Linux kernel development might be a little different from other projects that you have developed code for. This introduction covers many non-technical kernel developer topcis, such as development style, cycles, and process, values, culture, maintainers and hierarchy, communications methods, coding style, submitting patches, and testing, plus anything else that comes up and is relevant. This is primarily about social engineering and not technical recipes for Linux kernel code.
