    Great, thanks, Anderw.
    The TA side of the app isn't really in place, but students can at least start making submissions.
    Andrew Michael Potter
    @AMPotter
    Cool. Will you post here when the TA side is ready to go?
    Brook Riggio
    @brookr
    Hopefully people will be able to do it today/tomorrow.
    and Dale and I will continue work on the TA side.
    Yes, we'll let you know.

    Sweet.

    Assignment is showing up on my end.
    Brook Riggio
    @brookr
    Please remind your cohorts about the survey assignment today.
    Also, you can now create accounts in the PGP app, and we'll set your role to TA directly in the back end database. The pages to create a plan aren't accessible yet, but you can see what the students are answering, and we can start to collect our favorite resources to share.

    Just created an account. Once my role is changed I assume what I view will be different?
    Samantha Camus
    @xdothackerx
    Created my account as well~
    Brook Riggio
    @brookr
    Great, I've got Andrew, Zach, Nick, Samantha, and Bryan set as TAs in the system.
    Stay tuned for word from @dcorns on when the TA side will be accessible.

    @dcorns
    I expect to have the PGP creation feature deployed later today or early tommorrow
    Brook Riggio
    @brookr
    Yay, thanks, Dale!
    Samantha Camus
    @xdothackerx
    So if students don't have things turned in by the 15th, are we supposed to give them 0 points/incomplete, or just leave them ungraded...?
    Samantha Camus
    @xdothackerx
    Also, only one of my students has turned in their self-assessment for personal growth plan. Should we expect to have those before we try to write PGPs for them?
    And, are those sent to CF directly? Because all that was said by the one student who DID turn it in was "Finished my assessment! Please review. :)"
    Brook Riggio
    @brookr
    Actually, you can give 0s for uncompleted work NOW.
    Your plan for anyone with outstanding work should mainly be: "Work through the assignments from class, here's some extra related resources"
    Brook Riggio
    @brookr
    Anyone have any other questions as we finalize grades and start on the PGPs?
    Brian Caldwell
    @Caldwerl
    So we are 0ing out anything unsubmitted at this point?
    Also is the PGP thing ready at this point or are we still waiting on that?
    Dale Corns
    @dcorns
    PGP will be ready for your responses sometime today.
    Brook Riggio
    @brookr
    @Caldwerl Yes, zero out anything not submitted.
    Dale Corns
    @dcorns
    Sorry the app is a little late, doing some code review, but a functional version all be it not so pretty should be available real soon. To view progress or to log any issues after deployment see https://github.com/dcorns/PGP-WEB-APP
    Brook Riggio
    @brookr
    @dianapham, @nowhannahwon: Got you upgraded to TAs now.
    Brook Riggio
    @brookr
    Hey y'all... Sorry for the delays in the PGP app.
    I'll go ahead and release checks for anyone that gives me a written commitment to do a good job creating PGPs for your students. Email me: brook@codefellows.org.
    Dale Corns
    @dcorns
    In case the word did get out, today the pgps can be created on the site now.

    @samhamm
    Hi everyone. I've not been around the chat since I have not had any of my students turning things in... until late last night. I've now processed all of the grading for my section, and ready to write the PGP for the one student in my section who completed the survey. I take it I need to be converted to TA status for the PGP system?
    Dale Corns
    @dcorns
    @samhamm done
    Brian Caldwell
    @Caldwerl
    Is there any way to see the details of the resources?
    Sam Hamm
    @samhamm
    Thanks Dale!
    Dale Corns
    @dcorns
    @Caldwerl Currently you would need to add it...if it is a link, you would need to open it. Then if you don't want it, just remove with alt+click
    Brook Riggio
    @brookr
    Lots of resources need to be added still
    Brian Caldwell
    @Caldwerl
    Yeah does anyone know of a good site with some simple object oriented practice problems? I remember one of the students asking during a lecture if there were any good resources other than a big book to learn OO and I said I don't know I learned OO from a big book.
    Sam Hamm
    @samhamm
    I'm working on compiling some resources to add to the menu on the PGP page, just going through my hundreds of bookmarks and trying to find the most concise/direct options.
    Dale Corns
    @dcorns
    I added a Monzilla article that could be usful
    Brook Riggio
    @brookr
    Awesome, thanks for leveraging your bookmarks, Sam!
    Sam Hamm
    @samhamm
    @dcorns, how much of a PITA would it be to set it up so that we can edit the resource lists? Like, as in I just added one that I made a mistake on by putting a URL in the Title field, and would like to fix it?
    Brook Riggio
    @brookr
    OO is really about modeling real world, so I'd encourage projects that model something: a airport, a hotel lobby, a library, a kitchen... look around, pick anything, and model it with objects in code using the right level of abstraction.
    Dale Corns
    @dcorns
    @samhamm thanks for the feedback, due to the time crunch, you would just need to make sure to get it right and hopefully there will not be too many mistakes. Let me know about mistake and will remove from database manually. Also, please add the feature request under issues at https://github.com/dcorns/PGP-WEB-APP .
    Sam Hamm
    @samhamm
    OK, @dcorns, gotcha. I'll be uber-careful. My URL error is in the very first General Resources menu.
    Dale Corns
    @dcorns
    I know the app is coarse right now as we just needed to be able to use it as soon as possible. Ya' All are welcome to fork and submit pull request for any issues. Just create your own branch and make sure it is up to date with dcorns ; the preproduction branch.
    @samhamm What's the correction needed.
