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.

Community Outreach Revamp Update #5

In the winter months, the Community Outreach Revamp team conducted a survey. We set ourselves to host, curate and report back our results, with some interesting conclusions. Furthering on the same train of thought, we are working with the Fedora Council and Mindshare Committee on community-oriented questions for an annual contributor survey. We hope to receive a greater and more diverse set of responses as the annual contributor survey will be targeted toward Fedora’s entire contributor community, not just Mindshare and Outreach teams.

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.
