One of the best things which you can do to start learning the PostgreSQL
code base is to review existing patches which have been proposed for

for the next version of PostgreSQL (PG v10) is at the end of the month
and there's a ton of patches which need reviewing.

The patches which need reviewing can be seen here:

There's lots of information on our wiki and other places about
developing PostgreSQL, you can start here:

We look forward to working with you!  Welcome!
