Happiness Packets and Fedora GSoC 2018

I was selected to work with Fedora on the Fedora Happiness Packets for GSoC 2018! A shout-out to Jona and Bee for helping me with the proposal and initial PRs!

About me

Hi there! My name is Anna. I go by the username Algogator on IRC and elsewhere.

  • I study computer science at the University of Texas at Arlington.
  • Python is my favorite language. Been using it for everything for the past 6 years.
  • Huge open source fan. I started a Firefox club at my university. Currently president of the Python user group at UTA (PyMavs).

What I’ll be working on and why

The Happiness Packets is an open source platform to spread gratitude and appreciation among contributors in the community. For Fedora Appreciation Week 2018, having a Fedora themed Happiness Packets site will encourage and make it easier for people to send positive feedback to their peers (anonymously if they like). I’ll be mainly working on integrating fedmsg (to award a Fedora Badge for sending a message) and adding authentication (for FAS) to the Django project.
