I'm Snehal Baghel a soon to be graduate ( as soon as the lockdown gets over
of Christ University, Bangalore. You might have already seen me hanging out
the channel although I realized I never actually introduced myself so here
I started coding only as a hobby in high school but soon switched gears
Biology background to join BCA at Christ. I'm currently interning at a
in Bangalore where I've been mostly working with React though I'd like to
and test my skills for roles other than frontend which is why I'm here to
*'Fedora Badges - Backend Engineering'*. I chose this project as I
believe I have the
skills that were mentioned in the project skill requirements and have prior
with them. I hope to contribute to and learn from this well-established
Thanks and Regards,
I hope this email finds you well
I am Eugine from Kenya, proud to be part of the Outreachy 2020 applicants.
I am also super excited to be joining the Fedora Community as a
contributor. As a junior python developer, who is also new to open-source,
I am looking forward to an exciting journey, hoping to gain a lot from the
Fedora and the open-source community at large.
Hi Everyone !
I hope all are doing well.
I am Purnika from India, an Outreachy 2020 applicant. I am an avid
python/django developer and am looking forward to contribute to Fedora
Badges - Backend Engineering project. I am still a novice in the field of
open source, but I hope I get to learn a lot from the Fedora community and
my co-aspirants. :D
My name is Sukrutha and you all can call me Sukku. I am one of the
Outreachy Internship Aspirant based out of Sydney, Australia. I recently
finished an online course on Python and Docker. When I got selected to the
contribution phase, I was aiming to choose projects which would help me to
grow and expand my skill sets on Python and finally I found the fedora
projects to be very interesting and different. To start with badges, I
would like to contribute to this project due to the scope of learning
Django framework which I know just the basics and also to connect with the
talented engineers working on the project. One of the main reasons to
contribute to open source is that I never got the chance to do it earlier
and would also want to know more about the open-source projects, community
and how it works.
Thanks and Regards,

Hi folks! This week, we updated our documentation for development and
design contributions to Fedora Badges:
This section on the docs page explains in more detail how to get
involved and start contributing to the Badges project. The existing
mini-projects are explained there, but there are also new Python/Django
tasks to pick up too.
Also the section for designers got a refresh too.
If you have questions, come find us in #fedora-badges on IRC or
https://t.me/fedorabadges on Telegram!

Hi,This is Akanksha Mishra. I've recently graduated from film school in Pune, India and currently work as a freelancer. Over the last few years I've developed an interest in programming and have been playing around with something or the other in this domain. I'm looking forward to make the most out of this opportunity and hope to better my skills while I contribute to this project. I have worked on some Django applications now and then but on here, I hope to get hands on experience with production level code.Thank you :)
