2010

Python developer/mentor

At the age of 17 I joined theOLPC projectandSugarlabs, which arrived in Paraguay with the goal of helping the country the develop by donating laptops to every child, as a volunteer.
My main contributions and interests were fixing and debugging issues in Sugar, the learning environment specially designed for children who could not read yet, and writing applications, so called "activities", for it.
Hand-in-hand with other people I helped children age 8-12 to learn how to program with the Python programming language.
Heck, I enjoyed that!

Writing Open Source Code

I dedicated my summer vacations to enhance existing Open Source code, being mentored by great people; the whole event being sponsored by Google.

I learned how to coordinate with people in projects with hundreds and thousands of contributors with Git and issue trackers, like Bugzilla, and E-Mail.

Part of the learning experience was to learn C and JavaScript.

Most importantly I delivered code/patches to enhance legacy code being used by thousands of users daily.

My main contributions went to:

GNOME

Ganeti Web Manager

MoinMoin
