Outreachy: Week 3

Everybody Struggles

Hi, again! Thanks for dropping by! :D

“Strength and growth come only through continuous effort and struggle.” — Napoleon Hill

The struggle is unavoidable.

The struggle is the natural state of affairs and everybody struggles. I never thought I would be able to switch my stream from civil engineering to computer science. I always thought I will not be able to handle these two completely different streams, but look here I am.

I am in week 3 of my internship and till now I've been learning new things every day. Personally, communicating and expressing my thought is very hard for me. I have been practising to be more expressive about my thoughts and work with every conversation and meeting I have with my mentor.

Talking about work, my work is to add wireguard support for Nmstate and there were many challenges like learning how to write YAML files and how YAML files work. I also learnt about the network manager. The most interesting new thing that I learnt is how to write unit tests in python. I was supposed to write a test for wireguard schema.

It’s quite thrilling to be working in an environment where there are many new, interesting things to be learnt. Looking forward to learning more amazing things. :D
