Thanks for you interest and welcome to the D community. Your
skills will be valuable here if are willing to volunteer them to
the D effort.

While I'm not one of the people who will be judging the merits of
such a project, I believe there is a high preference for at least
the backend to be written in D. There has been some progress
with WebAssembly in D

My recommendations for getting started:
* Learn D. Start here (http://ddili.org/ders/d.en/index.html),
then look here (https://wiki.dlang.org/Books) Ask questions on
the Learn forum, IRC, or even StackOverflow.
* Lean web programming in D. Start with

If you have questions about the project, please ask away.
Specific questions are likely to get answers quickly; broad
questions less so.
The description of the project is intentionally left vague in
order to not constrain the participant's creativity. What
metrics do you think would be valuable to the D effort that you
feel confident you can succeed with in the time constraints of
the Autumn of Code event? After the event, it would be super
awesome if you could continue maintaining project and add to it.
If you have questions, ask away, but feel free to take the
general idea and run with it. Acceptance will likely be judged
based on the merits of your proposal; not the idea from which it
was formulated. Also, the ideas on the Wiki are just ideas to
plant a few seeds of creativity; you are also welcome use your
own unique idea as the basis of your proposal.
