Linux Development EssentialsA Two Day Course
The intent is to
provide background that will be of general interest to all
Linux based developers.
Students should be prepared for some lengthy programming exercises.
This course provides substantial practice with key tools and capabilities available to developers of Linux based applications and system software. The course shows attendees how to use development and debugging tools and how to make use of many Linux system calls and library routines.
Attendees will spend approximately 50 percent of the class time actually gaining hands-on experience with these topics.
Effectively use a variety of tools for Linux application development.
To give you practical experience in using Linux system calls and library routines.
Compile programs with variety of options.
Use GDB to debug applications.
Use electric fence, gprof, gcov, and other tools for debugging and performance analysis.
Write a simple shell.
Create socket base applications.
Attendees will learn:
How to use GNU tools for compiling and debugging.
How to use an integrated development environment.
How to use system calls for such things as inter-process communication, interacting with the file system.
Who Should Attend:
The course is for programmers who are new to Unix and Linux. Attendees should have experience with C and be able to perform basic Unix commands.
Duration: Two days. (9AM - 5PM)
The workshop materials include a comprehensive student workbook . The workbook contains all of the slides used in the course as well as hands-on lab exercises.
The workshop makes use of standard PC's with a desktop Linux distribution for development. Usually, Fedora Core 3.
