Taking farther strides now – An Outreachy Blog about Revamping Meetbot Logs

Call for Projects and Mentors for Outreachy December-March Cohort

Fedora will be participating in the upcoming round of Outreachy (December 2021-March 2022) and we are looking for more projects and mentors!

Being a community of diverse people from various backgrounds and different walks of life, the Fedora Project has been participating as a mentoring organization for Outreachy internships for years. The Outreachy program is instrumental in providing a rich experience in working with free and open-source software. Fedora is a proud participant.

If you have a project idea for the upcoming round of Outreachy, open a ticket in the mentored projects repository. Even if you don’t have a project idea, you can volunteer to be a mentor for a project. As a mentor, you will guide interns through the completion of the project. We are also looking for general mentors for the facilitation of proper communication of feedback and evaluation with the interns working on the selected projects.

Please submit your project ideas and mentorship availability ASAP. The deadline for projects to Outreachy is September 23rd 29th. The Mentored Projects Coordinators will review your ideas and help you prep your project proposal to be submitted to Outreachy.

Mentoring can be a fulfilling pursuit. It is beneficial for you, the intern and applicants, the Fedora Project, and the overall open source ecosystem. Join us in fostering the growth of our community and the love of open source!

Modifying expectations

I can’t believe my Outreachy internship is halfway done! It has gone by so fast – and it probably feels that way because of how much there is to do and learn.

I’m so grateful for the journey that I have experienced so far, with new challenges I got to learn so many things, time flies literally.

Everybody Struggles

Everybody struggles in life every now and then. Struggling is a part of life. It doesn’t matter what other people think or say, it all depends on people’s perspectives. That determines your personal struggle. We’re all pretty lazy when it comes down to it. If you’re struggling, it’s because you need to do more than you’re doing currently. But doing more of the wrong type of activity will only suffer you more.
