Course - FAQ
I already have some idea about device drivers. How does this workshop help me?
We understand target audience will have different level of understanding about Linux drivers. It is our best interest to deliver the workshop where the whole class can benefit. If you already have some idea, it will be an added advantage to grasp workshop contents better. During hands-on session we will specifically provide some advanced aspects of drivers (ex: USB) for you to practice and build deeper skills. Followed by that you will be able to work on assignments and advanced projects.
I am a working professional. How this course will help advancing my career?
Compared to other topics, Linux device driver is a technically advanced topic as it requires deeper Linux kernel knowledge. As a working professional by acquiring this knowledge & working on some projects. This will enhance your probability of moving onto internal job in your current organization or apply for a technically higher profile job outside. With devices becoming more diverse, Linux device drivers skill has become one of the hot and most sought after skill in embedded industry today. By riding this trend you can advance your career.

LDD Kit - FAQ
Can I purchase the Linux device driver kit? How?
Definitely. Self-learning kits can be purchased by anybody interested in self-learning. Request you visit self-learning kits in the web-site, choose the kit that matches your need. In each section we have provided simple ‘How to order’ section using which kits can be purchased at ease.
What are the unique features of Linux device driver kit?
Linux device driver kit is one of the key innovations that our team has brought in the field of education. Learning device drivers is considered to be a challenging affair due to lack of proper hardware, documentation and self-learning ecosystem that consist of sample code and projects. Our team has come up with a self-learning device that addresses these limitations by bundling unique combination of hardware, software and documentation. This kit can also be used as a micro-controller kit for IoT programming by changing modes. Recently this kit related technical paper was presented in Open Source India conference, which can be accessed by clicking here. In summary you can learn device drivers like a breeze using this kit.
What do you mean by self-learning kits? What are the benefits?
Emertxe has created innovative self-learning kits which consist of board, tool-chain, software and self-learning materials. This makes learning easier. Along with the course, this kit comes as a bundled option, so that you can practice programming at your own pace even after workshop. Please check out our self-learning kits for more details.
Trainer - FAQ
What do you mean by one month of lab assistance?
Linux device drivers workshop is conducted on two consecutive weekends. Contents are delivered in a workshop manner, which is power packed. However to realize the real benefit of this workshop, participants need to work on some real time projects / assignments to make the learning effective. In order to support this need, we provide one month lab assistance after the course. During this period our mentors will be providing you support when you are facing difficulty in building device drivers. This includes debugging issues in pair or clarifying your doubts using our online ecosystem. This way your learning will be complete & effective.
