'Linux Device Drivers, Third Edition' and 'Linux Kernel in a Nutshell' are good reference that will aid you.

The above links and others available from 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!

And the first link is, of course, here on LQ

Developing Linux Device Drivers using Libusb API

PS
For other programming questions, you might be better off in the programming section of LQ.
