My Outreachy Internship: The journey so far…

Progress

For the past several weeks I’ve been working on migrating Fedora Badges to Badgr. I have completed the following tasks so far:

  • Wrote an SDK for communicating with badgr-server
  • Tests for the SDK
  • Scripts to add, issue, revoke badges
  • Openshift templates for deployment

I’m currently working on adding FAS authentication to badgr-server as well as trying to work out my approach to the fedora-messaging middleware that will issue badges. I’ve learned a lot while working on these tasks including testing (which I did for the first time), OpenShift, and several nuances related to python.

Instead of Flocking to Fedora, we’re going to Nest With Fedora. I’m happy to announce that the Call for Participation is now open.
