The Linux kernel is a huge software project, with over 18 million lines of code. Approaching it is a difficult task for many new developers as they do not now where to begin.
This talk will cover a public project that introduces developers to the kernel, starting out from a basic “Hello World” kernel module, and moving on from there to explore a wide range of different skills and areas of the kernel, including interacting with the community.
This project currently has over 6000 people participating from all parts of the world and has resulted in hundreds of kernel patches accepted.
