Participating at Noisebridge can be simple: come and hack on something!
This can be your own project, or someone else project, or Noisebridge itself. Noisebridge is composed of many groups of people who share interests and resources. Groups tend to organize as guilds. Chances are that something you're interested in participating in at Noisebridge like an event you attend or a tool you want to use is maintained as part of guilds that you can get involved in.
