  • Day 6

    Team Delta Quadrant [2015] — at July 8, 2015 16:14 UTC

    Today was a kind of frustrating day. We decided to work on our first small issue to make a small first pull request. As it turned out it already took ages to find a small issue that is suitable for us. Those who seemed to be were already claimed by somebody else who apparently didn't work on it during the last months :(

    So we decided to write some tests but get stuck on one of the existing tests failing before we changed anything. We had some nice conversations with a developer in the IRC-Chat but couldn't find the problem. But: we opened an own issue on that topic :)

    Other things that worked well :)
    * we purchased tickets for #CCCamp15 in August
    * we joined a dev tech talk at blacklane (topic: shortcuts, skripts etc. that make developer's life easier)
    * we had great coffee with probably the smallest take away cup ever at double eye
    * we read about the testing workflow in diaspora
    * we set up a meeting/hack day with our mentor Lisa next week
    * we set up a meeting with Christophe tomorrow for helping us with the problems above
    * Maren had a phone call with Team Techlyte
    * we arranged a lunch meeting with all Berlin based RGSoC teams

    - Coaching session with Andre creating a sandbox Rails App for Roos

    - resolving our first issue? and our first extensive PR conversation on GH

    - Dived into seeding our dev database with fake data
    - And came up with a bunch of job offers and users :-)
    - Racked my brains trying to solve a syntax error, which came down to a comma, of course.
    - Ended the day extremely happy

  • RGSoC Day 6

  • Day 6

    Team GirlsCodersWarsaw [2015] — at July 8, 2015 16:02 UTC

    It’s middle of the week and so much work to do. So many issues waits to be completed.
    Anna: A tough day for me. I was trying to migrate the database, which is not very well-developed actually, from sqlite to postgreSQL, but due to pgadmin bug I wasn’t able to do this by myself. PostgreSQL migration, I will get you one day, just wait! But not today.
    I also add some actions to my training app’s controller and some basic views, just to make sure everything is working fine.
    Basia I cleaned up in my stylesheets - they are beautiful and clear now ^_^
    and I done one issue - a little bit of ruby and more thinking about rails best practices and how to keep my architecture elegant. I think that till now it looks pretty well!

    Later, we had our daily standup with our coaches and we organized the rest of the day and the tasks to be done.

    Team Melbourne [2015] — at July 8, 2015 00:00 UTC

    Vi: Today, I was not well so I worked from home. Working from home has its upsides. I’ve been in bed on the computer the whole day (although I don’t think that’s something to brag about) and it’s super comfy in PJ. The downside of working from home is that I’ve been eating biscuits, rice … Read more.

    Morning Scrum
    Pictures on the roof with the Rachel M. and Ross and Paisley the Pug at GH
    Gathered Pictures of remote coaches and mentors

    Learn To Program with Chris Pine- Variables and Assignment, Mixing it up, More About Methods sections

    Session with Rob Rix on iOS programming for a project to better understand iOS development and CocoaPods.
    Trouble with Rob Rix - why our About and Contact page was not loading in Local Host 4000- we found that the content.yml url sections of this pg needed a .html extension to make them load in the Local Host so that we can test our changes before committing them.
    Edit the contact information and the contact form on the Contact site on our blog.

  • Day 5 - Improvements ahead

    Team Alpha Ruby (α ❤ ✌) [2015] — at July 7, 2015 22:09 UTC

    We talked with our mentor about the project direction. Which technologies are important to
    look at and how we can make things better for the documentation redesign.
    This lead us to having an initial look at the darkfish generator, which we are going to replace in our project.

    Some tickets related to organization have been closed on github and we made sure that all tasks
    mentioned by our supervisor have been completed.

    Beyond doing initial brainstorming for the project, we continued with reviewing HTML, CSS and Ruby.

  • Day 5 - Diary, oh diary!

  • Day 5

    Team Delta Quadrant [2015] — at July 7, 2015 16:12 UTC

    * we played a little bit around with our "Game of life" and Gosu and improved the code with rubocop
    * we also watched the video "The power of abstraction" by Barbara Liskov - great woman, very interesting topic though we didn't understand everything :) AND by the way: seems to be a great resource of tech talks.
    * we prepared our blogpost for next week following these instructions
    * set up a meeting with our coach Andi
    * discovered Lena Reinhard's talk about "nothing" - basically about diversity in tech. Have to watch it later
    * got ice cream in the office :)

  • Team Cheesy 07.07: Avatars oh avatars

    Team Cheesy [2015] — at July 7, 2015 15:43 UTC

    Except for our daily stand-up and the weekly mentoring session with Carpmeister and his way-too-cute newborn son, today was all about GitHub avatars. Like everything this summer, simple tasks that coaches, mentors or any other pro's describe as "easy" tend to last at least two days ^^
    Adding avatar pictures to the activity stream first made us encounter a lot of problems with prerequisite things. So two screenhero sesions later, finally we got halfway. To take our minds of things, we started to work on the blogpost for tomorrow. Both are to be continued! :)

  • Day 5 - GirlsCodersWarsaw (RubyClerks)

    Team GirlsCodersWarsaw [2015] — at July 7, 2015 14:01 UTC

    A morning standup with coaches sum up our previous day and made plans for futher work. New issues are coming!
    Anna: I started with a quick review of adding and updating records to the database. Then I made first commit in the project! I pushed my app to the github in order to fulfill my first issue. Actually I made a first branch on my project and made a pull request in order to merge it if it’s finished. Learn about adding files to .gitignore and some useful commands on git, like removing files and folders, changing branch to work on, adding a new remote. I also put some validations to the model after learning about it.
    my desk

    Basia: I had to clean up in my branches - now everything is clear and bright! I was reading about javascript and jquery functions which I used yesterday to be sure I understand it.

    And we have a barbecue with our coaches in the evening today!
