Subscriber-only content, and how to register

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

At this point, this is the end of the complimentary content, so if you want to continue this course, you will need to subscribe. There is no deadline for subscribing -- you can register whenever you want, at which point you will have access to the entire course.

I estimate there will be another 20 lessons and, at a minimum, they will cover the following topics that you saw back in the course syllabus:

  • Advanced kernel configuration issues.
  • The intricacies of module entry and exit code.
  • Working with module parameters.
  • Basic kernel memory allocation primitives.
  • Writing simple /proc files and sequence files for your modules.
  • Special device files and device registration.
  • Communicating with your modules with ioctl calls.
  • Writing your first character driver.
  • Some basic kernel debugging techniques.
  • An introduction to cross-compiling for non-x86 architectures.

In addition to the above, there will also be the occasional side-trip, such as when I'll explain a few more things about Git that you'll probably find useful.

There are other benefits to being a subscriber, as each course has its own course-specific mailing list on which you can chat with other registered students.

The total cost for this course is $39 (Cdn), and when you're ready to subscribe, just go here. Note that the original (2010) edition of this course is still available, but registering for the newer edition will give you full access to the first edition, anyway, so it doesn't really matter to which one you subscribe -- you'll end up getting complete access to both.

Coming soon ... more Git, a return to kernel configuration and more about module entry and exit routines. Hope to see you there.

NOTE: There is no subscriber-only content for this new course yet; there should be some in the next few days, so just enjoy the complimentary lessons until then.
