You can join one of the many open source bioinformatics projects. Choose
something close to your own interests, download the software, try making some
suggestions to the developers (preferably via their mailing lists or bulletin
boards so you join in a wider discussion). When you are ready, you can try
making your own contributions (depending on the time and resources you have).
There are software projects, databases, standards initiatives and ontologies
that would welcome contributions.
Good places to start looking are www.sourceforge.net www.open-bio.org and
Hope that helps,
