Maud: The day started promising, with team-standup and coach André mapping a plan. It turned out to be not my most productive day. Decided to take it easy for recuperation. The day ended great: my teamie & I met with our SUPERvisor Lieke. Tomorrow I will have a plan of attack to conquer the team's Atom feed. Promised :-)
Roos: worked some CSS magic to make to activity feed look nicer. The result will be live...tomorrow! Wait for it :)

What we have done today:
After our planning breakfast, day seemed beautiful and bright. Until the storm arrived.
Our main frustration today was that internet was down most of the day. So we relied on books and .pdf from our local storage.
Still, our learning path continued, like:
- Planning for next day over the phone with our amazing coach Robert.

This was our team's first official RGSoC day so it was dedicated mostly to meeting the team and getting set up for good start:
- Sitting down with some of our coaches and mentors to plan our next few days and put together a big to-do list
- Getting Mumble and IRC set up to communicate with the project team
- Team things like selecting our blog post dates and finishing our team photos
- Having a call with our supervisor
Yay! We're excited for day 2!

* morning standup with coaches
* hangout with our mentor, Torsten
* learning a little bit about rendering
* learning about partials
* learning about flash messages
* added flash messages to creating form in partial
This is not my best day, actually :D
*I’ve learned (and that was a painful lesson) that after each merge you have to run your app and check everything several times. And I didn’t. And I lost my database. And my postgres got crazy. And then it made me crazy too.
*I spend a lot of time looking for what’s wrong with my postgres. And I didn’t find it. And probably I have to back to sqlite.

Since we are now so much into Rspec refactoring we decided to take existing tests to refactor them :-) We were pretty much inspired by betterspecs.org.
Here are our results until now: https://github.com/TeamDeltaQuadrant/diaspora/tree/6192-refactor-Rspec-syntax
Besides we got another coach. Yay! Btw it's so nice to have all these nice and helpful people around us.

Vi: Going through video 1 to 20 of Mastering Emberjs by CodeLogical and putting up a blog posting about the learning.
Sarah: Fiddling around with ways to get the dfp plugin to work, bouncing back and forth between that and CodeLogical's videos.
Mondays are the best because there's food in the office!

Vi: A lifetime ago, when I was doing work as an accountant, I had a fantastic boss named Reynold who was talking about learning being a bunch of dots that, with time, gets linked together. I'm starting to feel that the dots are still very apart but hopefully they'll soon come together. Today, … Read more.

I've been meaning to blog about this for awhile now. Let's take a look at some random and possibly cool things I've discovered lately: What is Migration? I heard this word being used around the office and decided to search for the formal definition of it instead of convincing myself that I know … Read more.

Maud: I browsed the repo on beginner-friendly issues, and found a nice one on pagination. It is soo usefull to get feedback on every few lines of code you write. I learned all (?) about the Kanimari pagination gem, found its configuration initializer, learned that scopes come in all forms and sizes and formats, and got puzzled by a weird wordwrap in my editor. To space or not to space, that was the question.
Styled the activity page. Tried to rebase my branch with master, fucked it up, spent 1,5 hour trying to make it neat again. Even tried to delete my useless commits with interactive rebasing, failed, gave up and copied everything to a new branch :$ but it works, and that's what counts ;) finished styling and assembled some questions for my coaches tomorrow!

Ready to conquer a FactoryGirl task,which turned out less complicated than I expected, due to all the work I did on Friday. Yay. Tried to understand the inner workings of the GitHub OAuth log in, for the umphiest time. Decided that the summer is long, and that I better start with some easier issues. Actually writing some code is probably better than just clicking through my repo. Yay again!
Spent the rest of the day on the lovely street markets and terraces of my beloved Amsterdam. Where I encountered at least 40 horses. I kid you not!

Sarah: Did some revision and additional reading.
· @codinghorror's explanation of MVC here
· codelogical's youtube series on ember (16/25 parts). I definitely learn faster with videos and practice as compared to reading long guides.
· git branching (the diagrams really helped) here
· railstoember guide - which didn't really help me much since I had no previous experience on rails
· learned about open source licensing - thanks to Vi and my brother!
Reflections: amidst increasing difficulty, trials and challenges, I found many things I'm grateful for in the last 8 working days:
· lovely support network from coaches, mentors, our supervisor Sara, and the rgsoc community as a whole
· having been chosen for this 3 month program in the first place
· being constantly challenged
· my first time: using github, learning ember, doing an open source project, formally working on code outside of school, using a mac, learning about advertising plugins
· and most importantly, my sensible and (more knowledgeable about adv plugins and git and macbooks) pair, Vi!

We just had an stressfull day:

Another amazing day! We met with our coaches today. They helped us find a nasty error we've been having since morning. We were trying to make a demo using impress and however we tried we just couldn't get it to work. We must have gone through our code for nearly fifty times and still we couldn't figure out what was going wrong. We tried changing the css, the html, tried googling, and even changing browsers but nothing worked. By evening we were exhausted and we asked our coaches. He took one look at the code and started laughing. We didn't understand what was going on. Then he pointed out that we had used "href" instead of "src" for linking the js file!! The JS file was not being linked at all!! :P
Then there was a launch party for Women TechMakers in the building we work and we attended it. We got the chance to talk about our experience with RGSOC and talked about how we applied and then got selected. Altogether it was an amazing day and a great end to a great week!!

* Went through meta.discourse to understand ad issues further.
* Using dev tools in Chrome to add a breakpoint for the push empty object to array for js.es6 for a discourse site already serving ads.
* Looked into more detail in the reloading issue.
ps. had nothing else to do on a Sat night...

Yesterday evening we met with our coach Andy and he helped us greatly with our very first diaspora issue by explaining us the proper use of Rspec in context of our changes.
After attending "TechFriday" (watching interesting Conference Videos while eating lunch) we continued work on our issue and quickly stumbled into
.to_jsonDate formatting problems. But at the end of the Day we made our very first pull request!
This weekend Julia is super exited to learn some functional programming at the Clojure Beginners Workshop!
