Operating Systems 101: Introduction and Foundation
There are serious consequences to violations of the academic integrity policy. You need to develop a solid foundation in computer science before moving on to other topics. Coursera: Computer Science is the course you should take first if you are brand new to the field of computer programming and computer science. If you have a little knowledge and experience under your belt, skip this course in favor of the Udacity of edX options. However, if you are brand new to the field, this course takes a no-prior-experience approach to introducing computer science and programming topics.
Udacity: Intro to Computer Science takes a web-development approach to teaching computer science. While not directly applicable to the prospect of building an operating system, this is a solid course that delivers useful information and provides a good overview of the basics of computer programming.
Operating Systems: Three Easy Pieces
With a solid grasp of computer science under your belt and some limited experience with programming languages, the next step is to learn how to tackle a large-scale programming project. In order to develop an operating system, you will need to master at least two programming languages:.
- Introduction to Operating Systems.
- Tales from the Promised Land: Western short stories from the California gold rush.
- CMPSCI 377: Operating Systems (Spring 2005);
- Process and Thread Management!
- Saving Sailor: A Novel.
Assembly languages are used to communicate directly with a CPU. Each type of CPU speaks a machine language and there is just one corresponding assembly language for each type of CPU. The most common computer architecture is x86, it was originally developed by Intel and is now used by a wide range of computer chip manufacturers including AMD, VIA, and many others. In this guide we will point you in the direction of learning x86 assembly language. High-level programming languages work with multiple computer architectures. C is the programming language most commonly used and recommended for writing operating systems.
For this reason, we are going to recommend learning and using C for OS development. The x86 Assembly Guide is a great place to start learning assembly language. Programming from the Ground Up by Jonathan Bartlett is one of the defining books of the assembly language landscape. This book uses assembly language as the basis for learning computer science and programming. This resource is also available from the Internet Archive.
The Art of Assembly Language by Randy Hyde is another iconic text in the world of assembly language education. If you want to use a traditional textbook to learn about x86 assembly language two of the most commonly used and highly recommended texts are:. There are many high-level programming languages you could learn and many different resources you could use to learn them.
The Benefits of Virtualization
Get a quick overview of the C programming language by completing this C Tutorial. Once you have a strong grasp of the fundamental concepts of computer science and programming, and have mastered assembly language and C, the next step is to complete one or two OS development tutorials that walk through the entire process of developing a simple OS from scratch.
We found three excellent resources that do just that. Linux From Scratch will walk you through the process of building a complete Linux operating system. The little book about OS development by Erik Helin and Adam Renberg was developed as part of an advanced computer science course the authors completed while students as the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. This course walks through the complete process of developing an x86 operating system by beginning with setting up a programming environment, culminating in programming for multitasking, and hitting topics such as managing system memory and developing file systems along the way.

Operating System Development Series from Broken Thorn Entertainment is a series of 25 tutorials that walk you through the process of creating an OS from the ground up. Beginners beware: this series assumes you already know your way around an IDE and are a competent C and assembly language programmer. There are many texts you could use to learn about the discipline of OS development.
