  • Day 25: Relaxed #CC0000 Clementine Popcorn

    Team Popcorn (Nextcloud) — at August 3, 2018 16:13 UTC

    Today's Progress:

    • Arati worked on the add contact input UI, in particular the border when hovered over and went through her code with our coach Victor
    • Jessica worked on the delete Sharee and edit Sharee's writeable permissions as well as the UI for possible sharees


    A solid day of heads down coding! It was a nice way to finish the week :) We both feel we have learnt a lot of valuable additions this week with our knowledge share session and learning about BEVM. Roll on Monday :)

  • DAY23 : Finding solutions!

    Team Sunshine (Babel) — at August 3, 2018 14:30 UTC

    Sujin is working on :
    Sujin tried two things; but I couldn’t solve based on checking current url.
    1. Can’t access window.location.pathname object in pages/en/repl
    2. Can’t access ReactDOM.findDOMNode and apply style inside componentDidMount() method in pages/en/repl


    However I couldn't understand why it happen actually and I think after complied docusaurus page component, then child components go in to.
    And… finally, She got a clue. She created a new file, /static/css/hide-footer.css and this path is added in styles array and it works.
    const styles = ["", "/static/css/hide-footer.css"];

    Gyujin is
    Continuing refactoring Repl Options with Sandpack and Learning about many options Babel has.

  • Day # 27

    Team Brazilian housewives coding (Public Lab) — at August 3, 2018 04:47 UTC

    This week we started adding the author and tagged notes rss feeds to Swagger interface. But we realized something: we have a lot of duplicated code at different parts of the project!

    We also spent some time tonight trying to make the textSearch_profiles work with a full-text search, but it's being hard to make it work having different database type for development and production!

    We sent a message to our team today about all of this, we need to discuss those issues with our mentor and coaches. Stay tuned for more updates!

  • Day 26

    Team 101 Days of Summer (Servo) — at August 3, 2018 04:35 UTC

    Yesterday we made all the suggested changes. A x-mixed-replace type check took a lot of time as it was a bit confusing. Tests now produced different results than what they used to earlier, an accomplishment :P Yay (Though 2 new tests have started failing rather than passing)
    We already have around 57 comments on our PR.
    We are waiting for a review, probably we'd be getting more suggestions yet again. We plan to complete the algorithm by today.

  • Day 24 - A good day of coding!

    Team GirlsCode MK (Bahmni) — at August 2, 2018 22:37 UTC


    We solved an issue with birthdate and calculating days, months and years using moment.js. We had done most of the code but it was not consistently working after the second addition or subtraction of a unit of time. We therefore got some guidance from our coach online using slack, stack overflow and with combined effort, determination we resolved the problem. It turned out we needed to use spread syntax.

    This has been a good day for programming after struggling with this problem for a little while. It has been good to struggle as it will make us remember it. We got some moral support from our coach as we were feeling down that it had taken so long to solve. He advised us that it was just experience and you start to get an idea of what needs changing with more experience but he said we had problem solved it very logically.

    We met at Bletchley park for a workshop for girls code MK and again explained RGSoC and our project Bahmni. We also shared jobs, conferences that had been posted. We also shared tips that our coaches and mentors are showing us to encourage future applicants.


    We have done the code to solve the story problem, now we need to refactor to as one of our coach's said to stamp it down to make it clear and efficient.

    We now feel we are ready to meet with our mentor to get the second part of the story finished.

    TO DO

    Meet with our mentor tomorrow discuss testing and we have already seen on Jira part of the next story.

    Add the SVG image for the checkbox

    Write more tests.

    Change the UI to the design for laptop size. Guidance and clarification needed on what they want.

    🎉🎉🎉But overall celebrate when you have achieved a break through that has been niggling for a while! 🎉🎉🎉

  • Day 23

    Team DelSquared — at August 2, 2018 20:49 UTC

    Hi All!

    We put another PR today. Also, since we have been working on Fritzing over the past few days, we started working on the related PRs. Hoping to wrap them up soon!

    Till we meet again,

  • Day Twenty-Three (2nd August 2018)

    Team Sectumsempra (Chapel Parallel Programming Language) — at August 2, 2018 19:30 UTC

    Fnally today I was able to resolve the issue I was facing earlier on msb sorting for larger arrays,. It was a very silly mistake :P. I had not added an extra bucket for sorting due to which the recursive calls were not complete. I am so glad that its finally working for larger arrays as well. Meanwhile Rupal is working on the lsb sorting and testing and so far its going fine.
    More testing to be done for this week .

    Hoping to get finished with this soon,
    Team Sectumsempra

  • Day Twenty-Two(August 1st 2018)

    Team Sectumsempra (Chapel Parallel Programming Language) — at August 2, 2018 19:22 UTC

    We continued working on our respective tasks. I (Avneet) was stuck for a while with the code, it wasn't working for larger arrays and I continued to try and test corner cases. Rupal worked on the testing the lsb version. Once we are done with the basics, our main goal is to refine the code to also be able to sort strings, negative numbers and also include key based sorting. That would definitely be a little difficult for us but where's the fun without a challenge :P.

    Looking forward to learn more,
    Team Sectumsempra

  • Day Twenty One (July 31st 2018)

    Team Sectumsempra (Chapel Parallel Programming Language) — at August 2, 2018 19:18 UTC

    We forgot to update our logs and hence doing it now. We had our weekly meeting on Tuesday with our mentors and coaches, in which we discussed about the tasks for the coming week and how to proceed further. Also we cleared some doubts regarding our work. And we also discussed about splitting our tasks among both of us for the week so that we can work at our own pace for some time and also improve our efficiency. So , for this week Rupal would be testing the lsb version, while I (Avneet) would be working on the MSB version. Lets see how this works out.

    Hoping for the best,
    Team Sectumsempra

  • Day 23

    Team Barcelona Duo (Exercism) — at August 2, 2018 18:10 UTC

    We wanted to thank our coach Maikha and our hosting company Thoughtworks for loaning a mac laptop to Lori. 💻The codebase was extremely difficult to install on her windows computer and after several frustrating attempts, we decided to switch to a mac. Since the laptop didn't have anything installed, we spent the morning pairing and getting Lori's environment set up. The change to a mac took some time to get used to, but pairing on the set up was very helpful. In the afternoon our coach David helped Lori install the codebase. It was a huge relief to finally have the codebase on both of our machines.

    We finished off the afternoon working on issue #3966 and ran into some issues with Git. We had a session with our coach David and Emily to resolve the issues and decided to continue tomorrow. Tomorrow will be a fresh new start, and we are looking forward to understanding more of the Git process.

  • Day 24

    Team $we init (Probot: build your own GitHub app(s)) — at August 2, 2018 17:25 UTC

    Today we discussed with our coaches the detailed plans and issues we are stuck at. We also chalked out a timeline to meet all our deadlines for bot 1. The week being extremely difficult for us as mentioned earlier, we have decided to meet all our deadlines by working at weekends.

    Team 101 Days of Summer (Servo) — at August 2, 2018 04:50 UTC

    We made all the suggested changes in the PR yesterday. We have received some more suggestions, will look into those and complete the algorithm today. We will also run some already written tests to check what impact the algorithm has created on those, how many new test cases are passing and how many older test cases are failing.

  • Day 22:First pull Request From our new members

    Team Akaringular (EBWiki) — at August 1, 2018 20:33 UTC

    • My partner Rachael lost someone close to her and so this week I have pretty much been working a lone. All the same we are trying to balance things.
    • Today we had two hangouts with Rails Girls Nairobi members, with one we dint do much as we had so many errors with the installations that we decided to have a one on meeting next week on Wed.
    • With the second hangout we were actually able to create the first pull request on the beginner friendly issues.
    • We finished updating most of the libraries that were remaining.

  • Day 23

    Team Barcelona Duo (Exercism) — at August 1, 2018 20:21 UTC

    Our sprint begins

    We started the day off with a breakfast meeting with our coach Emily. After spending all of last night trying to set up the codebase on her machine, Lori was ready to give up. Thanks to Emily’s encouragement, we decided to give it one more try tomorrow. Hopefully with David’s help we will manage to get the codebase on Lori's machine working.

    We then set up our working environment so that we could properly pair program. Our first experience with pair programming was very positive. Pairing with somebody is a great way to share knowledge and work through issues. We learned so much from each other.

    At some point, we were very stuck and could not merge the changes that we made. We tried several things, and after several attempts we decided to ask for help. We then had an awesome session on GIT with our coach Ignacio and were able to rebase our commits and clean up our directory.

    We learned the following new commands.

    We wish you could have seen the amazement in our eyes when Ignacio mentioned git cherry-pick

    In the afternoon we had a wonderful session with our coach David. We reviewed the git commands we learned in the morning in order to make sure we understood the process. David has also been teaching us how to write clear commit messages so that our issues can later be referenced by others. Writing proper commit messages might seem like a small detail, but when many people are working on a codebase, things need to be properly documented.

    We ended the day with an amazing Rails lesson from our coach Klaus. He has such a gentle way of asking questions to guide the learning process. By going over different elements in the codebase we learned how Rails apps are constructed. One of our favorite concepts that we learned was abstraction. We were very glad that Klaus taught us this concept because it helped clarify for example, how controllers, models and the database interact with one another.

    We knew that we were going to learn a lot this summer, but it is turning out to be one of the best summers of our lives. We are so lucky to be surrounded and supported by such an amazing group of people. Thank you so much to all of you! 💗

  • Day 22

    Team DelSquared — at August 1, 2018 19:01 UTC

    Hi All!

    We discussed ideas for our mini-hackathon today. We went through different modules and their applications and thought about the possible projects we could work on. We had a call with our mentor, Kelsey and discussed the same. We also went over last week’s work and the PRs we’re supposed to work on, during the next week.

    Till we meet again,

  • Day 23 - Month 1 is done!

    • solved a layout issue (answer: more flexbox!)
    • added media queries so that our app displays nicely no matter the screen size (...flexbox...)
    • started work on momentjs two-way input handling of the date (some progress, some errors)
    • we are now git branch veterans and have done 166 commits to date!


    • following the meeting with Ivo, we need to do some refactoring of our code, including taking some stuff out of state, changing (trimming) what we collect and what is sent with the post request, writing functions and unit testing them

    To Do

    • meet coach Ivo on Friday and discuss testing
    • add the SVG image for the checkbox
    • write more tests!
