On Monday 8 PM, I'll be in the Noisebridge common space talking about my http://openhatch.org/ website and how it can help.
  
We'll show you how you can find the first bug you'll close in open source. You can browse by project, programming language, the kind of help needed (like just "documentation"), or how tough the bug is (we index about 1500 "bitesized" bugs). It's surprisingly easy -- if you can code Python, you'll probably find there's a bug in Python itself that you can tackle.

For current contributors, we'll show you how you can get your project listed and reach out to people who might be interested in helping. Plus I think you'll enjoy helping newcomers find their way.
