You could start from awesome-django but it's a long list and I don't know which of those projects have beginner friendly tickets.

A possible way to narrow down the list is to look at the most popular projects or libraries that have a singular purpose that might be easier to work on.

A couple (active projects) that I picked from Awesome Django:

  • django-rest-framework is the most popular library to build a REST API on top of Django. They have a bunch of open issues and explcitly say the following in their issues page

  • django-q is a simple and cool multiprocess distributed queue for Django that integrates with its admin

None of these are particularly useful teaching projects, but all of my Django projects are open source. Feel free to peruse and ask me any questions!


I've also got a reusable Django app for incorporating Webmention into your Django app: django-webmention


I just started, and will do a series of videos of me doing all the work. however the videos are on Spanish :)


django / django-localflavor

Country-specific Django helpers, formerly of contrib fame


Django's "localflavor" packages offer additional functionality for particular countries or cultures. For example, these might include form fields for your country's postal codes or government ID numbers.

This code used to live in Django proper -- in django.contrib.localflavor -- but was separated into a standalone package in Django 1.5 to keep the framework's core clean.

For a full list of available localflavors, see

django-localflavor can also be found on and installed from the Python Package Index:

Top 5 Soft Skills for Software Engineer

Soft skills are as critical as technical skills for a software engineer. No one works in isolation. Each person has to deal with teammates, colleagues, managers, etc. Therefore team interpersonal skills are essential too. Soft skills include things like good communication, honesty, teamwork, integrity, organization, empathy, etc.
