    The official end of SoC 😭😭😭.

    It has been a great journey but we are not ready yet to say goodbye, we will be having a call with our Supervisor tomorrow then we will do an update .

    Meanwhile we have been working on removing a part of code we wrote for the home page and the search page since there is no code for the elements in the database.

    It's not yet goodbye from us :)

    This week is moving on really fast!. We had planned to ensure that we close the pending issues on our branches after creating our conference campaigns, but seems we didn't meet this milestone.

    We plan to sit and look at the pending tests and issues this remaining week as the campaign goes on, we thank all those who have seen us reach this far :-)

  • Day 60, week 11

    Team Code_Hoppers (OpenFarm) [2017] — at September 22, 2017 16:00 UTC

    Today we did more learning on coveralls. We reached out to our supervisor and opened up a documentation repository. We will be looking at this as it is a long-term exercise to ensure that all tests are centralized. We hope to classify the tests, come up with a way to automate them and work on them in the coming weeks.

    Tomorrow we hope to have a call with our supervisor for a catch up call.

    Thanks

    Today was a challenge. We intended to finish the pending rspec error on Travis, but we still have not closed on it, the following were the things we had planned to do and the plans we have for tomorrow:

    What we managed to do today:
    - Close pending rspec error - it was a challenge to close on this, Action Plan: we have reached out to our coach William for assistance.
    - Learn more about coveralls integration - more research - done
    - Proceed with the documentation of tests - not complete - wip

    The learning curve is something we have come to enjoy along the way:-) We are looking to work towards the pending issues, as well as liase more with our coaches.

  • Day 58, week 11

    Team Code_Hoppers (OpenFarm) [2017] — at September 20, 2017 15:04 UTC

    Hi everyone! Yet another successful day on our end. This week, we have majorly concentrated on testing and integration of these tests on the OpenFarm framework. We realized that documenting the tests would take longer than expected since we have to consider each feature step by step.

    What we had planned to do today:
    -Create documentation for rspec_tests that are pending - done, but still ongoing
    -Identify classifications of tests - not complete
    -Reach out to Simon for assistance with test organization - still pending
    -Ruby Practice - wip

    Tomorrow's plan:
    - Learn more about coveralls integration - more research
    - Proceed with the documentation of tests

    Blockers/Challenges:
    - Lack of adequate test coverage knowledge
    - Challenge trying to learn and implement many components at once
    - Steep learning curve

  • Day 56, week 10

    Team Code_Hoppers (OpenFarm) [2017] — at September 16, 2017 18:17 UTC

    Today was a productive day we managed to do a lot of things:

    1. We went through all the Openfarm backlog issues
    2. We closed issues that seemed like they were already solved
    3. We contributed to issue discussions by recommending how best to go about sove the issue and we asked questions where we did not understand
    4. We agreed that I will need to update the Openfarm readme to include a more detailed guide for first time users
    5. We did not code much but going through the issues and thinking them through was really helpful. It gave us a clear roadmap for the things we can work on in the future
    6. We updated the project board and its now more clear and one can get more recent issues to work on

    We feel like it was really a good day
    We thank our coach Sigu and our friend Stella Maris for coming through
    This wraps up a good week!!

    Happy new week everyone!
    We had a great weekend, we launched Rails Girls Nairobi chapter yay!! We had about 20 ladies showing up. Their rails knowledge ranged from begginers to expert levels. We wre happy to be part of the launch and we hope to spear head the development of the Rails Girls Nairobi community.

    This will be a busy week for us, we have recruited two more people to join the Open Farm project as contributors. We will be having a hackathon to try solve more Open Farm issues and this will also act as an on boarding session for the new contributors.

    Today we dealt with hound bot, we had so may hound violations (about 206 to be exact). We tried clearing most of those and it lead us to learning more about Scss lint.

    What we hope to work on tomorrow:
    Pick new issues to work on as we wait to do code reviews with our coaches on the existing PR
