Watch the Free Linux Tutorial: How To Build Character Drivers For The Linux Kernel

The Linux device drivers course will help you become familiar with the different kinds of Linux device drivers used under Linux and the appropriate API’s through which devices interface with the kernel.

Course Description

Linux Foundation Training Program Director Jerry Cooperstein talks about our Developing Linux Device Drivers course.

Developing Linux Device Drivers is designed to show experienced programmers how to develop device drivers for Linux systems, and give them a basic understanding and familiarity with the Linux kernel. Upon mastering this material, you will be familiar with the different kinds of device drivers used under Linux, and know the appropriate API's through which devices (both hard and soft) interface with the kernel. This five day course includes extensive hands-on exercises and demonstrations designed to give you the necessary tools to develop Linux device drivers.

Course Materials

When you sign up for this course with an early-bird discount, we’ll mail you a complementary printed copy of the manual.
