Hello Droid!

Hello World!

logo_equipeIt’s a great pleasure to introduce you our brand new mascot: R2-D2! Why R2-D2? Because:

  • It is a droid, and our API will be available on Android platform;
  • In R2-D2, there are a ‘R’ like Roses and a ‘D’ like Drops;
  • In Episode IV, R2-D2 delivers to Princess Leia a message containing the blueprints of the Death Star.

Also, R2-D2 is the coolest robot of the universe and beyond.

I will try to finish the project logo before the end of the week. I also have to fix a few mistakes in the Git slides.

In the meanwhile, I spent yesterday on my STM32 lab. Now the leds are fading (PWM magic!). Next step will involve conditional variables and events (I hope to finish it before tonight). We also planned the work for this week. We are all assigned to do some research on the components we will use. And we also have to finish the BLE architecture.

May the force be with you!

Drops, Git and Jedi

Hello world!

In addition to the group work on our project (see Day 2 : Drops use cases and Bluetooth Low Energy), I started to work on the Friday presentation with Benjamin.

We were asked to present how branches work in Git. I decided yesterday to ask all the other students which topics they wanted us to investigate, with an initial list of propositions. This morning, Benjamin and I also discussed with Alexis and Samuel about the most important issues to address (because there is a lot to say about Git, and we have only 20 minutes including question time). In the end, we agreed on the following plan (titles are not final, in order to preserve some suspense):

  1. The staging area
  2. Branches and how to change the past (Git workflow, merge, rebase, amend, reset, revert, …)
  3. Git magic tricks (bisect, blame, stash, cherry-pick, …)

First, I found a few good readings about Git:

I also started to write the slides (part 1 is ready). Tomorrow, according to my Asana, I will have to finish my slides, work on the guided tour use case, and many other fun things!!


Spoiler alert: There will be Jedi and light sabers during the presentation on Friday. Meanwhile, may the force be with you!
