Linux kernel driver development training
The best course to get started with the development of device drivers in the Linux kernel!
About this event
An online seminar corresponding to Bootlin's Embedded Linux kernel and driver development training course, described with full details on https://bootlin.com/training/linux-kernel/. It is delivered over 7 half-days of 4 hours each.
The sessions will alternate between lectures and live demonstrations made by the trainer on real hardware. The live demonstrations will be made using the ARM-based BeagleBone Black platform. Even though this particular platform is used for the live demonstrations, the course remains perfectly useful and valid regardless of the specific hardware platform used in your projects.

Hardware requirements for the course
Besides a computer, an audio headset and a good Internet connection, there are no special requirements to attend this course: the practical labs are performed as live demonstrations by the trainer.
However, if you are interested in reproducing the practical labs by yourself, during the time between the sessions, you can purchase the following hardware items:
- BeagleBone Black or BeagleBone Black Wireless, which comes with its USB-A to micro-USB cable
USB Serial Cable - 3.3 V - Female ends (for serial console), such as this cable from Olimex.
USB Serial Cable - 3.3 V - Male ends (for serial lab), such as this cable from Olimex.
- Wii Nunchuk with UEXT connector available from Olimex.
- 4 breadboard wires with male endings such as the ones available from Olimex.
- microSD card
Please note that if you want to reproduce the practical labs by yourself, you need to schedule additional time, outside of the session hours.
Again: having this hardware is NOT mandatory to follow the course. Many course participants follow our courses without having the corresponding hardware, and the course is very useful even without the hardware.
