Thanks to the Student President of the School of Electric Engineering, Yelstin Soltelo, we were able to celebrated our third session as it was planned in the Wiki.
This time we have started with the online support of Carlos Soriano with his newcomer talk to clone a GNOME project using Builder. First we needed to the check the version of Flatpak (>0.9.25) followed by downloading the Builder software. After that, we did clone GNOME To Do, and we were waiting for the installation of Sdk. It was taking so long because we had a bandwith speed of the 80’s. Meanwhile, Carlos was explaining the tools GNOME offer in the developed center Website, and the initiatives and to do list the some GNOME applications have in GitLab. Thanks so much Carlos Soriano!
Java Script was the language of this session and Gerson Garrido was in charge of the workshop. He helped us with the sintaxis, checking what GNOME projects with gjs to finally set the challenge of the day. Here you can see his material and his GIT experience.
The students that are currently attending this iniatiative are from UNI, UNMSM, UPIG and UNTELS. Most universities at this time are running final quizzes and exams for the end of semester, their effort are double and that is what GSoC students around the world (with no summer time) face during the program.
I want to thanks again to GNOME, Fedora and the Linux Foundation again to help us in promoting the GSoC program in Lima, Peru. Thanks to this experience, I have met talent students that balancing jobs, university, family, thesis toward this challenge.
In the picture below, you can see from left to the right: Solanch from UPIG and Fiorella from UNMSM, those women students have been attended to the three sessions and Fiorella is one of the top students that accomplish most of the tasks, challenges and documentation of each session. Cristian Sotomayor, who is the youngest of the group with 18 and he is also one of the top students in this group, he is from UNTELS. Finally, from UNI: Franz and Johan who were the winners of the challenge GJS. GIT: Franz and Johan.The performance of our students are being measured based on the documentation of the sessions, minichallenges, homework and miniquizzes. Our top three: Franz as asd, Fiorella as aweba and Johan Veramendi as jrvel. Those who accomplish all the challenges will be prized thanks to the sponsorship of the Linux Foundation.
