Hi everyone! I am Dinithi. I recently graduated from University of Colombo with a degree in Computer Science. Right after graduation, I applied and got selected for an Outreachy internship. Outreachy is a three-month paid internship that runs twice a year where participants contribute to free and open-source software projects. The internships take place in May and December, and I was selected for the May 2021 cohort. For my Outreachy internship, I will be working with Common Workflow Language. In this blog, I will be sharing my experience of the Outreachy internship.
