Dear Django developers, I want to ask why there were no django projects for GSoC 2018? Furthermore, are there any potential mentors for this year's Google Summer of Code that I can have a conversation with as I want to get more clarity on the application process for Django and talk to them

Why do you consider is as not a good idea ? I'm really, I say really interested in working with this organisation during this GSoC. How can we have a prior experience contributing from django if we don't start someday ? On Sunday, 25 March 2018 02:57:57 UTC+1, Tim Graham wrote: > > Hi, I don't

Hi, I don't think this idea is suitable and as the proposal deadline is two days away, I don't think you'll be able to develop a successful proposal so late in the process. As https://code.djangoproject.com/wiki/SummerOfCode2018 says, you should have some prior experience contributing to
