Linux Kernel Internals Programming

Linux Kernel Internals Programming

Duration : 20 Hours

Student, who want to solid development expertise in Cloud Computing , Big Data, DevOps and IOT technologies, must have good understanding of Linux Kernel Internals.

During course, first, we covers basics of Linux kernel Architecture and then deep dive of memory management & process management of Linux Kernel, Linux Kernel module programming, Linux char device driver, Linux kernel debugging techniques and locking mechanisms.
