Day 27 - Progress has been made!

August 7, 2018 16:43 UTC Team GirlsCode MK (Bahmni) [2018]Subscribe to this teams's activities


  • met with Bahmni mentor Ivo who is the most patient coach on the planet!
  • discussed the date functionality again and this finally led to some breakthrough
  • we were also talking to our local coaches and asking them about best practices - sometimes there are many possible solutions and it's hard to see what's right (e.g. question: in Reactjs is it better to bind functions or keep them as anonymous functions that are fired up onChange? answer: no definite preference. Just be consistent.)
  • refactored our existing code, removed unnecessary items from react state, which makes our app clearer and more concise
  • read a lot of momentjs documentation: we are now much clearer on formatting issues and calculating the difference between two dates


  • reading up on ReactJS, watching tutorials on states vs props, react setState API
  • studying ES6 Javascript - destructuring and spread/rest operator
  • going through our code, removing what's unnecessary (both in terms of react code and css)

To Do

  • GirlsCode MK meetup tonight which will give us an opportunity to talk about our project and less experienced coders
  • perform a npm build of our app and run it through Lighthouse audit (how are we doing in terms of accessibility and speed?)
  • talk to coach Ivo (story 3 should be coming up!)
