Linux System Programming Training describes different functions of operating system and focuses on Linux system programming. The course starts building the foundation through C programming language. The implementation of control flow statements, and data structures are executed. Further the operation systems concepts are discussed and later on the concepts are implemented through Linux programming. Participants gain understanding on the advance topics such as socket programming. The training equips the attendees with the foundation skills to work on Linux for embedded systems development.

By the completion of the training, you be learning the following:

  • Implement control flow statements, functions, arrays, pointers, structures, and link list using C programming language
  • Basic architecture of computer system and structure of operating system
  • Different functions of operating systems including process management, memory management, and storage management
  • File management system and signal handling to control the flow of data
  • Concepts of threading, semaphores, and Inter-process communication (IPC)
  • Socket programming using AF_UNIX
Target audience
  • Students from third and fourth year of BE / B. Tech. courses (Electronics, Electronics & Telecommunication, Instrumentation, Computer Science, Information Technology)
  • Final year students of MCA/BCA/M.Sc-IT/M.Tech
  • Working professionals from embedded systems and related domains
  • Professionals willing to develop Linux system programming skills
