By trying to use the software and understand what it does, for a starter.
GSoC 2015 is still far far away, but if you wanna try to 'head start', then
we can't stop you :)
Download the code, read and understand it, compile, fix bugs, try to
improve something.

Subsurface has lots of lines of code and very different aspects are build
into the same software ( for instance, I work mainly with the user
interface, and ocasionally I break stuff on the core), Dirk works mainly
with the core and ocasionally he breaks stuff on the user interface ( há ),
so, mainly:

- download the code
- compile
- try to fix a bug
- try to come with a new idea of something that could be improved
- program it
- send patches.
