I can eat more 😹

I completed the second week of my internship at Cloud Native Computing Foundation with Thanos under the mentorship of Bartek Plotka and Povilas Versockas 🤗 💜


It was again full week of learning new stuff. At the beginning of 2020, I wrote my goals for this year, out of which getting healthier, taking care of my own self is one of the goal I want to achieve. For the major part of my day, I keep sitting on my chair, and even skip meals just because i don’t want to get out of it. I am happy to share that I am working on this and hopefully, this will go a long way 🏃🏻‍♀️

I had the weekly sync up meeting with my mentors, Bartek Plotka and Povilas Versockas, where we discussed about the raw documentation I prepared on “Downsampling and unlimited metric retention” which was really vague. I spent most of my second week in reading Thanos documentation, blog posts, finding all possible user cases that are necessary for the tutorial. Get to know more about Thanos, a set of components to make our Prometheus deployments a long-term TSDB solution with Highly Available setup. Thanos has greatly enriched the metrics system, providing users with a single centralized query pane and a long term data storage, whilst making our Prometheus stack scalable and highly available! I am updating everything in GitHub as draft, you can view the pull request here. Delivered 5 min short talk in our Mentees Hangout Meet, last Friday 😻💙. Apart from that, I got my first pull request merged 😍 (although, it was a small fix 😛).


I managed to send 3 pull requests this week, out of which I need to update the two pull requests 👩🏻‍💻. I am very good at breaking things ䷪


  1. Work on the pending pull requests. I am making changes in accordance with mentor’s review, on a rolling basis.
  2. Focus more on the tutorial work and additionally, convert the draft into more of a tutorial (send good wishes to me🤞🏻).

Before signing up, a huge shout to my co-mentees, Harshitha Chowdary Thota, Uche Obasi, Yash Sharma, Prem Kumar, for being so amazing and supportive ❤️🔥

Signing off for today, until next week 👻
