Updated Course Material and a new board!
This course is perfect for those wanting to develop for or build an Embedded Linux system from scratch or commercial Embedded Linux solutions. The course starts by looking at the various components of an embedded Linux target, development choices and debugging possibilities. We learn to use the most common buildsystems: Buildroot and Yocto. Next we take a more detailled look at the Linux kernel architecture, important issues such as cross compilation and building of the most important components. Finished by some more specific subjects to the choice of the customer (such as Real Time Linux, initiation to kernel configuration and development,... ). During this course all participants will have the opportunity to build and experiment with a multifunctional small-footprint embedded target with a serial port and network interface. After the course, the participants can take the board with them to continue experimenting.
IT Background and general Linux skills. Linux Power User or simular experience, Linux System Administration or simular practical experience (knowledge of things like kernel compilation and filesystem internals are prerequisites), C/C++ Programming experience
Method Course/Workshop, classical educations with practical exercises.
Participants Everybody who is responsible for designing and maintaining Embedded Linux Systems.
