Embedded Linux Development is designed to provide experienced developers a solid grounding in the methods used to adapt the Linux kernel and user-space libraries and utilities to particular embedded environments, such as those in use in consumer electronics, military, medical, industrial, and auto industries. This five day course includes extensive hands-on exercises and demonstrations, focused upon the tools necessary for developing embedded Linux devices. Upon mastering the material you will have a basic understanding of:
You will step through all of these phases of Embedded Linux Development with laboratory exercises on an embedded board (provided by Linuxhotel). These exercises give you hands-on practice you can take directly back to your project. After class, students will get to take their embedded Linux development kit home for further practice.

The course is primarily intended for experienced developers programmers and engineers who are interested in learning how to adapt Linux to an embedded system, especially those who have been assigned to a team tasked with designing such a system. The purpose here is to shorten the learning curve by providing a guided tour of the relevant points within the architecture of Linux systems.
While there is some discussion of kernel programming and how to write device drivers and other kinds of kernel modules, LFD411 is not primarily a programming class.
While there is some discussion of applications, this course focuses on the plumbing, the internals and design of embedded devices, not on how to write applications to run on them.
Knowledge of basic kernel interfaces and methods such as how to write, compile, load and unload modules, use synchronization primitives, and the basics of memory allocation and management, such as is provided by LFD420. Pre-class preparation material will be provided before class.
** These sections may be considered in part or in whole as optional. They contain either background reference material, specialized topics, or advanced subjects. The instructor may choose to cover or not cover them depending on classroom experience and time constraints.
The Linuxhotel seminars focus almost exclusively on free software. In most cases you recoup your training expenses by being able to use free software.
