Lastly, Julia integrated relevant content from older sections into already-edited segments and removed any obsolete information. See the images below that show
One Community is forwarding positive change through a Duplicable and Sustainable City Center that is LEED Platinum certified/Sustainable, can feed 200 people at a time, provide laundry for over 300 people, is beautiful, spacious, and saves resources, money, and space:
This week, Charles Gooley (Web Designer) completed another week of assisting with web design. Charles worked on feedback for the Solar Microgrid Setup Maintenance tutorial. The comments involved correcting links to images and tables, and ensuring that all other figures had links to spreadsheets where applicable. Then he worked on comments for the Duplicable City Center Engineering page. Some comments were to add bullets to some of the lists, make a number of corrections and add missing images, convert equations from image to html text, and make additions to some of the Tables of Contents. The pictures below offer a visual representation of this work.
Julio Marín Bustillos (Mechanical Engineer) completed another week of assisting with the City Center Dome Hub Connector Engineering. This week, Julio made progress in the installation of hub connectors along the nodes for the City Center Dome. Julio successfully completed the placement of 9 hub connectors on the right side of the node for the second row. The only discernible distinction between these hub connectors is a minute difference in angle. Although this discrepancy is not expected to impact the overall design, it is essential to incorporate these slight variations in the 3D model to ensure precise fitting during the final assembly. To differentiate between brackets with different opening angles, distinct colors were assigned. These brackets will play a crucial role in the completion of the hub connector assembly for all the nodes in the second row. The pictures below provide a glimpse of this work.
Yiwei He (Mechanical Engineer) completed another week of assisting with the City Center Dome Hub Connector Engineering. This week, Yiwei completed a report comparing the Traditional Geodesic Dome Model with the City Center Dome Model. The simulation worked on vertical loads, wind loads, snow loads, and earthquake situations. The findings of the report revealed that the load capacity of the City Center Dome surpassed that of the traditional dome. See some of this work in the pictures below.
Ranran Zhang (Architectural Designer) completed another week of assisting with the updated video for the Duplicable City Center internal and external walkthrough. This week, Ranran addressed some errors present in the Lumion Model, ensuring its accuracy and functionality. Additionally, she dedicated her efforts to incorporating video clips into the project. By carefully selecting specific views that showcased the herb garden and root cellar, Ranran enhanced the overall visual experience. To further augment realism, she integrated figures and plants into these chosen views. Take a look at the images below to see some of the progress made in this work.
One Community is forwarding positive change through Highest Good food that is more diverse, more nutritious, locally grown and sustainable, and part of our open source botanical garden model to support and share bio-diversity:
This week the core team further reviewed the open-source Chicken Coop designs. We completed updates, reviews, and edits for the Chicken Doc pages 166-199, which cover the topics of nesting boxes and window and fan installations. We also reviewed the FAQs and completed some of the unanswered questions. See the pictures below that are related to this.
Zhide Wang (Mechanical Engineer) completed another week of assisting primarily focused on data entry tasks for the Transition Food Self-sufficiency Plan, completing three of them and partially filling out the fourth. Due to the absence of specific numbers and factors for certain ingredients, he invested additional time to determine accurate values. He also helped with the Aircrete and earthbag compression testing but encountered challenges with the Aircrete WBSs due to misunderstandings, resulting in a prolonged effort to address them. Although he dedicated considerable time to this task, he was unable to complete it and aims to exert his utmost effort to finalize it in the upcoming week. Get a closer look at this work through the pictures below.
One Community is forwarding positive change through Highest Good education that is for all ages, applicable in any environment, adaptable to individual needs, far exceeds traditional education standards, and more fun for both the teachers and the students. This component of One Community is about 95% complete with only the Open Source School Licensing and Ultimate Classroom construction and assembly details remaining to be finished. With over 8 years of work invested in the process, the sections below are all complete until we move onto the property and continue the development and open sourcing process with teachers and students – a development process that is built directly into the structure of the education program and everything else we’re creating too:
This week Brian Muigai Mwaniki (Structural Engineer) completed work helping with the Ultimate Classroom. Brian made significant progress in completing the structural details, with 98% of the work now finished. The remaining 2% involves editing a few text elements, which will be addressed once the structural design is finalized.

One Community is forwarding positive change through a Highest Good society approach to living that is founded on fulfilled living, the study of meeting human needs, Community, and making a difference in the world:
This week the core team completed 68 hours managing One Community volunteer-work review not included above, emails, social media accounts, web development, new bug identification and bug-fix integration for the Highest Good Network software, and interviewing and getting set up new volunteer team members. The pictures below show some of this work.
Another core team member began verification of all the modifications made to the working Highest Good Network software. She conducted testing on HGN PRs (Pull Requests). After a thorough evaluation, she marked the following PRs as fixed: 727, 412, 886, 930, 926, and 948. However, several PRs were identified as not fixed, including 908, 916 (working only for Owner accounts), 920 (working only for Owner accounts), 928 (requiring changes in seven different locations), 941 (missing “WEEKLY SUMMARIES LINK” field in the user’s profile), and 840 (not fixed for certain accounts). Additionally, a new bug was discovered. The committed hour’s changes were not reflected on the Core Team Dashboard, but it was resolved during this week as well. Tatyana also prepared the account data setup for retesting PR757. See the images below for examples of this work in progress.
Abdelmounaim “Abdel” Lallouache (Software Developer) continued his work helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week, Abdelmounaim focused primarily on frontend development. One of the key accomplishments was the addition of the “setUpNewUserPopup” modal file, which facilitates the process of sending a setup profile link to a provided email address. Additionally, the “tokenProtectedRoute” component was implemented, enabling the validation of token-based links and subsequent redirection to the setup page. On the backend side, Abdelmounaim introduced the “sendLinkMessage” function, which generates the email body for sending the setup link. Notably, the “getSetupToken” function was also updated to include the functionality of sending emails to new users, providing them with a link to set up their accounts. The pictures below are related to this work.
Alyx Parr (Senior Support Specialist) completed another week of assisting with management, coordination, and overall support of the One Community project. This week, Alyx transferred the summaries of the volunteers onto a Google Doc. prepared for the One Community Website Blog. In addition, she acquired the knowledge, through a process of experimentation and refinement, necessary to prepare the blog for Sara’s inclusion of the accompanying visual content. Furthermore, Alyx provided assistance to the volunteers by offering guidance on measurements and ingredients relevant to the Transition Food Self-sufficiency Plan. The pictures below are examples of this work.
Aishwarya Kalkundrikar (Full Stack Software Developer) continued helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week, Aishwarya successfully resolved a bug related to double notification emails for a blue square that was manually assigned. Aishwarya identified and removed a duplicate ‘useEffect’ hook in the code responsible for the blue square, specifically within the handleSubmit function, which handles user profile saving logic. The presence of the duplicated ‘useEffect’ caused the handleSubmit function to trigger twice, resulting in the user profile being saved twice and two email notifications being sent instead of the intended one. Additionally, Aishwarya conducted thorough testing of the functionality, including its corner cases. In addition, she reviewed and approved frontend PR#925, and began working on another assigned bug related to a change in the total remaining hours for users. Further understanding of this change is required to address the bug as the functionality to mark a task as complete is now changed. Aishwarya also went through some files to find issues related to no blue square getting assigned even when the weekly summary was not provided. She found that many changes were done in the file WeeklySummary.jsx and suspects that the issue lies in it. The pictures below show some of her work.
Eduardo Horta (Software Engineer) provided more of his ongoing assistance with the Highest Good Network software too. This week, Eduardo took the initiative in improving the user experience by implementing Skeleton Loading components throughout the application. He created a SkeletonLoading folder in the common directory, replacing the outdated <Loading /> component. The new SkeletonLoading component was designed to dynamically switch between different cases based on the props it receives. Eduardo successfully added Skeleton Loading to the WeeklySummary and WeeklySummariesReport pages, enhancing the loading experience for users. Furthermore, he implemented Skeleton Loading for the UserProfile and UserManagement pages, ensuring a seamless loading transition. Eduardo also dedicated time to cleaning up the SkeletonLoading component for the UserManagement page and updating it for the UserProfile page. In order to consolidate the changes, he raised PR #962, titled “Eduardo add skeleton loading feature to all components,” and skillfully resolved any conflicts that arose during the pull request process. The images presented below exemplify his work.
Edwin Estuardo Lau Mack (Software Engineer) dedicated his efforts to advancing the development of the Highest Good Network software. This week, Edwin completed the task “Change location and function of red X” by aligning the deadline notification icon in the progress bar, preventing it from occupying extra space in the team member task rows and instead placing it on top of the progress bar component. Additionally, Edwin submitted a pull request (PR) that made the “Total Time” in the leaderboard appear blue when it differed from the “Tangible Time.” Furthermore, Edwin worked on enabling Owner/Admin to edit the “Total Valid Weekly Summaries” number. To achieve this, he created a new ArrowCounter component that allowed users to increase or decrease the number displayed on the screen. Upon clicking the up or down arrow, a request was sent to the backend to update the corresponding property, ensuring that the new count would be displayed upon refreshing the page. Images showing this progress are below.
Jianjun Luo (Software Engineer) continued developing the Highest Good Network software. This week, Jianjun successfully implemented a new feature on the report page. The feature enables admin to conveniently view or hide the number of members who have contributed over ten hours, along with their total tangible hours, for any selected time period. Additionally, a bar graph is dynamically generated to depict the monthly or yearly distribution of the data, depending on the duration of the selected period. To facilitate further exploration, users can effortlessly access a detailed list of the contributing members and directly navigate to their individual profiles with a single click. The pictures below are related to this work.
Jinchao Feng (Software Engineer) continued improving the Highest Good Network software. This week, Jinchao focused on cleaning up commits on the main branch and updating it to the same version as the development branch to resolve merge conflicts in the latest pull requests. He also addressed issues related to the timer not functioning correctly and investigated and resolved a bug that prevented the editing of time entries. Additionally, Jinchao began the process of formatting the code according to the latest ESLint and Prettier rules. Please refer to the pictures below.
Jonathan Carpena (Full Stack Developer) gave his continued support to the Highest Good Network software. This week, Jonathan undertook a review of two pull requests, namely 925 which addressed badges and text, and 944 which focused on fixing linting errors and nesting element errors. Subsequently, Jonathan dedicated his efforts to the implementation of a new feature in the application. This feature empowered admin users with additional options for their Weekly Summaries, including the ability to choose “Not Required” or select a specific team. Following the successful completion of the initial pull request, Jonathan proceeded to debug website issues that had been reported in the coding-problems channel on Slack.
Kaixiang “Kevin” Gu (Fullstack Software Developer) focused on the Highest Good Network software. This week, Kaixiang dedicated time to conducting final reviews for three pull requests, namely PR905, PR906, and PR908. In addition, he addressed an issue where the weekly committed hours couldn’t be updated in the user profile. Kaixiang successfully resolved this problem by implementing a hotfix, submitting a new pull request, and obtaining approval. He also allocated time to setting up the application environment on a Mac, and reinstalling all necessary components from scratch, resulting in the successful running of the application. Pictures below show some of this work-in-progress.
Lawrence Chua (Full Stack Software Developer) further assisted with the Highest Good Network software. This week, Lawrence focused on two tasks to enhance the functionality of the system. The first task involved improving the visibility of time entries that were not associated with specific tasks. To achieve this, Lawrence implemented a solution that highlighted the text of such time entries by making it bold and introduced a white bar within the colored bar on the left side of the task to indicate it as a non-task entry. With the completion of this task, Lawrence proceeded to open his first pull request. The second task entailed resolving a bug related to name changes for assigned resources when adding a task. Lawrence successfully identified a solution to this issue, which involved ensuring that the task displayed the updated name of the user even after their name was changed. See the images below to get a look at some of this work.
Leon Zhuang (Software Engineer) continued helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week, Leon addressed a bug related to the display of user profiles. Specifically, he rectified an issue where, when viewing a user’s profile, the text indicating the number of badges earned by that user incorrectly implied that it reflected the viewer’s own accomplishments rather than the user whose profile was being viewed. To resolve this, Leon implemented logic to verify whether the user was viewing their own profile, and subsequently modified the text accordingly. Additionally, he contributed to the bugs and new features document by generating a descriptive summary for a newly developed interactive map feature. His work by him is shown below.
Lucas Emanuel Souza Silva (Software Developer) further assisted with the Highest Good Network software. This week, Lucas diligently focused on implementing code for a specific task, utilizing the slice with userProfile to establish the appropriate state when users access another user’s dashboard. Additionally, Lucas extended the codebase to enforce limitations on user interactions within the dashboard, while preserving distinct interactions for owner and administrator users. Throughout the week, Lucas devoted time to reviewing pull requests (PRs) that required final review before submission and commenced the implementation of code to retrieve tasks associated with the viewed user. Furthermore, Lucas resolved challenges encountered during the merging of the development branch with the task 171 branch and contributed to the final review process by assessing a PR. Pictures of some of this work are below.
Lucile Tronczyk (Full Stack Software Developer) continued developing the Highest Good Network software. This week, Lucile conducted a thorough investigation into the bug that arises when attempting to edit blue squares while users are set as inactive or active. Despite the modal no longer appearing, an error persisted in the console. Lucile dedicated efforts to further examine and address the issue, particularly focusing on resolving the steps involved in making a user inactive and subsequently editing their corresponding blue square. Additionally, Lucile initiated the creation of a Google document intended to serve as an informational resource for the app, aiming to include relevant information points. Moreover, Lucile engaged in a search to identify the specific location of an existing information point within the app, with the intention of drawing inspiration for the creation of other information points. The pictures below relate to this.
Nathan Hoffman (Software Engineer) continued improving the Highest Good Network software. This week, Nathan actively engaged in the code review process and carried out various tasks related to permissions. He reviewed PR 401 and generated a bug report. Additionally, he re-reviewed PRs 867 and 842, providing additional suggested changes. Nathan reviewed the implemented changes in PR 881, ensuring their effectiveness, and subsequently approved the PR. Upon request, he re-reviewed PR 842. Furthermore, Nathan verified the existence of all necessary permissions in permissionsBackEnd and immersed himself in permissions documentation. He completed a form for proposing changes and worked on merging back-end and front-end permissions. During the process, he encountered an instance without back-end permissions and proceeded to replace front-end permissions that had corresponding back-end equivalents. Nathan’s efforts included attempting to set up a test database for alternate permissions, but instead, he created an alternate role collection in the main database. Despite this, he successfully achieved the functionality of alternate permissions. The pictures below show some of this work.
Nida Zaki (Software Engineer) further assisted with the Highest Good Network software. This week, Nida researched React hooks and successfully implemented the functionality to set the latest project value and latest team value within their respective functions called in the useEffect hook. Furthermore, the cause behind the issue of the front-end failing to send requests for updated changes to the server was identified for the task when saving the edited changes in the time entry form. To address this, appropriate measures were taken to rectify the problem. Additionally, improvements were made to the system’s functionality by implementing sorting capabilities for the list of names in the resources field. This enhancement allows for sorting by either first name or last name when adding or editing a WBS task. The pictures below are examples of this work.
Olawunmi Ijisesan (Administrative and Management Support) completed another week of assisting with management, coordination, and overall support of the One Community project. This week, Ola focused on tasks related to the Website Blog. She dedicated time to watching tutorials, editing summaries, and copying and pasting the required work for the week. Furthermore, Ola engaged in a conference call with Jae to discuss relevant matters. In addition to their work on the blog, Ola also contributed to the Transition Food Self-sufficiency Plan by entering all the recipes from the Master Recipe and 3-Day Menu Blocks Doc into the designated spreadsheets. Pictures of some of this work are below.
Papia Sharmin (Full Stack Developer) continued working on the Highest Good Network software. This week, Papia made several notable contributions to our project. Firstly, she implemented a new feature that displays a message to users if they don’t have any other team members in their team. This enhancement was added to the “Add My Team” filter task. Additionally, Papia introduced a “View Suggestions” button on the Task Edit Suggestion page for the new task. This button allows users to easily access and review suggested edits. Furthermore, she incorporated the functionality to approve tasks within the Task Edit Modal by implementing the “Approved” button. Furthermore, Papia made important modifications to the system, enabling administrators to view the notification count on the dashboard upon logging in. This change provides administrators with quick access to essential notifications. Lastly, she diligently reviewed Pull Request #864 and provided her approval. Below are some images related to this work.
Raul Effting (Jr. Front-End Web Developer) continued his help with the Highest Good Network software too. This week, he created new pull requests (PRs) with updated code and a new timer. One of the PRs for the new timer required fixing, leading to the creation of a new PR. Additionally, Raul created another PR incorporating the new timer. They worked on resolving a loading issue and attempted to find a solution for the new timer to function on the development environment, but unfortunately, were unsuccessful in their efforts. Below are some images related to this work.
Sav Costabile (Web Developer) continued helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week, Sav dedicated their efforts to reviewing the entire userHelper file responsible for managing badge assignments. They focused on refactoring obsolete code to enhance readability and enable scalability for future badge implementations. Towards the end of the week, Sav focused on troubleshooting a peculiar issue related to the inadvertent assignment of blue squares to users upon completion of their hours. The pictures below relate to this work.
“Sola” Olusola Akinbode (Full Stack Software Developer) continued forwarding with the Highest Good Network software. This week, Sola made progress on PR 838 by focusing on the migration of CRUD operations from Axios calls to Redux calls. He also introduced a new tab/button called “Summary Teams” within the “View Profile” section. This feature allows users to view the summary teams they are a part of. Sola implemented functionality that enables users to add or remove themselves from a summary team. However, the ability for admins to add a summary receiver remains restricted to the summary management tab, which is exclusively accessible to admins. The summary receivers within a team receive reports from all team members associated with that particular team. Look below for pictures of this work.
Stevie Acuña (Volunteer Graphic Designer) completed another week of assisting as a volunteer graphic designer helping with graphic design projects for all of One Community. This week, Stevie focused on creating blog images for social media and YouTube posts, ensuring visually appealing content for the organization’s online platforms. He also dedicated time to generating numerous volunteer announcements and developing supplementary web content, contributing to the effective communication of volunteer opportunities. Furthermore, Stevie reviewed and incorporated new volunteer background imagery into the volunteer announcement template, enhancing the visual presentation. Through these efforts, Stevie has been consistently providing materials that align with the organization’s requirements, supporting its overall objectives. Examples of his work are below.
Xiao Wang (Software Engineer) continued helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week, Xiao focused on enhancing the logic of the WBS task system. The current implementation heavily relied on DOM manipulation, resulting in potential conflicts with React and unintended behaviors. Another concern was the utilization of settimeout to simulate a loading effect, which was deemed inappropriate. Progress was made in implementing the nesting of Task components within Task components, aiming to facilitate improved functionality without relying on DOM manipulation. Additionally, XiaoWang explored the possibility of utilizing the WBS schema’s modification date property to detect changes in the database and notify users when attempting to make modifications, such as adding new tasks. See supporting images below.
Xiaoyu Chen (Software Engineer) continued helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week, Xiaoyu successfully separated the mediaUrl and googleDoc Link in the system, thereby enhancing clarity in the user profile. In tandem with these modifications, the user’s name now clearly indicates the difference between these two links. Any changes made to the mediaUrl will automatically reflect on the user profile page, ensuring real-time updates. Xiaoyu also efficiently segregated these two links in the summary report for improved navigation. Notably, she initiated a meaningful change in the phrasing on the summary report page: the term ‘weekly summary: duedate’ has been replaced with ‘Submitted on submitteddate’. To streamline operations, Xiaoyu implemented a ‘move summary’ feature that resets and updates the summary report. She meticulously addressed a typographical error and later removed the checkbox to confirm the move operation. The move dropdown menu now reads ‘move this summary’, adding coherence to the interface. On selection of the week, a popup will display for user interaction. No changes occur upon choosing ‘close’, but when ‘confirm’ is selected, the move function activates. Additionally, Xiaoyu incorporated a save function for confirmation. She simplified the previously complex ‘handleSave’ function by rewriting the code, thereby improving its readability. The move function was subsequently bound to the save function, promoting seamless operation. Xiaoyu, always proactive, prioritized and addressed several urgent bugs in the system. She made a substantial contribution by integrating a role information modal in the basic user information tab, enhancing the user’s ability to navigate and interact with the platform. Check out the pictures below as examples of this work.
Yihan Liu ( Software Engineer) continued development on the Highest Good Network software. This week, Yihan focused on three specific tasks: modifying the layout of the “create new user” form, eliminating the need for additional save when adding projects and teams, and ensuring the task summary refreshes after editing and saving. To address the first issue, Yihan successfully resolved it by consolidating the Row component of UserProfileAdd.jsx into a single class and incorporating a style property. Regarding the second task, Yihan implemented an automatic closure for the team popup after assigning a team, streamlining the process. Lastly, for the third task, Yihan fixed the problem by updating EditTaskModal.jsx to execute the reload function upon clicking the “update” button, ensuring that the task summary reflects the latest changes and updates. See the pictures below related to this work.
Yiyun Tan (Management Dashboard Team Leader) continued improving the Highest Good Network software. This week, Yiyun dedicated her time primarily to the “HGN documentation improvements” plan. She conducted extensive research on the GitHub Wikis and thoroughly reviewed all existing documentation. Based on her analysis, Yiyun formulated a detailed plan outlining the necessary updates for specific files and identified areas where new documentation needed to be created. In addition to her documentation responsibilities, she actively supported the entire team by providing assistance and conducting code reviews, as she routinely does. Yiyun’s contributions were invaluable in ensuring the team’s productivity and maintaining the quality of the project. Below, you’ll find pictures highlighting the development of this work.
Yongjian Pan (React.js/MongoDB Full Stack Software Developer) continued assisting with the Highest Good Network software. This week, Yongjian focused on improving the usability of the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) by implementing a feature that allows users to directly access specific WBS pages by clicking on their respective names. However, during the implementation, issues arose as the corresponding pages became unresponsive when WBS names were clicked. Consequently, he dedicated time to debugging and identifying the underlying reasons behind the unresponsiveness. Additionally, Yongjian worked on the task of enhancing the login experience by implementing functionality that informs users if their account is no longer active. Through these endeavors, Yongjian demonstrated his commitment to improving user navigation and ensuring effective communication within the system. See the images below for a look at this work.
Yufei Zhang (Software Engineer) further assisted with the Highest Good Network software. This week, Yufei started her first pull request aimed at improving the functionality of the intangible time number with a mouseover explanation. She started by creating a separate working branch from the development branch and pushed it to the remote repository. By the end of the week, Yufei successfully implemented the desired behavior: the time number now appears in blue or remains unchanged based on the presence of intangible time. Each time number is accompanied by a mouseover text that provides a clear explanation for its blue or non-blue appearance. When no time logged, the mouseover text displays “No time logged yet.” For only tangible time logs, it shows “XXX hours logged.” In cases where both tangible and intangible time are logged, the text reads “XXX hours logged (XX intangible).” Yufei also made progress in allowing owner users to edit the mouseover text, although she is still working on determining the optimal approach for storing the edited and logged text information. Please see below for pictures of this work.
Zubing Guo (Software Engineer) focused on the Highest Good Network software. This week, Zubing joined the development team and quickly familiarized herself with the application’s frontend and backend structure. She diligently reviewed the existing bug list and took on the task of adding “Admin Document” and “Link to Media Files” to the Profile page, recognizing its urgent priority. Before diving into the code implementation, Zubing conducted comprehensive testing to ensure functionality and meticulously planned the data retrieval logic and tab design. By locating the relevant code in UserLinks.jsx, she successfully modified it to display Dropbox links from the adminLinks section on user profiles. Moreover, Zubing enabled the editing of both Google Doc and Dropbox folder links within the adminLinks. Additionally, Zubing took the initiative to create new files specifically for storing Dropbox links separately from other links. She implemented the necessary functionality to add a dedicated tab for Dropbox links on the profile page. Look below for pictures of her work by her.
The Highest Good Network software PR Review team also worked to test all of the above PRs and find any bugs they could within those PRs and the software as a whole. This week’s active members of this team (completing a minimum of 10 volunteer hours each) were: Anish Pandita (Software Engineer), Carl Bebli (Software Developer), Hector Agudelo-Carmona (Front-end Developer), Igor Rocha da Silva (FullStack Developer), Jiangwei Shi (Full Stack Engineer), Kurtis Ivey (Full Stack Developer), Maham Almizan Khan (Software Engineer), Olga Yudkin (Software Engineer), Tim Kent (Full Stack Software Engineer), and Yao Wang (Software Engineer).The collage below shows a compilation of the work from this team.
