[OT] Programming - Where to start (Pretty Long)
Now I know many of you are uber-hackers so no laughing, and if some of you are on the debian-users mailing list, you may have already seen/heard this message, so delete now! :-)
Anyway, part of my problem is, I am much more function over form. I don't like making pretty web-based interfaces. I like the database stuff, etc. I really want to delve down into systems/kernel/driver/translator type of stuff.
I am reading "The Art of Computer Programming" as was suggested by many on the debian-user list and a few suggested that I check out the Hurd. I actually already had it installed and thought it might be a good place to delve into some things and learn about OS design and such. I also saw the project on Savannah about rpctrace and started looking at the code but it gets over my head relatively quickly. I have also read the Hurd Hacking Guide.
So, to make a short story, long... Do any of you gurus have any words of wisdom for a good place to start?
