5 day training in Mainz
System programming and real time with embedded Linux


In this 5-day course you will learn how to use embedded Linux and you will be able to develop software for it. 

All exercises are carried out directly on the AM335x embedded board. The participants receive the embedded board and the USB hard drive with Linux installation, which was used in the seminar. This means that what you have learned can also be reproduced exactly after the seminar.


To the speaker

Andreas Klinger, IT Klinger
has been a trainer and developer in the field of system-related software development with a focus on driver development, embedded Linux and real-time since 1998. As a Linux specialist, he deals with the internal structure of the kernel, the system mechanisms and, above all, their use in embedded systems.

In 2011, 2014 and 2018 it was honored with the Speaker Award Audience Award from visitors to the Embedded Software Engineering Congress. He has proven his expertise with a whole series of specialist articles in electronics practice and in the ESE report, as well as with a whole series of commits for the Linux kernel.
