  • Day 55: Primeval Turquoise Pasta Popcorn

    Team Popcorn (Nextcloud) [2018] — at September 18, 2018 15:40 UTC

    Today's Progress:
    - Jessica: Worked on the avatar management preview and options menu.
    - Arati: Two merges in one day! Admittedly one was just a tiny little fix but that's still a record for me.

    It's great having App Maintainer and Jessica on riot to ask for help from or just to shoot the breeze with.

    Public Speaking

    • Spoke at a Lunch and Learn
    • Worked on our feature for Exercism

    After weeks of encouragement from our coaches, our mentor Katrina, and random ThoughtWorkers, we signed up to give a presentation at a ThoughWorks, our host company. It would be an opportunity for us to tell everyone about Rails Girl Summer of Code, our project Exercism and what it was like being Rails Girls at ThoughtWorks.

    After signing up, we spent the next four days worrying about what we were going to say, how it would be received and wondered if we would fail miserably. All of our worrying was for nought. Amalia began by talking about the gender imbalance in open source contributors and how Rails Girls Summer of Code started in a effort to ameliorate this problem. She then give a brief history of Exercism and gave a walkthrough on signing up as a user, on using the platform and also how to become a mentor.

    Lori continued by talking about some of the things we worked on this summer on the project and describe the feature we are working on for Exercism. At the end of the talk she described what it was like being a Rails Girls at ThoughtWorks, emphasizing the importance of having a supportive environment when you are entering tech.

    It was a very positive experience. The best part was getting an opportunity to share with the TW community how much we have benefited from having them as a host company, professionally as well as emotionally. Our journey into tech has been a long and interesting path. It was here at TW where we grew. It was also a chance for us to share how important they were to our confidence.

    Our feature
    With our talk behind us we returned to focusing on our feature. Amalia figured out how to use ActiveRecord and wrote the code to display some user data in a view. A perfect ending to another amazing day.

    Team Sectumsempra (Chapel Parallel Programming Language) [2018] — at September 18, 2018 04:00 UTC

    We worked on our final blogpost for rgsoc. IIts been such a wonderful journey and if we start penning down all what we have experienced, we will definitely fall short of words.
    Nevertheless, we have put in our experiences as a team as well as individual experiences.
    Apart from that implemented a sample distributed sort, to verify whether the approach is correct.

  • Day #61

    Team Brazilian housewives coding (Public Lab) [2018] — at September 18, 2018 03:40 UTC

    This week we are finishing some small tasks for the /search page, like adding filters to the /search/notes page and using partials to show the results by type (notes, profiles, tags, etc.). We are waiting for our previous PR to be reviewed/merged to update our current work on top of that. See you tomorrow!

    Team 101 Days of Summer (Servo) [2018] — at September 16, 2018 11:22 UTC

    Writing our wrap up RGSoC blog post made us realise that this summer has been so awesome. With just two weeks left for the program, we feel so sad 😭. We wish this could continue forever. From being noobies in Rust (who does't even know how to remove a Dom wrapping) to actually getting our code landed in Servo, we feel so confident. Thank you RGSoC team <3
