Padawans on a Boat

Yesterday we took a day off and went to a boat trip organized by the Rails Girls Summer of Coade team and Applift.
They invited us to this lovely house boat on lake Tegel for an afternoon with cookies and BBQ, nice conversations and sun!
I have to say that the weather was perfect. Blue sky, warm sunshine. And a lake. This must be heaven.
So, no more words. We let pictures speak!

Rails Girls Summer of Code BBQ at Dawanda

July is here! Just a few days until we finally make the first steps on the path of code padawans. We are so excited!
What can be better to go to a BBQ, meet other Rails Girls Summer of Code students and coaches and lots of lovely people…aaaaaand Linda Liukas in person (the super awesome woman who founded Rails Girls)? Yes, nothing could be better.
Good that Dawanda hosted a Kick-Off BBQ party for Rails Girls Summer of Code. (Unfortunately we took not so many pictures…) It was pretty nice, jummy food and drinks and lots of interesting conversations.

It seems that there are a LOT of developers who are very interested in using our documetation testing tool. That is pretty cool and we are happy to build something useful. But it also raises the pressure to be successful.
But we wouldn’t be real padawans if we would not accept this challenge. :)

First Kick-Off Meeting

SoC Kick-Off Meeting

Sebastian, Matthias, Kacpe, Magda, Arne, Bodo, Ute, Jan


On June 19th we had our first Kick-Off meeting with our coaches Jan, Sebastian and Kacper, our mentor Bodo, our supervisor Arne and Matthias who is currently wirting a book about Padrino.

We decided which tools we will use for work and how we will work at our coaching companies Asquera and SponsorPay.
So you can find our code on github. We will use Hipchat for group communication and Trello to organize all task that appear during our journey.
After we visiting a Scrum workshop organized by GeekGirlsCarrots we want to use Scrum during our projects. It’s a great opportinity to get some experiences.

This summer will be so awesome <3
