  • Week3 !!

    Team Gemini (Susi AI Server) — at July 20, 2017 06:08 UTC

    This week has been very hectic for both of us. One of us was busy with Placement Committee work and I was busy with my Research Project. So we took two days off !! (We'll cover it up on weekends, promise !! ) Ramya will be off to Tirupati (A pilgrimage in Andhra Pradesh, India) for the next 4 days. I'll miss her :(

    On Tuesday we had a call with our coordinator - Vaishali and had a nice 30 mins long video chat with her!!

    To be done today

    • Skills to be incorporated in entertainment - Jokes
    • Pr to be submitted for the same.
    • Learn about Base report (My previous PR is stuck because of that!! )

  • Week 3 (Jul 17 - Jul 21) Status Update #4

    Team 200 OK (coala) — at July 20, 2017 04:25 UTC

    Sometimes, when you have been poring over your code endlessly for hours altogether, trying to figure out what is making your builds go red, you miss out the tiny little details and errors which are in plain sight. Yesterday, we realised the true potential of the robust and thorough community review that coala provides and learnt the importance of attention to code quality and other details. After multiple iterations of updating our PRs according to the community reviews, we might just be very close to getting them merged! (fingers crossed)

    That's all for now!

  • Day 13

    Team Code Bears (diaspora*) — at July 19, 2017 20:26 UTC

    Today we mostly dealt with fixing the comments on our PR.
    We did a list of all the corrections needed to be fixed or discussed.
    On our way to fix the code, we had some problems with git (couldn't pull the code to one computer) and with ruby versions discrepancies. We got a lot of help from our coach working on this. Afterwords we jumped right into fixing and refactoring the code, making the relevant test fail and then making it green, very satisfying very satisfying. We corrected almost everything, the rest we will do tomorrow. You can see the entire comments and discussions here.
    In between we had a session with SC IT team in order to get external company emails and organized our 1st retrospective meeting :).

  • #Day13

    Team Codeaholics (Nextcloud) — at July 19, 2017 19:50 UTC

    What we have done

    • The day didn't start very good because Jona's laptop was broken :(. So we had to format it again and install Ubuntu. Then we installed Nextcloud and development environment again. It was easier this time.
    • We also took a team photo and shared it on our twitter account.
    • Then we had the call with our supervisor and coaches and we informed him about our progress so far.

  • Day 13

    Team Victorious Secret (The Processing Foundation) — at July 19, 2017 18:10 UTC

  • Day #15 - More 1-wire

    Team 276linesofCode (Tessel) — at July 19, 2017 17:50 UTC


    Its 15 days of RGSoC already!! Unbelievable right? 😍

    So, today was another day reading all about 1-wire and going into the intricacies. It's till a doubt whether implementing that would be possible, as none of us have that much of an experience with Embedded Systems. We also saw a few code tutorials explaining 1-wire in detail. Its more reading, and more resources and so on.

    Tomorrow, we would set out to resolve a few more issues that our mentor, Kelsey, has asked us to solve.

    Till then, Adios.

  • #Day13: Sluggish day!

    Team Bundledore (AFDC League Management System) — at July 19, 2017 17:33 UTC

    Meanwhile, excited for tomorrow, 2nd video call with the Rafal and Pete. Hope it goes well too :)

    - how to write Views with render function
    - how to write Django forms and Tests for Models and Views with Client

    Ines spent the morning with the article "Django at a glance" to understand what Django was originally build for.

Marie looked up the MVC and MTV in Django, and she read an article about Loose Coupling vs. Tight Coupling.

  • Tuesday Week 3

    Team Pivotal London (Babel) — at July 19, 2017 09:02 UTC

    8:45 Arrive at Pivotal for breakfast
    Emma's environment set up for Babel, all Babel tests running and passing.
    Kara worked on the simple plugin which needed a transform. ( ( Transform is now done,
    but would love to run it over a small piece of code. Also, it is possible that the generator needs a change as well--and I'm not sure how to do this (this is a blocker). Language changes necessitate quite a lot of small tweaks to almost all the major components of Babel! Decent learning exercise and as a point of pride I would like to complete it (plus it is good for my understanding of how the parts of Babel work together in practice); however, Winna had the very good point that this is an example of scope creep.
    Emma had a meeting with AI lecturer as research for her dissertation.
    Kara had a meeting with London pro bono head for Skadden, Arps regarding them working with codebar
    All meetings went well!

    **Also Emma and Kara played ping pong

  • Week 3 (Jul 17 - Jul 21) Status Update #3

    Team 200 OK (coala) — at July 19, 2017 05:32 UTC

    We got reviews on our PRs from the community, woohoo (The more you review code, the more your code gets reviewed)! A step closer to resolving the red builds (fingers crossed).
    Today, we'll discuss these suggestions with our coaches, incorporate the relevant ones and try to modify our PRs.

    That's all folks!

  • Day 12 & Day 13 (When we decide to TOSS a COIN)

    Team Serv0101 (Servo) — at July 18, 2017 22:16 UTC

    What we did:
    We are very serious about sending our first PR now. We both were stuck with errors. Today we decided to finish one of the issue first. And that was fun how we decided which issue we gonna work on first, we both are working on different issue, so we both wanted to resolve our own issue first. Finally, we decided to TOSS a COIN and guess what? I won ((issue number #10989 won) that was funny and interesting :P
    So now we are working on Sizes issue (#10989).
    Today was pretty good as we were able to resolve lot of errors (from 11 to 5 now). Hope fully we will send our PR by the end of this week.
