Iâm Valentino, I come from Italy and Iâm 14 years old. I am really interested in learning programming languages and I thought that asking the Wayland team how they built Wayland could be a great idea. I donât carry any kind of experience, so I probably canât help to this project, but if I could learn, then maybe one day I could become helpful. Of course, it is unlikely that I can be physically present, but the technology that we have today enables me to learn and help people in other places which revery distant from home.
Wayland is a networking protocol, so you cannot build it (with a
compiler). What you can build is Weston, the reference implementation.
Have you read  and if so, how far did you get?
If you really have no experience, you should start by reading a good
book on Linux' system architecture and command-line tools; ideally while
you're trying to get Weston to build.
If you want to work on Linux graphics you also have to understand C. But
that can wait for later.
Have a nice day,
P.S.: Excuse me for my English, but because itâs my third language Iâm trying to do my best.
