Hi coolasim79 and welcome to LQ.

Just to advise, here is LQ's Welcome Thread to help you moving forwards with some questions.

Please understand that people are happy to offer opinions about their experiences with Linux and offer some guidance, and the main intentions of this site are that you do learn Linux by way of your own efforts.

For starters, have you installed and used Linux on an intended development computer? How do you access these set top boxes so that you can load new applications for them? What language are you developing your applications in?

Debian derivatives like Ubuntu have a package called build-essential, which you should install. It contains the GCC compiler (which handles both C and C++), binutils (assembler, linker, etc), make (a basic build-scripting tool) and the libc header files, as well as a number of other useful tools. These are all used in the GNU build process which has good online guides that you should read.

When building, you also need to remember that most Linux distros install their libraries in two parts: there is the binary library itself (libfoo.so), and the development package containing the headers and documentation. In Debian-based distros, these are called libfoo-dev. You will always need the development package to build against a library.

To learn any topic, start with the 'soft skill' of optimal www-search keywords.
Here, start with this (Google): linux intitle:stb coding|development beginner
(for DuckDuckGo.com, t: for title. Here, | is OR without spaces)

Enjoy transitioning your SetTopBox embeddedOS from M$WinCE to Linux.

p.s. Maybe look at (how this distro is implemented):
https://distrowatch.com/openelec
https://github.com/OpenELEC/OpenELEC.tv
