Linux has its own native programming scripts, but it's also possible to create software using open formats like C, C++, PHP and Python. Therefore, if you are familiar with any of these programming languages, then you can take control of the programming in a Linux system too.
Before you jump into Linux programming, however, you can exercise your coding techniques and your problem solving skills by checking out the website: Can you crack it? It's a website with 10 lines of code, that should be very easy for Linux coders to solve since many of you are veteran programmers.
