The Introduction to Embedded Linux online training course describes how to apply Linux, the free, open source operating system, to embedded computing devices. Topics include: a brief introduction to Linux and the open source philosophy, installing a cross-development environment, using the Eclipse IDE, running and debugging applications on an embedded target, configuring and building the Linux kernel, booting the target, and network applications.
Attendees should be very comfortable programming in C. Some familiarity with Linux is helpful, but not essential.
As this is very much a hands-on class, you'll get more out of the class if you have the target hardware on which the examples are run. The Embedded Linux Learning Kit from Intellimetrix contains this needed hardware, and is offered at a reduced price to Go Gogh members who purchase the course. To order, click on the link below.
