Getting started as a developer

From the ReadyNAS-Developer-FAQ:

 

What do I need to get started developing an application?

  • Download SDK Package (which is only up to OS6.6.0)
  • Download Example debs Ver. 103 (189721 bytes) (which is located where?)
  • View README file in SDK package (This is included in SDK too.)
  • Download Zipped Development Environment VirtualBox VDI (839743644 bytes) (Found it, but why isn't this a link?  How can i determine if it's up to date?)
  • Read How to jump start using VM image   (which is located where?)
  • Read How to setup ReadyNASOS on VM (I think I found this, but the images are also not up to date.)

Provifding a FAQ usually implies that it provides answers.  This provides more questions than answers.  Does Netgear actually want new developers?  It doesn't look like it.  Can anyone point me to a real getting started guide and up-to-date files?

Re: Getting started as a developer

I did.  The link to the SDK there isn't a link to any SDK.  At least the one I found had actual SDK's up to 6.6.0.  That tells how to develop on a NAS.  I much prefer the virtual machine way since I can't mess up a real NAS OS that way.  Maybe the examples there are the ones mentioned in the other guide -- it's impossible to tell.
