Week 1

Published: 06/05/2023

What did I do this week

As I mentioned in my last blog, this week I was focused on completing my first project, "Bootstrap a restore from nothing" for Borgmatic. I had a timeframe of 2 weeks in mind for the project, and I am on the right track currently. The PR only needs a few minor changes and I need to write tests to cover my additions, I hope to get it merged this week.

I also started work on my 2nd project - Improve the Archive tab for Vorta, I broke it down into 5 tasks, and created a PR for the 1st one - https://github.com/borgbase/vorta/pull/1723.
This is a ~50 hour project according to my mentors, I should be able to complete it in 1-2 weeks. I'll try to complete these 5 tasks as soon as possible so that I have time for the "Exclude GUI..." project. Once that gets completed in time, I can keep improving the archive tab if needed.

Did I get stuck somewhere


What's Next

In the coming week, I plan to complete my first project, "Bootstrap a Borgmatic restore from nothing" after writing tests for my changes and getting them merged.

I also plan to work on a few of the tasks listed in Vorta#1723, and start playing around with Borgmatic code for my 3rd project, "Restore a Database to another database name/hostname".

I plan to leave around 5-6 weeks for my last project, "Exclude GUI for Vorta", since I might need more help from my mentors with that one.
