Getting selected for Outreach Program for Women (December2013- March2014)

22 Dec

I am bit late in posting this beautiful news :). As its said “better to be late than never” let me share one of the best experience of my life. I came to know about OPW when I was in second year of my B.Tech. I applied for it in the same year as well. I could not make it but definitely learnt a lot from the experience.

1) Searching about all the participating organizations, https://wiki.gnome.org/OutreachProgramForWomen

2) Going through projects on different platform. Selecting project.

3) Talking about project on their respective IRC(Internet Relay Chat).

4) Getting mentor , getting his/her guidance (actually most of the IRC folk help as much as they can, that was the most appealing thing which stuck me about IRC).

This year I applied again taking Fedora as my project organization. Name of my project is “unit test SSSD”, references to which are:

a) https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/

b) https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/wiki/DesignDocs/TestCoverage

I was really lucky to have Jakub Hrozek, https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Jhrozek as my mentor. He is very good and approachable. I could do my initial contribution to the project very efficiently with his guidance. Marina Zhurakhinskaya , Lukas Slebodnik, Sumit Bose and whole team of Fedora as well as Gnome were really helpful. Getting into OPW means a lot to me. I am sure to learn a lot (which I am!!). At the same time I wish to be an asset to the organization. Right now I am working on my December task. Will share more about the project in the next blog…. 🙂
