I would suggest you start by running a Zcash full node or contributing to the Zcash ecosystem first so you can get a feel of where things are and how they work. Additionally, a simpler coin such as Bitcoin itself might be easier to fork.

If you choose to go down the former route, the best way to get started is by building and running the official full node (source here). Changing things around can get you quite familiar with the codebase, and if you make a notable change, you can create a pull request and have it merged in. Additionally, you can look through the Issues section and try to fix a bug or add a feature another user already requested. Generally, some easy ones are always left there for new people to join in.

Good luck!
