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.

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.
