As part of the Outreach Internship program moja global is welcoming two new interns to support our mission in developing open-source Monitoring, Reporting and Verifying (MRV) software for the forestry, agriculture and other land use (AFOLU) sector. Outreachy provides paid, remote internships to support people underrepresented in the open-source technology community to diversify the sector.
Take a moment to learn more about our interns Debolina and Sree and read more about their experience and expected contributions to moja global.
I am Debolina Ghatuary pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the National Institute of Technology, Agartala, India. I started out with Competitive Programming mostly in C++ and looking for projects where I could learn the intricacies of this sophisticated language. I came across Outreachy through coding groups in college and I decided to try open-source in parallel to brushing up my skills as it would be the best place to get hands-on experience with projects that required real-life problem-solving skills and to convert this code into deployable software. I have high hopes that this opportunity offered to me by Outreachy will help me in understanding the type of team or organization that I’d like to join in the future and how my range of skills can be the most beneficial. I am very grateful and looking forward to Moja-Global being the kickstart to my open source journey.
I am Sree Vidhya, a CS undergraduate from India. I am an open-source enthusiast. I am currently in my second year of university studies. I have experience in working on various real-world projects. Outreachy is an amazing opportunity for any individual who wants to involve in open source. I came to know about Moja Global while I was going through the list of projects. Fortunately, my skill set matched the requirements for the project. After joining the slack community, I got familiar with what Moja does. I also realized the community here is very helpful. They are always motivating and encouraging the interest in the newly joined people. During the course of the contribution period, I felt like a part of the community. I hope to continue my journey in the coming weeks with more involvement and enthusiasm and contribute more to this organization. I would work with my full potential to complete the project in the given time. I hope my work would help to make progress in the existing codebase. I will continue to be part of this amazing community and will be always ready to contribute more.
