UC Berkeley Extension

For software programmers and developers worried about layoffs and job security in these tough economic times, the answer may be as clear as the screen on your cell phone. That's because manufacturers of small consumer equipment like cell phones and PDAs need programmers trained in embedded Linux to hand-tune the product's software code.

"Companies such as QUALCOMM, IBM, HP, Nokia, Brocade Communications, and others are looking for Linux developers who can work with embedded systems," said Dr. Kevin Dankwardt, chair of the Education committee of the Embedded Linux consortium and a contributing editor to LinuxDevices.com. "Linux has become the market leader in embedded operating systems for feature-rich devices--everything from cell phones, personal digital assistants, medical devices and industrial automation solutions," said Dankwardt.

UC Berkeley Extension is offering four embedded Linux courses taught by Dr. Dankwardt at its Redwood City campus beginning January 26th.

"These are short, intensive courses designed to provide software developers with very efficient, accelerated learning," said UC Extension Program Director Jim Connor. "The courses are very hands-on with a wealth of practical exercises providing a rapid ramp-up with embedded Linux."

UC Berkeley Extension is offering a suite of Linux courses designed to provide a fast path for UNIX and desktop Linux programmers to migrate their skills to the embedded market, according to Connor. UC Berkeley Extension will run courses in Linux Application Program Design and Development, and Linux Device Driver Issues Design and Development January 26-30. It's also offering a two-day course in Real-time Linux Design Development and Measurement starting January 31 and Embedded Linux Design and Development February 2-4. All classes will be held at Extension's Redwood City Campus.

Founded in 1891, UC Berkeley Extension is the continuing education branch of the University of California Berkeley. Today, Extension offers 1,500 courses each year, including online courses, along with more than 30 certificate and professional programs.
