Hi Vishal,

sounds like you want to build LibreOffice first. We have plenty of resources that guide you through the process [1,2,3]. The next step would be to find something you can work on. We call this easyhack [4]. Solving non-trivial tasks is a prerequisite for GSoC students [5] in our organization. And finally you may want to look over our GSoC ideas [6] to get an impression what we are looking for. Feel free to ask for help on our IRC channel #libreoffice-dev.

Hope you enjoy your time with us,
Heiko (UX mentor)

I have a GitHub account and know C++ upto file handling and have been using LibreOffice for quite a long time now. I've been thinking of preparing for GSoC 2019 and need this valuable guidance.
