Hi Juan,

I think your best bet is to join the Brainhack slack group:

You can find out more about Brainhack here: http://www.brainhack.org/ but
in brief we're a community of neuroimagers who want to improve the state of
the science by building new open tools that can be used and improved by
others :)

The different channels in the slack team are different projects, many of
which are written in python. I'd recommend writing a little introduction in
the general channel (like your intro here) and asking if there are any
projects currently looking for contributors.

Have fun!
