Over the past few months, I have been working on learning about different protocols and about their implementation. I understand the concept of HTTP/2 and I have a basic understanding of its implementation. I would like to be a part of the SAoC program and help dlang community in implementing the protocol in D.

Sounds great!

Few of my concerns are:

* I have never used D in my career yet, will that be an issue for me?

It is not an automatic disqualifier. The background of each applicant will be weighed during the evaluation of the applications, and part of that includes past programming experience. So it will be a factor, but it alone won't kill your chances. Anyone with a strong background in C or C++ should be able to pick up D easily enough and should be able to overcome most issues with the help of the mentor and the forums.

More important are the quality of your proposal and if you can show projects you have completed in the past.

* I haven't contributed to the dlang community yet. Will that be a decisive factor for this program?

Not at all. We are eager to welcome new users to the community as part of SAoC.

Please submit your application to us before the deadline!
