Sprint Two: Profile Picture

Day 7 was the first day of the second sprint – which meant starting again on a new aspect coding all over again. Today I tackled profile pictures for Balyistic – the community management tool – and general picture uploading and cropping – pairing with Jenny through the process. Jenny was looking into documentation on cropping images for most of the day while I looked into the actual uploading, displaying and storing of images.

Although I hit a block at several points during the beginning of the day regarding how to upload and store the image, eventually I figured it out and ended the day with a working optional profile picture upload, a default image, and updating picture – all of this with size restrictions placed on the process. Definitely proud of my work today and excited to tackle image cropping with Jenny tomorrow and round out the profile set up features!
