Getting Into Linux Kernel Development After 30 Years - Muhammad Usama Anjum, Collabora

Feedback form is now closed.
Linux Kernel has celebrated its 30th anniversary. As an open-source project, it constantly needs new developers and contributors who are ready to dive deeply into so much old codebase, which is evolving every minute. The documentation of all the components isn't available and even if it is available, it isn't updated from where the beginners should start understanding and contributing. There are several efforts to entice new people through trainings, internships, and easy communication mechanisms. All of these will be mentioned in my talk, including some paths which the newbies have taken to successfully become Linux Kernel developers. This talk will serve as awareness and advice to kernel newbies.
