  • Day 11

    Team Code Bears (diaspora*) — at July 17, 2017 17:47 UTC

    Today we did our first pull request. YAY!! After fixing the code and the according tests, it took us more time than we thought to do the actual pull request because of some issues with git while preparing for the pull request. Also phrasing what we did and why we opted for one solution rather than another took quite some time. Anyway towards the end of the day we did the pull request and now we are waiting for replies. Excited and nervous...

  • #Day 11: Exploring the gems!!

    Team Bundledore (AFDC League Management System) — at July 17, 2017 17:42 UTC

    What we did today:

    1) We found that our choice of using gibbon gem wasn't giving us the correct output. So we shifted to the "MailChimp API "gem.
    2)Working on issue #128 which is expected to be fixed by the week.
    3)Scheduled the weekly call with our supervisor for Thursday.

  • Day #13 - Meetups and Modules

    Team 276linesofCode (Tessel) — at July 17, 2017 17:41 UTC


    Yesterday was a big day for both of us. We presented a talk on Introduction to Computer Vision being members of WWC-Delhi. It was a great experience, since, we got to delve deeper into Open CV, explain the concepts involved to the attendees, cleared their doubts. The audience was very responsive and we even got a positive feedback in the end. SO, through this we were able to spread our knowledge about Computer Vision to a few enthusiasts beginning their journey in this.
    We introduced RGSoC in the beginning of our presentation, making the audience aware about what it is and how it really works.

    Today, we again got back to working on our Tessel Modules. We explored GPS Module and Servo Module.

    We even made changes in some PRs that we had sent the previous week as suggested by the Tessel committee.

    Tomorrow, we would begin our day by having a weekly call with our Project Mentor, Kelsey giving her updates and taking in suggestions.

    Till then, Adios.

  • Week 3: Monday

    Team Pivotal London (Babel) — at July 17, 2017 15:55 UTC

    8:45 Arrive at Pivotal for breakfast
    Review resources regarding plugins. Read the Babel plugin handbook again :-) Examined other babel plugins, in consideration of writing our own.
    The motivation for doing the above plugin revision work is that Kara tried to implement a simple plugin over the weekend, including making necessary changes to Babel's parser Babylon. Feedback from the community was kind: parser changes and tests were good, necessary syntax changes in Babel were good, but the transform was not written (ha!). So, back to an overview of what writing a plugin entails. Progress was made on writing the transform, but would love to run it over a small piece of code. Also, it is possible that the generator needs a change as well. Language changes necessitate quite a lot of small tweaks to almost all the major components of Babel! Decent learning exercise and as a point of pride I would like to complete it (plus it is good for my understanding of how the parts of Babel work together in practice); however, Winna had the very good point that this is an example of scope creep.
    1:30 - 3:00 Observed BBR Pre-IPM and IPM
    5:00 Hour with Winna, talking about necessity to guard the project's scope and write a good backlog of well written stories. We wrote one story together (the Walking Skeleton story). Discussed elements of a well written user story.

    **Also Emma and Kara played ping pong

  • Week 3 (Jul 17 - Jul 21) Status Update #1

    Team 200 OK (coala) — at July 17, 2017 03:35 UTC

    On Saturday, we had our weekly supervisor call with Mayar and discussed our progress. So far, we have been meeting the goals we are setting for each week and she was very pleased with our progress. We also met with our coaches who helped us resolve the roadblocks we were facing.

    In addition, we finalized some of the implementation details of JSLintBear. The problem we were facing was that the author has essentially implemented it as a function and not a redistributable package via npm so we had a lot of questions about writing a linter around it. Hopefully, we will be able to send a PR for it this week.

  • Day #10

    Team Codeaholics (Nextcloud) — at July 16, 2017 21:08 UTC

    What we have done:

    • Still working to fix the issue #253, but we haven't fixed it yet
    • Started working on Contacts Documentation
    • Tried to fix issue #130

  • Day 9 and 10!

    Team prodyoGEEKY (OpenLMIS: vaccine and medicine logistics for low- and middle-income countries) — at July 16, 2017 19:35 UTC

    We began with the local install of OpenLMIS and successfully performed the following:
    1. Installation of Docker Engine and Docker Compose
    2. Pulled the environment file template and edited it to provide local IP address.
    3. Pulled all the services to bring the Reference Distribution up.
    After this we were able to see the login page!

    Could not get past the login page and struggled with Bad Gateway error for hours! :| After trying various possible solutions suggested by the team on Slack, when nothing worked, it was decided that working on a Virtual Machine is probably causing the problem. We'll now dual boot our systems with a native Ubuntu which will hopefully solve the problem. Fingers crossed!

    Also, our updates were earlier by mistake going under the name of Padawans - the team we applied last year as. The issue has finally been resolved! :)

  • Updates!

    Team prodyoGEEKY (OpenLMIS: vaccine and medicine logistics for low- and middle-income countries) — at July 16, 2017 19:31 UTC

    Second week of RGSoC is already here and the journey so far has been nothing but exciting! The best moment being the group hangout joined by all mentors, coaches and our supervisor Linda!
    To sum up our progress so far -

    First Kick Off Meet (4th July)
    This marked the beginning of our RGSoC’17 journey. We had a hangout session with our mentors and guides from OpenLMIS team, our coaches and team supervisor Linda.
    After an interesting round of introductions, we discussed our project proposal in detail and the features we’ll start working on. As a starter, we’ll begin integrating Cordova into Dev-UI build process.

    Laying down the communication channels and weekly meetup timings (5th July)
    Slack will be our official medium of communication!

    Local install of OpenLMIS (6th July)
    To introduce ourselves with OpenLMIS’s code base, went through installation instructions, read about grunt and the tickets assigned to us on Jira.

    Now that we are all set up, we are certain our next update will talk about us finally getting our hands dirty with our first task. Stay tuned! :D

  • Day 11

    Team NK42 (Foodsaving and Foodsharing) — at July 16, 2017 17:37 UTC

    Foodsaving Hackathon day II

    We figured out how to add database field "user_feedback" and how to show it in Swagger. That might sound quite easy but we actually spent quite some time with errors, docker containers running in the background, searching for the right places in the code etc. We have learnt how we can join, leave, remove a pickup in Swagger and play with this while checking history data as result. That brings us much closer to solving our first issue.

    Tilmann explained how Foodsaving works with tests. He showed Marie how to write a simple test for PICKUP_DONE and how to fix all test failures and errors. Tilmann recommended to create a simple Django test in our test web app with Snippets with Django and Django Rest Framework documentation. Afterwards, Marie explained it to Ines. Nick explained how he started to implement messaging functions in the tool and we did some code reading together.

  • Day 11, Week 2

    Team Code_Hoppers (OpenFarm) — at July 15, 2017 19:30 UTC

    We hoped to have finished the search bar today but we are still working on it. We hope to work on it over the weekend so that we can keep up with our work plan and not carry it to the new week.

    Week 2 has been both challenging and exciting, we hope to make more PR next week.

    That's all for today!

  • Day #9

    Team Codeaholics (Nextcloud) — at July 15, 2017 19:03 UTC

    What we have done:

    • This weekend we are replacing the dates the we couldn't work during this week (Monday and Tuesday)
    • Drinking coffee together and discussing how was EuroPython'17
    • Started working on the article that we need to publish for our team
    • Did some tests to fix the issue #253

  • Day 10

    Team NK42 (Foodsaving and Foodsharing) — at July 15, 2017 18:05 UTC

    Foodsaving Hackathon day I

    We started the day with a Django REST Framework tutorial and compared the files with the ones in the Foodsaving Repo. We learned what serializers do (among other things they translate python objects to JSON objects and back) and how these project architectures can look like.

    Together with Nick we analysed the apps in the Foodsharing repo and figured out which one are most interesting for us at the moment. Unfortunately Ines messed up her Docker container and Marie her local branch – so it was necessary to spend time with bug fixing and setup stuff again.

  • Day 9

    Team NK42 (Foodsaving and Foodsharing) — at July 15, 2017 09:23 UTC

    This day was filled with meetings and white board sessions:

    • Meeting with Daniel and Dave – steps forward and situation regarding SoundCloud
    • White board session with Daniel about Signals in connection with events in Django
    • Foodsharing and Foodsaving Hackathon / Greeting session
    • Foodsaving Hackathon / white board session (models structure, upcoming tasks for next day)

    Furthermore we were experimenting with Swagger and read parts of the Django REST Framework documentation. We also learned some new details about GitHub while committing two changes in our blog post in the Rails Girls Repository.

  • Day 10! Friday!

    Team Gemini (Susi AI Server) — at July 15, 2017 03:03 UTC

    We looked at issues that need to be solved,started on one but realised that someone was doing it already. Then we got to know that - a contributor creates it and immediately solves it or is grabbed by someone else quickly!
    So plan find our own issues and solve has started!
    Have started to try out making some susi skills too.

    Well, phew!
    Another day has gone by, until next time!

  • Day 10 - It's Friday yay

    Team RailsGyn (RGSoC: The Teams App) — at July 15, 2017 01:25 UTC

    Today was a very difficult day, we spent the morning integrating the issue that would complement the issue of which we are working. We also created the tests for all our changes and some other tests to increase the coverage of the scenarios. We are now looking forward to reviewing our amendments and approving our PR. We hope that Monday everything is already reviewed so we can move on to the next issue.

    Team 276linesofCode (Tessel) — at July 14, 2017 18:22 UTC


    So today was a remote working day for both of us. We changed a few commits for the previous PRs that we had made.
    We also worked on a few of the PRs that were labeled as "Do Not Merge" by us last week and aim to complete them by Sunday.

    We had our second supervisor call with Vaishali today! We talked about our progress so far and it has been a smooth ride till now!

    2 Weeks of RGSoC have been a crazy ride and we wish to do wayyy more the coming weeks in order to make it successful!
