Help for developing

Post by TommyB1992 » Wed May 17, 2017 3:50 pm

Hi guys,

i'm dummy 24yo programmer in: Python, PHP, SQL, HTML/CSS/JS.

I'm really interested to help to develop ReactOS because i think this software is really useful, but... i don't have the "engineer skills" for this.

Tell me the list of all books i needed for acquire the knowledgments for help you.

Sorry for my bad english.

Most of ReactOS is programmed in the C programming language. Some portions are written in C++. Learn C. Review the Reference page in the ReactOS Development Wiki. You do not have to read all of those books and web pages. The book Windows Internals, Fourth Edition is the most useful. It is not a beginner's book. Still, you can look up information on the Internet and read textbooks about operating systems. That will help you understand it.

Also, experiment with ReactOS. Learn how to build ReactOS. Use the debugger. Study ReactOS's source code. Look in the ReactOS JIRA bug reporting system. Look for a simple bug and try to fix it. Experiment with patching ReactOS. Good luck!
