As mentioned in my New Year’s resolution, I’m going to launch some online training for embedded Linux development.

Yes, this training will happen. Interest continues to build. At this point, I’m delaying until the first of our triannual image releases comes out next month to align with the latest software release. I’m also fixing an issue with the TechLab boards being improperly classified for export, preventing shipments to some countries. I’m also working on getting a few more of these into distribution as I expect we’ll run out with everyone looking to do this training.

Here’s a bit more on the format:
• It will be done as YouTube “premieres” of 30 minute videos with live chat
• There will be an extra 30 minutes of live chat on
• On-going discussion on under “Training”
• First session built on PocketBeagle TechLab materials
from e-ALE workshops
➡ Kits will be available via a Digi-Key shopping cart

PocketBeagle® and TechLab Workshop Setup

Feel free to get kits now, but I’ll try to include time to acquire kits after the first video. The first video will be more of an introduction to the concept and I’ll announce here on this blog when the first video is scheduled to premiere and will give at least a week’s notice.

As of now, some topics to be covered include:
➡ Use Linux command-line and explore file system
➡ Program basic Linux interfaces in JavaScript/Node-RED and Python
➡ Program PRUs using C
➡ Start writing kernel drivers in C

Any thoughts as to when this might occur?

I saw the resolution and I would like in on learning objectives. The books seem to have ceased in the world, i.e. for obvious reasons. Once something is put on paper, someone else has already changed something else to the point where what is on paper is "old" news.

Anyway, I want in too!

Hello Again,

If someone, maybe you and/or other people too, wants to set up a fund for teaching circumstances with a nice platform for learning in real-time w/ etiquette, sign me up. I can pay $5.00 on specific sessions if others are involved.


It may not sound like much to finance the foundation but if there are more people than just me signed up, $5.00 multiplied by (n) persons may help the foundation some. So, GSOC for 2021 happens and so others like myself can learn more about the works dedicated to boards outside of reading may both prove more valuable than just throwing source at people (maybe). Just maybe. And, who knows? Maybe a tidbit of an inkling of info. of what is to come may persuade onlookers. For instance, maybe a couple of "What is Next" ideas would be worthwhile.

Hello Sir,

Did I miss the call for this effort? If not, I am patiently waiting still. I will keep checking back and online via the blog.
