Aspiring Linux Mint Developer

Postby noeyx » Sun Oct 28, 2012 11:07 pm

Hi. I'm a librarian from the Philippines who loves Linux and FOSS. Just a quick history, I stumbled upon Linux when I was in college last 2006 and never lost interest in it since then. I distrohopped a lot from Ubuntu to Fedora to OpenSUSE to Debian and finally settled to Linux Mint. The main reason why I sticked to Linux Mint is the vibrant community and the great OS. I've been using Linux for a long time and now I think it is time for me to contribute to its development. Since I'm a librarian who doesn't have any experience in programming, what are the skills, computer science subjects, or progamming knowledge necessary for developing Linux Mint? What resources (websites, books, videos, etc.) must I use to easily and quickly learn Linux OS development?

Thanks and long live Linux Mint! :)

Hello noeyx,
The various ways users can contribute to the Mint project are listed here
The best way to see what development projects are currently underway and to see if there is something you can contribute to is to join the Mint Development IRC Channel #linuxmint-dev
