This course is aimed at embedded system developers who want to acquire the know-how to put together embedded Linux systems without having to purchase any prepackaged distribution or pay any per-unit royalties. In other words, students will leave with the knowledge of how to build embedded Linux systems using open source and free software packages freely available on the Internet.
Each topic covered by the course is discussed in lecture form and exercised through instructor-led hands-on sessions. During this class, students will get to:
An additional goal of this class is to enable students to better understand how open source and free software packages are developed and how to best take advantage of the resources provided by the community developing this software.
The actual class content and order of material presented is subject to slight changes, depending on attendee needs and interest.
The use of Linux in embedded systems draws on many fields of specialty which are often taught separately. This course presents attendees with the combined knowledge required to build embedded Linux systems. In order for attendees to benefit most from this course, however, we expect each attendee to have basic knowledge in the following fields:
Karim J. Yaghmour is part serial entrepreneur part unrepentant geek. His experience combines a unique mix of mobile, embedded and kernel background with enterprise and web2.0/consumer-oriented Rich Internet Application development. Karim is the author of O'Reilly's Embedded Android and Building Embedded Linux Systems, which sold tens of thousands of copies worldwide and has been translated into several different languages.
Having been an early believer in the power of open source, Karim pioneered the world of Linux tracing by introducing the Linux Trace Toolkit (LTT) in the late '90s. He continued maintaining LTT through 2005 and was joined in this effort by developers from several companies, including IBM, HP, and Intel. LTT users included: Google, IBM, HP, Oracle, Alcatel, Nortel, Ericsson, Qualcomm, NASA, Boeing, Airbus, Sony, Samsung, NEC, Fujitsu, SGI, RedHat, Thales, Oerlikon, Bull, Motorola, ARM, ST Micro, Infineon, WindRiver, MontaVista, Scientific-Atlanta, Wipro and Autodesk. Other contributions include relayfs and Adeos.
Karim has presented and published as part of a number of peer-reviewed scientific conferences, magazines and online publications, including Usenix, the Linux Kernel Summit, the Embedded Linux Conference, the Android Builders Summit, AnDevCon, the Embedded Systems Conference, AndroidOpen, the Ottawa Linux Symposium, LinuxJournal, the O'Reilly Network and the Real-Time Linux Workshop. Some of Karim's projects can be found in our Community section. Karim holds Masters and Bachelors degrees in Computer Engineering from the École Polytechnique de Montréal.
