Description

Description

This intensive four-day course will teach you the techniques required to build Linux into embedded systems. During the hands-on sessions you will learn about the fundamental elements that underpin all embedded Linux projects: the toolchain, the bootloader, the Linux kernel and the root filesystem. You will create each of these elements from scratch, and discover out how to automate the process using tools such as Buildroot and the Yocto Project. In later sessions, you will get to know the key aspects of coding for Embedded Linux, such as how to access hardware from applications, and how to design multi-threaded programs. You will also find out how to debug and profile code at both the application level and within the kernel so that you will be able to identify bugs and resolve performance bottlenecks.

Audience

This course is ideal for software engineers who are familiar with embedded devices but need to apply that knowledge to Linux development, and to those who are familiar with Linux, but want to apply that knowledge to embedded systems

Prerequisites

Essential: good knowledge of the C programming language, since this is used in the programming portions of the course

Desirable: either a good background in embedded devices, or a reasonable proficiency in Linux command-line tools. Delegates with neither will find the learning curve rather steep

Course materials

All students will receive:

  • A printed copy of the presentations and lab notes

  • Worked solutions to the lab sessions

  • A free copy of the trainer's book, “Mastering Embedded Linux Programming”
