I am wondering to what degree of proficiency in PHP would be expected of us to participate in the projects for this year's GSoC? I am a computer science major but have not dabbled at all in PHP, but I am interested in contributing to Moodle.
To be more specific, if I already have experience in coding (in say, Java) will that be enough to quickly absorb the basics and be eligible to be chosen to take on projects?
Of course, it goes without saying that I am currently going through PHP tutorials to equip myself as best as possible! If you have any suggestions for resources where I can learn PHP, I am all ears.
