You can look at the 'Programming General & WEB
' section of 'Slackware-Links
'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!
The section has a lot of useful links relative to programming. Loads of free online resource. If you choose 'C/C++' then you should be able to move between systems by learning the semantics & syntax for the system desired. Don't forget about 'Python' as a possible programming language. That's what is nice about GNU/Linux with the available compiler(s) and open documentation.
If you desire to learn shell scripting then I would look at 'Tutorials
' section to get some 'BASH' scripting help.
