    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 48

    RGAU2016 - TEAM VEGEMITE ( [2016] — at September 7, 2016 04:05 UTC

    Coaches offsite - no standup, but we checked in with each other on what we're working on today.
    Kylie is working on:
    - Pull request Simplify design and copy of CLI Installation guide
    * I'm going through the instructions/errors with a fine tooth comb by printing out each page, and going over it line by line to ensure that the instructions are as consistent and correct as possible. I've been doing fixes such as renaming headings, removing help instructions, and removing unnecessary words to make the instructions as clear and concise as possible.
    * Researching margins/containers/widths in CSS - I'm not sure that I'm done with what I have, and need to check that.
    - doesn't have a contact us page/link for the website, which seems strange. Created new issue re: contact us and had my first try at writing an issue for a newbie based on the starter guide, but it just seemed too hard, with so many steps, so abandoned.
    - Checked with Katrina re: removing "Want to add more help topics?" info as it seems redundant.
    - Tried out a heavier weight of font for all headings - it actually looks pretty good!

    Ramya is working on:
    1. PR #133 got merged today
    2. Started working on issue This includes
    Analysing how config.json is being read
    why config.json is being used

    RGAU2016 - TEAM VEGEMITE ( [2016] — at September 6, 2016 00:26 UTC

    We both had standup with our coach Tim, and then:
    Kylie worked on:
    1. issue 3093 - Separate line numbers from code on submission page by doing research, providing comment and a mockup of how the issue could be fixed.
    2. Pull request "Simplify design and copy of CLI Installation guide #3089" which includes:
    * providing feedback on Katrina's questions
    *working on the css to change the width of the navigation, and provide a breakup of the wall of text through the use of elements such as numbering, padding, and experimenting with weights.
    *spent time with coach Kevin to go over the css, with the recommendation of MDN CSS, in particular the selector specificity information, to get a better idea of how to use the cascade of cascading style sheets, and avoid separate styles "fighting" for dominance, so I have control over which styles do what, and when.
    *issues within the request such a renaming troubleshooting and fixing the routes and links to make the changes work, renaming headings, making instructions clearer to newbies.
    * Windows instructions - asked for help on gitter, and helped someone else with navigating to Exercism's archiving problems section whilst there.
    * I also learnt how to add code into markdown bullets by indenting a minimum of 8 spaces. Tricky!
