Sorry I read 'diffs' when you said changelogs, do you mean actual changelogs?

@developerinlondon
it woud be good to send some kind of a release document when we push to live, so they see whats going on
with gitchangelog u can make changelogs that are aimed at management/testers/developers etc
and just tag the commit messages properly when you commit changes
and it also takes care of putting a version number on top based on the version tag
Baris Balic
@barisbalic
Might be a nice practice but I think if management here were concerned with that level of detail I'd be an unhappy developer.

i feel happier to keep them in the loop instead of in complete darkness
they know i am doing something and their money is being used well
Baris Balic
@barisbalic
I didn't say you should keep them in the dark either, but this would be more of a debate, I think this channel is more for the tutorials/support of codebar
Despo Pentara
@despo
@developerinlondon I'm not sure this is the right place for this questions. codebar is beginners friend, about helping people new to programming. I'm not sure if someone can suggest a better place for continuing this discussion maybe?

IRC?

@despo
Hey all, I noticed that some of the student feedback on yesterday's session mentioning a lot of time being spent on setting up envirnoments

@barisbalic
PUPPET ALL THE THINGS!

@despo
I don't know if you missed it, however in the first Ruby tutorial we encourage use of nitrous.io - looking at it, it maybe should be highlighted more

@barisbalic
I think for Nodebots events we're going to create some liveboot USB sticks
Despo Pentara
@despo
@barisbalic haha.
Baris Balic
@barisbalic
But that's not 40 people!
Despo Pentara
@despo
Oh.. that might be an idea, however, money, time, resources...
nitrous is just ready to use and we do tend to have descent internet
Baris Balic
@barisbalic
Sure, I'm a nitrous advocate too
Despo Pentara
@despo
It saves people from being frustrated and having someone else doing things on their machine for an hour or more. Also, I dont think having Ruby setup is essential to get started; maybe after getting a feel for it, they will opt for doing more JS instead - or Python. You never know.
If anyone has any suggestions on other alternatives, we can also link/mention those.

@BRMatt
@barisbalic Just meant an IRC channel as a better place to talk about the work stuff
:+1: on nitrous

Hey! Preemptive <etner>
Hello baris

@barisbalic
Hi :)
Andrew McDonough
@andrewmcdonough
Was thinking of dropping along
The degree symbol could cause issues on ruby 1.9.x
likely to cause encoding issues. not sure if everybody is on ruby 2
assuming this is the tutorial for this evening?
Baris Balic
@barisbalic
@andrewmcdonough that was the one from the last session, but people can still choose to do it at the next
(meaning tonight)
Andrew McDonough
@andrewmcdonough
ok cool. was going to send a PR with ° changed to the word 'degrees', but if it wasn't much of an issue last week, I'll leave it
Baris Balic
@barisbalic
I don't believe it was but a PR would be a good way to start a discussion on it
And make people aware there could be a problem in different rubies.
Andrew McDonough
@andrewmcdonough
ok done codebar/tutorials#76
Baris Balic
@barisbalic
it was the right thing to do :+1:, worst case scenario is that someone gives you feedback that it's not a big enough problem and you've done your duty
Andrew McDonough
@andrewmcdonough
:smile:
Despo Pentara
@despo
@andrewmcdonough thanks for your PRs. I still need to push the tutorial for tonight, but i don't think we have any students quite there yet.
Andrew McDonough
@andrewmcdonough
no worries.
Despo Pentara
@despo
