She promptly pushed these changes to the same PR for further review and collaboration. In another task, she successfully implemented the rounding of hour numbers to two digits by incorporating the “toFixed(2)” function into both the timeEntryController.js file for the hoursLogged variable and the userHelper.js file for the timeSpent variable. She proactively followed the link provided by Aishwarya to access the required environment variables for enabling Gmail API, which was essential for conducting thorough testing. Lastly, Xiao actively contributed to the team by reviewing PR898, PR890, and PR899, providing valuable feedback to her peers. See images supporting this below.
Xiao Wang (Software Engineer) completed his 8th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week, Xiao improved the loading speed of WBS pages by focusing on several key tasks. Firstly, he addressed a freeze problem caused by the <ReactTooltip> component, which resulted in browser freezing. To resolve this issue, he implemented a solution in which ReactTooltip.rebuild() is executed on the parent component (<WBSTasks>) to consolidate all tooltips of the child component (<Task>) into a single <div>. This significantly reduced the number of <div> elements created. Secondly, Xiao optimized the logic in the allTasksReducer.js file. Previously, the application sent multiple requests for different levels of tasks, leading to inconsistent response ordering. Additionally, when a level 0 request was made, the app would inadvertently remove tasks of other levels if their responses arrived earlier. Xiao addressed this problem by introducing a fetchedData buffer in the state. The response data now occupies a fixed position in the buffer based on its level, and a sortByNum function combines and sorts all the response data into taskItems. Furthermore, he simplified the code by allowing the sortByNum function to handle the sorting for all tasks, eliminating the need to find the index of the mother task and insert at a specific position for certain cases. He also temporarily fixed an issue where the addTask functionality failed to update the hasChild property of the parent task. In the future, this issue needs to be resolved in a subsequent pull request. XiaoW also made modifications to the allTasksReducer.test.js test file to accommodate the newly added property in the allTasksReducer.js state. He disabled certain test cases and made necessary adjustments, considering that some code in the previous version of allTasksReducer.js was solely intended to pass the test file without offering functional value. Lastly, Xiao removed redundant sorting logic in the <WBSTasks> component. See supporting images below.
Nathan Hoffman (Software Engineer) completed his 7th week helping with 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. While some work remains in terms of writing permissions and conducting tests, Nathan’s progress demonstrates his dedication and meticulous approach to permissions management. The pictures below show some of this work.
Nida Zaki (Software Engineer) completed her 6th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week, Nida made several updates to the codebase. She added min and max attributes to the endDate and startDate components in order to ensure that the End Date is always later than the Start Date when using the datepicker. Nida also dedicated time to researching validation techniques that would allow the end date to be later than the start date while still allowing manual input. She made efforts to incorporate a suggestion provided by KurtisIvey on the pull request for this task. To visually indicate validation errors, she applied CSS styling to make the border of both fields red. Lastly, she conducted research and successfully implemented sorting for Members, with a focus on giving higher priority to names starting with the inputted letter, followed by other names that include the letter. The pictures below are examples of this work.
Xiaoyu Chen (Software Engineer) completed her 6th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week, Xiaoyu diligently worked on refining the software interface. Her initial plan involved the introduction of a clear button and a dropdown menu, but she soon realized the consequential heavy reliance on the ‘reactstrap’ API. To circumvent this, she intelligently altered her approach and substituted the button with radio options, thus enhancing user-friendliness while simultaneously reducing API dependency. This constructive change further facilitated the ‘handleMoveOptions’ function to reset content based on the selected value, improving the system’s interaction with the past four weeks’ summaries. Throughout this process, Xiaoyu appreciated the insightful feedback from her colleagues. Leon Zhuang contributed by identifying typographical and capitalization inconsistencies, while Xiao Tan and OAkinbode suggested repositioning the Tab feature for a superior user experience. Taking their advice onboard, Xiaoyu adjusted the location of the Tab toggle within the handleMove functions, leading to improved user interaction. After implementing these improvements, she turned her focus on resolving bugs associated with media and Dropbox links. Xiaoyu’s initial step involved changing the weekly summary name within the create user profile function. She then developed an efficient solution to substitute the ‘mediaUrl’ in the summary submissions by incorporating a ‘GoogleDocLink’ into the ‘getWeeklySummaries’ function, a modification she intends to execute in the immediate future. Nevertheless, a minor hiccup occurred when she failed to switch between the software branches, resulting in a slight mix-up. Showing resilience, Xiaoyu successfully resolved this by segregating the issues into two separate branches, thereby maintaining the functionality and integrity of the codebase. Check out the pictures below as examples of this work.
Sneha M Madle (Software Engineer) completed their 5th week helping with the Highest Good Network software. This week, Sneha began by examining the HGN Bug list and subsequently undertook the task of addressing a medium priority bug, specifically focusing on rectifying the assign badge functionality within the user profile. Sneha performed a thorough investigation into the workings of the assign badge functionality, resulting in the identification of areas requiring code modifications. Following this discovery, Sneha made the necessary code changes. However, the initial attempts proved unsuccessful, prompting Sneha to perform another in-depth analysis of the code. As a result, it became apparent that a considerable amount of additional code alterations were still necessary, and Sneha worked diligently on implementing them. Moreover, Sneha also dedicated time to reviewing several pull requests during the course of the week. The pictures below show this work.

To address this, Lawrence extensively studied the blue square system’s mailer system, aiming to comprehend its inner workings. He meticulously logged and tested numerous blue squares in an effort to reproduce the issue. Despite thorough efforts, Lawrence was unable to pinpoint the root cause as all system components appeared to be functioning as intended. See the images below to get a look at some of this work.
Leon Zhuang (Software Engineer) completed his 3rd week 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 is shown below.
