  • Day 57 of RGSoC

    Team Alexa (JoopeA Club) [2017] — at September 25, 2017 22:05 UTC

    Hello!

    Today we've been trying to connect to test server, but had no luck due to access restrictions. We've contacted our mentor so that he would lift these restrictions. In the meantime we've been doing some bug fixing.

    Team Alexa (JoopeA Club) [2017] — at September 15, 2017 20:16 UTC

    Hey!

    Yesterday and today most of the time we've been busy with writing our second blog post. We've sent a PR today, and can't wait to see it published! We've also had a call with our mentor today about our progress. For the rest of the day we've been working on the issues that we started working on this week: Docker and automatically changing user language to English, when user language is deactivated.

    Team Alexa (JoopeA Club) [2017] — at September 12, 2017 22:29 UTC

    Hi all!

    Today we've been working on the same things we've been working on yesterday: one of us was setting up the environment and documenting the process, while the other one was working on a function that automatically changes user language from any deactivated language to English. We've also started to work on our second blog post.

    Team Alexa (JoopeA Club) [2017] — at September 7, 2017 00:31 UTC

    Hi all!

    Today we've made the content of pages and communities in deactivated languages unavailable to frontend users. Tomorrow we will do the same for usernames.

    Team Alexa (JoopeA Club) [2017] — at September 5, 2017 20:18 UTC

    Hello world!

    Today we:

    • set priorities for tasks
    • started working on "Deactivated languages" issue
    • all language-dependent entities (usernames, communities, etc) have to be hidden from frontend users. Today we worked on communities and pages.

  • Day 43 of RGSoC

    Team Alexa (JoopeA Club) [2017] — at September 1, 2017 23:10 UTC

    Hi!

    One of us got sick, so we weren't very productive today. We've discussed and tried to fix the bug where admins and superusers cannot change their language through the main interface, only through admin panel. One of us has also attended Moscow Data Science Meetup today evening, where she listened to lectures on stochastic graphs in natural language processing and predicting time series. It's not particularly applicable to our project, but it was very interesting, and we think it's important to keep in touch with the local community.

    Hey all!

    Today we:

    • did a lot of commits
    • eat two delicious burgers
    • closed the issue! now language of the cite can be changed dynamically 🎉 🎉 🎉

  • Day 41 of RGSoC

    Team Alexa (JoopeA Club) [2017] — at August 31, 2017 00:09 UTC

    Hello!

    Today we found and fixed the bug that wouldn't let users change their language from settings, so now they can change the language from the settings page.
    We've also talked to our coach Kate about our middleware problem; tomorrow we'll try to implement the solution she suggested.

    Team Alexa (JoopeA Club) [2017] — at August 29, 2017 20:07 UTC

    Hi!

    Yesterday we did not work, because Sasha's flight was postponed. But today we worked together and:

    • repaired requests to the database in the middleware
    • entered into an unequal battle with the database. It does not want to rewrite language from settings
    • discussed our bugs with coach

  • Days 38-39 of RGSoC

    Team Alexa (JoopeA Club) [2017] — at August 25, 2017 22:13 UTC

    Hey all!

    Yesterday we agreed that we will not spend all of our time and efforts on middleware issue, so in these two days we've been working separately: Sasha (melanoya) was finishing the middleware, while Sasha (religofsil) added some new functionality, so now users are able not only to choose their language on registration, but to switch it in the settings whenever they want to.

  • Day 37 of RGSoC

    Team Alexa (JoopeA Club) [2017] — at August 23, 2017 23:39 UTC

    Hello!

    We've been working on our middleware issue all day – debugging is over, now we're trying to implement the correctly working version and not to break anything. We'll continue working on it tomorrow.

  • Day 36 of RGSoC

    Team Alexa (JoopeA Club) [2017] — at August 22, 2017 22:05 UTC

    Hey!

    We're getting better at working remotely – although we've spent yet another day on debugging, it feels like we've made some progress and were quite productive today. We hope to figure out our middleware issues tomorrow – we've been stuck on them for far too long now. Also tomorrow is the last warm day in Moscow, and then the autumn will probably come. But Sasha who is in Daghestan will probably enjoy the summer there next week.

  • Day 35 of RGSoC

    Team Alexa (JoopeA Club) [2017] — at August 21, 2017 22:52 UTC

    Hi!

    One of us is in Daghestan, so we're working remotely again this week. We're still debugging our middleware, there's nothing new, unfortunately. But today one of us attended Moscow Python meetup, and learned how to make applications more secure, and we'd love to try it with our project.

    • learned Dgango ORM and QuerySet

  • Day 31 of RGSoC

    Team Alexa (JoopeA Club) [2017] — at August 14, 2017 16:05 UTC

    Hello!

    Today we made progress in debugging and finally figured out how to work on middlewares that switch language dynamically, so that the information about user language will update automatically and stay updated. We've also figured out a way to add new languages to project settings via admin panel.

  • Day 30 of RGSoC

    Team Alexa (JoopeA Club) [2017] — at August 12, 2017 00:39 UTC

    Hey all!

    Today one of us has finally returned to Moscow, so we are able to work side by side again instead of using Hangouts all the time.

    We worked on security questions features today, and we'll continue working on notifications next week.

August 10, 2017

  • Day 29 of RGSoC

    Team Alexa (JoopeA Club) [2017] — at August 10, 2017 18:08 UTC

    Today was a very hot and unproductive day...
    We discussed a detailed plan for this month and worked on notifications and security questions features.
    Tomorrow Sasha finally returns and we can work together again, not remotely. Working remotely is quite difficult.
