To become a good system programmer, you first have to understand How OS works? OS internals. Then you can start reading and practicing system programming by implementing core utilities provided by OS. https://www.quora.com/How-can-one-become-a-systems-programmer?
have you gone to or tried any cybersecurity courses as of yet? http://start.amu.apus.edu/cybersecurity/overview?gclid=CjwKCAiAt8TUBRAKEiwAOI9pAFDS2vaWqtKGNzCpAc_bvFYuQC1zkpOaoNYFTBQantVyrAUTqQYdeRoCricQAvD_BwE
To be clear, these were my dad's computers. But I was on them more than he was. For context, I'm now 42 years old.
Have you looked at any of the existing models and patents
try this one as it is free and online https://welcome.cybrary.it/welcome
when you get into firewall and cybersecurity there are special features you really need to be aware of
exactly where are you and I will look for a closer one
so you signed up then right???
OMG... The other relic I couldn't recall was a Sinclair. I remember the little keyboard with the covered tactile keys and thinking how cool. We used a black and white TV with UHF and VHF dials on them I believe. 😂
This conversation reminds me of the first season in Halt and Catch Fire where the competitive edge was in writing a better BIOS in the early 80s. If you haven't seen this, I highly recommend it.
LOL... I wish I still had my relics from when I was a kid. I had a TRS-80, Commodore 64, and one other I can't recall. Good stuff. 🤓
@Robert: E.T. was one of the first movies I saw in the theaters. I think I was 6 or 7 at the time.
The specific model we had was either this: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZX81 or this: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timex_Sinclair_1000
nice to have parents to inherit from... mine believed that computers were just a fad. *my brother 69 ( now retired ) *my sister 68 ( now retired ) *my younger brother 59 ( retiring soon ) *myself 52 All saw into the future architect of computer sciences... now my sons all have degrees within the computer sciences and technologies ranging from B.A.s to doctorates.
LOL... I guess someone should attempt to answer the actual question. Alas... I must admit I am not a system developer. I've never had much interest in working close to the hardware or kernel. I would definitely be classified as a software / application developer.
That does sound interesting.
How long have you been programmng in C++? What courses have you taken or qualifications do you have in C++, systems administration etc?
With so little programming experience you are not ready to develop an operating system. Please read the link posted earlier "A Hard Truth". If you are interested in OS development then start by learning something smaller shuch as an embedded operating system. eCos https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/ECos http://ecos.sourceware.org FreeRTOS https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/FreeRTOS http://www.freertos.org/ Contiki https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Contiki http://www.contiki-os.org/
I've been programming for over 30 years and wouldn't attempt an operating system on my own. I grew up with the simple operating systems like CP/M and DOS and built on that knowledge as the operating systems grew over the decades. You kids have to jump in at the deep end now. A Computer Science degree is a starting point these days.
