Lindon, UT — (press release excerpt) — Need to learn the ins and outs of using Linux for your embedded devices? Lineo Education Services is offering training that will jump start your project, providing you with hands-on learning. Included with the course is the uClinux distribution and a uCsimm developer board, so you can continue to practice and develop your skills long after the course is over.

uClinux provides an embedded Linux platform for MMU-less devices (MMU = Memory Management Unit). This three-day course teaches the basic characteristics of Linux, focusing on those that make it suited for use in embedded environments. Participants learn how to install and compile the uClinux distribution, manually build a version that provides a compact OS for an embedded device, install the build on the target system, and test
its operation.
