  • Day 15 - Brazil <3 Portugal

    Team RailsGyn (RGSoC: The Teams App) — at July 21, 2017 23:25 UTC

    Today we talked with our supervisor InΓͺs Coelho, we talked a little about Game of Thrones and the empowerment of women in the series.

We have also implemented some features that are independent of the previous issues from which we are awaiting the merge of our PR.

  • Day #17 - Meetings and Issues

    Team 276linesofCode (Tessel) — at July 21, 2017 19:15 UTC


    So, today was again remote working for both of us. We short - listed three issues to tackle today and over the weekend. Both of us then took one issue each. One of us even sent a PR for the same to get the issue reviewed.

    We even got in contact with one of our coaches, Diksha. We planned out how we would be implementing one-wire protocol with her. He would starting with the implementation of the library tomorrow.

  • Day 15

    Team Code Bears (diaspora*) — at July 21, 2017 19:04 UTC

    Today we worked on further comments on our PR, got git messed up again and managed to solve that finally. The build returned green!!! we hope to see a merge in the beginning of next week :)
    Because the we couldn't figure out the git flow yet, we dedicated our coaching session to git basic. We spent 2 very useful hours on this topic and gonna pick it up from the same point next week. As diaspora flow refers only to one person working on a specific branch, we need to figure out how the flow would be with 2 people working on the same branch.
    Other then that, one of our laptop died and didn't seem to wanna become alive again. Task for the weekend: fixing the laptop with hopefully no data loss...

  • Day 16

    Team NK42 (Foodsaving and Foodsharing) — at July 21, 2017 16:07 UTC

    Ines finished the second chapter of the Django REST framework tutorial learning about Request and Response objects as well as different possibilities to construct API views. After discussing the code of the tutorial with our coach Daniel she started with the third chapter. Furthermore she committed the short text about Foodsaving hackathon to the Foodsharing blog repository and took care about some organising issues.

    Marie discussed the Views in 2nd chapter with her brother and he explained her what are all doing while using response function. They also played with HTTP status codes and her brother explained why the usage of HTTP status code 500 is not good for user. They went through the request method POST that was not clear at all and how it can change data in database. Later on, Marie had a call with Ines and we explained each other how we understand the 2nd chapter and updated each other with progress. Marie's brother also suggested to use PEP8, Flake8 and fix some bugs in Foodsaving code. We try to agree on meeting session with Stefan who understands the Flake8, PEP8 very well. Marie finished the 3rd chapter about class-based views and started with 4th chapter of Django REST Tutorial. At the end of day, she committed a Foodsaving hackaton photo in the Foodsharing blog repo and created a Doodle schedule for upcoming recap meeting together with Ines.

  • Day #16 - Hardware!!

    Team 276linesofCode (Tessel) — at July 20, 2017 18:25 UTC


    Today was remote working for both us. We scrolled through a list of issues that our mentor suggested we could work on. After that, we got our Tessel modules out and experimented with them.

    One of us tried out the Servo Module. While working on that, an error occurred because of some issues with the Update Version of the Command Line Interface for Tessel. After a lot of tweaking around, uninstalling and reinstalling the software and changes in the .npmrc file, we were helped by a community member. This issue was basically being faced by everyone here. We love how being part of an Open Source community meant we could get help from anybody! The issue was resolved by degrading it to a lower version. You can have a look at our Servo module at work here.

    Along with this, we even played around with LED s. We tried making them dance, making various patterns with them, hence, understanding functionalities of digital and analog input and output. It was so much fun! 😍

    Tomorrow, We would be picking up an issue and start working on the same.

    Till then, Adios.

  • Day 15- A Happening Day!

    Team Fusion (OpenDF) — at July 20, 2017 17:50 UTC

    We started our work at 8.00 am and we had so many plans for the day, including the implementation of the search query bar. Eventhough we thought of achieving all the tasks for today, we had to postpone some of the tasks, due to a very important Conference.

    Things we did today:

    • Started the day by checking if our PR for the blog post has been merged. And it was!! βœ…
    • Met our Scrum Master and discussed about the current status of the project. βœ…
    • And one of us were having few issues with the implementation of the search panel. And we could solve that! βœ…

    • And of course, one of us, presented her work at BAT Conference (Business Law and Technology Conference) , held at APIIT Sri Lanka. βœ… There were lots of interesting researches. By the end of the conference, there were very special moments from the conference, to celebrate! πŸ˜ŠπŸŽ‰πŸŽˆ πŸ’ƒ
    • And last but not least, our first blog post is published now!!! ( βœ… πŸŽ‰

    Things to do tomorrow:

    • To have a call with our remote coach Tharindu and coach Anuradh.

    • Read more on Redux.

  • Day 15

    Team NK42 (Foodsaving and Foodsharing) — at July 20, 2017 16:46 UTC

    Marie and Ines summarised what they have learnt about the Foodsaving architecture and the technical environment in 1,5 page text. We already asked one of our coaches for feedback and will share it with all next days.

    Together with Daniel, Ines analysed the existing tests in Foodsaving project and got a first idea how to test the code we plan to write for the issue "Feedback for finished pickups #253" (test can ask: is there something at the url the feedback should be).

    Afterwards Ines did the recap of the first chapter of the tutorial about Serialization.
    Marie did the recap of the 1st chapter as well and dealt with these topics: decorators, is_valid(), serialization and deserialization in Django shell and Views.
    Marie finished the 2nd chapter of Django REST tutorial and can display page in both formats - browsable API and JSON.

  • Day 14 - Finally some progress in React

    Team ImpactDevs (WorldBrain - Verifying the Internet with Science) — at July 20, 2017 16:35 UTC

    Today we spent figuring out the quirks for React while using Pouch and Webpack. Webpack is actually quite tricky to figure out how to install correctly to compile all the output files. But we had a meeting with a coach this morning that helped us to figure it out :) So I was finally able to render a table today- YAYYYYYY! Jess is still having fun with Pouch and spent today trying to return a pouch doc from a promise.

  • Day 14 of RGSoC

  • Week 3 - Day 14

    Team berlin diamonds (Discourse) — at July 20, 2017 15:10 UTC

    We had a little missunderstanding in the morning about some pushes to github, but found a solution before noon.
    Our mentor gave us new tasks. We
    - refactored the code of our plugin to wrap certain functionalities into methods
    - built the plugin's functionality to be more reusable for other plugins
    - committed the changes to a new branch called sync-method
    - said goodbye to one of our coaches, who is leaving the coaching company

  • Day 14

    Team Code Bears (diaspora*) — at July 20, 2017 14:53 UTC

    Today started with a very productive retrospective. We are really happy about the outcome and we feel like we are on the right track :) Thanks to all our coaches for all the support in the past weeks!
    Then we had a coaching session about Continuous Integration. We learned about the concept in general and ran the checks (pronto) that we actually should have run before our first PR :)
    After that we went back to the comments we got on our PR, ran pronto again and fixed the small things that it was warning us about.
    We made the decision on having the pod_name instead of "Diaspora*" in the header as it was suggested in our PR.
    Then we ran all the tests and checks (rspec, jasmine, cucumber, pronto) and got all of them green except for cucumber. As the failures were not on parts of the code that we touched in our work, we decided to commit and push. We will ask on the PR about the failing cucumber test.
    In this process we also learned a lot about discussing with the community and running tests and checks before opening a PR.
    Now we're waiting for more feedback from the project.

  • Day 14

    Team Victorious Secret (The Processing Foundation) — at July 20, 2017 14:43 UTC

    What we did today

    • We started off at 11 am today after returning from college. We first worked on Issue 385 as specified in the comments of our PR. We completed the desired work.
    • Then we again tried our hand on Issue 383. This time we found a better source on how to add a dialog box with cancel event handler. We read about Dialog content, dialog title, openDialog etc. But after adding the code, the app didn't display anything. We checked the console and found some issues and then tried debugging them.

    Agenda for tomorrow

    • Meet our coaches. Ask for their assistance for Issue 383.
    • Start working on other Issues.

    Team Victorious Secret signs off for today!
    Stay tuned for further updates.
