This is my first attempt at creating an simple Operating System for educational purposes. I want to learn more about the fundamental concepts of computing, because of this I am doing several projects like writing an interpreter, compiler, web server, filesystem, this project and creating my own 8-bit computer composed of manny ttl chips, breadboards and (an unnecessary amount to make it look more complicated) LED's.
Table Of Contents
This project contains several components such as an bootloader, kernel and additional tools for building/running the operating system. The bootloader is written in the NASM assembly and the kernel will be written in C and C++. Some of the additional tools for build/run automation are going to written in Bash, Makefile and Python.

Since its my fist real attempt to create an simple operating system, I have to learn a lot about almost every part needed in OS development. I enjoy to lean and found that writing tutorials and documentation really helps in my learning process. I think this is because explaining how, why and what your doing, uncovers if you really understand what and more importantly why you are doing something.
Tutorials/Documentation I used
🔗OS Development Series - BrokenThorn
🎬FlingOS: Creating an OS
- Bootloader Specific
- Kernel Specific
Other Cool Projects
While researching the subject of OS development I found several cool projects on GitHub that inspired me during the creation of my project.
🔗X86 Fuzzer, not related to OS dev but really cool) also watch a talk about it here.
