Practical Linux Programming book. Written for engineers and students, Practical Linux Programming: Device Drivers, Embedded Systems, and the Internet is about designing and developing embedded systems, using Internet technology as a user interface.

Marty Leisner has been using Linux for the last 7 years, GNU software for 15 years and UNIX for 20 years.

I became quite curious when I first saw the title of this book. And this book discusses writing device drivers? I was scratching my head by this point. It seems important spaces were deleted randomly all over the book. Marty Leisner has been using Linux for the last 7 years, GNU software for 15 years and UNIX for 20 years. He's a professional programmer, often building embedded systems, hopefully in the future with Linux.

Students will learn about GPIO programming, PCI device programming, USB and Network driver programming for Linux. This course is designed for beginners in Embedded Systems or Device driver programming. However, Intermediates can also learn from this course. Students will be able to configure and build Linux kernel for x86 and Embedded devices. Students will learn about Synchronization in Linux kernel. Synchronization is very import aspect of kernel space programming. This course includes 33 videos of various lengths with 6 sections.

Linux is becoming the OS of choice for embedded system designers and engineers, due to its real-time power and flexibility. Written for engineers and students, Practical Linux Programming: Device Drivers, Embedded Systems, and the Internet is about designing and developing embedded systems, using Internet technology as a user interface. The book emphasizes the use of three different technologies for embedded system design and development: the Web, the Linux kernel, and SQL queries. From a software design point of view, device driver design, interprocess communication usage, Perl programming, shell programming, HTML tags, and SQL queries are covered in detail. The examples demonstrate the guidelines for designing an embedded system that requires interaction of different software modules and show how an operating system like Linux helps glue your software modules together. The book is presented as a tutorial for students and engineers who wish to learn the process of designing an embedded system application using Linux as the real-time operating system and the Internet as the user interface.

Update to my reveiw: This book is now out of date. I hope the author will write an updated new edition.

This book will be useful to you as a beginner lab book for Linux. There are a few typos and the material is becoming outdated. But that is the nature of Linux in that anything written will soon be out of date by the time it is published.

One of the things I've noticed is that a lot of people can install Linux on their home systems, but then don't know what to do with it once it is there. This book can be usefully used as a lab book that gives you projects to work on and working though the typos and out dated material gives you a more in depth understanding of how Linux and the related tools work. It is the problem solving ability that will help you the most. (I have never seen a computer book that was completely up to date, error free, and completely told me the steps to do what I wanted to do.)

I recommend this book as a lab book to be used along with other books to demonstrate the multiple uses and capabilities of a Linux system.

So bottom line is:
If you are looking for an unchallenging step by step cook book, this is not the book for you.
If you are looking for a challenging lab book at the beginner level that shows you an overview of Linux systems and related tools work and that will develop your problem solving abilities, then you will find this book interesting.

This book does have lots of typo's. you will find it somewhat frustrating.BUT- do not worry. Once you are familiar with Linux then you can overcome them. What the books strong point is:

It shows what commands/files/procedures you need to use to set up a linux embedded system.That alone is worth its Used price. You will need another such as the linux desk reference to get around better.but really, this is not so bad of a book as to be forgotten. You might consider it a good mid level computer science elective type book that needs someone like an instructor(or a google search engine) to clear up certain issues.

There aren't enough politically correct words to describe how awful this book was. I wasted money on books before, and this is another to add to the pile. Jim Carey (as Ace Ventura) might say "Editor's Mmmuch?"
The type-o's in the book are one thing, but the amount are strictly appaullyng (<-purpose). I couldn't recommend this book to a guru nor a beginner. It takes a spreadshot approach to a web server setup, and the postgresql setup section didn't work on RedHat platforms 6.x through 8.x .
You /will/ have an awful time with this onslaught of what more practiced authors only joke about. I think you get my drift, don't buy it. Sadly, i did.

This is a worst programming book I have ever seen. I wonder how it can be published.

terrible...look at my review on
the linux journal.

My review was too generous -- should have just said:
"feh, phooey"

Typos and mistakes all over the book. Beginners will find it frustrated.
