    Team DEIGirls [2015] — at July 24, 2015 16:44 UTC

    Today we met with our mentor and coaches and discussed our agenda. We also had a little catchup chat with our supervisor.
    We finished our blog post and created the pull request.
    Afterwards we attacked the second feature of the mailer gem and corrected some issues on the first one.
    We also got the chance to play a bit with Oculus Rift! :D

  • Day 18: The day Shelly broke the Jake Gyllenhaal Triangle

    Team Tessie [2015] — at July 24, 2015 16:22 UTC

    Meetings meetings meetings :D Also CMVie and vet visits...

    Our morning should have started off with us both attending Creative Mornings Vienna (along with Ramon and Igor) but because of a required unplanned vet visit, Shelly and Igor had to miss out. (Pilar and Ramon had quite a good time though!)

    After CMVie, Ramon and Pilar worked on some things together, namely the (trickier than expected) starter issue, while Shelly looked at the combined Tessie notes to begin to make the roadmap for the my first hoodie app.

    We had a call with Gregor in the evening. He is covering for Ola while she is on holidays. We discussed our progress so far, what we are doing and what problems we might have run into so far.

    After this we had our supervisor call with Markus who is back from holidays and because it was about 18:30 when we finished, we called it an evening and started our weekend!

    What's that? You're wondering about the Jake Gyllenhaal triangle and how Shelly broke it? Well. We mentioned the "/giphy mine = Jake Gyllenhaal" discovery that we made, but in her excitement, Shelly tweeted at Slack about the discovery and since then it doesn't work anymore.


  • Day 17: The day we found the Jake Gyllenhaal Triangle

    Team Tessie [2015] — at July 24, 2015 16:21 UTC

    /giphy mine

    Jake Gyllenhaal?

    ...okay... What is this.....

    /giphy mine

    Jake Gyllenhaal?

    Okay. This isn't funny.


    Jake Gyllenhaal?


    /giphy mine

    Jake Gyllenhaal?

    Okay, we actually did get things done, like we brainstormed further about app ideas, planned for when one of us or both of us might be off on a conference, Pilar did that thing of taking the hoodie testtest app and played around with the code to see what did what, etc... But still the weirdest thing we found out today is that if you put /giphy mine in Slack, you only ever get Jake Gyllenhaal. Only him. Ever. It's weird....

  • Team Tessie: Day 16

    Team Tessie [2015] — at July 24, 2015 16:21 UTC

    Wednesday! Today we set this as a catch up day, to update our notes and make sure we are on top of everything and that we haven't missed things.
    After the first half of the day doing lots of revision, Pilar started working on some really really awesome designs that you will see soon! and Shelly jumped into the background of the hoodie test app and broke everything before putting it back together to see how it all works.

    One of the best things about today was recognising how far we've gotten already. We are learning so much! <3

  • Day 18

    Team Delta Quadrant [2015] — at July 24, 2015 15:57 UTC

    YAY!!! We finally managed to get the location displayed on a map AND set a marker on the correct position!

    With the help of nice developers at blacklane and on the diaspora-dev-chat we could solve our last problems with the rails asset pipeline and leaflet.js.

    What we also:
    * solved some CSS troubles
    * watched a talk on testing micro services
    * had a short talk at blacklane tech friday on what we are currently working on
    * were happy that we won tickets to EuRuKo in Salzburg
    * played around with some map styles at mapbox

  • Day 10

    Team Alster Hamburgers [2015] — at July 24, 2015 15:27 UTC

    • Started our day with a few tutorial videos and our daily meeting with our mentors
    • An hour after that we had another meeting with a few more coaches where we talked about our week so far. We also showcased our little tutorial game and explained our code and unit tests.
    • We had a fun come together at the office kitchen where we enjoyed some pizza and a "BrownBag" presentation on the triathlon and the experiences of the many (!) colleagues who participated.
    • Jan, our coach, explained what a value proposition canvas looks like and what it is good for. We used it to analyze our LEAP project requirements so we had to check out the website and its current status. That was fun since we were able to write on the wall.
    • We also won the ticket raffle and hold two tickets for the Eurucamp in Potsdam this July! Yay!
    • We continued working on our tutorial game and learned a few things about Hashes, Input and Output and custom Iterators.

  • Day 18 GirlsCodersWarsaw (RubyClerks)

    Team GirlsCodersWarsaw [2015] — at July 24, 2015 14:47 UTC

    The result of the raffle are already here!!!! YAAAYYY! We won tickets to Barcelona Ruby Conf! We’re so excited! :D That would be a chance to meet Yukihiro Matsumoto, the designer of the Ruby language! Today we had also hangout with our supervisor Magda, who we’ll also meet in Barcelona! That makes this even more awesome! <3
    We also keep on upgrading our training apps: Ania made a checkbox for removing images in her app and added a little bit of CSS to it. Basia was working hard to improve validations in her app, which is actually a little complicated.
    Have a nice weekend!

  • Day 17

    Team Delta Quadrant [2015] — at July 24, 2015 08:17 UTC

    A day of ups and downs ending with an up - Yay :)

    We worked on our map implementation and solved many issues along the way. So after a while the map was really displayed. While refactoring and bringing the code in a proper order everything crashed again but we finally could get it run with the help of our mentor Lisa.

    What we did along the way:
    * learned about HAML, Moustache and Handlebars
    * implemented leaflet.js - in the beginning as a gem, then as .js
    * learned how to run jasmine tests
    * gave up understanding how we can adjust the existing jasmine tests to our needs (will work on that later)
    * had a call with our coach Andy (who said it is normal developer life to have these ups and downs :))
    * had a meeting with the Berlin diaspora* community

  • Day 9

    Team Alster Hamburgers [2015] — at July 24, 2015 07:45 UTC

    • Hooray: Aya finally arrived in Hamburg. Not working remotely will make things much faster and easier!
    • We spent some time catching up on all learning materials we've used to catch up on each other's progress outside of our main tutorial
    • We also spent time learning more about project management, going through inception cards to find out more about how to narrow down our project
    • More tutorials, of course
    • Tried to get RubyMine licenses and there is some back and forth - so far they didn't accept us yet as open source contributors, probably because we haven't actively contributed yet (hopefully soon! :) )
    • Team event! We went canoeing along with our ThoughtWorks colleagues along Hamburg's rivers and canals. Highly recommended!

  • Team Melbourne · #D18

  • 23 July

    Team Hackrgirls [2015] — at July 24, 2015 02:25 UTC

    Demo is almost complete. Played around with JavaScript a little...and of course googling!


    Team Fanxhe [2015] — at July 24, 2015 01:17 UTC

    Today was a great and tiring day. We started our day with the notice of the merge of our first task and this is included in the new version of the gem.

    In the morning, we finished the first post for our Blog and on it we talked about the first weeks in the Summer of Code and the Open Source project in which we are working. Also, we have wrote the post in English and Spanish as well.

    We continued resolving some problems with the code of our Blog to publish it finally, and also the post we had wrote.

    Later, we have written to the Media and Content Chief of the Living Style Guide gem, Jen, we would like to have her support to check the grammar of our post.

    And sure, today we have investigated more about the copy button task and how to do it, and we reviewed the part of code that we could reuse inside the gem, also we were selecting which of our tests we can reuse to play with our new code. We think that tomorrow will be a full day of testing code…

    Seeding fake data, status: complete! :D :D
    - We simplified the schema a little to make the seeding process smooth and easy.
    - We had to write scripts to change the structure of the data we found online so that we could fit it in our database schema.
    The demo app is almost done.
    Time to get it reviewed by our mentor for final edits :)
