This week, Loza Ayehutsega (Civil Engineer/Assistant Civil Engineer) completed another week of assisting with Earth Dam Design and construction for Water Retention, Pond, and lake Creation. Loza incorporated a new section into the report document, focusing on dam safety programs. A Dam Safety inspection program involves a methodical assessment of dam conditions to ensure their safety. The overarching goal of such programs is disaster prevention through the proactive identification and mitigation of potential risks. Successful implementation requires close collaboration among various stakeholders, including government entities, dam proprietors, engineers, and the general public. The primary aim is to safeguard both the integrity of the structures themselves and the downstream communities they impact. Take a look at the pictures below to get a glimpse of this work.

Julio Marín Bustillos (Mechanical Engineer) completed another week of assisting with the City Center Dome Hub Connector Engineering. Julio undertook the intricate task of modeling hub connectors for the fourth row of the project. Building upon the process from the previous third-row design, he followed a similar pattern that entails crafting unique models for each individual node. An intriguing revelation surfaced as the fourth row displayed a reduction in the number of nodes compared to the third row, suggesting the potential for a more streamlined workflow and accelerated progress. In the upcoming days, Julio’s focus will remain on meticulously developing these hub connectors, ensuring their precise alignment with the project’s specifications and design standards. The pictures below provide a glimpse of the images.

Skye’s summary, covering their work on the Highest Good Network software, was managed by Yiyun Tan and includes Yiyun Tan (Management Dashboard Team Leader), Bailey Mejia (Software Engineer), Jerry Ren (Full Stack Developer), Luis Arevalo (Front End Developer), and Yao Wang (Software Engineer). This week, Luis focused on enhancing the functionality of the weekly summaries report component by incorporating a copy button. Within this feature, users who have submitted summaries are presented with a copy button, facilitating admins and owners in efficiently copying the text to their clipboard. Additionally, this button was integrated into the current user’s profile page, accessible through the “Show team weekly summaries” option, enabling team members to view and copy each other’s summaries. In parallel, Luis conducted a thorough review of pull requests (PR) 1146 and 1140, confirming the successful implementation of the respective developments. Notably, PR 1140 involved the addition of text to various permissions, although some instances were identified as lacking proper text. Meanwhile, PR 1146 addressed the presentation of a user’s name in bold during deletion, enhancing text visibility. Over the course of the week, Luis effectively addressed comments and suggestions related to his PRs, alongside resolving a navbar bug. This bug hindered both Luis and users from accessing all links within the Navbar. Through meticulous troubleshooting, including an environment reset, he successfully resolved the issue, restoring full access to the appropriate links. Jerry, a member of the Development Team, focused on enabling the assignment of the “See Only Weekly Summaries Reports Tab” and “See User Management Tab (Full Functionality)” permissions to users who do not possess these permissions by default. Additionally, he undertook the task of revising the titles and descriptions of these permissions as they are displayed on the Permissions Management Page. It was Yao’s first week as part of the developer team. Initially, he familiarized himself with all relevant documentation and identified new tasks to undertake. Yao conducted testing on 7 pull requests, performing thorough fringe case testing across different accounts. The PRs subjected to testing were: 1162, 1166, 1169, 1172, 1177, 1181, and 1182. Among these, improvements were suggested for PR 1162, though it was approved due to its continued functional use. In the case of PR 1182, which introduced new features, modification requests were made due to incomplete implementation. Apart from these two PRs, all others successfully passed the testing phase. Bailey focused on advancing the development teams to Phase 2 of the project. One significant task involved addressing the “suggestion” button issue. Bailey hypothesized that the suggest button was not visible for the mentor and manager roles due to the user possibly selecting the edit task permission over the suggest task permission, given the former’s higher precedence. After collaborating with a colleague to test this theory, both confirmed that the functionality was rectified and no longer problematic. In the interim between tasks, Bailey conducted reviews on several PRs: #1155 “Leaderboard refresh message”, #1163 “Indentation of sub permissions”, and #1172 “Improve summary loading performance”. All three PRs received Bailey’s approval, facilitating continued work on new features and bug fixes. Subsequently, Bailey addressed a minor issue on the Reports page for the people section, ensuring proper padding to prevent the card bottom from blending with the background. This adjustment was seamlessly integrated into the Dev phase. Wrapping up the week, Bailey embarked on a comprehensive task of testing all Badges for functionality, reporting any anomalies. Out of the badges tested, several remain under developer scrutiny for further debugging. Yiyun adeptly addressed lint-fix tasks, establishing a dedicated channel with assigned team members, and initiated collaboration. She made significant contributions to production database connections, updates, and PR reviews, providing valuable assistance to fellow team members. See the collage below for their work.
