Free Linux Training Material and Video Presentations

Dotted across the Internet is a wealth of free resources including papers, presentations, articles and blogs on various topics to do with Linux and programming. I thought I would share these as I come across them.

One particularly useful resource is that of Free Electrons, an organisation based in France committed to promoting and contributing to free software. They also provide Linux training and have made all their training material available on-line under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareALike 3.0 License. The material absolutely everything you’d ever need to know to become an expert in embedded Linux development. They can be downloaded here:

They also have posted recording of presentations made at various conferences such as the Embedded Linux Conference and Fosdem.

And whilst we’re talking about ELC – you can find the archives and presentation materials here:

All worthwhile reading on a rainy day :). [© 2011]
