Summer internship wrapup: Ethan Dorta, FSF sysadmin intern

by Ethan Dorta Contributions Published on Aug 17, 2017 11:55 AM
Hi! I'm Ethan, known as Flarp in the IRC rooms at FSF. I was a Free Software Foundation tech team intern in the summer of 2017.

I came here to work on LibreJS, and made a demo for the new version that uses WebExtensions instead of the now deprecated XUL extensions. I also worked for a short time on the linting program JSHint to help remove proprietary code. I hope I will be able to continue helping out with this in the future.

I have learned a lot while working with FSF. I am enthusiastic about software freedom, so being able to work with the leading example of this movement was an honor. I learned new technologies and met new people. While my internship was remote, I actually visited the office while I was visiting Rhode Island. I am thrilled I got this opportunity, and would love to come back after high school or college to do more with the FSF.
