Indeed, welcome Nick.  :-)

Picking something that needs doing and doing it is a good way to get 
involved - I started out by sending in patches to deal with Win32 related 
issues.  #34394 is probably a decent thing to start out with - it'll get you 
familiar with PMCs and doesn't require knowledge of a massive amount of the 
Parrot codebase to acomplish.

I guess if I could offer any advice, it'd be don't be afraid of asking 
questions and also expect to have to look at the source to figure some stuff 
out, because the docs aren't always as great or up to date as you might 
hope.  Noting where the docs seem wrong/missing/unclear, or if you can and 
have the time sending in a patch to correct them, would be a big help.
