Application development in Linux/Unix environments. Part #1


Wednesday, 13 March 2013 – 19:00 to 22:00

ProgressBar Hackerspace, Dunajská 7495/14, Bratislava, Slovensko

In series of lectures/workshops/discussions we will discuss how to develop applications in Linux/Unix. This is very rich topic and I don't promise we will cover everything. Every lecture done be me (Martin H) will be in English, if at least one person there wouldn't understand Slovak (else it will be in Slovak). My lectures will be focused on compiled languages (like C/C++) but much stuff is usable for others as well.

Topics for first lecture:

  1. Filesystem structure from application development point of view (which files go where?)
  2. Basic security (how should applications work to be secure)
  3. Vim basics (only if enough people will want it; just to make changes of config files easier :))
  4. Git basics (and maybe some more advanced things, if we will have enough time)

Examples will be provided. It's recommended to bring laptop with Linux/Unix system, so you can experiment.

Knowledge requirements for first lecture: shell basics (I will be there since 18:00, so I can explain it to those people, who want to attend but don't know shell)

BTW, if anyone is interested in giving (lightning) talk as part of this series, please write me e-mail: martin dot habovstiak at gmail dot com
