Really excited to be accepted for the project “Debian Continuous Integration: user experience improvements” (referred to as debci in this post) of the 2019 May-August round of the Outreachy internship! A huge thanks to my company and my manager Frank for letting me do this since I mentioned it out of the blue. Thanks to the Women Techmakers community for letting me know this program exists.
There are already blog posts that also has an introduction of the program, such as:
- How I got into Mozilla’s Outreachy open source internship program
- My Pathway to Outreachy with Mozilla
- Outreachy: What? How? Why?
To me, the biggest difference between Outreachy and Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is that you don’t have to be a student in order to apply.
This post won’t be going into the details of “What is Outreachy” in this post, and will focus on the process, where everyone will have a different story. This is my version, and hope that you can find yours in the near future!
