I am Mina, one of the team members of OpenArms
Project; today I will tell you what happened in our lab on Friday instead of Kraen
Like our previous days we started our work by description
of the tasks assigned to each team member.
Mine was the best one! We have been informed that Friday
is an open day in FH JOANNEUM University and we will have high school students
who want to visit university and be involved in the projects of IP DOSSEE. So I
was in charge of joining these students and explaining them what we are
After each pair of technical leaders did their presentation (and I was alone
and not a technical leader!) Mr. Takashi asked the students to choose their
group and interestingly I got the most!
First I explained them what we are doing and showed
them how our website works. They seemed interested in Java programming and told
me that they learned programming in High school, also they asked me a few
questions about doing an exchange programme and studying with international
students. After that I invited them to visit our laboratory and meet the other
Kraen explained the students the project in more details and suggested
them to join different sub teams and see what they are doing.
After lunch we said goodbye to the students and I
started searching about how to make a form in Google documents.
Oh sorry, I just talked about what I did; let me ask
the others to see what they did!
Dima made an option which allows teachers to format
text in the answer fields.
Karina has changed the view of our main page.
Bernhard exchanged the rest client with the API client
and out phased the org.json package.
Pedro and Roman, they created the user model for the
Natro and Patrik created the method to get the API to
Attila did some stuff in the corner.
Kraen toyed around with the APIClient class of the
frontend, trying to expose the API in a developer-friendly class. He also
removed unused fields from some models and tried to separate the api package
from the model classes of the service ... i.e. a lot of technical stuff
By the way, finally Friday we decided about the logo
and one of the logos suggested by my brother was chosen. I saw Karina struggling
to put it in the website!
For the afternoon we had a presentation about open
source business by one of the graduated students of JOANNEUM University (honestly
that’s just what I guess, I was asleep during the whole presentation!) and after
that we left university for the social event of visiting Beer brewery in Göss.
That’s quite all we did on Friday, I hope you enjoyed reading
our diary as much as I enjoyed writing it! Please share your ideas via comments!
