  • Week 11 day 1

    Team Clojurians (re-frame) — at September 11, 2017 20:23 UTC

    We're both kind of dying today because job interviews are overwhelming and crazy and Chris can't wait until their future is no longer a hazy cloud of coding challenges and phone calls \o/

    saskia: I did the coding challenge for my job interview and tried to figure out how to write shell scripts with Clojure (more or less successul :D), I came a bit closer to finishing the category thing, it is working now without the filters, but not in combination with them, still trying to figure out why :/ and in between I did some brainstorming for the talk (presentation of our summer of code project). I've put up a PR for the category thing, it's not working yet but I need some feedback because I'm kinda stuck

    chris: I tried to get the js interop working with the custom formatters, but I ended up getting into a bunch of crazy merge conflicts because my branch from last week was so far behind. I worked a bit on my re-frame sample project and got stuck with coeffects, hmm... and then I had an interview call, and then I responded to 109384023948 emails

  • Day #50

    Team Codeaholics (Nextcloud) — at September 11, 2017 20:17 UTC

    What we did today

    • Discussed and submitted our Conference preferences.
    • Working on new sorting options. Two of them are 'Date Created' and 'Last Modified' .
    • Ate croissants :D

  • Day 57

    Team NK42 (Foodsaving and Foodsharing) — at September 11, 2017 19:17 UTC

    Ines worked on the documentation today. First she improved the formatting and parts of the content in the chapters 01 Setup (changed chapter about frontend), 02 Project Architecture (new graphic, changed the description of the apps) and 03 Server and Swagger (minor changes for clarification). Afterwards, she started a new chapter about stores. Here we want to explain how the apps work and how models, serializers etc. work together.

    Marie worked on her algorithmic thinking as she did also whole weekend. She practiced the fundamentals in Code Wars and then tried to solve the first task in Codility training center (achieved 76 %). Then she read a few chapters about different types of algorithms - arrays, iterations, time and space comlexity and counting elements. She hopes she will improve her algorithmic thinking in Python so much that she will be able to solve any puzzle (hopefully!) at technical interview.

    Team 276linesofCode (Tessel) — at September 11, 2017 18:19 UTC


    So, today we sat together and decided to look into the changes requested on two of our Pull Requests - Issue #93 and Issue #179. We made the changes as were asked by the reviewers from the Tessel Steering Committee.

    For tomorrow we have decided to start over once again with the new ESP32 module our mentor had sent us few days ago and try to upload a HelloWorld code to it as the first step.

    Till then, Adios.

  • Day 51 Pivotal London (and the previous week)

    Team Pivotal London (Babel) — at September 11, 2017 15:10 UTC

    Last week was hectic for us! Emma handed in her dissertation, did her presentation, had her interview AND had her completion ceremony (and had her review today). It was all very stressful and overwhelming, but she's come out the other side keen to succeed and with full grasp of what it's actually like pitching and presenting a business and facing hard questions from people!! It was so amazing though - I can't believe a year is already over! It's shocking to say the least.

    Kara had a superb time at both the Google Developer Days Conference AND Container Camp. She learnt so much about the new Google APIs and the mobile web at GDDEurope. Then, at Container Camp, she was fortunate to hear many talks on containers and orchestration and be introduced to the many different technologies and platforms that are being created. Two Pivots gave a talk on Pivotal Cloud Foundry and some of the technical choices they have made in the recent past and that was a fascinating introduction to Pivotal Cloud Foundry and how it has evolved.

    Day 50 of our time here was predominantly getting back in to the swing of things - Emma came in for the afternoon following her review for her dissertation, and then we both had a meeting with Ines and spoke to her about our weeks and how she was and how we really are so lucky to be on this program. Ines is the absolute BEST 💕 😍 🦄 ❤️. We're going to spend the rest of the day working on our presentation, and talking about continuous integration with our supervisors tonight :)

    It's been a busy week, but now we're both excited to get back in to Babel - we're hoping to make really strides this week :) :) :) :)

    Team Serv0101 (Servo) — at September 11, 2017 05:17 UTC

    First two days+weekends, we learn few complex concepts of rust programming language.It's been two months, now we are confident enough about our understanding of codebase of Servo. Today we are planning to update our PR's and if PR got approved then we will pickup the next task and start working.
    We also have to write blog. We are collecting our data about whatever we did during last 2 months.
    Also this Friday we are going to attend JSFoo conference. Thanks to RGSoC for arranging tickets. Well we are pretty much excited.
