  • Day 62, week 12

    Team Code_Hoppers (OpenFarm) — at September 26, 2017 19:46 UTC

    Today we spit the day between writing tests and sharing our campaign. We had a slow day to constant power outages but we hope to get a lot more done tomorrow.

  • Day #64 - Completed the PR!!

    Team 276linesofCode (Tessel) — 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.

    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 :(

    Things we did today:

    • Worked on the implementation of SearchView functionalities. βœ…
    • Implemented mapStateToProps() function for the FileBrowser container component. βœ…
    • Discussed about the End of RGSoC 2017 celebration. βœ…

  • Day 62 Pivotal London

    Team Pivotal London (Babel) — 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*) — 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) — 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¦„

  • Day 58

    Team Code Bears (diaspora*) — at September 26, 2017 07:40 UTC

    We are waiting for the review on our PR, so in the meanwhile we did some recap on DB queries we learned this summer and learned about db normalization in our coaching session.

    Team 276linesofCode (Tessel) — at September 25, 2017 18:23 UTC


    So, our mid semester examinations finally got over yesterday and we started with our Tessel work once again today. We had a doubt clearing session with our mentor Kelsey for one of our on going PRs. We both had a lot of fun today doing that line by line analysis of the code with Kelsey. So, we would be able to complete the PR in a day or two. We even made some progress with the 3G dongle issue since we were able to get the other Tessel we have connected to the wifi. So all the required packages have now been installed and the next step is to play around with the 3G dongle writing some shell scripts and then integrating them with the OpenWRT Framework.

    Till then, Adios.

  • Week 12 (Sep 25 - Sep 29) Status Update #1

    Team 200 OK (coala) — at September 25, 2017 17:04 UTC

    It is the last week of RGSoC and we can't believe it is all coming to an end. This week we want to refactor all our code, commit all the changes, and send in PRs with our final.

  • Day 67

    Team NK42 (Foodsaving and Foodsharing) — at September 25, 2017 15:53 UTC

    Today we started with adding information about testing to our Beginners guide. Now we covered all topics we planned to, so we asked @tilmann and @nick for feedback.

    Afterwards we wrote a new test that checks if a single user can give more than one feedback per pickup. We started to implement corresponding functionality but we couldn’t finish it till 3pm. The last hours we prepared our talk for the SoundCloud demo on Friday.
