    Question Getting started: where exactly?

    A little about me:
    - Took 3 years of programming in high school.
    - Have mostly done amateur programming in Crystal Reports and VB (w/ Excel) for my work (Job title is CAD Drafter)
    - Not so naive I'm trying to program a PC Game from scratch in C++

    I'm wondering if there is a thread or even a website somewhere that has simple open source projects where maybe there is a game or program that has a bug list and they are looking for volunteers to run through it and solve those problems. I realize that "getting into programming" is an extremely broad term but I was hoping to find a decent. I think it would be educational and fun to get involved into something I can actively contribute to and not rely on myself to be the lead on the project.

    Didn't want to ramble so feel free to ask any questions I am happy to clarify.

    Get a compiler (say Visual Studios). Make up a project (say the least coins exercise). Give 'er a run. Ping here if you get stuck.
