I thought the following would be of interest to the mailing list. Bill
Gatliff is going to offer his Embedded Linux course in the local area
from June 27 - July 1. I talked to Bill and the tentative location is
either around BWI or in the Columbia/Ellicott City area. He would like
to hear from more people interested so he can get to the minimum
enrollment. If you're interested, either let Bill or myself know.

I'm finalizing details on an Embedded Linux Jumpstart session to be
held in the Washington D.C. area the week of June 27th, 2011.  I have
not yet announced this class on my website.  The tuition will be $2950
per student, with group discounts available.

This four-day class will cover in detail the most important topics
related to using Linux in embedded applications.  To make the lab
exercises even more realistic, I have incorporated hardware to control
an N-Scale model locomotive over I2C, GPIO, or any other interface the
Linux kernel supports including Ethernet and USB.  At the end of this
class, you will be well-experienced in writing complex Linux device
drivers of many types, and will be ready to take that knowledge back
to your own projects.

My graduates consistently report that this class exceeds their
expectations, and greatly improves their abilities to adapt and use
Linux in robust, real-world embedded applications.  With more than a
decade of embedded Linux experience behind me, I can provide you with
a training experience that is immediately relevant and useful---
because I use that same knowledge to succeed in my own projects.

For more information about the course outline, go here:

In addition to the knowledge gained during intensive, hands-on lab
exercises, each student goes home with the hardware they used in
class--- a $700 value.  That includes the single-board computer that
runs Linux, plus the hardware that controls the locomotive layout.
Your instructor can also provide directions to retail sources for
locomotives, track, and other items necessary to complete your own
personal setup.  :)

This class is subject to a minimum enrollment, and space is very
limited.  So please register as soon as possible!  Feel free to
contact me with any questions or comments.  And please forward this
email to anyone you know who might be interested in this class.

Kindest regards,
