OSD is a "Open Source Development" course I am taking. Part of that course Is to make a blog that will allow one to better connect with opensource community. My first self-reflective post called Becoming a Developer had 17. It is getting viral!
Now, to the lab1
Step 1. Networking on Slack
I was quite active on a slack, but then I made my request too detailed. Here how it looked like:
Hi all, I am looking for Lab1 partner. Ping me if following is ok for you:
-I can review code in Python, C++
-I probably can review C#, Java, Rust, Bash
-you don't mind reviewing Python code.
-you plan to do lab 1 close to the deadline
And... No one replied in the thread. Perhaps I went too detailed with my request. Or maybe defused responsibility did not allow anyone to respond to person looking for a partner. I figured others were trying to find their partners somewhere in private messages, not that much on public space.
So I had to message one last person, who seemed to be looking for a partner on the morning of the deadline. Guess what language did I ended up reviewing?
Step 3. Review and File Issues
I used GitHub web interface to file Issues. Since by the time I had submit this lab, the code was not fully running, I filed one most obvious issue.
Step 4. Have Your Project Reviewed and Tested
I got 5 issues. But my code was not yet fully running as well (of course! starting that late).
Step 5. Fix Your Issues
I am fixing them a little by little. Hey, my code runs now! And I got few more issues from other partner to fix.
Step 6. Blog About the Process and Outcomes
Here we are! By the way, it took me 1h, 20m to wright this post. I am 20 minutes behind my schedule.
