We started our day with some tutorial videos and a meeting with our mentors where we briefly explained to them what we have learned so far and how well we liked the course. After the meeting we resumed watching some tutorial videos while also experimenting a little bit with GitHub because we had to figure out how to publish our blogpost. Then we had another meeting with our mentors where we reviewed our week so far and made some notes on what worked well and how to improve the things we didn't like. After the meeting we were working on uploading the blogpost to GitHub, which took us longer than we thought but we're extremely happy that we managed to pull our first request ever! We ended our day with some exercises and unit tests.

Today we were still struggling with the right places to put our code to render a map.
We are quite confused about what all the frameworks (Rails and backbone) are actually doing with the already existing coordinates.
Besides we gave a little talk to some blacklane developers who were interested in what we are doing. Find a gist to our talk here.
During lunch time we watched a talk by Robert Virding about language design.

Hangout with our supervisor, Magda, always gives us a lot of positive energy!
Anna: A few merges done. I finally completed two features, fixing all bugs in my training app (as far) and merge it to my develop branch on git. Learned by previous experience I didn’t merge anything by myself in order not to delete anything. So the merge is done and work’s on. But I guess I should learn more about using git. Started installing devise gem for authorisation logging in, but it’s not as simple as it would look like, unfortunately. I also learned how to solve merge conflicts.
Basia: I had to learn more about setters and getters, and attribute accessors. And a little bit reading about ruby methods, to know which one I should use to specific class. My service object isn’t complete yet.
Happy weekend! See you on Monday! :)

Team Melbourne  — at July 17, 2015 05:59 UTC
- Stand-up meeting with head coach who suggested we both work together on the same screen
- So we did, and that was an amazing idea. Seems to be common amongst developers for 2 people to work on one task and debate about things.
- By noon, we fixed the suggestions Robin gave us on the code
- By 3pm, we finished identifying the places we wanted to add the ad in Discourse
- By 4pm, we outlined our small, specific goals for the next 3-4 days.
The Ad plugin and our workflow has improved much in the last week. Best Friday Ever!

Our day started working in the hover effect for the color swatch examples, which is the visual part of our first task.
We had some doubts about using transparency in SCSS, but we were able to solve this problem using the transparentize sass mixin and we created other commits for this.
After that, we sent a message to our mentor Nico to define how we will add a hint text when hover effect is activated.
We had our daily standup.
Thanks to our mentor, we were able to continue with our task, we inserted a html div in a erb template, adding new conditions.
Team Exercistas  — at July 17, 2015 00:16 UTC
- Fixed the routes in the language template files
- Research on Sinatra routes & controllers
- Worked on the data being passed to the controller
- The API isn't structured in a way that makes it easy, so we asked our mentor to make a minor change to the API to make it easier for us to access the information we need
- TDD tutorials and more discussion of testing
- Mixolidia got a full sponsorship to TexasJS!!!

Morning Scrum Meeting
Reviewed Notes from coaching session on CLAide with Segiddins
Re- Read the CLAide Repo and Source Code to understand the issue and to get familiar with the structure
Read up on instantiation, initialization,Super Classes, Inheritance,
Ran into Berkeley Coach Sean Mackesey by accident while studying at a cafe and went over Bundler, Gem Spec Files and Gem Files
He suggested reading the Bundler Source Code (since CLAide is modeled after Bundler) and also that we understand why gem files, gem specs and bundler exist--when to use them and to study up on dependencies..especially dependencies of dependencies. Noting this here since this was an impromptu meeting and both my team -mate and I can benefit from this knowledge:
Continued working on https://github.com/CocoaPods/CocoaPods/issues/3684
- Went through the CocoaPods codebase. I think I finished the first task of this issue, to figure out where the targets are created.
- The next step is to write a test and run that test. Reading up on tests.
- Read up on Module etc in http://ruby-doc.org/

So, today we were finally able to deploy our blue diary on Heroku! Our fist app in Lotus is finally online! :D And we had to take it down because we still didn't get the hang on the authentication and we didn't want any unexpected inappropriate message submitted xD
There were some minor errors to correct. Yeah, they were minors, that doesn't mean that they were few...
This time was Inês who sang a lot (Wimoweh, wimoweh, wimoweh, wimoweh) and there was no ice-cream to anyone :(
Team R'n'B [Ruby & Bugs]  — at July 16, 2015 21:28 UTC

Spent the day reading about fixtures and how we can automate seed data in the demo app that we are building for Rails Admin. Also realised that the theme that we used for our demo app is not compatible with the latest version of the Rails Admin gem - so we've decided to make our own custom theme.

* morning standup with coaches
* learning about helpers
* wrote my first helper almost by myself
* saw how debuggers work
* learned about devise gem
Today I was trying to do my first service object. Well, I was able to create service object, initialize proper params, and create sample method returning true or false to check my params and to implement it in controller. It's time to put there proper logic.
And I have mess in my git again.
Team Cheesy  — at July 16, 2015 15:23 UTC
- Refactoring SASS-code and files from teams-app
- Read about SASS and structuring your styles in a RailsApp
- Daily stand-up with maud
- Screenhero on the atom-feed
- stumbling around with a CSS-only "fork-me-on-Github"-ribbon, failed.
Such a great day. Roos and I worked on the Atom feed (another little surprise coming soon!). The missing link was provided by coach André, who also gave me a super fun lesson on routes in Rails. At the end of the day, I met coach Yorick for a deep digging omniauth tracing and explaining session. (On a terrace, in nice weather, over Japanese noodles. O dear, this summer is all hard work no play ;-) ).

- We had a long audio conference with the Leap web app developers yesterday evening and it was really helpful. We chose our first project, and today discussed more with our mentors what our first steps will be to implement token-based user registration for the email web app.
- We also had a lunch session on using git and GitHub with our coach Jan, and will already put that to good use tomorrow when we will hand in our first...

- We also continued our ruby tutorial - already half-way through! Yay!
Team Delta Quadrant  — at July 16, 2015 13:19 UTC
What we did today:
- were happy about the merge of our second pull request
- talking and philozophize about project planning methods and our own experiences with it (eg. scrum)
- installing z-shell on Maren's computer
- planning our work on a new feature to show location on an open street map. We were figuring out how the architecture of the diaspora frontend works, where we have to put our code and from where we get the appropriate data.
- prepared our short talk about our project and our current issues at blacklane tomorrow
P.S.: we did our planning via post-its but we were looking for a free tool to build flowcharts digitally via twitter. We got so many suggestions <3 and started working with draw.io which also allows working collaboratively on a document!
