We solved an issue with birthdate and calculating days, months and years using moment.js. We had done most of the code but it was not consistently working after the second addition or subtraction of a unit of time. We therefore got some guidance from our coach online using slack, stack overflow and with combined effort, determination we resolved the problem. It turned out we needed to use spread syntax.

This has been a good day for programming after struggling with this problem for a little while. It has been good to struggle as it will make us remember it. We got some moral support from our coach as we were feeling down that it had taken so long to solve. He advised us that it was just experience and you start to get an idea of what needs changing with more experience but he said we had problem solved it very logically.

We met at Bletchley park for a workshop for girls code MK and again explained RGSoC and our project Bahmni. We also shared jobs, conferences that had been posted. We also shared tips that our coaches and mentors are showing us to encourage future applicants.


We have done the code to solve the story problem, now we need to refactor to as one of our coach's said to stamp it down to make it clear and efficient.

We now feel we are ready to meet with our mentor to get the second part of the story finished.


Meet with our mentor tomorrow discuss testing and we have already seen on Jira part of the next story.
