  • Day 03 - sudo let me start

    Team perifericas (Speakerinnen) [2016] — at July 6, 2016 03:26 UTC

    More readings, more documentations, more tests, more preys too.

    We have an inspiring call with Ines, our supervisor. She was a 2015's RGSoC participant (and speaks portuguese .) so we get amazing tips to go through this first week.

    More tests and errors and finally we made it: setting up, configurations and requirements ok.
    We talk a lot through the day, Emma helped me with some issues like "why my profile isn't showing".
    We discuss about creating a Twitter account for our team and create a blog with Jekyll, but didn't worked out.

    Today we get in contact with another developers to become our coaches. We noticed some teams more than two and it's a better way out when we could not reach one or other coach. Ines cleared up some things about that for us and we sent some invites.

    What about plannings for the kickoff at friday? We are in! Remotely, but let's celebrate too. We made a list of things for food, decoration. It's so great to being part of this :)
    Tomorrow we are going to run more tests.

    See ya'll!

  • Day 02 - uninstall/reinstall

    Team perifericas (Speakerinnen) [2016] — at July 6, 2016 03:03 UTC

    So we decided to reinstalling to new distros Linux.

    I migrate from ElementaryOS to Korora (Fedora's remix) and Emma choose for Xubuntu.
    So this monday was just setting up everything.
    Meanwhile i was trying to setup a VM through VIrtual Box and Emma prefer to use Vagrant. We need to go through the requirements to start getting to know this techicle part of our project.

    We have issues with updating Ruby, running Rails, PostgreSQL, so we finished all the work at 2am.

    Our supervisor Ines is helping us do contact with our mentors and we chat a lot about all things with setting the enviroment.
    Hope tomorrow we can resolve some requirements and dependencies.

    What we are planning for the weekend:

    Geisa: i have to figured out what is happening. Can't update Ruby and resolve PostgreSQL' setting. Our coach User_X tried to help us, Emma tried too and i think the better is starting from zero. Installling a XFCE distro or go back to Fedora again. For the record: i use Elementary OS Freya. I've read all the forums trying to get some help.

    Emma will figured out and finished the setting of the enviroment. She couldn't update Rails and setting up PostgreSQL too. She uses Fedora distro.

    • Talk with our coaches, mentors and supervisor on monday or tuesday and discuss about the project;
    • Talk with our mentors about the issues we have to focus on (and have a litlle help with translating some issus in germany);
    • Vagrant settings and other requirements;
