the sandbox's views. I never made my own css and layout files before. I installed Bootstrap, implemented Bootstrap's jumbotron, learned about grids, scss and css. And added a nice navbar. But it all is bits and pieces. Will try to tie things together tomorrow.
Got promising updates from Potsdam and also from SUPERvisor Lieke. She gave a thumbs up to our new learning plan, and in the meantime found us some stand in frontend coaches who will fill in for Hans and Shannon during their holidays.
