Thanks sirjofri,
I have taken a step back since yesterdays conversation with Jacob. I'm
now going through K&R and working the exercises. At some point, I will
look into some of the libraries that come with the P9 C

I will also take your advice and, at some point, try to set up a P9
system consisting of an auth server (factotum), a couple of file
servers (using both fossil and venti) and a cpu server. I will use
RaspberryPis for this, or maybe do it using virtual machines.

If anyone knows of books or papers that are not on the P9 legacy or
Cat-v sites, that would be useful to me, please let me know.

Then I started Plan 9 and everything was quite different. I had to reread many things, relearn many things and ask many question (while a chat platform like gridchat is much easier than email).
