Impromptu event to come and fix some bugs in Java 8!

The OpenJDK team is asking for help in reducing the amount of simple bugs in the source code of Java 8 and have nominated the 1st of Dec as the first date to do this. One of the LJC's resident OpenJDK gurus (Mike Barker) will lead a hands on session where you will learn to build the OpenJDK (i.e. Java 8) and help hunt down and provide patches for some low hanging bugs.

You don't need a huge amount of experience to get involved, the sorts of bugs the OpenJDK team is trying to eliminate are the sorts of warnings that appear in Eclipse when you switch on the compiler warnings.
