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.
Few of my concerns are:
* I have never used D in my career yet, will that be an issue
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!
