Learn Linux Device Driver Development

Linux device driver development has become necessary for embedded engineer to enhance their career. This course targets engineers who wish to develop or enhance the skills of device drivers in the Linux kernel, for projects on embedded platforms, or on the traditional PC platform. TrainingCover provides six months theoretical and practical training of Linux device driver on Beagle board and Linux platform. The course makes you familiar with the essentials of kernel development: kernel architecture, the main APIs, integration of device drivers with other parts of the kernel and with user applications. After getting the training from TrainingCover you will be ready to work on Linux device driver development projects.
