Beyond Outreachy: Final Interviews and Internship Review

Beyond Outreachy Interviews and Review

The last few weeks (week 11 – week 13) of Outreachy were probably the hardest weeks. I had to do 3 informational interviews with the goal of getting a better picture of the open source/free software industry.

The thought of talking to someone I don’t even know just overwhelms me. So this assignment just leaves me scared to death. Pressing that “Send Email” button to these interviewees required me to summon up all of my courage but it was totally worth it. I really appreciate their time for chatting with me.

On the other hand, it’s hard to believe the internship is coming to an end! Good news is that I will be sticking around Debci after this.

Outreachy Week 8 – Week 9: Remote or In-Office Working

Remote or in-office working

The Week 9 blog prompt recommended by Outreachy was to write about my career goals. To be honest, this is a really hard topic for me. As long as a career path involves some form of coding, creating and learning new things, I’m willing to take it on. The best situation could be that it is also doing something good for the society. This might be because that “something that I am too passionate for” doesn’t yet exist in my life. For now, I wish I’d still be coding 5 years from now. It’s just that simple. The only thing that I would like to see improvement upon is gender balance for this industry.

As for working environment, I would like to share some thoughts after having experienced both extremes of totally remote work and complete in-office work. There are a lot of articles out there comparing the pros and cons. Here are just my opinions on the time spent not working:

  • Dozing off
  • Socializing

Outreachy Week 6 – Week 7: Getting Code Merge

Outreachy Week 6 and 7 Getting Code Merge

Already half way through the internship! I have implemented some features and opened a merge request. So… what now? Let’s get those changes merged once and for all! Since I’m already at mid-point, there’s also a video shared on what I’ve done so far in this project.

  • Breaking large merge request into smaller pieces
  • Thoughts on remote pair programming
  • Video sharing for the current progress with the project

Making that video was probably the most time-consuming part. Paying great respects to all YouTubers out there!

Outreachy Week 5: What is debci?

Outreachy week 5 what is debci

The theme for this week in Outreachy is “Think About Your Audience”. So I’m currently thinking about you.

Or not?

After being asked sooo many times what am I doing for this internship, I think I never explained it well enough so that others could understand. Let me give it a try here.

debci is short for “Debian Continuous Integration”, so I’ll start with a short definition of what “Continuous Integration” is then!
