Linux system programming | Linux kernel internals | Linux device driver online training course

A Linux device driver is a program that allows the operating system to communicate with a device. The driver acts as an interface between the device and the operating system, translating commands from the operating system into a language the device can understand.

In Linux, device drivers are typically written in C and are integrated into the kernel as kernel modules. These modules can be loaded and unloaded dynamically, allowing for greater flexibility in managing system resources.

Introduction to Linux kernel programming and covers topics such as kernel synchronization, interrupt handling, and device drivers.
The Linux Foundation offers a variety of online courses, including ones focused on kernel development. These courses cover topics such as kernel debugging, system calls, and kernel modules.

C and Linux system programming
In this course, you learn about the C and Linux system programming. You will begin course by learning to solve defined problems related to C and Linux programming. By the end of each course, you would be able to evaluate and assess yourself in the C and Linux programming for any open-ended problem and implement a solution based on your design choices.

2.5 months to complete


Good C knowledge, and basic hands on Linux.

Advance C concepts:

Start learning with basic concepts of C programming like array, pointers structures , string etc . and later on Linux system programming topics like manipulate the command line, manage processes, files and memory, and compile C code with Linux .At,the end you will be able to Interpret, analyze, and implement concepts discussed with ease.

Basics of System programming:

After excelling our basic skills will start learning with basics of Linux system programming like file – read, write, open, close system calls, manipulate the linux command, manage processes, files and memory. At the end you will be able to Interpret, analyze, and implement concepts discussed with ease.

Advanced System programming:

Through advance system programming concepts will be discussing about IPC concepts like – PIPE,FIFO,RPC, semaphore, conditional variables, process creation and memory management related system calls like fork clone and mmap etc. Aslo we will create small POCs including above conepts.
