Created 5 years ago by rtnpro

Please set the "Component" below to the correct event for your request.

Tell us the following:

  • What do you need covered? (Please estimate the costs in USD: hotel $X, travel $Y)
    Travel $210, Hotel $40

  • If we cannot provide a full subsidy, will a partial subsidy be helpful?
    Yes

  • If Yes, specify the minimum amount you need covered to facilitate your attendance.
    $210

  • What will you accomplish by being at FUDCon? (Please be as specific as possible, since this is the most important factor in granting requests.)

I am a Fedora contributor ( ambassador, packager). I am also an upstream contributor to the Transifex project. Currently I am working as an intern at Indifex on the Transifex project. I have been working on multiple things for Transifex : bug fixing, testing, some front-end stuff, backend, api, etc.

I will be giving a talk on the Transifex project to make people aware how Transifex is playing an important role in software localization and internationalization, talk about features of Transifex and how to contribute to Transifex.

I will also be giving a talk on Django testing and code coverage based on the experience I gained working for Transifex.

Not just talks, I am also going to conduct a Hack Fest on Django testing with Transifex. Transifex is a very successful open source Django product. I think it will be great to have hands on experience on testing a real world Django product. We will be writing new test cases, increase code coverage and if possible find loopholes in the existing Transifex code and fix them.

  • If you are requesting airfare, include complete flight information such as flight numbers, desired departure and arrival airports, and times. Also let us know if you have specific time restrictions.

  • What do you need covered? (Please estimate the costs in USD: hotel $X, travel $Y)
    Travel $210, Hotel $40
    It seems the Hotel cost is $40 X 3 = $120

This ticket was approved in the August 5th subsidy meeting. We've agreed to pay up to $210 USD for travel fare, as well as four nights in the hotel.

Please note that since you haven't marked yourself as sharing a room on the wiki, you'll need to either pay for half of the room cost out of your own pocket, or agree to share a room with someone else.

Travel details: Fare - Rs. 9,605 (approx. $218 @ $1=Rs. 44)

I will be sharing Hotel room with Harsh Verma. I have updated that on the wiki now.

Can you attach the pdf copies of the tickets you have booked?

Never mind. I see you have already done so
