  • Last Date of registration is 6th August 2020
  • As mentioned in prerequisites participants must know system call programming.
  • It is expected that participants are aware of kernel space programming orientation and Linux kernel module programming.
  • This course doesn’t cover Linux kernel customization, Linux kernel porting on embedded devices, or kernel module programming.
  • The course is planned for a newbie in kernel development or one who wants to revise absolute basics. Linux device driver experts are not expected to take this course.
  • As mentioned in the syllabus course is focused on traditional character device drivers only. Linux driver model, block or network device drivers, synchronization mechanism, kernel or driver debugging techniques, hardware or embedded driver programming, PCI or USB device drivers are not included in this course.
  • Based on Q&A, webinar time may get extended for an hour for each day. Please consider this.
