How to Learn Embedded Linux (For Free Again)

In the past few years, the use of Linux in embedded devices has skyrocketed. Televisions, phones, cars, ATMs: you name it, it probably has Linux running in it. At the recent Mobile World Congress, Linux dominated virtually every product announcement: Samsung’s Bada, many new Android phones, the Linux Foundation’s MeeGo project, Palm, and many more. Embedded Linux today has been nearly as disruptive as Linux was in the data center in the 90s and 2000s as it displaced proprietary Unix OSes.

With massive growth comes the need for skilled developer talent. As many of you know, the Linux Foundation launched Linux training courses for developer and sys admins last year, and has been steadily expanding its offerings. This January we announced a free webinar series to help connect developers to the experts they need to advance their careers. Based on the demand we’re seeing in light of these recent announcements, we are announcing a new free training webinar on embedded Linux.

In this free webinar, you will receive the basics of embedded Linux development and get an overview of best practices. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn about a very hot area in technology. I hope you take advantage of it and find it useful for your career.

We also have a five day course on embedded Linux development for those ready to dive in on March 22 in the Bay Area. There are a few spots left so please register if interested. Those who attend the free webinar will receive a discount for the course.
