Because of that, openSUSE participates again in GSoC, an international program in which stipends are awarded to students who hack on open source projects during the summer. We are really excited to announce that this year four students will learn about open source development while hacking on openSUSE projects.

Can we after two years say something new about it? And the most important part, should we start using it, if we haven’t use it until now? :thinking:

A failing test for Christmas

01 January 2018

It seems I have really well behaved on 2017, because Santa Claus brought me a failing test for Christmas. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: I found out a piece of code, that was only wrong from 26th to 31st December. :christmas_tree: Image you want to write a Ruby method for a Rails project, where you want to get all the users of the database that have birthday today or in the next 6 days, given that the birth date is stored in the database for all users.
