Catching up on education opportunities a bit:
Along with some free resources, like this white paper on getting started with embedded Linux and this short video of Jerry Cooperstein introducing embedded Linux, the Linux Foundation has announced three paid embedded Linux training opportunities:
- LF411 Embedded Linux Development, the granddaddy course, is 5 days of hands-on training with a premier embedded Linux educator.
- LF410 Embedded Linux Development: A Crash Course is a 2-day version of LF411. Look for it at a conference near you (in this case, LinuxCon 2011 in Vancouver this August)
- LF405 Embedded Linux Development with Yocto Project/OpenEmbedded is a 5-day course with a strong emphasis on using the Yocto Project for embedded development.
Back on the free-as-in-beer side, Michael Opdenacker and the other fantastic folks at Free Electrons just announced the availability of three sets of videos from the Embedded Linux Conference 2010 and Gstreamer Conference 2010 last fall in Cambridge, UK. This is an excellent way to participate and learn without actually needing to travel to the events:
- ELC-E 2010 presentations
- Android and Embedded Linux tutorials by Chris Simmonds
- Gstreamer Conference 2010 presentations
