My name is Aditya Konarde. I am from India and this is my first time
contributing to an open source project. I am pursuing a Bachelors Degree
in Computer Science Engineering, and have a fair knowledge of Python, as
well as commonly used web technologies.
I have achieved the Red Hat Certified Engineer, RHCSA, RHCSA(OpenStack)
certifications. I also have a working knowledge of Docker, and my final
year project is on automated bare metal deployments.
As you could guess from my profile, I am interested in both Dev and Ops :)
I got to know about the fedora-commops group in a recent fedora online
webinar, and I would like to contribute to the following: Storytelling
(Magazine, blogs), Wiki and the Culture.
I enjoy working with the community and have organised various events at
the college level. I feel that my experience with such events will prove
valuable for commops, as well as any fedora events in India.
I am also looking forward to contribute into development and QA.
Looking forward to grow with the community :)

Hello, Aditya! Welcome to Fedora CommOps! We are glad to have you join
us here. Sad regards about this week's meeting - due to connectivity
issues with freenode and personal issues on my end, we had to cancel
last minute. But rest assured, we meet at the same time every week, so
you will be able to participate again in the coming future. :)
Awesome to hear that you are a student and a Pythonista! I am also a
student in the US as well. Contributing to an open source project for
the first time can be daunting, but it is absolutely worth it. Your
Python skills can definitely be put to use as Fedora is an innovator
when it comes to Python. We're actively leading the Python 2 => Python 3
porting effort, and countless applications in our infrastructure are all
powered by Python! You might have seen some of them already: FAS, Fedora
Badges (Tahrir), Pagure, and many more.
For storytelling, the wiki, and community culture, there are definitely
ways for you to help contribute. Storytelling is some of the most
important work we do because we're helping communicate all of the
awesome things happening in the Fedora community to the rest of the
world. The Fedora Magazine and the Community Blog are both great tools
for aiding us in storytelling. You can learn more about writing for
either at the following links (it is worth noting that the Magazine is
split off from CommOps, so they have their own mailing list too).
Wiki gardening is also one of the many tasks we assist with, but it is
usually dealt with on an ad-hoc basis. There are some larger tasks
related to the wiki in our Pagure repository. We use Pagure for "keeping
track" of all the ongoing tasks and projects we are working on here in
CommOps. I definitely recommend exploring some of the issues in the
repository, and if anything looks interesting, feel free to comment on
it as well!
Hopefully this is enough to help get you started with for now. Feel free
to check this all out, and if you have any questions, please let us
know! Don't be afraid to ask questions. :)
Again, we're glad to have you here with us, and welcome aboard!!
