Want something quick like oven-heated baked rice? Call that API!
The formatting is not that important since the main takeaway here is to be able to call that API!

For the past week, I have been working on the login system of my Orbital project. Today, I took the time prettify the application so that I will not have to spend time creating a prototype. The login system is not done yet, but things like registration, logging in and out, and updating profile should be fine.
Unfortunately, the credit for building the system should not be given to me, because I simply followed an e-book and made appropriate but simple changes to model after my project's idea.
Again, the credit for the responsive sidebar cannot be awarded me, since I git cloned from elsewhere. I did the smooth integration though.
I also did the initial commit of a competition website in the afternoon. Similarly, I grabbed material from Bootstrap and mixed in whatever I liked. However, I am not the main person-in-charge of this project, so I guess my purpose was to motivate people to start hacking away.
What I learnt today is how to steal other people's work and transform them into my own (:

I will be conducting 2 workshops for Orbital as a representative of NUS Hackers. The workshops are HTML and CSS, and Ruby on Rails. Below is the link to the folder where I am going to store all of my workshop material.
Pre-Rails Homework must be completed before the Ruby on Rails workshop so that we can work on Rails together during the workshop.
Some workshops I conducted in the past (this is mainly for my personal reference)
13-2-16 HTML and CSS
25-2-16 Command Line and Git

I participated in the first hackathon of my life - 29/4/16 (8.30pm) to 30/4/16 (11.30am).
I mainly learnt how to create web server requests via jQuery's $.ajax() function. I hope to reinforce this concept in the Orbital workshops.
In addition to using Bootstrap's responsiveness design, I have also used other CSS, and JS components, including Modals (JS), but I could not see myself replacing prompts with forms in Modals.
I felt a little uncomfortable because I am trying to write a web application not in Rails. I bumped into many bugs because the HTML string in the jQuery append function was too long. I made the Facebook engineers busier than expected with my bugs. And I feel like I have thrown away a lot of my debugging power (probably too late in the night to stay sane).
Special thanks to my team of gurus, who end up advising me, teaching me, and sometimes debugging for me.
