  • Day 7 - Diary my diary part 3

  • Day 7

    Team Delta Quadrant [2015] — at July 9, 2015 15:23 UTC

    Realizing that our dev environment we set up via vagrant is veeeery slow we decided to set up another local dev environment together with Christophe. While waiting for bundles installing and things compiling we learned more about the diaspora processes.

    We finally found a small issue to work on that was not yet taken (like many many before) or somehow very complicated (like most of them) and started working on it. The topic: adding a field to the export of user data.

    Furthermore there was a meeting at blacklane with the whole company where new colleagues and guests were introduced. So were we. And we not only presented shortly ourselves but also awesome Summer of Code!

    We also finished our introducing blog post and included a gif - stay tuned for that :)

    Also Maren published an article on learning to code (in german).

    Now we are up to meet our coach Andy.

  • 09.07 Team Cheesy - Learninglearninglearning

    Team Cheesy [2015] — at July 9, 2015 15:11 UTC

    Today was a studying day. Roos played around with a sandbox rails app to get familiar with HTML slim and working in the views of a Ruby app. Loads of googling and stack overflowing ;) Did some more tutorials on Slim, Ruby and Rails.
    Maud learned about FactoryGirl, admired her cute home-made Fake_id-generator-thingy and spent the afternoon studying on Rspec testing.

    We're finishing the day off by a coaching session, before meeting together with most of the coaches and solving our first issue with them live!
    Curious what issue? Hint: look at the activity page. Like it better now?

  • Team Tessie Day 6

    Team Tessie [2015] — at July 9, 2015 13:24 UTC

    We finished our to do app! We got the tricky aspects to work (local storage! hurrah!) and then I (Shelly) (the lesser gifted Tessie in the HTML/CSS department) played around with the layout and font and got a feel for everything. We made the app even more complicated than necessary by adding a clear button that removes the checked items from the list, but leaves the rest intact.

    We also started into learning CouchDB in preparation for refactoring our app this week.

    · Sarah: Set up todo-brownie (Vi highly recommended it, so I had to try it out).

    · Good news, we're finding it difficult to blog so thoroughly now. Why is this good news? It means that we've lots of coding to keep us busy! But don't worry, we'll update with each small goal!
