You'll also want to have a git setup to hand - probably not with full
provisioning capabilities unless you want to (the new libvirt providers
make this quite easy), but at least to be able to load the web UI and
possibly the smart proxy.
Foreman :: Contribute and
Foreman :: Manual have
some information on this. I'd advise using something like 'rvm' to
manage Ruby and gemsets.

Sure, I'd probably start from this list:
These are the issues tagged as easy or trivial in Redmine and hopefully
is reasonably accurate. We don't really do this often though, so if you
and others are working from it, I can try and do this when triaging.
Another good place to work on might be the Hammer CLI, which is under
rapid development, but there is probably a lot of low-hanging fruit.
Martin or Tomas who are leading the development may be able to advise.
The issue tracker for that sub-project is at
Issues - Hammer CLI - Foreman.
Perhaps the most important thing is to learn the community and
development process, from using git, testing your changes, submitting
them and the review process.
We're also very active on IRC, #theforeman-dev on Freenode, so do come
and say hello. (Mostly European office hours.)

Everybody is welcome Perhaps we could tap your VMware knowledge some
time too, if you have experience with the virtualisation products?
