My name is Chaofeng (Chao) Zhou, a Computer Science student at the University of Utah. I am also a Web Developer who is passionate about Web Development. I have been using React and Node.js to build several projects so far and I have solid understanding of HTML/CSS as well. I participated in GSoC with Team Java Pathfinder last year. This year I am looking for a team and project that are specific to web development. I have viewed the ideas list of Plone and I believe Plone will be the project that I want to work on. :slight_smile: My portfolio site can be reached at

I am Shivam Luthra, a sophomore from India, perceiving web skills like HTML5, CSS 3, JavaScript & it's frameworks like AngularJS and libraries like Jquery, looking forward to connect to this community and start my contributing experience. I know I might be late introducing myself to the community but aspiring to contribute towards it. I've also seen this year's GSoC project ideas page and many of them pretty much appeal to me. Please guide me how to get started from scratch.
Thanks & Regards.

Thanks! :slight_smile:

Welcome to the Plone community, @shivamluthra and @bringtree. We are glad you are interested in working with us for your GSoC. For both of you, the best way to get started is to download and explore Plone (linked at the top of this post), read the documentation on how it works, and how to work with it (also linked above), and explore the ideas in our ideas page. If you want to get a start on understanding Plone better, you can find a link at the top to some issues in GitHub that we've marked as appropriate for beginners. There is also good documentation linked above on how to contribute.

As you develop specific questions, please feel free to ask them in posts to this forum. If they are related to any of the ideas in our list, you can @-mention any of the mentors here and they will see your messages. Do keep in mind that we are mostly working folk and it may take a short while for us to respond to your questions.

Thanks so much for looking into working with Plone. We look forward to seeing your proposal rough drafts starting March 20.


thanks @。@
