Blog Entry for Week Ending February 24th

by Hilgendorf, Grady last modified Feb 24, 2017 07:54 PM
A re-cap of things that I did during this week, problems I have run into, and what I plan to accomplish before the next post. Week 1: February 20th - February 24th.

This Week's Adventure

Using the Git Workflow

For our work this week, we were tasked to work using the standard open source workflow on GitHub. This was an interesting experience due to the struggles we were having pulling and pushing to the main repository that we forked. One Issue that we had while going through the GitHub desktop app, was figuring out how to request a pull to the repository that we forked.

Diving into the Pyinstaller

As a team, my group and I decided to attempt to make a windows version of Plone installer. As of right now, we are just starting to look into the basics of how the installer would work and what types of packages and languages we would need to write in, but just by looking at a few things, it will mainly be in python, which I will need to learn to contribute to the team. After searching through the GitHub code for PyInstaller, it seems like the main files that we might want to look at are PyInstaller/building directory and the /PyInstaller/utils because they contain files regarding the executable and files specific to Windows.

Things for Next Week

After our team meeting on Sunday, hopefully, we have figured out what we are going to do about tasks for the coming week. I will also begin the process of learning Python and be asking for help from someone who already knows the language.

That is all for this week. I am looking forward to learning all I can in the coming days.
