Happiness Packets and Fedora GSoC 2018

I was selected to work with Fedora on the Fedora Happiness Packets for GSoC 2018! A shout-out to Jona and Bee for helping me with the proposal and initial PRs!

About me

Hi there! My name is Anna. I go by the username Algogator on IRC and elsewhere.

  • I study computer science at the University of Texas at Arlington.
  • Python is my favorite language. Been using it for everything for the past 6 years.
  • Huge open source fan. I started a Firefox club at my university. Currently president of the Python user group at UTA (PyMavs).

What I’ll be working on and why

The Happiness Packets is an open source platform to spread gratitude and appreciation among contributors in the community. For Fedora Appreciation Week 2018, having a Fedora themed Happiness Packets site will encourage and make it easier for people to send positive feedback to their peers (anonymously if they like). I’ll be mainly working on integrating fedmsg (to award a Fedora Badge for sending a message) and adding authentication (for FAS) to the Django project. Read more about my work on Fedora Happiness Packets over the summer on my personal blog.

Call for maintainers: Fedora package tagger

The Fedora package tagger application is looking for new maintainers by April 5, 2018; otherwise, Fedora Infrastructure will retire the app.

Before DevConfCZ 2018, the Fedora Infrastructure team met to review the “state of the apps” in Fedora’s infrastructure. The fedora-tagger application is currently broken since the decision to retire PkgDB. The core Infrastructure team does not have bandwidth and time to focus on this application, since there are other areas to focus on at the upcoming Infrastructure Hackathon.

Fedora participating in Google Summer of Code 2018

GSoC is a summer program aiming to bring more student developers into open source software development. It enables students to spend their summer break working with open source organizations on projects proposed by participating organizations and supported by mentors.

The Fedora Project has participated in Google Summer of Code (GSoC) as a mentoring organization for over a decade now. Once again, Fedora is participating again this year. We are happy to be accepted again as an organization this year and are looking forward to working with many bright and excited students across the world on many parts of Fedora.

Call for Outreachy mentors for Summer 2018

The Fedora Project is looking for mentors for project for the next round of Outreachy. For those who aren’t familiar, Outreachy is a paid internship inspired by Google Summer of Code for people underrepresented in tech. Interns work remotely with mentors on projects ranging from programming, user experience, documentation, illustration and graphical design, to data science.

Every idea or project needs one or two responsible mentors to teach and help the intern. Please note that Outreachy applicants are expected to make a first contribution to the project they are applying for so mentors need to have proper tasks defined for applicants to work on. Mentors should be able to commit at least 5 hours a week on most weeks from the beginning of the six-week application period (February 13, 2018) through the end of the three-month internship (End of August). You should have a real interest in their success and be engaged and excited about the project.
