Outreachy Week #10 (and message to potential new interns, if any of you read this)

Got the optional task up early this week! Good thing, too, as I haven’t been feeling very well since Tuesday. 😦

So that’s pretty much all the MVPs that have been scheduled in my proposal, woohoo! 🙂 Not sure what I should be doing after this – probably do another announcement on the mailing lists, fix any further bugs that are reported, and start on the documentation and wrap-up report? We’ll see what the mentors think during our next meeting. I can’t believe the project is nearly over! It’s been a whirlwind and a half, but so very fulfilling. And I’ve learnt so, so much. Not just about coding, but about collaborating and FOSS as well. Good stuff.

Which reminds me – the application process for the next round of Outreachy and GSoC is starting soon! If any of you potential new interns are reading this – go for it! Really. Find an organization, a project/mentor, make your small contributions, and submit your application. Start as early as you can, but don’t worry too much about it, the folks in charge are very helpful and encouraging, and they most certainly do not bite. 🙂

If you are interested in applying to Wikimedia, this is an excellent place to start.
