Thanks for your interest in our project! It is great that you have alreadyhave some experience working with Java and Android. The kinds of thingswe work are:
* Android Java programming
* building and managing Java jars
* C code and building with Makefiles
* how Debian works
* how to make Debian packages
We do not expect you to have all of these skills, but you'll need to be
strong in at least two to be an effective contributor. And of course
part of this is about you learning new skills.
Next steps for you are to look through the Android Tools team wiki to

previous years to get an idea of what that should look like:
Feel free to ping any of us in IRC when you have questions.
