Course Description

What is Embedded Linux Training?

Do you want to master the concepts of embedded Linux and climb up the corporate ladder? Then, you’re at the right place.

Embedded Linux is built on the same Linux kernel and has tight constraints that enterprise systems don’t have, ranging from high reliability and security requirements. It requires additional packages beyond the original kernel based on what you’re going to build. The best solutions will differ from different use cases, making each Linux system unique.

Most world-class companies like Google, Facebook, Wikipedia, and Amazon run on Linux, and they have their Linux embedded applications for their high popularity — which makes a promising career await you with lots of exposure in the embedded Linux world.

So, in this course, you'll learn the basics of Linux, have better control over Linux commands, their execution, and seamless management of the Linux boot processes. You’ll also learn the Kernel Modules, CMake, building libraries, working on toolchains, time functions, etc.
