Mini Morning Scrum
Teaching session in the afternoon.
* Karla taught Emma about Data models from the book Algorithm
* Emma taught Karla about the sort method and it's originally from C that coach Jake Boxer went through the other day.

Karla:
- continuing to write RSPEC tests for Cork : CocoaPods
- read from this site http://tutorials.jumpstartlab.com/topics/internal_testing/rspec_practices.html to learn about RSPEC best practices
-discovered this doc site : https://www.omniref.com/ruby/gems/cocoapods/0.17.2/symbols/Pod::UserInterface/warn used it to understand some of the UI Code
- used some of the examples here to better understand recursions base case's in Java - http://danzig.jct.ac.il/java_class/recursion.html
- read section 1.1 http://algs4.cs.princeton.edu/11model/
-read http://www.the-unlimited-mind.com/too-brainy-for-my-computer-how-programing-will-become-the-next-mainstream-computer-user-evolution/ because it is about a similar topic to my CodeConf Write Up.
Emma:
Session with Ross McFarland in the morning on how to break down solving a bug. I picked his brain on how he would search for the things you would want to change in the codebase. In the main directory he would do
grep -r "The string you want to look for" PrecifiedDirectory/
We used git diff to better see the changes I had already made.
To limit the search result one can do
grep -r "The string you want to look for" PrecifiedDirectory/ | grep -v filenameyouwanttoexclude
It was interesting to compare his method to other coaches methods that I've seen before. It seems like everyone find the method that works for them and stick with it.

Continued practicing Ruby on RubyMonk
