The power of community

Hello, what’s up?

I’m so happy to announce that  I talked about all I’ve learned in my internship with OpenStack in two events. My internship finished but not my contributions.

  1. ARGCONF  at RedHat Arg


I joined vkmc in her talk about The power of community. This was my first talk ever so I was an important experience for me.

I talked about the contribution workflow. Since this could be a bit confused for incoming people It’s cool to add this topic.  Workflow, and conventions are still an issue for me in such a bit community, but luckily it’s easy to find help.

Slides Argconf here

2. LinuxChixArg meetup

The most shocking of the meetup was that @stringarray an ex-outreachy intern attended!! She join us and talked about her experience working with Gnome 6 years ago.

We gave an especial place to Outreachy this time, talking about our experiences and time working on the internship. I hope attends enjoyed the meet as much as I did. We try to share of motivation with FOSS every day.


@cynpy shared our next events project: PyCon Argentina.


Something else?


I also join #OutreachyChat to advice applicants for the incoming round of Outreachy 😀


What’s next?

I’ll attend to OpenStack Summit Barcelona (24th-29th October)!! I can’t wait for it.

I ‘ll also attend to PyCon Ireland!


The first week is over!

I’ve finished my first week as an Outreachy intern yesterday. Cinder is getting most interesting every time. Installing Devstack for Cinder and Ceph is a bit tricky. It took me long time to have my env working,but it’s done by now (I have to blog about it).

I’m learning about all Cinder and Ceph stuff (I have to blog about it, too). I’m creating volumes, pools and snapshots. I have some questions about rbd and RADOS, but i’m working on it. Tomorrow I have a call with my mentor, Jon, so lucky me.

To refrest some python ideas i downloaded ‘learn python’ app from my android. It’s a funny way to review concepts when i’m on the bus or in my place.

I’m a happy LinuxChix Argentina member since this year.This month we participated in FliSoL Buenos Aires! It was my first public contribution with LinuxChix and I have to work in my public speech hahah, but It was great!

Micabot gave a Introduction to Bash workshop! Saddely, I couldn’t attend I had an exam at workshop’s time.


You can join us or/and talk to us at IRC on Freenode in #LinuxChixAr channel. We talk about geek stuff. We also meet twice a week and drink beers.

Finally, I hope to post soon.

Bye Bye
