I am a Fedora contributor ( ambassador, packager). I am also an upstream contributor to the Transifex project. Currently I am working as an intern at Indifex on the Transifex project. I have been working on multiple things for Transifex : bug fixing, testing, some front-end stuff, backend, api, etc.
I will be giving a talk on the Transifex project to make people aware how Transifex is playing an important role in software localization and internationalization, talk about features of Transifex and how to contribute to Transifex.
I will also be giving a talk on Django testing and code coverage based on the experience I gained working for Transifex.
Not just talks, I am also going to conduct a Hack Fest on Django testing with Transifex. Transifex is a very successful open source Django product. I think it will be great to have hands on experience on testing a real world Django product. We will be writing new test cases, increase code coverage and if possible find loopholes in the existing Transifex code and fix them.
