  • Day 62 : What a summer !

    Team Ruby's secret (Exception Notification) [2016] — at September 30, 2016 19:59 UTC

    We can't believe that the three months had passed so quickly , we still remember the small details of our very first day as if it were only yesterday .There will be something missing next weeks , our daily logs, our weekly calls with Linda <3 ..... but we're happy , I guess we made our first step in building our future .It was the strangest but definitely the best summer in my whole life .We only have one wish for RGSoC 2017 , we really hope to see more women getting into tech and more teams from Egypt applying to RGSoC to have an amazing summer as we did .

  • Day 61 :wrapping it up

  • Day 60 : busy bees

    Team Ruby's secret (Exception Notification) [2016] — at September 28, 2016 21:27 UTC

    today we didn't do that much ...I had finished my lectures late at college.
    -Still working on the generator.
    -We had our weekly call with our lovely supervisor Linda <3
    -We had the wrap-up call with Linda and our mentor and remote coach.
    We are really sad that the summer of code has come to an end and we haven't finished our project yet but we decided to try to continue working on it in our spare time.

  • Day 59 : Generators

    Team Ruby's secret (Exception Notification) [2016] — at September 27, 2016 23:11 UTC

    turning the gem into an engine turned out to be not such a great idea cause this means that the gem won't support Sintara anymore , so as an alternative solution we're creating generators but still the generators are not working in the dummy app .

    Adding more to the script of the talk of our conference and practicing the script and calculating our timing

  • Day 57 : Back to college

    Team Ruby's secret (Exception Notification) [2016] — at September 23, 2016 21:58 UTC

    Today is the last day of our summer vacation ,tomorrow we're starting college .One thing that we learned from RGSoC is that we should study for the sake of learning not for only getting high grades , of course we want to get high grades but after that summer that won't be our main goal anymore . Learning new things is awesome <3
    for today :
    1)we worked on database
    2)we watched some tutorials talking about creating dashboards but we still need to dig a little bit into bootstrap to implement the features that our mentor wants.
    3)we worked on the script of the conference's talk .
    to do :
    - creating a generator
    -using bootstrap to help us with the dashboard

  • Day 55 : Stuck

    Team Ruby's secret (Exception Notification) [2016] — at September 21, 2016 21:10 UTC

    Now we are stuck . There is something which we can't figure out regarding the dashboard .We now can catch exceptions and store them , the problem is that the gem supports Sintara and Rails, and the method we used supports Rails only . We are trying to ask on the helpdesk , trying to prepare calls with our coaches and our mentor . Hope we can figure that out soon :D .
    During the past days we've been working on Nada's laptop only because the terminal on mine was giving errors for almost every command I type , it was driving me crazy but today , thanks God , I managed to fix it .

  • Day 52 : A goal to be reached :D

    Team Ruby's secret (Exception Notification) [2016] — at September 18, 2016 22:20 UTC

    We decided to work today to make it up for the long vacation of the feast .
    1) We read a blog about getting started with a rails gem-engine.
    2)We added a model to the gem and tried to run it but it gave an error which we couldn't understand but still searching.
    3)We did some modifications to the gem .
    Basically what we are trying to do now is searching for a way to save the exceptions , a way that would work without giving errors .

  • Day 51 : A very long holiday

    Team Ruby's secret (Exception Notification) [2016] — at September 16, 2016 19:40 UTC

    We are finally back , full of energy , after enjoying our feast .We are still working on the engine , having some scattered ideas here and there . Today we did the following :
    1) read a blog about rails logging and error handling.
    2)turned the gem into an engine, building a controller and a model.
    3)build a new notifier that saves the exceptions but it still needs some modifications.
    4) mounted the gem "exception-notification " in the dummy file of the engine.
    5)yesterday , we happily had a call with team LoadToCode , we mainly talked about the outlines of our coming talk at RubyConfPt .

  • Day 50 : Learning

    Team Ruby's secret (Exception Notification) [2016] — at September 10, 2016 05:39 UTC

    we kept working on the engine , we were able to catch the exceptions and add them to a database just like the project is supposed to be , the problem is that the menthod we used in different than the method used in the gem , so still we're trying to figure this out

  • Day 49 : steady state

    Team Ruby's secret (Exception Notification) [2016] — at September 8, 2016 22:57 UTC

    Now we are in a steady state , we didn't make any noticeable achievement today , just working on the engine . We also read about Mongoid and checked out the codeschool course about it . The best part about what we are working on now is that we are trying to build something from scratch , it makes us happy as if we're building our homes or renovating our rooms .

  • Day 48 : organized steps

    Team Ruby's secret (Exception Notification) [2016] — at September 7, 2016 21:37 UTC

    -After watching different tutorials about mountable engines and how to create them in the past days , today we wanted to sum up all the info we gathered , so we read the rails guide for engines and it really made us more concentrated and focused about what we are trying to learn .
    -We divided our work on the dashboard to two levels :
    The first level : working on how to catch the exceptions and store them in a database.
    The second level : working on Rails admin panels .
    -We started working on the first level today , building our engine , hoping we could finish great part of this level before our feast.

    Team Ruby's secret (Exception Notification) [2016] — at September 6, 2016 22:53 UTC

    Today our PR was finally merged after long days of hard work . We're focusing on creating the Dashboard for our gem "The exception_notification" , we started breaking the project into small chunks and talked with our mentor to make sure we're on the same page. Definitely, a lot to learn but the good thing is that this time, we have a clear vision.
    Today we learned about :
    Engines and mountable Engines
    Rails admin panels

  • Day 46 : setting blocks

    Team Ruby's secret (Exception Notification) [2016] — at September 5, 2016 22:23 UTC

    Today and the following days we are going to focus on learning new concepts that would help us build a Dashboard -our main challenge- so today we started by watching a Railscasts talking about mountable engines , we tried to explore Airbrake and ActiveAdmin because they are a bit similar to what we want to do and we also read about generators and Bootstrap on Rails .

  • Day 43 : baby steps

    Team Ruby's secret (Exception Notification) [2016] — at September 1, 2016 01:15 UTC

    Today we discovered a new thing that helped us tons , we were finally able to preview the mail from our dummy app , using the 'dummy' took us some time to get used to it ,but eventually we got where we want to. Also we were able to preview the mail in the testing environment. We discovered the ":file" method in sending a mail and it helped us tons.

    Plans for tomorrow :
    1) using :stmp in development env to preview the .html mail
    2)putting everything together and hopefully talk with our mentor

  • Day 41 : For the love of Rubyconf Braga

    Team Ruby's secret (Exception Notification) [2016] — at August 29, 2016 22:19 UTC

    Today we had a Visa appointment at the Embassy of Portugal, we had to wait for a very long time and in the end they asked for more documents . It's harder than we thought it could be , specially because we're still students but we want to attend the Rubyconf in Braga , so we'll have to deal with these difficulties .

    Later,we were back to coding , we keep exploring new things about our gem every single time we add something new , we learn the hard way .
    For us the whole project is a big chanllege ,bigger than we expected but that won't stop us , we have a goal and we're working on it

    Team Ruby's secret (Exception Notification) [2016] — at August 26, 2016 20:46 UTC

    today we were trying to manually test the gem using the dummy app , we manually tested it before by installing it in an app that we had done a long time ago . We know now how to launch the dummy app , the problem is in the route that we should use , that's what we have been trying to know . We also watched a tutorial explaining the difference between POST and GET .
