According to my experience you should the following.

1. Understand the openstack functionality. Be installing, different commands in keystone, glance, nova etc
2. Learn Python. You don't have to be expert.
3. Take a specific component like keystone, glance or compute
4. Look at the bugs etc filed against these components. 
5. Try to fix the bugs. 

Refer the following link on how to contribute for OpenStack

Boom... You are openstack contributor !!!!

Thanks for the reply Dheeru, I have installed openstack in lab environment and already practicing in openstack administration. I am learning python so I guess I have started following the same path :) . I want to know which frameworks or libraries are used in openstack components. I know django is used for horizon(dashboard) what about other frameworks/libraries. And if you can pointout some tutorials for that please.

To get insight of the libraries used you can take a look at "requirements.txt" file in each project repo. Say if you want to know what modules are used in glance take a look at the URl below.
