    RGAU2016 - TEAM VEGEMITE ( [2016] — at September 26, 2016 09:41 UTC

    I worked from home both the days.
    On Friday I worked the issue and provided the solution. But later I found out duplicate PR existed. So had to close it.
    But I learnt few front end techniques on CSS side. Also went through submitted PR for the same issue and saw how the solution was different from mine and learnt some refactoring tecniques on HTML side.
    On Monday I worked on the final blog. I did introspection of what I have learnt and collected enough wordings for the blog.
    I would continue on blog tomorrow. Also might browse through issues and involve in researching.

  • Day 59: D-4

    Team JaM (Servo) [2016] — at September 26, 2016 07:00 UTC

    Things we did: Body Spent the morning (!!) rebasing Body on top of master (did it the hard way using rebase the first time, until Jeena suggested I just reset and cherry-pick my commits on top…the latter way had only a few merge conflicts as opposed to a LOT). And a little rewriting to … Read more.

  • Day 58: Sea of Commits

    Team JaM (Servo) [2016] — at September 25, 2016 18:34 UTC

    Things we did:

    • Body
      • Finished refactoring (for the most part) and pushed to a temporary branch for the Body API while Jeena adds her changes. I'll probably implement the BodyTrait for dom::request while she does that.
    • Package Data Algorithm
      • Added/Refactored the package data algorithm to the temporary branch! And it compiles!

    Things we learned:

    • You can directly access struct fields only if you're in the same file as the struct that you're trying to access. This at first seemed really weird and arbitrary to me, but apparently this turns out to be less of a headache (and fairly reasonable) compared to the way internal field access would be handles in C++ (according to our coach Nick). This is why it sometimes easier to implement a trait for a struct in the same file that the struct is defined (as opposed to, say, the file that the trait is defined).


    • Body (Malisa)
      • implement the BodyTrait for dom::request. Also, rebase on top of the current master (now that promises and fetch are merged in ^^)
    • Test Curation
      • Go through the new tests, and categorize them.
    • Package Data Algorithm
      • Figure out how to write FormData() when MIMEType is "multipart/form-data"
      • Clean up the code

  • September 23: writeFile node Js

    Team Rookies (Hoodie) [2016] — at September 25, 2016 09:17 UTC

    Today we continued working on the node Js part of this project today as well. We have been using child_process class to create a package.json file for the app to save dependencies and other important data before installing any thing. But the method we were using was not of much help so we decided to … Read more.

  • September 22: Child_process (Node JS)

    Team Rookies (Hoodie) [2016] — at September 25, 2016 09:08 UTC

    This week we are trying to download all the dependencies needed with just a click of a button. The nodeJs library that runs terminal commands is called the child_process class. We used the exec method to make the commands run on the terminal. The Structure of this class looks like this, … Read more.

  • Day 59: UNPOC

    Team kindr3d (Discourse – Visual Forum Analytics) [2016] — at September 24, 2016 18:59 UTC

    Friday had it ups and downs.


    • fixed the tests for components and templates including d3
    • chart is there, however polylines are tricky so we'll leave them out until the change function is functional


    • render category through handlebars and figure out how handlebars handle attributes
    • render top topics roughly

  • Pycon Day 1 :D

    Team l1ghtsab3r (VOC) [2016] — at September 24, 2016 18:19 UTC

    What we did today

    • We attended PyCon India today and it was awesome. We'll be putting up some pictures tomorrow.

    • We met our coach Anuvrat, who is also the organizer for PyCon India. Two more coaches Naman and Sambhav were also there!

    • Apart from that we learnt a lot about Python ASTs and this will be really helpful and relevant with what we are currently doing.

    What we plan to do tomorrow:

    • Attend Day 2 of PyCon India
    • Relax on Sunday :D

  • Day 59

    Team XYZ (Keystone) [2016] — at September 24, 2016 09:47 UTC

    In the morning we had a call with our supervisor Sofy, and after that dived deep into visualisation task. We already have diagrams for main elements (Lists and Fields) designed and built, and today we were working on expanding it with another component: field options in modal window. We imported modal component from elemental-ui but got a bit lost while importing/exporting/declaring components in React. Luckily our coach Josef was available so he showed us the correct way to do so. Now we have a fully working diagram, and now we want to render field's options and their values there.

  • Day 58 - Google Campus

    See ya later,
    Geisa <3

  • Sept 23rd - Friday: Final Friday Retrospective

    Team Hackbrighters (Lektor CMS) [2016] — at September 23, 2016 23:45 UTC

    We spent most of the day troubleshooting our blog post on Github universe. Some of the pictures we resized in the Atom Editor came out pixelated. We went back the original picture for the ones that didn't quite come out right and re-scaled them in a dedicated image editor. We used GIMP because it's as powerful as Adobe Creative Suite (and because neither of us has a licensed copy). We also used a PNG file format as we figured the problems with images might be a limitation the JPEG compression format reacting weirdly with the backlighting that was common to the problematic pictures. We also needed to do attributions and captions for all the photos. So we had to rack our brain for the names of strangers and friends who helped us take pictures while we posed for them.

    We also combed for maybe a last issue that we could fix or feature we could implement for Lektor. We want to make at least one more substantial contribution to the project. We mulled over writing a contributor's guide for lektor's community that would might help ramp up a beginner to the project more easily, maybe doing a usability study with a non-technical user of Lektor, or maybe trying once again to write a test.

    We had our weekly check in with Andrea to talk as preparation for our final call-in with mentors and coaches tomorrow. We can't believe that this experience is winding down, and we're processing a lot of feelings about it. We agreed that we've come a long way, and we're pretty satisfied in the amount that we learned in such a short time. We're very thankful that we could have this journey!

Learning new things is awesome <3

    to do :
    - creating a generator
    -using bootstrap to help us with the dashboard

  • Packaging for testing

    Team Reactives (Poetic Computation) [2016] — at September 23, 2016 14:32 UTC

    Shifting priority to Windows testing because most users use Windows, still facing problems with the Linux package for an unknown reason. Windows requires Wine in addition to electron packager for proper code signing. Shifting to the new bootstrapped UI which works great with just one issue: integrating speech synthesiser with the file browser tab.
