Upsteam University acted like a starter to me. I attended the september session in Paris.

I'm interested in OpenStack since Essex but I did not dare submit my first patch.
Folks at UU make this happen.
During the two days group session we have learned the basics of Open Source and how to interact with such a community.
Then, weekly assessments and phone calls allow us to stay motivated and thus not to give up. We are given valuable advices to get our fixes accepted.

Guys at Upstream University are really cool and proficient.

Thanks for your kind words. 
I'm going to start reviewing. I take note of what Jeremy Stanley said:
"OpenStack does not lack developers... it lacks reviewers."
