Julita Inca Chiroque: Exam Results and Pass List #PeruRumboGSoC2018

Early this morning, students from different universities of Lima, Peru came to UNI to take an exam to prove their knowledge of programming and GNU/Linux.

52 were registered in the previuos days and I started to look for a lab with 50 Linux manchines which was actually very challenging. Then, we decided to just have two classrooms and take a written exam where we could see the skill level growth related to programming on Linux. Only 17 showed up ((maybe the Peruvian soccer match from last night that determined if we would go to the World Cup was the reason why it was so hard for them to wake up early).

According to our plan, we are looking for students that are almost ready for the GSoC, because we are aware that six Sundays will not be enough to master these subjects: C, python, JavaScript, Node JS, Linux, GIT and documentation. We also noticed that people who manage these skills, in advance are working and are not enrolled in university or are retired, or simply they want their Sundays to rest.

However, there are interested students that might not have the same skills as intermediate or advanced level in programming on Linux. That is why we consider important to have a general view of the new group throughout the exam, so they can compare their academic achievements at the end of the instructional period. 

This is the first step to make our student more confident to apply next April 2018 to the GSoC program. Our main objetive in this phase is to build a good GITHub profile with blogs with content related to programming on Linux.

Thanks for the support of Linux Foundation, they are going to support us with $500 in course for each participant who finish this program successfully. The only way to prove this is by documentation (Git / blog) of each session. Glad to have more women involved.

Tomorrow our sessions are going to start at UIGV. We have authorization from 10 am to 4pm, I am going to use two hours to ensure they accomplish their documentation until 6pm.

The list of the participants who pass is only a reference, we are going to help them with food. But we are not restricting any student who wants to learn with us. So anyone can jois us, the pace will be according basically on the level of the first 12 top student. Also, a constantly evaluation every session will let us decide who is going to receive the swearthirts from the Linux Foundation.   

Thank so much LinuXatUNI, trainers and all people who help us as a local group.
