During the summer of 2020, I had the opportunity to work on the Guix Data Service as an Outreachy intern under the mentorship of Christopher Baines. The internship project was aimed at improving the internationalization support for the Guix Data Service and thus providing non-English speaking users a more feasible way of interacting with Guix data.
In this talk, I will walk you through my experience of working on the Guix Data Service, how it helped me grow both professionally and personally, and I will also provide my suggestions for other potential interns or contributors.
