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.


Thank you very much for the amazing response Tim and Tushar.

My apologies for the late reply.

I followed the advice, and I’m happy to inform that I’m getting more and more comfortable with the codebase.

Definitely, I would love to interact with contributors and members of the community.

Wednesday or Thursday, 1 hour between 7 PM to 9 PM IST is what I’m comfortable with , for the potential weekly community meetings

Thank you ! :grin:
