A quick introduction to programming on Linux. Each chapter of the book deals with a certain sub-part of software development on Linux, such as development tools, basic system APIs, networking or GUI development with Tcl/Tk and GTK+.

It never goes into depth, but it is a nice overview and a good introduction that let's you start with any of these topic and then dive deeper with other books.

Pretty good textbook for Linux programming. I'd recommend it, although reading it on Kindle wasn't the best format, especially when there were tables and large chunks of code to look at.
