Hello everyone, I am Manish, I am in 2nd year at Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra, computer science branch. I have worked with python, java, nodejs and mongodb. I am very much interested in Gsoc'18. I really am very much interested in working with plone and learning from excellent peer group here at plone. I have been reading chats here at forum. I have installed plone 5.0 on ubuntu 16.04 and familiarised myself with plone environment. I am now working on making a website using plone. I will keep updating my progress. Please welcome me in my first endeavour to open source community.

Welcome, @Zematacqy !
Keep going on and in case you got stuck anywhere, please post it here.

I am Adithya Kumar, 3rd year student IIT Palakkad, India. I have worked with a lot of web development tools such as Reactjs, Webpack, elm (amazing thing :slight_smile:) etc. I am a decent coder and like coding in elixir, python, Haskell, JavaScript etc. It would be a great learning experience for me to contribute to Plone. Am currently following the steps mentioned :slight_smile:


Welcome @adithya Adi

That's great, do let us know if you need help with anything.
And of course, welcome to the community!

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:

Thank you Sir, I am on it.

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.

Keep going on and in case you got stuck anywhere, please post it here.

Again, Welcome!

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
