  • Day 2 - Team Cheesy

    Team Cheesy [2015] — at July 2, 2015 14:30 UTC

    Day two was a lot about cleaning up the Git-mess we created in day one :) Thanks to the helpdesk and our coaches and Maud's Git-readyness, we got the app up and running again, at least on Maud's computer.

    - Inspecting code of teams app
    - Installing and learning about slim and sass
    - coaching session with Hans on how to front-end a Rails App
    - studying tutorials on the MVC model and Rails in general
    Maud: With help of coach Yorick on the secrets of Git, a helpful tip of Carsten and my visit to the #helpdesk channel, I managed to write a Mini Manual for Working With Our Fork without Maud Messing Things Up Again in a dedicated channel on Slack, called #reference, where we store persistent information. And I had my first live coaching session with Thijs, mainly about testing. Found out we are both huge fans of Don't Make Me Think -- which I would happily recommend to every Rails Girl!
