  • The day that we did our first commit!

    Team Fanxhe [2015] — at July 15, 2015 00:42 UTC

    We started the day with our standup and today, we talked about the gem and the task to add copy buttons to colors. Yesterday, while we were testing we had doubts about if we are going to apply the copy button to the color variable, the hexadecimal color code or both. We asked our mentor Nico, to solve this question before continue.

    After, we did to many tests, we had a few problems, but .... finally we have done our first commit and pull-request !! =)

  • Testing, testing

    Team Exercistas [2015] — at July 15, 2015 00:34 UTC

    • Made a schedule for the day
    • Fine-tuning communication: shared progress at the end of the day, evaluated where we were
    • Found that yesterday's perfect code commit failed to build
    • Learned a lot about Travis CI, testing, and Continuous Integration
    • Deep dive into tests--one test was buggy because of yesterday's refactor
    • Eventually reached a point where all tests passed perfectly but build still failed (???)
    • Started working on template pages: new view, new controller (we may have found an existing controller we could use?)
    • More vocabulary, decided we needed to write a blog post about vocab and learning
    • Sinatra tutorials

    Team DEIGirls [2015] — at July 14, 2015 17:47 UTC

    Today we finally beat Postgres! At last our databases are running smoothly :) However, github played some tricks and gave us troubles -.-
    We CSS'ed some stuff and form'ed some other. And Rosa sung a lot. Really, a lot. But she gave me an ice cream, so I'm not complaining.

    3. We had our first daily meeting to start with good agile practices
    4. We did some more system setup to make sure we have the same tools for pair programming

  • Rubyherzlein Log Day 9 -July 13!

    Team Rubyherzlein [2015] — at July 14, 2015 11:46 UTC

    Monday we started with a morning meeting with our coach where we went over our hex and binary assignments. We talked about the shell which has:
    a prompt
    an environment
    it has variables
    it remembers your history (when you hit the up commands)
    it can do syntax highlighting
    command completion
    the main thing it does is: it runs commands/programs
    It receives return status/code from programs (knows if the program was running successfully)

    we installed the fish shell and enjoyed customising it!

    Later in the da we met with our mentor and talked more about the setup of the SoundDrop app.

    We also talked about how a website runs in the browser:

    The browser makes a request for the URLhttp://localhost:8000.
    The request hits the Rails router inconfig/routes.rb. The router recognizes the URL and sends the request to the controller.
    The controller receives the request and processes it.
    The controller passes the request to the view.
    The view renders the page as HTML.
    The controller sends the HTML back to the browser for you to see.

    This is called the request/response cycle.

    In the evening we met with the whole SoundDrop group for our weekly meeting, and worked on rails tutorials, changing the description on the SoundDrop page, trying out Rubymotion.

    Team Fanxhe [2015] — at July 14, 2015 02:08 UTC

    Our day started reading an article about copy commands, because we are going to do the task to add copy buttons for the color examples in living style guides.
    We continued with our daily standup, and today it was too important, as we had many doubts about how we would start the task.
    Later, we had a class about the structure of the gem reading the code of our gem. We needed to know where we will add the code that will generate the buttons to copy colors.
    We read about javascript functions to find elements (html and css) . Also studied some Ruby core classes and their instance and global methods used in livingstyleguide's gem.
    Finally, we used the colors example generated with livingstyleguide previously and we added a javascript code to copy colors on click.
    Moreover, today is the birthday of Steffi, and crowd interactive and co-workers didn't forget to congratulate her. :smiley:

  • Bug Wars: A New Hope

    Team Exercistas [2015] — at July 14, 2015 01:25 UTC

    Sarah: I like my tea like I like my tauntauns... Lukewarm.
    - Getting a handle on vocabulary: pages and pages of terms I ran across and decided I should write down so I didn't get confused with Python (my main language)
    - Lots and lots of rails practice... getting very comfortable and much less confused when I look back at the exercism code
    - Smoothed out team specs with supervisor JZ
    - Pairing success! :D
    - Retro meeting with Whitney: we mostly reached our goals for the week (have agenda ready before meetings w/ mentor & supervisor, tutorials every day, work on communication, escalation protocol for getting unstuck, remember to take breaks!), "things that could go better" has switched to mostly technological issues rather than interpersonal issues, which is a great sign!
    - Mentor meeting with Katrina: going over pull request, squashing commits, weird things about file structure, next steps
    Tomorrow: finish up pull request for the menu, full speed ahead with language templates
