These are notes taken from the second COSI Webdev team meeting, which can be found
in presentation form here. Benjamin discussed updates on the following projects:
Next, Benjamin described many helpful resources and how we could use them in our work.
Benjamin then went over the basics of Github workflow: how issues are brought up,
branched off, committed, and finally merged after discussion and review, showing
personal examples and examples from the pages of large companies.
As an example of Github workflow, Benjamin showed this issue and eventual pull.
Finally, Benjamin introduced the Jekyll platform, the platform used by COSI to
deploy project updates and meeting minutes.
Benjamin encouraged progress on FreeCodeCamp’s CSS, JS, and HTML tutorials so come
next meeting we can be ready to do some work!
The Webdev project page will be used as a location for helpful resources.
This is some notes for the first COSI Webdev Meeting. I discussed all of the current
web projects including
As of this morning, I have been updating the navigation bar at the top of the
majority of our web pages to use a web component. Now, whenever a new site needs
to be added, I just have to edit the template for the web component and copy
that file to each site rather having to add the addition to each page on the sites.
As the semester has fully come to a close as of yesterday, preparations for the
upcoming semester is underway. One project that we would like to introduce is
a series of workshops that will give people foreign to Linux an introduction to
the community and workflow. This will include workshops that include topics such
as everyday Linux, Git, Vim, and many others.
We went over our plans for heading over to Hack Upstate. The event happens in two
weeks from today, and we are planning on bringing 5-10 people. Since doors open
at 11am, we are thinking of leaving Clarkson at 8am so we can get down to Syracuse
and find some parking with time to spare. The two costs of the trip would be gas
and parking, which we averaged to be at max $50 per car, which split between everyone
should be fairly inexpensive. We should be arriving back on campus at the lastest
around 7pm on Sunday evening.
