The Linux kernel recently turned 30 years old and it has caused a lot of people to reflect on how software evolves and how they became involved in Linux. Red Hat is a company that has profited from Linux more than most and celebrated Linux's 30th birthday by interviewing early contributor Pete Zaitcev. "I do not remember what my first proper contribution was. I think it must have been a patch to fix pseudo-DMA in floppy.c in August 1995. Nobody cared who you were as long as the code was good." Zaitcev talks more about his early days with Linux in Red Hat's blog post.
