Information for Interested GSoC Students

Does anybody know how to check the changes I made in the code of the following repository.
I mean how do I run this repository's code?

Usually you wouldn't modify the code in that repository. Plone is comprised of many packages, so code changes would be made in those. You can find out more how to make core changes to Plone here:

Welcome @iamar7 .
As you are done with basics of plone, Now, pop over to the ideas page and see if you spot anything that interests you. We are also open to thoughtful proposals for your own ideas, so don’t be shy.

Greetings, @iamar7! Welcome to the Plone community! Hope all is going well for you.

As you begin looking at Plone issues in our issue tracker and working on solving your first bugs, please do ask your questions here in this forum. A few words of advice on that.

First, search the forum to see if anyone else has asked your question before. In many cases you'll find that someone has. Second, keep to one topic per post. It is tempting to keep a conversation going once you have one started, but it is much easier to find answers to our questions if each topic is on its own thread.

Thanks very much for your interest in Plone. We appreciate your time and attention, and are happy to help you in any way we can

I am Maitreya Sonawane, sophomore studying Electrical Engineering as a major at Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur. I have recently developed interest in Web Development and Design. Learning about this organisation, i found this system of Plone quiet interesting. Viewing Idealist one topic that caught my attention was of Editor Improvements - Creating anchors is really good idea to interconnect documents and make it easily accessible. Need to find new position for editing bar is indeed a nice idea.
Due to my Mid Semester Examinations and following illness costed me some time to start, but now I am ready to dedicate as much time as possible and continue exploring plone community and working on project. Hope it goes well.

Welcome to the Plone community! We are glad you've chosen to take a look at our software for your GSoC experience. Please take the time to read and follow the five steps at the top of this post. As you develop questions about how Plone works, or what it does, or how to work with it, please let us know here in this forum.

A few words of advice. First, you'll get better results if you first search the forum to see if other people have already asked the same question. Many times someone else will have, and you'll save yourself and us some time by following the answers already given. Second, make sure you include as much information as possible in your questions, including what you were trying to do, what you expected to have happen, and what did happen instead. Screen shots are great, as are pasted log files, when appropriate.

Anyway, enough of that. Again, welcome to Plone and let us know how we can help you as you begin learning.

Surely will follow the code! Thanks for these advice's.

My name is Bryce Gallion, and I'm a third year Computer Science and Biochemistry student at the University of Arizona in Tucson. I began my coding journey with intro courses in HTML/CSS/JS, and have recently taken courses in Python, Java, and web development. I am currently working on two personal projects using React.js and Node.js. I enjoy coding in Python as it is very readable and was very beginner friendly in my experience. I look forward to contributing to this open source project!
