Aya: Out sick. :(

Productive day: We have another mentor visiting the office for two days who is very familiar with the web app that we work on, so pairing with him has been very helpful. Especially after we had a (slightly overdue) QA session over lunch, which resulted in a few bugs and mysterious issues.

The mystery issue (which, in the end, turned out to be a method being called twice) was fixed during an afternoon pairing session, the main bug is still waiting... and will probably wait a bit more while we dig deeper into our test setup. We have some test design questions to solve before Travis will be friends with us again, and at the moment, it seems a bit like any new feature we build, even when manual tests make it look like it works as planned, always results in a few dozen failing tests that take longer to fix than the feature took to build. Usually tests not directly related to our feature. Hmmm... So many moving parts, but I feel like there has to be a better solution. I hope.

Taking a step back from the small, frustrating digging around test errors, we ARE getting closer to our first real pull request. Plus it was nice to hear that there are some users really waiting for this to be completed - that's really motivating. :)
