Default [Q] How to become a rom developer?

Howdy everyone!

After using android for a few years (since 2011) and experimenting with a lot of roms and kernels, I am now looking to take the next step: to become a rom/kernel developer!

My problem is, I have no programming or developing experience, AND I don't know any programming language.So I am a complete beginner at that stage.

Therefore I ask you guys, where do I start my journey to become a rom/kernel devloper?

Many thanks for all help!

Good plan... but you are asking in the wrong place. XDA has a number of forums catering for ROM cooking and development. These are Android specific rather than phone specific and therefore far more appropriate than this forum.

Suggest you start here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/ and have a look through the many and varied areas that will help you.
Moto G 16GB (Good noddy phone for Mrs Ash)
Sony Xperia ZL - Actually better than the Z for me - and LOUD! (daughter 1)
LG G2 d802 - rooted Stock 80220C with Bloat removed (daughter 2)
Sony Xperia Z2 - rooted stock (me)
iPAD 2 - was good in 2011, now seems a bit pants!

Yes I was debating where to post it..is it possible for a moderator like @Judge Joseph Dredd to move this thread to android q a help and troubleshooting?
Just to avoid another thread about the same...

Install the Android sdk, ADB, Java\Eclipse, and get prepared for lots of reading Set up decompiling and deodexing programs/environments (ApkMultiTool, Tickle My Android, etc) Search in Android General and other subforums, there is a TON of stuff to learn on this site! Entire sections devoted to teaching this kind of thing.
