After three months has arrived the end of my internship period in Mozilla for the OPW. I’ve outlined in my mind a better idea of what is Mozilla and open source. I’ve experienced this movement of people that is really passionate about what it does; a new working way, an open and smart world. I’m really thankful for this opportunity.
This internship has meant a lot to me from both professional and personal point of view. I’ve had a great chance for improving my professional skills working with a large open source project and I’ve learnt or try to :
- Don’t be shy!
- Be patience!
- Have an open mind!
- Read a lot of documentation and….ask questions!
I’ve started working with Bugmasters community, talking, helping triagers, developers and community members and I want to thanks my Mozilla mentor Liz Henry and everyone has made this possible for the help, the support and the work done.
During this period:
- I’ve created a tutorial to help learning how to triage (1)
- I’ve helped improving documentation on wiki.mozilla.org , I took part in Bugmasters Bug Days (Sumo Bugs days, Mentored and good first bus triage days, weekly triage events) and the sum of all the bugs I’ve worked on during my triage until now is in my user profile (2) and in the specific period June 17 – Sept 23 (3)
- I’ve explored what has begun a new bugmasters project to triaging Middleage bugs (4)
- I’ve created a Firefox add-on, a tool for bug wranglers to triage bugs on bugzilla.mozilla.org that has been preliminary reviewed (5)
- I’ve fixed my good first bug on firefox (6) that will be in the Firefox 25 release.
- I’ve started working on other existing coding projects on github related to bugzilla report as for example (7)
it’s the end of the summer but it’s not and and at all! In the future I’ll keep on helping and profuse my efforts and my time to help Mozilla community and live open source everyday!
See you all around the web!
