Day 27

Aya is travelling to Seattle to a conference, so the rest of the week will be Anke-only.

I read some more about testing (suggestions for further reading from yesterday's coach sessions).

I also played some more with our next story - I realized that our first attempts actually weren't too user-friendly, so switched from UUID to a more human-readable (and type-able) coupon code format. I tried getting it to work within LEAP - no success so far, while the necessary parts work on the rails console, mysteriously the code does not get saved to CouchDB. A quick session with Klaus didn't lead to a solution yet but hey, baby steps...

Also, that functional test that hasn't turned green for over a week has now been "resolved" - or, actually, removed. We found out by digging more through a submodule that it was testing unused code... and it didn't seem to make much sense to find a solution for a test that tests dead functionality.
Tests remain mysterious: Locally, they all pass and give us a pretty collection of green dots, on Travis, there are two errors and a failure. And right before the end of the day, it turned out that if I run only the unit tests on my laptop, I get the same errors Travis shows - but not if I run the entire set of tests together. Why oh why?!
