Issues Suggestion Requested

Hello Everyone,:wave:

My name is Saarthak Maini. I have been contributing to Open Source and Learning In Public for about 2 years. I would like to start contributing to Django. I would also like to participate in the upcoming Google Summer Of Code Program and other related events.

As stated, in the pinned post, I have

  • Gone through the Tutorials
  • Set up Django on my Local System and Played around with the Unit Tests
  • Read the “Advice for New Contributors Guide”

I’m currently going through the tickets and other documentation to get involved.
I would like to request suggestion of any issue which I could get started with and contribute to ? Any other steps which I could take to get involved?

I am good with Python, SQL , HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Decent with Django. Willing to put in the hardwork and learn on the go.

Also, are there any community meetings which I could join ?

Thank you! :grin:

A helpful thing you could start with is reproducing errors and checking for ticket statuses. You can find more information on triaging activities here: Triaging tickets | Django documentation | Django

I’m not aware of dedicated meetings for contributors, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t interest. If you’d like to set up a recurring block of time on the Django discord server for others to join you in contributing, I can help with that.

I think an excellent way is to find tickets that has “needs documentation” , “patch needs improvement” set in the trac and then further filter it on the area of Django you want to contribute or feel comfortable with.
