In our wiki there are several documents that lead you through the first 
steps. You may want to have a look into the (really) Quick Start Guid in 
[1] or the Creating your first RIOT project in [2]. When it comes to 
hardware you can use the Getting Started with STM32 boards in [3] which 
goes a bit more in detail.
Please follow the procedures described in [4] (and [5]) for RIOT

You can scroll through our issue list in [6] and pick up any issue you 
feel concerned to. Feel free to open a pull request, discuss on GitHub 
and write to this mailing list :-) !
