Made my first contribution in 1982 or 1983. A library of prime number related functions. Trust me there wasn't much like that avaiable at the time. I encourage everyone to contribute—either as a stand alone or as an adjunct to an existing project. If nothing else it means that something you are interested in is avaiable. Go for it!

Yes, Everyone should contribute in open source programs, Because we learn a lot of new things and also share our knowledge with others.
