#61 Welcome to Fedora, @viveks!
Closed: C: Incomplete 11 months ago by ankursinha. Opened 2 years ago by ankursinha.

Hello @viveks ! 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! :)


Thanks.

Hey @viveks, it has been a while since we have heard from you. How is it going? Did you find anything interesting to work on? Also, should you have questions or queries - feel free to comment under this ticket and we'd be pleased to answer.

Please go ahead and introduce yourself as a comment to this ticket or on the mailing list.

Hey, I'm sorry for not being active. I try to find where I can get involved, but I couldn't find the exact way or channel to contribute. It will be great if I can have a skype call with anyone who can give me an overview, if possible.

Here's my introduction:
I'm working as a project assistant at the National Brain Research Centre in a Cognitive Brain Dynamics Lab (CBDL). I'm enthusiastic about python and Linux. I have been using Fedora since I was introduced to Linux. I have previously worked on computational drug discovery projects and now computational neuroscience, and I have been using python for data analysis. My formal degrees won't convince you for what I do now, I have a masters degree in Biochemistry, but I learned coding from Coursera and as a part of the work requirement.
I love the concept of open source and happy to contribute.

@ankursinha You might find this interesting. Tagging you :smile:

as @t0xic0der point you there is an Special Interest group about this:

Thanks! I'm not sure but perhaps we've already had a chat in the NeuroFedora channel @viveks ? If not please ping me in there sometime. I'm generally around on all working days from 0900--1700 UTC.

NeuroFedora, of course, is specific to Neuroscience, but we also have the more general SciTech SIG for general science and tech stuff. So lots of scope to get involved :)

Sure.

Hi @viveks : 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.

https://lists.fedoraproject.org/admin/lists/india.lists.fedoraproject.org/

sure!

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.

Please be sure to let us know if you have found something to contribute to, so that we can go ahead and tag this ticket with the shiny "I am Fedora" label and close this as "Complete" to celebrate your commitment.

Hi,
I want to work closely with NeuroFedora. I'm excited to contribute to the integration of signal processing techniques that are more relevant to neuroscience. I'm also happy to look at the bugs coming up with the current projects.
Please tag me to relevant ongoing issues where I can start contributing.

Hi @viveks : it isn't quite possible for us to tag folks individually to issues. It just doesn't scale. It is also not how FOSS communities work---we don't assign each other tasks, we look out for them and take up stuff we want to work on :)

Could you please try to attend the regular neurofedora meetings, or if not possible, please go through the logs to see what was discussed and what issues/bugs are there to be worked on?

Hey there,

Please note that this is the final progress check we are making from our end - failing to respond to in seven days of which - we would close this ticket. Don't worry though - we understand that there can be circumstances due to which you are unable to devote time but you can come back later too and continue contributing from wherever you left off.

Hi,
I guess, for now, you can close this ticket. I'm extremely sorry for not being able to contribute. Hope to join again soon.

Hi @viveks

No worries at all, it's always quite a challenge to find time to volunteer. We all empathise with you.

I'll close the ticket now, but please do re-open it whenever you think you have the time/resources to take it up again.

Please remember that you can still hang out in all the channels and remain part of the community.
