Kernel Hacking for Hobbyists - An Outsider's Perspective - Manuel Schölling

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The roots of Linux lie in the community of hobbyist programmers and technical enthusiast. Nowadays still about 15-20% of accepted patches are developed "in mother's basement" by programmers without affiliation.
This talk presents how to start kernel development as a hobbyist based on the view of an outsider. It covers ways of finding a task as starting point for your first patch and how to submit it. Dos and don'ts of kernel development are discussed and, based on the author's experiences, patches and reactions from the developer community are exemplified to overcome the newcomers' "inhibition threshold".
