Description

Have you ever wanted to create your very own Linux kernel module and start writing kernel code?

Well this step by step course is designed to teach you just that, we start off by installing all the dependencies we need, then we create the simplest kernel module we can a "Hello World" module that just prints "Hello World" from kernel space.

Finally we create a character device module that allows user programs to send data to us and read data from us. Think "/dev/random"

During the time I taught myself all of this many times I found articles from 2004 and they were outdated, this makes kernel development very difficult but I learnt a trick to make it all easier which I share in this course.

This course is designed to clear up all the misconceptions every detail of what we are doing is explained in depth and nothing is left out

Taught by an expert that that has created kernel modules professionally in the work place. Primarily virtual file system modules
