Cool. The best way to start is the questions@ mailing list:


Try to ask and answer questions there, sometimes it's quite challenging 8-)

What is your main interest ? Which programming language, which
application area ? Are you into C programming or what
would be of interest to you ?

> Is there a 'easy-hacks' or 'bugs' list that I can begin with?

There's a page with ideas:


and there's the Google Summer of Code ideas page:


And if you want to start bug-squashing, dig into


and search for interesting bugs to reproduce, and propose patches.

I recommend reading the general handbook for the concepts:


Then, if you really want to do operation-system coding, look at the
Developers handbook.


If you want to have start in the application area, look at the
