I really enjoyed my internship of approximately two months. Apart from technical knowledge soft skills such as Team work, Self-Discipline , Time-management and Professionalism were the key skills gained. There was smooth on-boarding process into the internship and very Happy to successfully complete it.

Good experience. Even though in-person would have been a better experience, I thank the FOSSEE team for undertaking the challenges and providing this fellowship virtually. The guidance by mentors was timely and good. I learned new things that I wouldn't have learned while working on personal projects. All in all, it was a nice 6-weeks work experience.

I think the whole work flow was highly professional and systematic. Every thing was informed via Whatsapp Group or Google Groups. This helped revisit information anytime if missed and needed again. The mentors were exceptionally supportive and poise during the whole program and would help solve queries in the best ways they can. They would also provide some challenges on the group, which they were facing. Instead of assigning these challenges to a particular fellow, they would post it on the group. This made sure that any fellow interested/capable can give their ideas/view on solving the problem. I loved solving these challenges a lot. I myself solved few of those challenges. Also, a prior explanation was provided about the tasks assigned to make the task more understandable and easy to view from the consumer perspective. The best part about the fellowship was the coordination of the team. Each fellow would be assigned a task, which would require them to work along with another fellow and work together on the same thing. Making one fellow do some part and another, the other. Also solving problems was provided ease by the peers, many times another fellow would have faced a problem and would help the other on the same. This sped up the development processes saving from long hours of internet probes.Finally I'd like to congratulate the whole FOSSEE team and IIT Bombay on their wonderful program and thank them for providing me with the priviledge of going through this experience even in such tough times, remotely. Thank you

I enjoyed virtual internship. As our country is suffering from pandemic where people are loosing their interns and jobs.I appreciate Fossee to provide internship opportunity. In this project I had no team. This made me realizing the importance of team work. The guidance provided by my mentors helped me to understand concepts , increased my perception level of building and viewing software from scratch. I even lost my focus as I was unable to implement front-end part. My mentors motivated me. My topic was employer recommendation system. I was just having an idea and theoretical knowledge. This intern helped me to implement it .

when I got the FOSSEE fellowship then I really didn't know more about CFD and OpenFOAM, but through the FOSSEE fellowship case study I got a chance to know more about the OpenFOAM & CFD not only CFD &OpenFOAM but also how to write a report and how to present my work through the ppt and the most important thing is the procedure of research. for this purpose, all the three mentors along with the professor and manager are really helpful. without there contribution, I can not learn those things.

My mentors were very welcoming by nature. There's a saying that goes, "The first experience is the best experience", and rightfully so it is and for me it has. Right from the beginning, our project had many issues to work upon and we gave our utmost to get the expected result. To get this done, our mentors constantly supported and cheered us so that we don't lose ourselves down. Initially, we had only learnt the basics of FLOSS to get the fellowship, and once we were through, we saw an ocean of opportunities to work upon with the FLOSS, and we were explained about the everything clearly. Keeping the practical approach in mind, the fellowship was the path where it made us industry-ready. Overall, I would describe my fellowship experience as an enriching and rewarding one.

The overall experience was 8/10. The idea behind the work assigned is extremely helpful for students, and even helps the fellows attain more knowledge and understand how many complex topics can be explained in such a simple manner! The mentors assigned to us: Sharanya Achut and Purusharth Saxena guided us very well, informed us about various sources from where we could gain more knowledge, and helped us continuously for various problems, from setting up Manim, to a lot more! I am grateful for this opportunity and do hope we cross paths again! Thank you.

Over coming challenges were the real privileges as it was remotely conducted fellowship we didn’t had any team based task but this helped us to know our capabilities and accelerated the growth exponentially which greatly aid in my endeavour.It also helped me to understand the very new way of working and being productive. The mentors were really supportive and their belief on us and guidance helped us excel because of which we were able to complete the task on timely manner and produced a quality work.We are greatly indebted to their precious guidance without which it could not be possible. I learned many things during the course of fellowship and motivated towards usability of Free Open Source Software in my case it was Scilab and Xcos. The best part of the fellowship was when we were asked to prove the concept which we applied in our task over large sample set and justify the output. As this shows the commitment of the whole team of which I am glad I could be part of for producing quality work.

I was always keen to be a part of the FOSSEE Summer Fellowship, it allowed me to gain a new skill-set with DevOps and work on several Open-Source projects at the same time. Along with the help to solve problems most efficiently, my mentors always gave me transparent feedback about my work and suggested alternatives to opt for while implementing a new concept which encouraged me to understand as well as explore the topic thoroughly. Apart from quality learning and tracking the progress of intern I loved the culture of maintaining a perfect balance between work and breaks during the fellowship.

In addition to the main task given i also worked on an additional task given by my mentors and am actually happy that i took up that work.I could learn more about the software which i worked and also other programming languages like VHDL to finish my tasks.So the whole experience of learning and implementing to finish our work was great.Our mentors were there helping and clearing our doubts throughout the day.As it was remote fellowship where we had twice or more meetings also in a week where our work would be evaluated and further suggestions would be given.So am very happy and sure that experience and knowledge of hardware language i gained here will help me even after this fellowship.
