  • Day 64 - Change of plans..

    Team Fusion (OpenDF) [2017] — at September 27, 2017 18:00 UTC

    Today we were supposed to meet coach Kasun and coach Imran, but we missed that session due to an unavoidable reason. πŸ˜• So we decided to have our coaching session with coach Tharindu today... 😊

    Things we did today:

    • Did the last touches of the SearchView implementation. βœ…
    • Started writing a reducer for the FileBrowser container. βœ… And there we could handle two actions already.
    • Had a coaching session with our coach Tharindu. βœ… He went through our work so far and gave us some tips polish up our implementation. And the best thing is , he's not anymore a remote coach but a local coach . 😁
    • Discussed about what to do for our celebration to wrap up RGSoC . βœ… Finally we could decide a date. And it is fixed now. πŸ—“βœ”

    Things to do tomorrow:

    • Continue to work on the reducer by handling the rest of the actions there.
    • Commit the changes made to the SearchView.
    • Discuss about the final changes made to the SearchView and the Redux part with coach Imran and coach Kasun.

  • Day 63, week 12

    Team Code_Hoppers (OpenFarm) [2017] — at September 27, 2017 17:51 UTC

    This week is moving on really fast!. We had planned to ensure that we close the pending issues on our branches after creating our conference campaigns, but seems we didn't meet this milestone.

    We plan to sit and look at the pending tests and issues this remaining week as the campaign goes on, we thank all those who have seen us reach this far :-)

  • Day #65 - Hello ESP32!!

    Team 276linesofCode (Tessel) [2017] — at September 27, 2017 16:59 UTC


    So, today although we had to work work on 3G dongle but we ended up spending some time on the ESP32 module instead. Today, after so many failures in the past, we were finally able to push the Hello World code successfully to the ESP32 module which our mentor had sent us. While working on the ESP32 module, we also went through a few examples about it which were their on a github repository. After that, when we were confident about its functionality, we opened the reach-wg repository in Tessel to look for issues related to ESP32 module. We found one issue of interest to us in which we have to implement an I2C communication between the ESP32 module and the accelerometer module of Tessel. But what our another challenge is that since the ESP32 module is not soldered to any pins, we would first have to think of how to solder it so that we may start working on the issue.

    Till then, Adios.

  • day 69

    Team NK42 (Foodsaving and Foodsharing) [2017] — at September 27, 2017 15:54 UTC

    We started the day with validation. With some help from Dave we made sure that a user is allowed to give feedback only once per pickup in the serializer. Afterwards we also found a solution to validate that in the model (with unique_together validator). For both variants changes in the test setup and tests itself were necessary, because we created several feedback objects there which didn’t pass the new validation. So we refactored our tests. Afterwards we started to work on the last necessary validation: checking if the pickup the user wants to give feedback about isn’t older than 30 days.

    In the Afternoon we worked on our Slides and the scipt for the SoundCloud Demo on Friday.

    Day 39:

    Hello World!

    For ifPairElseUnknown, today marks the last day of Rails Girls Summer of Code 2017.

    RGSoC has come to an end!

    Today we hosted a morning tea to present our Rails Girls Summer of Code experience and thank all those who helped us along the way.

    It has been a great pleasure working with our amazing team.
    They have all provided us with a wealth of knowledge, which we can take away and implement as we continue to learn.

    We had the amazing support of four coaches, Adel, Tim, Adam and Simon.

    • Adel has been an amazing support, while we have been here at Zendesk. She has made sure we had everything we need to work effectively on our project. She has also made time in her busy schedule to run sessions on Git and Javascript and cooked delicious treats to share with everyone.

    • Tim has provided support remotely. We have regularly sync with him over Zoom. We generally focused our sessions around TDD. Tim also opened our eyes to security. We find that Tim explains things in an easy to understand way and we really like his approach to TDD. He is also extremely patient and understanding as a coach.

    • Adam has regularly come to Zendesk to work one on one with us. Teaching us how to refactor code, better ways to write clean code and reviewing our pull requests.

    • Simon was a great help to Sophie, when it came to Linux and RVM issues. He provided great knowledge when refactoring our work, with clear explanations.

    Both Simon and Adam helped out early on with our applications before our team was selected to participate. They helped us understand which projects may be suitable for us to work on and helped us setup our local environments before the program started.

    Also a special thank you to Luis Ferreira who provided coaching to Jenny when she was in Portugal for the European Innovation Academy and who continues to support her even on her return to Melbourne.

    A big thank you to everyone at Zendesk for providing a welcoming and supportive environment for us to work.

    Thank you to our Project mentor Julia, it has been a pleasure working on your project and we look forward to continuing our work on

    Thank you to our RGSoC Supervisor Vi, it has been a pleasure getting to know you and the support has been fantastic

    Lastly, we would like to say a BIG thank you to the Organisers of Rails Girls Summer of Code and all the sponsors for making this experience possible. This has been such a wonderful experience, we have enjoyed the opportunity to contribute back to the community in a positive way. This is an experience we will never forget!

  • Week 12 (Sep 18 - Sep 22) Status Update #3

    Team 200 OK (coala) [2017] — at September 27, 2017 07:38 UTC

    We published our final (still hurts to say the word) fortnightly blog post, on essential software engineering practices that can be learnt and mastered through open source and how open source projects can help us bridge the gap between the skills we require at work versus those which we're taught in college. You can read it here. We'd love to know your thoughts about it!
    Our fortnightly blog series has received such an overwhelming response and we are elated about it!
    We also contacted one of the senior maintainers of the coala community in order to discuss about the coala perspective in our talk at Berlin. We'll have a call with him soon!

  • Day #61

    Team Codeaholics (Nextcloud) [2017] — at September 26, 2017 20:53 UTC

    • We pushed a small change to our PR and finally our second blog post is published
    • We worked remotely today
    • Xheni was very sick today and she was unable to work. Hope she gets better soon :(
    • Jona is still trying to fix the sort option issue :(

  • Day #64 - Completed the PR!!

    Team 276linesofCode (Tessel) [2017] — at September 26, 2017 18:59 UTC


    Today, we made the final changes required for the I2C tutorial Pull Request and now it is under further reviews. We were able to understand its code from the scratch and hence were able to give a nice description of all the functions involved in the Code for beginners. Hopefully, the PR would get merged soon after the Tessel Steering Committee members review it. Tomorrow, we have planned to complete the next task in our checklist that is 3G dongle.

    Till then, Adios.

  • Day 54-62

    Team Serv0101 (Servo) [2017] — at September 26, 2017 18:12 UTC

    Last week was pretty busy one. We have finally submitted our PR(Hopefully they will get merged this time).
    We had a small party with our supervisor last weekend. You can assume it as RGSoC End Party.
    We both are working on new issues as suggested by our mentor.
    Wrote a blog about our JSFOO 2017 conference experience.
    Sad to see we are at the End of RGSoC :(

  • Day 62 Pivotal London

    Team Pivotal London (Babel) [2017] — at September 26, 2017 16:02 UTC

    Today was spent working on cutting our presentation - it exceeded 40 minutes (whoops) and needs to be cut to 30, at a max.

    We had our last RGSoC retro with the Pivotal London mentors and it was SO SAD. We cant believe it's coming to a close :( we don't want it to be over. It was incredibly positive, and we hope that next year, if there is a London team, they will choose to work from Pivotal - they're so cool and lovely, it's hard to find a nicer hosting company.

    We also had our last call with Ines!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😭 😭 😭 We're devastated that it's now at this point. Who could have foreseen it coming this quickly!?! We spoke about how we both hope to help with the future cohort for the RGSoC, so we hope this won't be the end of our journey with this amazing organisation :)

  • Day 59

    Team Code Bears (diaspora*) [2017] — at September 26, 2017 15:44 UTC

    We and our last retro today and it was very nice. lots of good points raised and some improvement suggestions for next SoC. We kept recapping what we have learned this summer and talked with diaspora ppl to understand where our PR stands.

  • Day 61 Pivotal London

    Team Pivotal London (Babel) [2017] — at September 26, 2017 08:41 UTC

    We can't believe it's our last week!!!! This summer has flown by! On Monday, we made changes to the presentation that we received on Friday, and began to work through the new flow. It's now split more-or-less in to three sections, and is proving to be something that's taking up more of our time than we had originally thought. We began doing a method called "water microphone" in order to encourage us both to stop using our hands so much when talking, and rather look up to the audience. In the evening, we had our Refactoring Legacy Code Part 2 with Diego, which was really interesting.

    We cannot believe we are in our last week, and want to say thank you to Rails Girls Summer of Code for this summer - it's been absolutely amazing β™₯️ πŸŽ‰ 🎊 πŸš€ πŸ¦„
