we were 6 in that session, I guess it is OK, may be it would be not efficient enough with more ressources

|6/14/2013 18:16:15||3||Several real world questions remain unclear:|
What linux kernel/distribution to use for a given platform?
How to find out features/modules allready implemented vs. writing them from scratch?
Module/driver hierarchy ink.. driver framework has not been clearly understood. Very important topic but the conceptual part was not given attention, we went straight to looking at low level code examples.
|4||Slides could benefit from less text and more graphics. It is no very easy to read the text while listening to the instructor. More visual diagrams would make it easier to comprehend. Each topic should start (and not end:-) with a graphic to help grasp the concept and then follow to code examples etc. Using text to explain concepts is useful when reading the slides after the lecture, but not during the lecture itself.||4||4||5||4||4||Sometimes instructor would go in more details than needed to understand the topic.||5||5||5||4||By learning more one often ends up with more questions than answers, but this is regarding all new topics, so nothing negative regarding this course.||4||4||6||3||Using Buildroot etc..||3||labs writing drivers||some parts of the lectures (especially in the final day) were too detailed and hard to grasp.||Geographical proximity (public sessions only), Trainer, Language, Cost||Internet search engines||Board Support Package development: make Linux / Android support your new hardware, Real-time: implementation and bug fixing, Build environment deployment and support, Root filesystem design and development, Technical support, Investigating and fixing bugs||5||5||Would be great to also try DMA and driver frameworks.||4||2||Maybe labs should be more strictly managed by the instructor. |
Instructor says " Do this step.." giving 5 minutes to complete and giving the answer after 5 minutes.
Then "Do this step..." 10 minutes, give answer.
This way we could cover much more material and not lose time on some minor problems which were not crucial but timeconsuming.
