  • Team Tessie Day 11

    Team Tessie [2015] — at July 16, 2015 13:03 UTC

    We continued to read more and more couch and pouch in the hopes of learning all of this (we're slowly getting there!) while also doing tutorials online.
    We worked with some of our coaches on things like the refactoring, and also AJAX.
    Shelly had to leave early but the people she was meeting with forgot so instead of meeting them and making up for the time lost afterwards, she sat outside their front door using their internet to work some more while waiting for about two hours.
    Amazon had their (optimus) prime day so we did get occasionally distracted buying a swimming pool. (hey tessie is a sea monster, we need to have a body of water somewhere near us, what better than a big paddling pool at Pilar's house?!)

    • What I did: Told the whole world (on twitter) about Vi's breakthrough yay! Also tweeted some teams, hehe.
    • Spent the day in the office playing around with ember input textarea and textfield hbs helpers and html versions of those. Asked mentor and coaches if they think this is a good idea since user injection can be dangerous.
    • Writing a belated blog post filled with 1 week of updates.
    • More proficient in git, branches, pr and markdown now.
    • Hope to spend the rest of the night finishing todobrownie and/or reading emberjs guide.
    • Areas for improvement: Thinking about how to learn more about dfp. I don't have an adsense account and it doesn't seem like I can make one w/o a legit traffic-ful website. It is limiting how much I can play around with ad tags (w/o vi's help) since 1) no idea how interface of a user on googleads is 2) what options there are for dfp 3) generating tag choices 4) immersing myself into it - basically, imagine being asked to write an essay about chocolate when you've never tasted one. I want to see a user's POV and dummy codes can only give an idea on how google magic works. tough. will need a way...

    Vi: Worked remotely today and read up about git submodules and in process of cleaning up the dfp code to have a clean base template to work with.

  • Day 11 - A day full of hard work too

    Team Binary [2015] — at July 16, 2015 04:25 UTC

    Today were the tests… omg the tests! We had some problems but we are improving our skills in TDD, also we did a new pull request today with the authentication complete! Tomorrow we will listing the gems in the users index and making tests with our rubygems development … Read more.

  • Hard but happy day

    Team Fanxhe [2015] — at July 16, 2015 01:20 UTC

    We started our day with the call to our supervisor Katrin. After, we continued with the task about the copy buttons, we needed to add a small change in the code.
    Also, we were in the Show Don't Tell session with the winner Gophergala solo app, Jöel Stemmer who is visiting Crowd Interactive
    He is from Netherlands and he has created an app called rehook for reviewing requests from external web services (like GitHub).
    We did some CodeSchool and read about Ruby and JavaScript.

    In the afternoon, we had a call with our mentor Nico and he approved the code for the task. Now, we are going to add a functionality to the copy event and CSS code for the visual part of it.

  • Triumph!

    Team Exercistas [2015] — at July 16, 2015 00:58 UTC

    • Tests were still being cryptic and confusing
    • Paired with remote coaches to figure it out -- the bug existed before we did anything. ALL FIXED, build passing!
    • Installed Travis CI on our repository so we can check builds before pull requests
    • Created new controller/view/route for language landing pages
    • Edited .bash_profile to make it easier to work with git
    • Checked progress against our original plan... we're 2 weeks ahead! (☆▽☆)

  • Rubyherzlein Log Day 11 -July 15!

    Team Rubyherzlein [2015] — at July 16, 2015 00:23 UTC

    Today we worked mainly on Rails tutorials, setting up and modifying apps, pushing to Heroku, in order to get a better handle on Rails before we start editing the SoundDrop app. Nynne had her weekly 1 on 1 meeting with Erik where they discussed pair programming and the structure of the summer program while Franzi attended lightning talks by SoundDrop employees and in the late afternoon there was a company briefing.

  • Rubyherzlein Log Day 10 -July 14!

    Team Rubyherzlein [2015] — at July 16, 2015 00:20 UTC

    On Tuesday we continued with our RSpec homework that Hannes had given us. Since we had a little bit of trouble with it, we also did some more research and wrote a blogpost about TDD. After lunch we met with Duana and were filmed for the "Schüler für's Programmiern begeistern" program! (see twitter for photographical evidence!). In the afternoon we met with Hannes and di wa more RSpec assignments. In the evening we met up in the weekly Ruby user group, where we learned to make a game with Gusu and Ruby!

    -Seed the database

    -Set an admin user-name and password on couchdb.

    -Made sure Solr was running and started rails server.

    Exploring GitHub and started to design Web Pages .
    Started to analyse and exploring the design ideas for Ruby documentation.
    We have started to analyze the templates from the design tool to HTML and CSS. Thanks to our Coaches and Supervisors for providing us constant support and guidance and for helping us to explore more and practically implement using Ruby.

    Thank You.

  • Hurray! Maud's birthday!

    Team Cheesy [2015] — at July 15, 2015 19:07 UTC

    After a happy morning-standup with multiple sharing of screens and experiences, we both went to work on adding stuff to the header of the teams app. Maud worked on adding an atom-feed while Roos was working on adding a "fork me on GitHub"-ribbon on the website.
    To celebrate Maud's birthday, we met to eat cheesecake and pair-program on a VERY extensive experiment with rebasing and merging to get a full understanding. Conclusion: we're not going to use rebase :)
    Roos finished the day with making her first very own vector image of a fork for a personal touch on the GitHub-ribbon design.

    Thanks, Roos, for your very nice present. She bought me a cute card and my favorite cheeses! <3

    Nidhiya is back!

    Here's what we did today:

    • coding, coding, coding!
    • decided on making a demo on the topic "exploring the universe"
    • set up a call with bartek, our mentor

  • Monkey monkey, where is the monkey?

    Team DEIGirls [2015] — at July 15, 2015 16:50 UTC

    This was the un-monkey-patching day! We un-monkied some code, did a few method overrides, removed some hidden fields, and got a drop-down menu working correctly. We also tried to deploy our blue diary to heroku, but the database (oh the database) is not cooperating, so, find out what happens on the next episode of Dragon B.. hem hem, Rails Girls Summer of Code!
    I sang a lot again and gave Inês an ice-cream again. Just because.

  • Day 11

    Team Delta Quadrant [2015] — at July 15, 2015 16:31 UTC

    Today we finished our work on refactoring some tests and made another pull request:

    Here we got some tips to improve the code from hound (a bot) and Jonne Hass (a diaspora core contributor). We had to pass two loops but hope now everything is fine even though the travis build is currently failing (but not because of our changes :)

    Besides we met our lovely mentor Lisa and planned the first steps to include a map representation of the user's location. Which is one of the major issues we want to solve during Summer of Code. We try to develop that feature test driven. Right now we are at the beginning of the planning process trying to find the right files and places in the code where to get information about the user's location and where to render the map. It feels a little ~~difficult~~ challenging because diaspora is using backbone.js and Haml for frontend stuff. We have to dig deeper into this …

  • RGSoC Day 10

    Team R'n'B [Ruby & Bugs] [2015] — at July 15, 2015 16:00 UTC

    What we have done today:

    • we did a pull request that was accepted, so we closed Issue #690: Attendance Button.
    • we squashed our commits into a single one, for PR.
    • listened to a lightning talk about networking/socializing
    • we discussed main steps to do in order to complete our new challenge, Issue#15: Comment Notifications.
    • we had a meeting with our coach regarding best approach to fix this issue.

  • Day 3

    Team Alster Hamburgers [2015] — at July 15, 2015 15:10 UTC

    1. We started bright and early at 8 with a session on Ruby basics with our coach Anastasia. It was really useful - plus we noticed we already learned some things on day 2 that now already sounded familiar, and some of the things she talked about later appeared in our own Ruby tutorials, so we seem to be making progress. (And coming up with new questions on the way!) :)

    2. We also continued our video tutorials and exercises. Hello, classes, attributes and arrays! Let's be friends. We also looked more into RubyMine (and found a handy cheat sheet to learn more shortcuts and tricks).

    3. More installations! We set up CouchDB and expected complications - to our surprise, it was really smooth and easy. Then, we set up the leap web app on our machines to get ready for really diving into our project, and instead met a few complications on the way... but that's a good thing because:

    4. This means we found the first thing we can contribute to our project! We will add to the installation documentation so future Mac users won't have to go through the same issues but will have the solution at hand (right now, it's only about Linux).

    5. We also got our first overview of Leap and the Leap web app that we'll be working on so we know in more detail what lies ahead.

    6. And now that we have Leap set up on our laptops, we're ready to have our first call with other Leap developers later tonight.

  • Day 11 GirlsCodersWarsaw (RubyClerks)

    Team GirlsCodersWarsaw [2015] — at July 15, 2015 14:50 UTC

    * morning standup with coaches
    * moved some code to collections partials
    * fixed error messages
    * added destroy action
    * did some css styling to make errors look danger ;)

    No one expects the merge disaster that occured. After merge conflict, which I believed I solved well, it turns out that I lost part of my yesterday and todays work. But happily thanks to github, I manage to recovered it.

    • morning standup with coaches
    • learning about RSpec
      • RSpec methods (describe, context, it, expect(...).to)
      • RSpec matchers (built in and custom)
      • good practices & general idea of testing
      • capybara (very user-friendly DSL)
    • setup RSpec and other useful gems:
      • capybara
      • faker
      • factory girl
    • did training test

  • Team Melbourne · #D11

    Team Melbourne [2015] — at July 15, 2015 06:05 UTC


    • Trying to still serve the dummy ad as a plugin on the ember part of discourse - Used the adsense initializer thinggo - that didn't work, now splicing through the dfp one. Update: Yay! Now it works.
    • Found out that the untracking issue in git had to do with a submodule (thanks to our coach Dane), we'll probably have to use this when packaging our plugin.
    • Going through to understand the google magic in gpt asynchronous and how that will work on ember ...


    • Pretty excited that I did proper coding again today, hope to get some breakthroughs soon!
    • Following from yesterday, been experimenting on getting a generic html box for input -> input should appear on banner. Ember doesn't seem to be a good idea b/c it'll have to be hardcoded, so I'm seeing if HTML will work.
    • Colleague recommended a rails object book to read. Had Morning Tea with the company where we were introduced. Discussed with Vi the functionality of the dfp plugin.
