If, like me, you haven't yet started contributing to WP core, but you really want to get into it then this is pretty great guide on getting started: http://speakinginbytes.com/2013/11/contribute-to-wordpress/
Contributing to WordPress is easy! I documented all of the steps I took in creating & submitting a patch.

Trying out this review thing on G+. Thought I'd do one properly to see how it all works (plus, Mesopotamia is great, so it deserves a good review).
reviewed:
Mesopotamia
Long Street, Cape Town 8000
My wife & I go to Mesopotamia fairly regularly as it was the location of our first date. The food is amazing - there's a great variety of chicken, lamb and vegetarian dishes that range from entirely mild to very spicy - and it is offered in small starter portions as well as proper-sized main meals (all cooked in a traditional tandoor oven).

The atmosphere is unique and makes for a great dining experience - they have belly dancers to entertain you during the evening, which makes for something very different to your usual restaurant. They also have cigars and hookah pipes that you can buy and use respectively, but we've never taken them up on that.

It is a little pricey unfortunately - the most recent trip to the restaurent for the two of is cost R410 altogether (including service charge). The price is what stops us going there more often, but as a location for a special evening out, it's just perfect.

Looks cool - sounds pretty much like Dropbox, but with more free space and it's with Google (so it's instantly better).

It's a bit harsh on Steve Jobs (not that I really know the facts either way), but it makes a good point. Jobs (and Apple) would have been nothing without Dennis Ritchie's creations.

Every Friday I go to Cafe d'Arts for a few hours to work. I do this not only because the food and coffee are both consistently great, but they offer 100% free wifi for as long as you like (unlike the 30 minutes a day offered by places like Mugg & Bean). On top of that, the service is great and they allow you to order anything you like even if it's not listed on the menu. Overall, Cafe d'Arts offers a great experience that you should not miss out on.
