If you love open source and have some extra time on your hands, why not consider volunteering to help out one of the projects hosted on SourceForge? You don’t need mad developer skills to pitch in, most projects will welcome volunteers with all levels of experience.
Even if you no coding skills at all, don’t let that stop you from finding a way to lend a hand because there’s always something that needs to get done. Project leads will help match your skills and interests to their todo list and you could end up doing anything from testing an app for bugs to touching up artwork and logos.
Here are a few projects looking for volunteers right now:
SourceForge community member wek21 is looking for people with Qt or KDE-related programming skills to help put together a desktop applet for Plasma that notifies users when friends update their social networking sites.
