A Quick Bi-Weekly Re-cap

Week 1: May 19 to May 25

  1. Researched history of OHM project in the mailing list archives and GitHub issues here and here.
  2. First OHM planning meeting on Google Hangouts, synopsis by Robert H. Warren posted at May 22 OHM Hangout Synopsis
  3. Added to Github OHM organziation and (scarily) given push access.
  4. Assigned and began work on microtask of investigating client side rendering.

Week 2: May 26 to June 1 - DRAFT/WIP

  1. Went spelunking through the OHM Rails Port to find where to place the slider (and was later introduced to (and made a small link fix within) the official OHM UI wiki page.
  2. Attended #OPW IRC chat for OPW Interns on May 27 3PM UTC.
    1. We had a round of intros and some general questions
    2. Sumana Harihareswara is now the official "so where do we go after this is over" post-internship planning mentor
    3. Sumana also posted a link to a very helpful article on when to ask for help First You Must Try, Then You Must Ask.
  3. During this week's Google Hangout meeting with my mentor, we reviewed the task from last week and discussed next steps
    1. find a place for the TimeSlider on the OHM site
    2. start finding a way to make input from the TimeSlider feed into the website and request the tiles needed (this one's a higher level task and will break out into other pieces)
  4. I posted mockups of two different ideas for TimeSlider placement:
    1. within the header of the site
    2. attached to the search box on the site
