Coding Where To Start


Hello all...
I am going back to school after many moons for coding, it's been my experience that most institutions don't teach Linux coding. That being said I will learn the basics in school on where to start, but I want to be able to contribute to the Linux kernel and so on! Any place that I learn how to code for the kernel and be able to write nativity for GNU/Linux?? Thanks ahead of time

examine the startup scripts in "init.d" or rc.n or upstart on your particular Linux OS.

Hi Omega, Welcome to LQ. Linux kernel is purely written in C. So install GCC and start writing C programmes to interact with your h/w devices.
