I'm not a Tor developer, but I read the Tor developers list. A month ago 
there was a thread on this list called "Help me help you : )". It received 
two responses from teor. Let me quote them.

Hi Lain,

Thanks for volunteering to help out with Tor.

Tor uses a few programming languages:
* The core of Tor is written in C
* Pluggable Transports are written in Python, Go, C, =E2=80=A6
* Tor Browser is written in C++, JavaScript, =E2=80=A6
* and other projects use other languages.

If you can program in C, or write documentation, there are tasks in our bug tracker marked "easy".
https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/query?status=accepted&status=assigned&status=needs_information&status=new&status=reopened&keywords=~easy&col=id&col=summary&col=status&col=type&col=priority&col=milestone&col=component&order=priority <https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/query?status=accepted&status=assigned&status=needs_information&status=new&status=reopened&keywords=~easy&col=id&col=summary&col=status&col=type&col=priority&col=milestone&col=component&order=priority>

Volunteers can do many different tasks:

Tor has a bug tracker called "Trac" at:
https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor <https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor>

If there is an existing task for the patch, please attach it there.
(You can search for tasks using the "search" box in the top right corner.)

Patches typically go through one or more rounds of code review and revision.
If it's your first patch, a smaller task can help you to learn tor's coding style and patch submission process.
