  • Third Day - Great sunny and very hot day

    Team Alpha Ruby (α ❤ ✌) [2015] — at July 3, 2015 21:58 UTC

    Today it was a challenging day with a lot travelling. Team Alpha Ruby made it to Berlin, on this very hot day.
    We have been able to participate and represent our team at the Rails Girls Summer of Code Kickoff Party.
    It was very nice to get to know other participants, the organizers and everyone involved.

    Furthermore we enjoyed studying HTML and CSS today and next steps will be to continue our study.

  • Third day - much learning, very talks

    Team DEIGirls [2015] — at July 3, 2015 21:14 UTC

    Today we finished a rails tutorial, and "hung out" with our supervisor and the guinea pig. We also had a long skype call with one of our coaches who explained to us the folder structure of a rails project and other specific questions we had about ruby and rails.
    Also, ice cream to celebrate!

  • Day #3!

    Team Hackrgirls [2015] — at July 3, 2015 20:12 UTC

  • Day 3 - Team Cheesy

    Team Cheesy [2015] — at July 3, 2015 16:53 UTC

    Another day of getting settled! We tried to get our overwhelmed heads around the Git-situation and installing the app properly on both our machines. Met our wonderful coach Lieke by Google hangout. Figured out some personal confusions around Git and the App and finished the day off by going to the App, the Gituation and the problems together. Finished off with a rant about all our impressions on this week on a sunny terrace in the centre of Amsterdam. Ready for week 2!

  • Day Three!

    Team GirlsCodersWarsaw [2015] — at July 3, 2015 14:56 UTC

    First three days behind us. First of all, a lot of organization and planning work, but also a lot of hangouts calls.
    Today we had a KickOff call with the whole big team - the two of us, coaches in our office, also two remotely coaches, mentor and a supervisor. Big GirlsCodersWarsaw Family! ;)
    In the evening there will be also our little Warsaw KickOff Party and we suppose to do a Friday hug hangout with RGSoC community from Berlin, yay! :D

    Today we went through how to master a github - as a review - for example: configuring git, forking and cloning, submitting a pull request, collaboration using pull request, a bit of working on many branches, what gitignore does and also what environment variables are.

    Also repos for our traning apps are ready for their first commits in RGSoC 2015: https://github.com/GirlsCodersWarsaw
    Check it out! :)

  • RGSoC Day 3 :)

    Team RailsGEnthusiasts [2015] — at July 3, 2015 13:16 UTC

    The last day of the week and the third day of RGSoC was very emotional...
    Well ... we forgot to pick up our coach Andrew R. from the metro station :) ... we laugh, joked and after drinking our coffee, while discussing the daily topics we had a conversation with our supervisor Lieke :)
    The day continue with some installations, corrections and little troubles with Wi-Fi connection. Despite of everything we continue reading and practicing tutorials.
    Andrew and Tsvety explained us a lot of things.
    One more hour until the end of the day, few more minutes reading and coding...
    Have a nice weekend, see you on Monday :) :) :)

    Team Melbourne [2015] — at July 3, 2015 06:41 UTC

    · Kick-Off Hangout Call with Sara and our 2 female coaches!
    · Received a tweet from WatchAndCode founder who suggested using his site to aid our Eloquent Javascript learning
    · More, more, more administrative work
    · Created a Basic Plugin (see blog) using Javascript and bundle commands for Discourse. It worked!
    · Git Masters in Training - learned that we couldn't compare repos (although this could be done in 2010), how to remotely push pull between directories, users and what could and couldn't be done.
    A large part of the day was spent on Points 4 and 5.
    Despite it being a Friday, we stayed in the office for pretty much the whole duration. We promise to make future Fridays more exciting than this!

    ** Happy Weekend, RGSoC Teams and Everyone! **
