Now that the daily build for Ubuntu 11.10 are available, I am wanting to be able to do my part in the development of the next version of ubuntu. which kind of Programming languages can i learn to help develop and test apps? What are other things i could do to help development? Thanks.
P.S. I've been a supporter of ubuntu for almost five years now, but I am fairly new to the development process. So please, be nice :)

you can find a large choice of programming languages available into repo. When your project is defined, then sourceforge or a ppa is a good place to let it be used and tested.

You could always do what I do. Download Kubuntu and just use it, and then file bug reports if/when something breaks.

Going straight for bugfixes on possibly very old, complicated code is like jumping in front of a bus after deciding you want to cross the road.

This is what I use to look at the code and tweak Unity (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Unity/)
Install geany and git.
