Introduction to GPU programming with Metal

Omer is an NUS Hackers coreteam alumni. He is currently a Senior Software Engineer at Sea.
Hacking on the Linux kernel
Ever wondered what goes into the development of the Linux kernel? We discuss, among other things, the kernel’s development process and some rationale behind it, how to get a patch into the kernel, some useful tools in figuring your way around the kernel source, and some ideas on how to actually work on the kernel codebase itself. As far as possible, no background knowledge about operating systems will be assumed.
Hao Wei is a computer science undergraduate and an NUS Hackers coreteam member.
This is the end of Friday Hacks for AY 2018/2019. It has been a pleasure organising Friday Hacks with everyone. Thank you for joining us, and see you next semester!
