Hi arik, welcome to the Linux Mint forums
Thanks for joining the forums!
If you want to develop for Linux Mint, I think developing Cinnamon, and writing applets and extensions for Cinnamon, is where the help is most useful right now. Source code to Linux Mint developed applications, such as Cinnamon, is at https://github.com/linuxmint
, and issues are tracked there also. If you can help fix some issues, that would surely be appreciated.
The Linux Mint, and Cinnamon applet an extension, developers, hang out at #linuxmint-dev. To join, in the Mint Menu, in the Internet section, start the application XChat IRC. You will automatically get connected to #linuxmint-chat for general chat and #linuxmint-help for support with other Linux Mint users. Then type the following to join the developer channel:

Be sure also to check out the Community
website (ideas, tutorials, and hardware and software reviews), and the Cinnamon Spices
website for adding themes, applets and extensions to Cinnamon (and check out the Cinnamon Extras
package, which will install a lot of these for your automatically). If you haven't installed Cinnamon, see here
the most recent update for a teaser.
