To stay in touch with fossasia i used gitter. As Gitter is an open source instant messaging and chat room system for developers and users of GitHub repositories, with a free option providing all basic features and the ability to create a single private chat room, and paid subscription options for individuals and organisations Gitter is designed to make community messaging, collaboration and discovery as smooth and simple as possible.I can easily create, organise and grow communities, inviting others to join just in one click. it also provide integrations with GitHub, Trello, Jenkins etc.and in a real-time it is very easy simple and easy to use.
The best thing about gitter is which i liked is Individual chat rooms can be created for individual git repositories on GitHub. Chat room privacy follows the privacy settings of the associated GitHub repository: thus, a chat room for a private (i.e. members-only) GitHub repository is also private to those with access to the repository. gitter is similar to IRC and Slack. Unlike IRC, and like Slack, it automatically logs all messages in the cloud.
As fossasia is platform which bring amazing people together to create, develop, design and make things with Open Technologies – hardware and software – and share our work for the benefit of all, as well as fossasia organize science hack labs, Open Tech events, meetups and coding programs with developers, designers and contributors.it is a best platform to learn and show my ability , am interested in sciencehack.asia as In the FOSSASIA Pocket Science Lab project we get to learn to develop hardware for schools and universities to enable hands-on learning for about physics and chemistry,It Bring together forward thinking citizens with innovators, hackers, scientists, and makers from around the world in Asia to create amazing things. more over am also interested in software project of fossasia FOSSASIA Github Repo ,where we get to learn and develop many Open Source software projects from WordPress plugins to knitting machine projects or event management solutions to make a world a better place.
As open source application is developed by a non-profit community, it has some disadvantages as well with lot of Advantage 🙂 . Open–source software is free to use, distribute, and modify. It has lower costs, and in most cases this is only a fraction of the cost of their proprietary counterpart. I had many open source application installed on my computer which is countless in number. some of the highlighted one is atom by git hub, vlc media player, Firefox, word press (which i did when i took part in this event), audacity aah it’s better you see my c panel screenshot
Below screenshot of open source application running on my PC.
As am learning web-development since 2016. Day passed and i got much more interested in coding,programming and i always wanted to do coding of my own and wanted to attend this type of program while learning web-development so as to attend this type of event .I start telling everyone that if u find any event as mentioned above then would plz PM me.so at last i have been told by one friend that google held one event named Google code-in every year so i came to know about google code-in.He said that google code-in is a great platform to learn various things while learning web-development,and after that i did lot of research about google code-in on google ,YouTube and understood what is google-code-in. visit FOSSASIA website and the blog
Competition is a part of life which can’t be avoided. Even when we don’t realize we are doing it, we all try our hardest at what we do often trying to rise above everyone else.It is a knowledgeable part of life when you take part in competition.No matter what the outcome i.e u win or lose but u get much knowledge there . I participated in Google Code-in because google code-in is a contest to introduce pre-university students to open source software development. it is often the first experience to me with open source (as now am doing with WordPress) and it is easy for students to jump right in,and that too Open source organizations chosen by Google everyday introduce new task for students to work on during the seven week contest period which i think is really helpful for me and other student.As i would be getting here much knowledge to implement in my life to get one step toward success. and most important things is that in this each task has mentors from the organization assigned should students have questions or need help along the way. And most important things while we get to develop new things through this event which include following categories: coding, documentation, training, outreach, research, quality assurance and user interface ,more we get deep through organization more things we get to learn as there are many task being introduced everyday.
