You could start by looking through the site of this community [0].
They have some pointers.

You should take a look at this video [1] first. It's a brief intro on
how the Linux Kernel community works.

But first, you should be familiar with C programming (it's good if you
did some system programming in C). If you have the basic C experience
and if you want to go onto kernel programming (not that hard) you
should try reading some books (I would recommend these [2] [3]).

After that, use the source! And if you get stuck, ask around (here,
for example).

Good luck and happy hacking!
