[GSoC 2016] Project, ready to work, but where to start?

Hi! :slight_smile: I am Lera and I am a second year student, major in Natural language processing.
I am very interested in a project "Python3.5 support". Could you please tell me more about it? What skills are required? I would like to have a look at what a student is supposed to do

Thanks in advance!

For this project you'll need good Python skills as well as experience with Python 3. A proper understanding of unicode and text encoding would be invaluable. Knowledge of parsers and ASTs are a definite plus.

Thanks! Should I do any coding challenge?

In terms of coding challenge, I recommend that you familiarize yourself with Plone by attempting to fix one of the bugs listed here: https://github.com/plone/Products.CMFPlone/issues
I've created notes on bug fixing here:
