November is upon us and its time to take it up a notch. I have two objectives to focus on during the next week:
- Contribute to an external open source project
- Contribute to an internal open source project run by my classmates
For the external open source project, I chose to contribute to vscode. Personally, I use visual studio code and being able to get involved is very electrifying for me.
After looking through the issues on the project, I found this issue. With the help of another contributor, I got a sense of direction of where to tackle the issue.
For the internal open source project, our class is responsible for redesigning the Planet CDOT where it tracks and displays blogs of students and their participation in open source. I had my mind on learning new technology and i was circling around doing some with Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment. I decided to help another classmate set a pipeline for CI/CD with Jenkins. Collaborating with someone on this issue will be less stressful and an experience.
