Unix/Advanced Computing People

Post by Lakshmi Nataraja » Wed, 03 Feb 1999 04:00:00



Hi!

I am looking to network with people involved in Unix and advanced
computing
for both personal and professional reasons. I have been seriously
interested in the above for a long time. I have just joined USENIX and
hope it will be good for this purpose.

I am programmer, but my work environment does not have the concentration
in Unix that I am looking for.

I live in lower Westchester county, New York. I have got Linux on my PC
and
have been studying Richard Stevens' APUE as well as Bach's The Unix
Operating System. I am interested in Unix system programming,
administration, OS kernels, network programming, parallel processing
(don't
know much about it), Perl, Tcl/Tk, C, C++, Java, ... the whole bit!

I would appreciate some leads.
Thanks,
(Mr.) Lakshmi Natarajan.

The books you have mentioned are very good, especially the Steven's
(his network programming volumes are excellent aswell).  The Bach
book is good too, although a little outdated (it describes System V
how it was in the 80'ies).

Other excellent books (listed off the top of my head) are
McKusick et. al., "The Design and Implementation of the 4.4BSD
operating system" (also worth reading if you're not interested
in the BSD system in particular since the architecture description
holds true for most Unix systems), Uresh Vahalia, "Unix Internals -
The New Frontiers", which discusses system level similarities and
differences between the various flavours of Unix used today and most
books of the O'Reilly series (most bookshops with computer literature
have them) which are good introductory books to various aspects of
using, administrating and programming Unix.

Get "Linux Kernel Internals" and "Linux Device Drivers" then read
everything under /usr/include/linux.
That's a good start.

I suggest a book by WROX PRESS  called "Beginning Linux Programming"

It is centered around writing programs for Linux for the user who is not
familiar with UNIX.  It takes you through understading command shells
and your ENVIRONMENT, to writing shell programs and understanding
standard in and standard out.

Then it will walk you through writing a Character Mode Interface with menus

for a CD music library database in bash.

Then it will teach you a little about C programming and you will rewrite
the
same program in C.

Then you learn about the Web and how to write CGI programs.  again you
write the program with a web interface.

Then you learn about X-windows and how to program in GUI mode.

You will learn a lot about UNIX in general and programming in general
by working through this book.

It is so well written that I have had to buy 4 copies of it  because every
time
I lend it to someone like yourself they return it so dog-earred and
broken-backed
that I tell them to keep it as a present.

It is BRIGHT RED with YELLOW LETTERING.

-Ben.

Get a copy of Operating Systems: Design and Implementation. Very good
book to provide food for thought for theoretical grounding. It is by
Tanenbaum and the ISBN is 0-13-637406-9. You'll thank me for it.

Cheers,
Wes

1. Penguin Computing needs good people...

Penguin Computing is looking for people to do consulting and on-site
service and support for computer systems based on Linux.

Penguin Computing will sell Linux workstations, servers, and clusters.  It
will also provide training, consulting, and custom solutions based on
Linux.  

Our West coast office is opening in Mountain View, CA (Silicon Valley) in
mid-June.  Our east coast office in New York City will open in mid-July.
In particular we need people located near these two offices, but Penguin
Computing would like to offer on-site service and support in every major
city in the United States, and internationally.  We plan to open
additional offices in the Cambridge/Boston (Massachusetts area) as well as
a South American office located in either Santiago or Buenos Aries in the
following year.

We are also looking for employees to work in our Mountain View office.  We
will need people in the following fields:
     - Technicians to build and test computers
     - Quality Assurance
     - Sales and Marketing

Penguin Computing is also very interested in offering summer internships
to high school and college students who are interested in Linux and want
to build a company from the ground up.


415-722-2851.  If you are attending the Linux Expo in North Carolina, I will
be volunteering at the LINC booth (the Linux International Conference and
Exposition, which will take place in January 1999 in California).
