A good news for you all. I am very happy to say that Gnome has launched its Round Seven of Outreach Program for Women (OPW). The program is for ladies only. So many of you might be wondering: Hey what is this OPW? ladies don’t be so impatient, i am answering it but first see here a beautiful info-graphic about the program. It will give you overall picture of the program. There are various FOSS organization participating in it and they have cool projects for all of us. This year participating organisations list can be found here.
So hurry up find your interesting projects and start contributing to amazing projects. OK now i will tell you little bit about my story :). After going through the project list of various organisation I found Fedora Infrastructure Data Visualization: Datagrepper / Dataviewer project very exciting as well as challenging. I have selected it because there are many aspects in this project that aligned with my interests i.e. data-visualization, databases, web-technology and best part “working in Python Environment”. Also Fedora is my favorite linux-distro and contributing it means a lot to me. I also contacted my mentor Ralph Bean through email as well as irc chat. He is very supportive kind of person and getting good responses from him.
Now i am moving forward for making some contribution to the project. I have started tweaking API, dependencies etc.
I will keep updating you all with my new journey for making contribution to open source community. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I will be very happy to answer your questions.
Stay tuned to my blog, till then happy coding.
