  • Learning to learn

    Team Cheesy [2015] — at July 23, 2015 16:51 UTC

    We started the day with the beginner's crux: when is going to be the first time we create something without having to fix something else?
    So after fixing the technical stuff, we had a long meeting to fix the non-technical stuff: our learning process for the next period.

    planning goes best outside ;)

    We're starting the next milestone of making a supervisor dashboard and to make sure we can speed up our learning process as Ruby Nubys, we decided to set-up a learning plan with our coach Andre en we made a pair programming plan to learn together.
    To get the technical specs for the dashboard, we skyped with our mentor Carsten, who, like always, opened up whole new worlds for us with everything he said. So.much.great.information.

  • Day 17 GirlsCodersWarsaw (RubyClerks)

    Team GirlsCodersWarsaw [2015] — at July 23, 2015 15:20 UTC

    Anna:
    Another beautiful day for coding… with a lot of bugs fixing actually. I didn’t think that this would take me almost the whole day! Fixing bugs is so exhusting! Today I:
    * managed to make my training app works with dropbox
    * fixes environmental variables
    * add images default placeholders
    * fixes select options to keep the choice

    Basia:
    * merging. Oh, git… Our relationship is still “complicated”
    * and you RubyMine are my very supportive friend. Merging with you isn’t so scary.
    * I did memberships table for projects and users, and has_many through assocciation
    * learned a little bit about indexing

  • Bitcoin decision!

    Team RubyGirls Quito [2015] — at July 23, 2015 14:22 UTC

    2. Finished a Rails tutorial.
    3. Asked Jerry Cheung about the current status of his client (https://github.com/jch/braintree_payment_processing).

  • Day 8

    Team Alster Hamburgers [2015] — at July 23, 2015 10:50 UTC

    • One of the highlights of the day: Goal-setting session with coaches and mentors: We tried to define what our goal for the summer is (our (stretch?) goal: production code!) and what the next steps are in getting there. (Learn more about project management from our coaches, define what exactly the feature should look like and what would make most sense as first iteration, write stories...) After so many tutorials and exercises, it's exciting to start working on something more real.

    • An introduction to Rails with coach Klaus, and more lessons from our Ruby tutorial (the end is nigh! At the same time, the lessons are getting more complex.)

    • We had some odd problems with our team Twitter account for two days - we could no longer tweet from any of the browsers/computers that we tried. Trying the Twitter app mysteriously fixed this, also for the browser. Odd.

    • Aya was busy writing an exam so our day started later and lasted longer instead... so when we finished after 8pm, we postponed the daily log to the next day.

  • RGSoC Day 15

    Team R'n'B [Ruby & Bugs] [2015] — at July 23, 2015 09:45 UTC

  • Sync Day :) :)

    Team Fanxhe [2015] — at July 23, 2015 00:38 UTC

    To start the day, we had a call with our supervisor Katrin - K, she congratulated us for our work, and we are very happy to see our work reflected. We also continued with our standup and made plans about the tasks that we would work on.
    Before lunch, we investigated about next tasks and we wrote down questions to our mentor and later we continued studying a course of CodeSchool.
    In the afternoon, our team had a call with our mentor Nico Hagenburger and he communicated us that our work was well, and we talked about our next objective.

    The next task will consist in insert buttons to copy HTML, HAML, etc , code examples.

    After we worked in our future blog post in which we wrote about our experience with the livingstyleguide’s gem. We believe that doing a compilation of information is very important to continue with our work.

  • How to deal with jargon when learning how to code

    Team Exercistas [2015] — at July 22, 2015 21:11 UTC

    The process of learning how to code involves restructuring the way you think, and for most people, it’s hard. What doesn’t make it easier is that they’re trying to do it while being taught in a foreign language: computerese. While thousands of people are learning how to program, the people teaching … Read more.

  • Day 16

    Team Delta Quadrant [2015] — at July 22, 2015 15:44 UTC

    Today we:
    * worked on our map implementation mainly through implementing tests for our new features
    * refactored the huge specs replacing the old ruby hash syntax and replace instance variables in before blocks into let statements which took us longer than expected. Big learning: when refactoring tests do that incrementally and let run every describe block or even every example right after the refactoring. So it's easier to find possible errors.
    * applied for 3 conferences in the raffle
    * read more about Factory Girl

  • Day 16 GirlsCodersWarsaw (RubyClerks)

    Team GirlsCodersWarsaw [2015] — at July 22, 2015 15:12 UTC

    Also today:
    Anna:
    * made a images upload feature to my training app with carrierwave gem
    * add image resizing ability into thumbnails etc.

    * add some environmental variables for my dropbox credentials

    Basia:
    * cleaned in my gemfile
    * learned how to use byebug gem

  • Wicked wednesday

    Team Cheesy [2015] — at July 22, 2015 14:56 UTC

    We had a long stand-up/preparing for milestone 2-session. And that is: creating a dashboard for the RGSoC supervisors!
    As proper UX-designers, we started with some user research by creating a Slack-channel for all the supervisors and asking them questions. We planned a brainstorming session and a Q&A with our client (Carsten from RGSoC ;).
    Also, we are applying for some conferences so team Cheesy can go on tour this summer too!
    And Roos made a responsive, animated GitHub-ribbon that you'll see appearing soon. And Maud enjoyed 2 coaching sessions today. One to solve a bug, and one on learning RSpec and Capybara! Yeah, it clicks between us!
