Even programmers who work on these things will often specialize in one platform (epoll/kqueue or Windows). It’s rare that one person will know all the intricacies of all platforms, and you could probably write a whole book about this subject alone.

  • You learned a lot about how mio is designed, enabling you to go to that repository and know what to look for and how to get started on that code base much easier than before reading this chapter
  • You learned a lot about making syscalls on Linux
