On Monday, October 10th at 18:30, Haifux will gather to hear Baruch 
Siach talk about

     How to Participate in the Linux Kernel Development (and Why)


The Linux kernel is one of the largest scale free software projects. 
More than thousand developers contribute code to each kernel release. 
Becoming one of them is not an easy challenge. First you need to 
familiarize yourself with the technical side of kernel development, with 
its unique peculiarities. Then, you need to understand and carry out the 
long, and sometimes painful, process of patch submission. However, the 
reward for this pain is great.

This lecture is a practical introduction to the kernel development 
process. I'll first explain why you (and your employer) should consider 
submitting patches to the mainline kernel. Then, I'll show how this 
process works, and what it takes to get your code into the mainline 
kernel. This lecture is not about the technical side of kernel development.

The intended audience for this lecture is kernel hackers wannabes, and 
those doing kernel development who do not participate (yet) in the 
mainline kernel development.


We meet in Taub (CS Faculty) building, room 6. For instructions see: 

Attendance is free, and you are all invited!
