I've been using linux for some years now and I would really like to be part of the community that develops linux. I have a little background on programming (some PHP and very little C++). At the moment I'm trying to learn Bash Scripting. Can anybody here be my mentor or at least point me to the things that I need to learn to contribute to the development community? I am primarily interested in developing applications.
One more thing. I am not that type of person that reads tons of books just to understand a concept. I'm more into practical approach to learning. I prefer to code as soon as possible then understand how things work as a progress.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I also have github account.
