认识一个维护者。Naveen Srinivasan,软件工程师,Endor实验室

通过 11月 9, 2022博客

维护者在OpenSSF和Linux基金会中起着至关重要的作用,我们认为你应该有机会认识一些为开源软件(OSS)安全计划提供动力的了不起的人。在接下来的几周里,我们将介绍维护者和贡献者,听听他们是如何来到这个社区的,他们的经历是怎样的,以及他们对其他人有什么建议。

Meet Naveen Srinivasan, Software Engineer, Endor Labs

Naveen Srinivasan is a software engineer at Endor Labs. He was awarded the Google Open Source Peer Bonus Award in 2021 and 2022 for his contributions to Open Source Software (OSS). He maintains a few OSS projects. 

你是如何参与OpenSSF的? 

I am a contributor and maintainer across a few OpenSSF projects including 记分卡. I am speaking at the Linux Foundation Member Summit this week on Do You Know the Health of Your OSS Dependencies?

你为什么选择参与其中?

I strongly believe in security and privacy. Blindly trusting external OSS software was always an issue for me. I have read the paper “Reflections on Trusting Trust” and in Dec 2020, during my winter break, I read a blog post from Kim Lewandowski on Scorecards and how Envoy is using it to secure the supply chain which lead me to my first PR in scorecard.

告诉我们你作为维护者的经验。 

I actively contribute to several OpenSSF Projects. Without the OpenSSF community’s support and welcome, I couldn’t have done it. 阿比谢克-阿里亚(Abhishek Arya丹-洛伦克 invited me to become a maintainer after a few contributions. That led me to contribute a lot to OpenSSF. A welcoming community is essential.

为什么成为一名维护者很重要? 

Contributing to open-source projects helps me learn new technology and ideas. The diversity in OSS helps a lot because everyone has similar intentions.

你的教育和/或职业生涯是如何引导你来到这里的?

I learned to code as part of my education. I borrowed coding tools and combined them with my love for software security. I always like taking things apart to understand how something works, and I could never trust software without understanding its origin. So I started digging further into this hole (untrusting soul that I am). When I realized I could work on this in open source, I jumped right in. I have loved being part of this community ever since.

是什么让你在做维护者的时候有收获?

I love the green squares that show on my GitHub contributions page.

Naveen Srinivasan你对其他人有什么建议?

Most projects welcome contributions of tests. That’s usually the best way to start. Everyone should feel free to ask questions.

告诉我们一些关于你自己的有趣事情。

I recently visited the Big Island, Hawaii, and trekked through Pololū valley. The coconut trees on the Island reminded me of my youth. Fun fact: I grew up in a coastal city and used to climb coconut trees as a teenager. I love to read, and my Twitter stream is usually about the books I read.
