Hey, you all!
This week is the last one of our first month!!! it is so nice to contribute to this open source project.
We think we will never stop!
So, we are crazy to finish the conference functionality to see it being used! but of course, we think it will take a while.
Today we have fixed some other issues from the second PR (there are 8!) and have finished the third one.
Our focus is to merge the second PR so we can keep going through the next ones.
Today we also published an article in our medium page!
Tomorrow we will start the next issue that is not too coupled with the one we are waiting for the merge!

Today I came across a correction and I was wondering: there are so many ruby (and rails) methods to verify the presence of something in a variable. What are the difference between all of them?

Today was a very difficult day, we spent the morning integrating the issue that would complement the issue of which we are working. We also created the tests for all our changes and some other tests to increase the coverage of the scenarios. We are now looking forward to reviewing our amendments and approving our PR. We hope that Monday everything is already reviewed so we can move on to the next issue.

We are very grateful for the reviews because it is from it that we can improve, think of different ways of solving the same problem. We are working hard on this issue as it is part of a larger context that will benefit all Rails Girls Summer of Code project participants. Thank you to everyone who has been part of this wonderful experience.

Hello people, so today was another day of review and bug fix, but finally, after long arduous days, we made our PR. The issue we're working on is a bit complex because it contains a lot of business rules and requires a little more attention in implementation. Tomorrow we will check the review of our PR, change what is necessary and submit PR again.
We hope everything is okay for us to leave for the next issue.
Thank you all for this wonderful RGSoC learning experience. <3 We love it all <3

That is it. We are enjoying every moment of this experience.

Today we started to work in the tests...
We added a new functionality asked by the issue we are working on, but a lot of tests just broken. It took a while until we figure out how the flow works, but that is ok. We could solve some broken tests and hopefully yesterday we will understand better the app and the flow. The RGSoC teams app documentation and code are REALLY great. Everything really organized and we want to do everything as good as possible to keep the quality.
Also, we published our second blog post in medium about rspec and shared examples.
Tomorrow, We hope to finish with this broken tests to start a new issue.
That's all folks!

Today was our first official working day as RGSoC students!
And we are really excited to start working in the RGSoC teams app :D
A lot of things happened today:
* We had a kickoff call with all the nice people involved in this project! It was really nice to meet all of them
* We started our first blog post
* We started to solve the first issue
For now, we are getting acquainted with the project, going through the docs and getting the environment set up.
We will go through the issues and select the ones we will start working with.
Also, we saw that some of the technologies used on the project we have to study better (like slim used in the views).
