Hi Krishna,

Welcome! As a starter, you may want to watch some of the SystemML videos on
YouTube, such as those on the Spark Technology Center channel:

We have a 'Contributing to SystemML' page that contains some information
that can also help you get started.

If you find a particular area of SystemML that you are interested in
contributing to (algorithms, APIs, core functionality, documentation, etc),
please feel free to ask on this email list, and I'm sure someone with
knowledge in that area can help you get started.
