Stepping out of Fedora: May to August 2018

Similar to last year, I am putting forward a note of planned absence from the Fedora Project community from May to August 2018.

Transparency is important to me. I wanted to make this announcement ahead of time to set clear expectations for the upcoming months. I am returning to Chicago, IL to work another internship at Jump Trading, LLC. From June to August, I am working at their Chicago office. I am excited to return and learn more from an amazing team of people.

I am not blocked by company policy from contributing to open source, so I won’t disappear completely. However, while I am still able to contribute to Fedora, I do not expect to keep up the level of activity that I contribute at now during my internship.

Away from May to August 2018

May is filled with other personal commitments, followed by a near immediate departure to Chicago in early June. Thus, I am stepping out of Fedora in early May. I hope to spend time with friends and family before departing for Chicago, so my estimate is a little generous to the benefit of being realistic. My internship ends around mid-August, so I hope to begin my normal levels of contribution around this time.

The only area I hope to stay partially active with is the Fedora Community Blog to continue my post as the editor-in-chief. While I still don’t expect being fully involved, I hope to help with editing and keeping things moving.

I’m looking forward to seeing familiar faces again in August at Flock 2018!
