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!
