Activities can be developed in any language, but until this point we
have focused in making life easier for python developers, as is the
language that we expect to be more used by users.

Think so, there's some info in the wiki.

I would recommend you and in general to all people looking for something
to do, to send an email to this list presenting yourself, your current
skills and the areas you have more interest. I'm sure the developers
will try to find something fun and interesting for you to work on.

Good luck,
