Learn the basic methods the Linux kernel is built upon, grasping the theoretical and practical underpinnings. Get introduced to the important tools that are 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 is designed to provide 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, hardware and memory management, modularization techniques and debugging. 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.

Course Materials
