I don't call myself a programmer, however, I do know bits and pieces of a few languages. One thing that I have found difficult is to find information on the internet about how to program for the linux operating system. I know how to basically create source files, and compiling one or two files into an executable, but what are the steps of creating a full fledge linux project (GPL or other similar license)?

I would like visitors to post some helpful resources for programming in linux, it can be for any language. I would like to create a resource of such for visitors who are interested in programming but do not know where to start.

Hello All..
I am not a great programmer but you can call me a budding one...i am basically a c/c++ programmer (A bit of python,PHP and java also...but i don't count on that..) i am giving few links that are really helpful for Programming in Linux:..
1.C links... (excellent book on c) (contains...assorted articles on c/c++/SDL). (another good book on c)
2.CPP links.. very good book on c++) links to several other resources on c/c++) book on c++)
3.Writing device drivers(yeah i have tried writing device drivers also..but due to lack of time..i had to quit and complexity also...)
4.though i have never tried GTK but i have done a lot of work on QT and i must admit that if you know cpp then QT documentation is best to start with..right now i am doing a project on Heat Exchangers(Chemical engg stuff..) and i am writing a software for better Heat Exchanger network analysis..using QT and i find QT very much capable of handling complex Work...
5.Game programming...on Linux..(Using SDL library)
hope it will help....
