Introduce yourselves here!

Hi Sophia!

We’re busier this week due to SuriCon, but we’ve noticed that the other applicants did a great job in welcoming you around.

On top of that, we are still keeping an eye on the forum and redmine, so please feel comfortable in reaching out to ask questions or ask to claim tickets.

Happy contribution phase!

Hello everyone!

:wave:t5: I am Joana
:woman:t5: Pronouns: She/Her
:timer_clock: Timezone: UTC-3/Brasília
:brazil: I am from Salvador/Bahia/Brazil
:open_file_folder: In the past, I have worked on projects with Python, Django, C#, DotNet and React.
:heartpulse: I love makeup, dragqueens, books and skateboarding
:dog: I have two puppies called Pipoca (Popcorn) and Algodão Doce (Cottoncandy)
:books: I am really interested in topics like digital security, criptography, data privacy, programming, sysadmin, and how to apply this knowledge for social causes.
:crab: I want to apply for outreachy but I would love to become a long-term volunteer for the community.

Can any of you help me choose a first issue to start with? @sbhardwaj @jufajardini @vjulien


Hi Joana!

Welcome to our community! :slight_smile:

Our projects page on the Outreachy site suggests a good approach to picking your first issue with Suricata, in case you are new to the project: check available good first issues.
These were planned to work as onboarding tasks, while one understands how our contribution process works.

The other suggested issues are the ones with the Outreachy label. The ones for converting our C unittests to the FAIL/PASS API may work as a good first issue, as well, if you feel comfortable with C and git.

Before you work on any issue, you’ll need to register on our redmine project, so please do that asap! Then, choose an issue and ask on the ticket itself if you can claim it - that’s the process for everyone, we prefer it to avoid having more than one person unknowingly working on the same issue :stuck_out_tongue:

If you ask to claim a ticket and get no response in the next 8 hours or so, please reach out to me or Shivani in private and share the ticket link: sometimes the redmine notifications don’t reach us…

As you know, this is the very final week in the contribution phase, so I’ll share with you the questions related to the final form: do fill it up, and good luck and lot of focus in these 5 days! :muscle:t4:
