How do I contribute to Ubuntu with programming?

I program mostly in Java and PHP/MySQL, but I have wrote C++ programs before, the basics anyway. What do I need to know to be able to contribute, and where would I learn about developing C++ on Linux because I used to use Visual Studio... I was thinking if I could just do something simple to start like bug squashing, that would help me learn C++ to a greater degree (and fix those random annoying bugs :P)

Update:

I was specifically thinking of Unity, but anything really that would give me some experience. I have a couple of software ideas in mind, but I was hoping to get some experience working on some already existing projects first.
