Official Linux Foundation™ Course

This Embedded Linux Development training course will give you the step-by-step framework for developing an embedded Linux product.

You’ll learn 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 four day course will teach you the tools and techniques necessary for developing embedded Linux devices.

In this course you’ll learn:

  • The Linux kernel architecture, emphasizing the essential points relevant to adapting the kernel to a custom embedded platform.
  • The techniques for right-sizing the system to meet project constraints
  • The multitude of resources available for constructing a cross development environment for embedded projects.
  • The options available for populating libraries and application user-spaces to meet the goals and constraints of embedded systems.
  • And more.

The information in this course will work with any major Linux distribution.
