    Team Clojurians (re-frame) — at September 18, 2017 18:28 UTC

    Got cljs-devtools lib working!! We can format clojure data structures now! :D Also Saskia came from the other side and got a jsonML to hiccup parser, so when we put our work together we have some visual progress in visualising applicatoin state in the browser. It feels so gratifying because I (chris) have been really struggling with this all week, and finally it's working! I can code!

    • Tested the datepicker functionalities. βœ… We still have to get the selected date appended to the search query.

  • Day #58 - Meetings and Merged PR!!

    Team 276linesofCode (Tessel) — at September 18, 2017 18:03 UTC


    So, yesterday, one of the PRs, we had been working on to document a tutorial for pin.pull() functionality got merged!! But, there were some issues of it getting rendered with the Tessel's documentation Gitbook. This was because we had overlooked a mistake while running the Gitbook locally. So, we sent a Pull Request for the same. It has got approved and hopefully would get merged soon. We even had a weekly call with our supervisor, Vaishali updating her on what we have completed so far. She gave us some suggestions regarding writing a final blog for the Tessel community containing our experiences so far with them.

    Tomorrow, we have a weekly call with our mentor Kelsey. We are thinking about asking if we could write another blog for Tessel like we had written in the beginning. Apart from that, there are a few technical issues we are facing in one of our Pull Requests which is under review.

    Till then, Adios.

  • Day 55

    Team Victorious Secret (The Processing Foundation) — at September 18, 2017 17:10 UTC

    What we did today

    • Saumya was working on Issue 266. She was stuck on making the tab text black on selection. She tried using CSS selectors like focus, active. But nothing worked. Our coach Sachin Jani helped us with this issue. I realised my mistake of selecting only a single class while the same had to be applied on both the react-tabs and preference headings.
    • Cassie sent in detailed feedback for Issue 391, so Katyayani started working on it.

    What next?

    • Commit changes for issue 266 and soon file a PR.
    • Finish Issue 391.

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

  • Day 54

    Team Code Bears (diaspora*) — at September 18, 2017 15:37 UTC

    Today we made some amazing progress on our issue. After struggling a lot with the different methods in workers, mailers and so on, we figured out why our test was not passing. We actually solved a list of 6 steps that we had written to ourselves last week (and we thought it would take us at least 3 days to finish :) ):
    - draw a birthday notification life cycle
    - figure out where to add an argument in the send_notification method
    - finish the specs
    - add the view template for the email
    - add possibility to choose if user wants to receive an email notification
    - add a date to the text in the translation file (including a new method to call the date)

  • Day 56, week 10

    Team Code_Hoppers (OpenFarm) — at September 16, 2017 18:17 UTC

    Today was a productive day we managed to do a lot of things:

    1. We went through all the Openfarm backlog issues
    2. We closed issues that seemed like they were already solved
    3. We contributed to issue discussions by recommending how best to go about sove the issue and we asked questions where we did not understand
    4. We agreed that I will need to update the Openfarm readme to include a more detailed guide for first time users
    5. We did not code much but going through the issues and thinking them through was really helpful. It gave us a clear roadmap for the things we can work on in the future
    6. We updated the project board and its now more clear and one can get more recent issues to work on

    We feel like it was really a good day
    We thank our coach Sigu and our friend Stella Maris for coming through
    This wraps up a good week!!

  • Day 53

    Team Code Bears (diaspora*) — at September 16, 2017 11:52 UTC

    We started the day just where we left yesterday: tracking the path of one Bday notification. Apparently 9 files are involved in this on the server side. We still did not find our missing/wrong code, but some questions came up. Next thing to do would be to compare the Bday notification path to another notification path and see if there is a difference.
    Other than working on diaspora we fixed comment on our blog-post.

We've also had a call with our mentor today about our progress.

  • week 11 day 5

    Team Clojurians (re-frame) — at September 15, 2017 16:44 UTC

    We went through the cljs-devtools library with our coach Matt, which was super useful! Learned about protocols in Clojure and how they defer from inheritance. We spent the rest of the day continuing with jsonml parsing, and Saskia got interceptors to work in her re-frame application.

  • Day #57 - ESP!

    Team 276linesofCode (Tessel) — at September 15, 2017 16:44 UTC


    Today we decided to take a different issue at hand until we get a specific lead for the 3G Dongle issue. We started reading through the ESP-IDF Tool Chain installation and then the SparkFun ESP32 Thing Documentation. However, we saw that the ESP32 Thing guide uses Arduino Cores for their setup, which we wanted to avoid. Hence, we started looking into other documentation on the Tool Chain setup. We would spend some time on the weekends to work on this.

    Till then, Adios.

  • Day 55 Pivotal London

    Team Pivotal London (Babel) — at September 15, 2017 16:28 UTC

    We can't believe it's Friday already! Today we really prioritised working on our presentation - we have a practice lunch session on Tuesday and we want to be really confident about talking. It's always nerve wracking presenting your work, but we really want to do justice to both Rails Girls and Pivotal so we are going to dedicate a lot of time to it :) We started writing our blog post as well - we want to be ready well in advance :)

  • Day #54

    Team Codeaholics (Nextcloud) — at September 15, 2017 16:19 UTC

    • Started working at 09:00 AM
    • Continued working on the favorite contacts option.
    • Xheni thought that she broke the code because the ContactList was not loading anymore, then did a git reset β€”hard HEAD :( , but it was actually a bad commit pushed to master.
    • Learned a new git command which is git bisect. (good and bad) to find out the bad commit pushed to master.
    • Reviewed two PRs.
