About this Specialization
Applied Learning Project
This course will focus heavily on designing concurrent software for embedded systems applications using the Linux operating system. At the end of this course, students will be able to...
Configure, build and deploy the Linux kernel and root filesystem from source.
Build their own Embedded Linux distribution using Buildroot or Yocto frameworks.
Use System Programming concepts to develop application software for Embedded Devices, including File I/O, Threading, Signals, and time related POSIX APIs.
Write software for inter-thread and inter-process communication using sockets and signals
Debug concurrent software applications with command line GDB, Valgrind, and other software tools for debug, profile and tracing.
Create a custom Linux Device Driver
Understand Linux Driver related development topics, including debugging techniques, concurrency techniques, timing, memory allocation.
Showcase their knowledge in a final project which demonstrates course concepts on hardware.
How the Specialization Works
A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.
Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.
Earn a Certificate
When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.
