  • Cheesy Upstream

    Team Cheesy [2015] — at July 10, 2015 19:13 UTC

    O what a day! Roos' avatar intervention was merged last night. From this morning on, all SoC-teams can enjoy a far better Activity experience. And there is more. The (cheesy-ish) blogpost Roos wrote about us, was live at the end of the day. Perfect timing! Maud closed a fruitful week with a Pull Request for fake Job Offer seeds.

    I started today with coding, which, after some reviewing by the one and only Carsten, got shrunk to ONE line of code. That's the Ruby way! I got a better feel for FactoryGirl and the use of it in dev environment, discovered git show-branch command (and got lost in it). Got confused over a deceitfully simple looking issue, which I am supposed to solve.
    And giggled a lot over Roos' blogpost. And my one line of code.

  • Friday July 10th, 2015

    Team CocoaGems [2015] — at July 10, 2015 19:11 UTC

    Morning Scrum
    Session with our coach Rachel Myers about her experience entering the tech industry.
    Both of us read the 'Get of Your Horse and Stop Coding like a Cowboy'

    Karla :
    took a quick look at a
    finished reading chris pine's ch. 4 on More About Methods
    practiced using random number generation in RB using puts srand 1776 to return the same random number used in a sequence
    For example if we give rand an integer of 7 - the number generator will return 7 possible numbers from (0-6)
    lexicographical ordering : puts 'cats' < 'dog' and returns true because in dictionary order c comes before d thus its value is smaller.
    Worked on Chris Pines Methods and Flow control
    Revisited github-teacher/projectmanagement-cookbook for keeping track of our weekly milestones - Loren Allen Smith project

  • Day 8 GirlsCodersWarsaw (RubyClerks)

    Team GirlsCodersWarsaw [2015] — at July 10, 2015 19:01 UTC

    Some organization stuff:
    * morning standup with coaches
    * hangout with our supervisor, Magda
    * writing introducing our team to RGSoC blog

    * fixed validations for selection in form
    * added link button to creating form in my training app
    * my two first issues are done, yay!
    * learned about gitflow

    * I had to face with my coaches’ answers to my very big (too big) pull request
    now I know how important indentations are!
    now I know that convert all spaces to tabs isn’t good idea and can cause syntax problems in .yml files…
    I made some fixes (crumpled sticky notes) and I have at about 20 more to do… Yeah, it is this long list on picture :)

    Team CodeBenders [2015] — at July 10, 2015 18:06 UTC

    Friday hug to all! :D
    Faced a few issues while working with Git because of multiple Git accounts on a single machine. Spent some time understanding and resolving the same. Also decided on a workflow which involves us to start using branches instead of commiting to master straight away.

  • Team Tessie - Day 8: Tessie on Tour! ....kinda

    Team Tessie [2015] — at July 10, 2015 17:12 UTC

    Today we are working from Pilar's house which is just outside of Vienna. We brought two of our coaches with us today and set about to master CouchDB....or at least to understand it! (We also brought lots of sweets and treats, learning is always easier with Manner and Haribo...)

    After Igor coached Ramon for a bit, both of them were set up to help us with installing and getting started. Hurrah! We have made databases to play around with and get used to.

    We had our supervisor call today with Laura, who is standing in for Marcus while he is building sandcastles in Croatia. We chatted about what's going on so far, how our first week treated us, and what we have coming up for the next week.

    A while later we had a catch up call with Jan and Ola, our hoodie mentors, and three of our coaches - Igor, Ramon, and Aaron - joined us too! We all spoke about how we found the first week, what way we think we can improve things or what we loved about the week. We are on track with our project plan so far and we all decided that it doesn't need to be adjusted or changed. Yay!
    We took a Friday hug photo for RailsgirlsGÖ who tweeted their hugs at us a little earlier and then settled back in to get more CouchDB stored in our brains.

  • Day 7 Rubyherzlein

    Team Rubyherzlein [2015] — at July 10, 2015 15:01 UTC

    On Thursday we met with one of our mentors, Duana who is also product owner of our project. We had a session on the model view controller, how it works and started to look at the code in the SoundDrop app to get an overview of how it looks.
    We had our weekly meeting with our supervisor on Google hangout and talked about the iterations of the project, tracked our progress. The first week and a half may feel a bit slow going, but it was really nice to see that we are actually following the week-by week plan pretty accurately.

  • Day 7 - Darkfish and rdoc

    Team Alpha Ruby (α ❤ ✌) [2015] — at July 10, 2015 12:57 UTC

    We looked into the rdoc and darkfish code and also verified the standards
    used for rdoc development. Learning by breaking things, restarting
    and doing things right.
    It is wonderful to have version control :-)

    We are concluding our review of web technologies (html, css).

  • Team Melbourne · #D8

    Team Melbourne [2015] — at July 10, 2015 06:31 UTC

    It was a serious day.
    · Had our weekly meeting with Sara, and Adel was there to join us.
    · Head coach for Redbubble, Dane, sat down with us to explain the adsense.js.es6 file and injection code tactics in databases.
    · Managed to get the DFP ad onto the front page hardcoded. A good indicator that the tag provided works on Discourse.
    · But, hitting a wall right now because a DFP plugin and Adsense plugin already exist, the first not working but the latter is. How can we extend its functionality? Make it better? These are the 2 biggest platforms with most users.
    · For now, we've decided to start from the basics - get a DFP plugin to display 1 dummy ad box over the weekend/ early next week.

    PS: The plugin is usually 20-50 lines of code. Trust me, not as easy as it sounds.
    PPS: Seems like Fridays tend to be the most difficult of days...

  • Pull request and Gem model

    Team Binary [2015] — at July 10, 2015 04:15 UTC

  • A productive day

    Team Fanxhe [2015] — at July 10, 2015 01:13 UTC

    We have begun the day with our daily standup and we did the plan for the rest day.

    According to the plan, our coach showed us the structure of a gem and also the livingstyleguide gem’s structure , now we understand it better :simple_smile: and we learned new git commands.


    After that we continued studying and researching about the livingstyleguide gem and tested it.

    Before, we went out for lunch we are played Nintendo64 (Super Smash Bros):)


    When we returned to the office, we asked questions about our doubts and our coach continued explaining the livingstyleguide gem’s source code.

    We finished the day studying and doing more tests.

    We are very happy because, we now understand better the structure of a gem and also the livingstyleguide gem’s structure.

    Today we created some applications during Hackday. We have learnt a lot about JavaScript, but also used pHp and Rails to develop our hacks. We also learnt about how to create an add-on with SDK & cfx tools (Python) and implement it into our Firefox web browser. Everything ended with Demo and a beer.
