Learn the basic methods and internal infrastructure of the Linux kernel, grasping both the theoretical and practical underpinnings. Get introduced to the important tools used for debugging and monitoring the kernel.

Course Description

Linux Foundation Training Program Director Jerry Cooperstein talks about our Kernel Internals & Debugging course.

Linux Kernel Internals and Debugging provides experienced programmers with a solid understanding of the Linux kernel. Upon mastering this material, you will have a basic understanding of the Linux architecture, kernel algorithms, scheduling, hardware and memory management, modularization techniques and debugging, as well as how the kernel developer community operates and how to efficiently work with it. This five day course includes extensive hands-on exercises and demonstrations designed to give you the necessary tools to develop and debug Linux kernel code.

The course is based on both the most upstream recent Linux kernel version, and mantains compatiblility with the kernel versions used by at least the last two releases of the major Linux distributions.

Why Choose Linux Foundation Training

There are many reasons to choose Linux Foundation Training:

  1. The Linux Foundation is the non-profit organization that hosts the Linux project, employs Linux creator Linus Torvalds and hosts kernel.org (where all Linux kernel updates are released). With 100+ employees (and growing!) across North America, Europe and Asia, we partner with clients for the long run.
  2. Being so close to the kernel, we are constantly updating our training to ensure that we are teaching you the most up-to-date information.
  3. Linux Foundation Training is unique in that all our training courses are designed to work on all major Linux distributions (including RedHat, Ubuntu and SUSE).
  4. We don't sell any software or support services so there's no hidden sales agenda in our material. Our only goal is to help you learn the material.
  5. When you train with The Linux Foundation, you're learning from instructors who are comfortable across all major Linux distributions and can answer student questions regardless of the distribution you're using for the class. You are truly learning from the experts.

Course Materials

As part of your registration, a printed copy of the course manual will be mailed to you. Expect 3-5 days for US delivery and 7-10 days for international deliveries.

Audience

You are interested in learning how to write and/or debug Linux kernel code. Maybe you are just doing this for fun, but more likely you have this task as part of your job. The purpose here is to ease your path and perhaps shorten the amount of time it takes to reach a level of basic competence at this task.

Prerequisites

You should:
  • Be proficient in the C programming language.
  • Be familiar with basic Linux (UNIX) utilities such as ls, grep and tar.
  • Be comfortable using any of the available text editors (e.g. emacs, vi, etc.).
  • Experience with any major Linux distribution is helpful but not strictly required.
