ToriOS Internship Program – version 1.0

  • We need people who enjoy #programming and want to do it for fun, to create really nice small things that can be used easily by almost anyone.
  • All levels of programming are fine.
  • People need to have #motivation to do this because they want to, themselves. They need motivation to learn more because they are growing.
  • They must have the ability to #fail and #learn from it.
  • As long as those exist, #skills will come. Anything anyone already has to begin with is fine.
  • Rust, serde, FLTK, DBus, X11/etc, XDG, lexer, TUI, Linux, Every Window Manager there is, Rust coreutils/chroot/squashfs?/etc for building, TOML/JSON/INI/etc, HIG/UI/UX accessibility, Bash scripting.

Goals:

1- Oxidize the C++ programs used in ToriOS, and improve them. 2- Oxidize the scripted builds. 3- Oxidize the scripts used in ToriOS, and use serde for configuration, support multiple formats in and out. 4- Build separate libraries for separate tasks. Many small libraries that can be reused are better than one big one for everything. 5- Bring these components together and create a desktop environment using any window manager. 6- Replace GNU with Rust equivalents to make Oxidized Linux as the base of the operating system. 7- Configure multiple window managers using the same graphical tool, allowing for the conversion of one window manager format to another, seamlessly. 8- build menus for window managers with an oxidized menu generator. 9- Oxidize FLTK applications menu program. 10- Make portrait and landscape layouts for the desktop. Using dbus to load things when needed.


Longer term wish list goals:

1- Rust + FLTK to create a modern panel/tray system. 2- Handle the virtual desktops, use ~/Desktop.d/... for handling multiple desktops with multiple icon layouts. Just a desktop manager, not a file manager. 3- Build our design of a very modular onscreen keyboard. 4- Make all GUI apps display a TUI when no $DISPLAY exists. 5- Volume manager to trigger whatever events are configured. 6- Pre-built Phone images to flash as well as ISOs to download. 7- replace any GTK specific programs with Rust + FLTK versions. 8- use a native Rust GUI toolkit when one is mature enough.


Note:

The word [#Oxidize] is used to mean converting an older program to use Rust, instead of whatever programming language it was originally written in.

How to Find and Apply to Industry Roles

So I recently attended the Scismic [1] webinar on How to Find and Apply to Industry Roles This follows on from last months webinar.

Some really useful tips here on what to look for, how to match skills to roles, how to emphasise your skills / experience / expertise to the job description. Different skills and types of roles between academic and industry experience and how you add these to your CV to gain the attention of the Hiring manager.

A really good webinar. I am adapting my notes as I am not looking at working in Biotech, nevertheless the idea of the informational interview could be really useful going forward.

If you are looking for a job in Biotech. I would recommend reaching out to Erin at Scismic and seeing how they can help. They are a job matching service, so they can take your skills etc and match to possible vacancies.

Informational Interviews

So I recently attended the Scismic webinar on Informational Interviews. This follows on from the 'A summary of you' webinar from 7th May.

The webinar included an explanation on what an informational interview is, the purpose. preparation and how to go about setting on up. The difference between this and a formal interview process and the fact these interviews are about finding out about roles and not about asking for a job.

Some excellent tips were on the sort of questions to ask, the type of questions can be put in to four categories.

A really good webinar. I am adapting my notes as I am not looking at working in Biotech, nevertheless the idea of the informational interview could be really useful going forward.

Avoiding Interview mistakes

Last night, I attended a webinar on avoiding interview mistakes. This was presented by Scismic [1], who specialise in Biotechnology. However the tips and advice given are applicable across a wide range of industries.

This was really good, and lots of really useful advice which I will be using going forward in my job search.

As I first learned about Scismic, from a CV webinar, they presented in collaboration with Overleaf. I have included a link to the Overleaf webinar page. It should be possible to view a recording of this.
