Chances are you use Linux everyday – it’s the free open-source software that powers everything from the cellphones to super-computers, major websites like Google and Facebook to smart TVs. One area where Linux is particularly popular is in embedded electronics and that will be the focus of this introductory course. We will be using Raspberry Pi single-board computers to explore a Linux-based operating system, learning how to get around the system, basic administration, networking, remote access tools and some basic shell scripting.
