    • Narrowed down topics for M+R talk

    • 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

  • Day 24: Images Seeded.. Yayiie :D

    Team CodeBenders [2015] — at August 3, 2015 18:31 UTC

    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!

  • Rubyherzlein August 3

    Team Rubyherzlein [2015] — at August 3, 2015 16:21 UTC

    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:

    reviewing array.pop
    learning about ruby web servers and frameworks and about the interact with the use of Rack
    reviewing telnet
    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

  • Day 24 GirlsCodersWarsaw (RubyClerks)

    Team GirlsCodersWarsaw [2015] — at August 3, 2015 15:21 UTC

    A new month begins! And a lot of work to do. After a daily standup with our coaches, we planned our work to complete first issues for RubyClerks.
    Ania made a sample database in english and dump it to fixtures using one of existing rake tasks. Then started to learn about testing, TDD, BDD… whoa! There’s a lot of it!

    Basia: I solved javascript issue! yeah! I think I could like js in future (not yet, not yet…) I’ve learned how to change [“this string”] to this string using .slice method <3 That was helpful! I’ve met typeof method and learned how to style in javascript. Now I have beautiful validation errors displayed asynchronious with nice borders. Now I can rest.

  • Another point of views

    Team Cheesy [2015] — at August 2, 2015 19:20 UTC

    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.
