LLLP Meeting 0x05

Hi Folks,

I would like to make a presentation about device driver programming using a small project I started recently just for fun, it is called LLKDD (Learning Linux Kernel Device Drivers).

It is hosted on my github's profile:
https://github.com/rafaelnp

You can visit it anytime and take a look, play with it and take part as well.

I am searching a place to make the presentation in June and as soon as I have it, I shall publish here. If your company is willing to host the event, please let me know and contact me.

I hope you can hope join and share you knowledge with us :)

I would like to thank the Stefan and the Netlight Consulting GmbH for allowing us to use their presentation room.

You can found the exact coordinates here:

    I forgot to mention on the presentation: If you want to follow what I am doing at the LLKDD project you can click on the watch button at the upper right side in the project page (Assuming that you have a Github Account). If you have any question or doubt about the project, don't hesitate to contact and ask ;-)

    Big thanks to Rafael for sharing information on your project!

    This is the training material I said yesterday I find useful to learn about linux drivers:

    I went through the linux driver course with a Beaglebone Black and I enjoyed it a lot.

    Hi everybody,

    You can download the book "Linux Device Drivers 3rd Edition" on PDF format here:

    https://lwn.net/Kernel/LDD3/

    It is a very good book about the theme.

    Do you have any idea what kind of device you'd like to support as an example? I may or may not be able to provide a venue and some pizza, but I need some additional information.

      My pet project is still in the very beginning. So far my focus is in the Kernel device drivers concepts/architecture (like sysfs, kobj, buses), and APIs, in order to break the initial inertia in the development process. Suggestions are welcome.

      Hi Nils,

      Sorry for the incomplete response. First of all, thanks for your offer. I shall send you a pvt message to talk about the organization and more details. I have so far developed 4 device drivers examples ( I am finishing the fourth one :)), I would like to show you all, illustrating the main concepts and they get complex incrementally. At least in the beginning, the main point is to document the development process in a way it makes easier to grasp the big amount of information and demystify the kernel/driver development as something "very hard", or "it is not for me, too much complicated".
