Mozilla, Outreachy


I’m a junior year pursuing a B.E. in Computer Engineering at the University of Delhi, India. I was a round 13 Outreachy (the successor of the Outreach Program for Women (OPW)) intern with Mozilla. Being an ardent open source enthusiast, I have contributed to Kinto – a minimalist JSON storage service, Brackets -a code editor by Adobe, todoman – a CLI based todo manager, crashsimilarity – a crash clustering tool for Bugzilla and also have a string of self-projects that I’m proudly maintaining.

As part of my Outreachy internship, I have developed a PubSub channels based push notification service, WebPush Channels. I have spoken in the python devroom at FOSDEM 2017. I have also been the lead web developer at Clado – an online rental company. I am a Web Developer working with the various societies of my college. As part of my role for one of the societies, I’m also mentoring a group pf juniors and colleagues and helping them venture into the field of web devlopment and open source development. I’m a person with a strong belief that knowledge increases by sharing, and what better platform than Open Source Bridge to grasp the immense ocean of the knowledge that everyone attending the event will bring along while I also get to share my little nibbles of knowledge and experience.

I'll first talk about what Kinto is, followed by a details of how webpush works. I'll wrap it up by explaining how webpush can be integrated into apps using simple http calls.
