I have been a python developer / devops engineer for about 10 years. Over the last year I have taken a strong interest in Robotics.

I completed Udacity's Intro to AI for Robotics and joined their Self-Driving Car Nanodegree in the first offered Cohort.

I am also registered to begin the GA Tech's online master's in September with specialization in Computational Perception and Robotics.

Like most everyone here is, I am a project based learner. For example here's a Pi 3 based Robot that uses ConvNets with TensorFlow to follow a line on the floor (using a front facing camera) with varying degrees of success

I am beginning to learn ROS and I see great potential for myself and my education if I truly learn this platform. I think that to get the best out of something you have to contribute to it.

In short I am wondering how I can become a contributing member of the ROS team. Most OS projects are looking for people to do QA and bug fixes as their first level of contribution. Can anyone guide me on how I can begin this? What's the official way of doing this?
