Hello crypticani! Welcome to Fedora!

Before we begin, please subscribe to the Fedora join mailing list at
fedora-join@lists.fedoraproject.org
.
We use this list for general discussion, and it is also where the community
shares tasks that need help.

Then, could you please introduce yourself (preferably on the list) so that the
community can get to know you? (interests, skills, anything you wish to say
about yourself really)

In the meantime, these links would be a good read. They tell you what the
Free/Open Source community is about, and then they'll introduce you to Fedora:
what Fedora is all about, and what we do, and of course, how we do it:

If you have any questions at all, please ask! We'll use this ticket to keep in
touch! :)

Hi, it's Aniket,
I am a tech enthusiast, pursuing Bachelors in Computer Applications. I have tried several Linux Distros since last year and found fedora very much interesting. Since then, I am using fedora regularly. I am a student now, aiming to do some valuable contributions to the Linux world and fedora. I have also a passion of writing. I maintain a tech blog and active on quora, helping others in their problems related to computer science and Linux apart from my studies. I am also a contributor in Linux Central, a space on quora. I can also do translations as I know English and Hindi both.

Hello @crypticani, welcome.
If you like to write, you could consider to contribute to the Fedora Magazine [1]. We are always looking for good and original articles.
You could contribute to the documentation too, expecially quick-docs [2]
If you run a blog, and you write for instance about your experiences using Fedora, you could consider to include your blog in the Fedora Planet aggregator [3].

However, for the first steps, I would advice to read the links provided in the first post of this thicket; look around, subscribe to some mailing list, lurk in some chat and go to know people and workflows.
If you have questions, please use this ticket or write in the Fedora-Join telegram group or in the mailing list.

Ah! Translation.
Nowadays, translating stuff is pretty simple, even if many localization teams are a bit inactive, as teams.
Subscribe to the international mailing list [1], and send an introduction email; then look if there is an Hindi team or at least other people that support this language. Get in touch with them if possible.
Go to the translation platform [2], log in with your FAS account, and start translating!

I have started translating Anaconda/master on Fedora Weblate.

Currently, I am only doing translations (English to Hindi), whenever I find some free time from my classes.
I am in the 5th semester of my Bachelor's degree in Computer Applications, learnt C, Java and Python (I prefer Python over Java), and now learning C#.NET. I would like to apply my programming skills and do some contributions to the open source.
Could you please guide me from where should I start?.

Only? Nah, It is pretty fine and appreciated!

Maybe there is something in Hacktoberfest?
Ping @t0xic0der

Whoops, I missed the tag by three months - I'm so sorry.

So you mentioned that you are interested in Python right? There are a couple of projects that I think we could appreciate your assistance - First being Mote and the second being the modernization of Easyfix.

Take a look at them and reach out to me on Matrix at t0xic0der, should you be interested.

Also, it has been a while since the last time we have heard from you. How is it going?

Here's hoping that you enjoy contributing in Fedora and feel free to reach out with any question or queries you may have by commenting under this ticket.

I have participated in the hacktoberfest 2020 and completed the 4 PRs.

During these days, I am busy with my final year college project and my studies(I am a student of BCA), but in the meantime, I am exploring Python, solving some competitive coding problems, doing mini-projects in Python, translating sometimes at Weblate, and exploring Fedora 33, which is my daily driver.

I would love to work on any beginner-friendly Python project, but could you please tell me where can I find the Mote and Easyfix so that I will have a look at them.

Let us limit the scope of this ticket to its purpose. If there are questions, like I said, please reach out to me on Matrix/IRC/Telegram with the username t0xic0der.

(Hey, @alciregi I was thinking - Did you take part in this year's Hacktoberfest challenge too? :grin:)

Hi @crypticani : would you also please subscribe to the Fedora India mailing list and introduce yourself there? We're restarting regular meetings and that'll be a great way to meet other contributors from the region.

Hi,

It has been a while since the last time we heard from you. I hope you are doing well and I just dropped by to see if you have found something interesting to work on. :-)

We love interacting so please feel free to reach out to us if there are any questions/concerns that you may have regarding how you can contribute to our projects.

According to the "Welcome" workflow, this ticket would be closed if no response is received within two weeks of time. That is, of course, not to say that the doors are closing as you can always come back and continue from wherever you left off previously.
