A Month and Three Days More

Hi all ๐Ÿ™‚

There was no reason for the break i took this time except one – i was a little busy with the summer training and returning back to college.
Yes , finally the “Happy Days” i was leading are over as college came back into being. The fruitful days are up ๐Ÿ˜ฆ and yes and yes that is saddest part till now.

As i discontinued writing up , i couldn’tย  fully share things bout the summer training.
The topics covered after the last day were productive enough and included sessions of topics i never had quite a knowledge of.. Well , i would say i am still working on them.

DAY 7th – DAY 8th — 8th July’15 & 10th July ’15

The next sessions consisted of Version Control System.. basically Mercurial and Git.
We were given proper hands-on session to know about them and it was very properly explained as well
( I shall ( though not very soon ) ) would provide blogs on all i know about VCS as i have yet to learn a few more things.

DAY 9th – DAY 10th — 13th July’15 , 15th July’ 15 & 17th July’ 15

After VCS , Sayan and rtnpro ( their IRC nicks ) gave us details about how to create web pages.. It wont be quite tough to catch that the topics covered were – HTML and CSS.
The third was about CSS properties.
We came to know about a lot of properties used in CSS ( shall provide a blog on this too ๐Ÿ™‚ )
The sessions were fun and we were stuffed with all the basics of the above two ๐Ÿ™‚
We successfully created our web page ( which was given as an assignment )

DAY 11th – Day 12th — 20st July’ 15 & 22nd July ‘ 15

And the most awaited , ” python” was finally introduced amongst us.
The first was just an hour session and contained onlyย  few basics. The second day of python contained about – Functions , Modules and Looping.
Most of which i knew about and also we were given two codes to write during the session itself ๐Ÿ™‚

P.S – Happy Days are yet alive as long as there is something so much exciting happening along !

Days on #dgplug

Hello again ๐Ÿ™‚

Yes , i took a break again ( for a week this time )
Now that it is all about the summer training and three more days were very well spent on #dgplug channel

DAY 3 – 24th June 2015

As in our last session we were given links aboutย  FHS – File Hierarchy Standards.
So , today was all about the queries we had with the links provided with Kushal da answering each oneย  of us ๐Ÿ™‚
Came to know about many things , i had sparse or i can NO knowledge of !!

DAY 4 – 30th June 2015

Admist of these days , we were sent links to study about our next topic , that was about VI/VIM editor.
Vi or Vim – is simply a text editor that allows us to edit someย  file.
Here are few links to that were given to us to know about vim —

All Vi asks for is practice as there are plenty of commands to keep tracks of.
Today , was all about the questions we had about VIM.
The widely asked question being – ” Why do we use VIM over other editors ? ”
A nice question indeed with lots of interesting answers as well ๐Ÿ™‚
At last . we were served – http://dgplug.org/irclogs/2012/rst-primer/ย  to read for our next class,


4th July 2015 – Late Evening

After i went through the link , had an anxiety to create the same ๐Ÿ˜›
Well , it didn’t took a long but i made an html file exactly same as the above link ๐Ÿ™‚ with “test.rst” as my vi file and “test.html” as my presentation slide.
Had Questions aboutย  – Literal Blocks , Ordered lists , Sections and many more. Few of which were cleared my google andย  few by IRC members and the left ones , by Kushal Da ๐Ÿ™‚

*Note – rst2s5 made the rst htmlย  file that way , rst2html didn’tย  ( wondering what i wrote ? Won’t be a lot of trouble to google about “s5” )

DAY 5ย  – 2nd July 2015

Finally , the little doubts were swept off.
I don’t know what i am supposed to do for my next class ๐Ÿ˜› Well , there is a lot to kearn ๐Ÿ™‚
and yes , we were asked to give our feedback on the sessions being held ( Words won’t be enough to say how beneficial they are to anyone who wants to ” LEARN ”
Downloaded “asciinem” as told ( yet to google about it ) and mysql too !

P.Sย  – I wish i could stay on IRC the whole day.. and yes , i am Learning ๐Ÿ™‚

The Summer Training – 2015

Ahhhh ,ย  this is exciting.
Frankly Speaking , usually at the beginning when i was completely new to the FOSS world and just began my learning , i was often said by Kushal Da to go through the previous years ” IRC logs ” and i followed it too. I saw the conversations there ( some were too funny ๐Ÿ˜€ ) , people helping each other , pulling each other’s leg and what not. Saw the heading stated as , SUMMER TRAINING. Though , had no idea what it was ( at that time ) and later when i got puffed up with everything , i came to know what ” summer training ” actually was.
Since then , wanted to be a part of it , wanted to see those things exactly happening as it was there in the ” IRC logs ”
Well , the time came.

DAY – 1

20th June ‘ 15 – The 8th session of the summer training and yes, i am a proud part of it ๐Ÿ™‚
I was excited since morning , logged into IRC ( Which i usually do ) but today it was the other part of my exciting world.
Spent my entire day reading the last year’s IRC logs.. ( and trust me, it benefits a lot )
Later at 18:30 P.M ( according to the IST ) , was when Kushal Da showed up. There were other volunteers too , including Chandan Kumar , Devyani Di , Sayan Choudhary and many others i am yet to know about ๐Ÿ™‚
I was not new , so was having my part of fun ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  Seeing everyone talking , asking their questions ( of which , i knew answers already ) , Learning a few things i had no idea of.
and the best part was , Kushal Da answering everyone so patiently ๐Ÿ™‚ I just had my fingers crossed ( if you know what i mean ๐Ÿ˜‰ )
There were around 130 users in all , which was a fascinating thing to see. It is nice to know there are other people who can crave so much in for learning.
Today , it was an introduction class and a question and answer session was held then after.
We were given a few links –
