Free twice/month e-newsletter about embedded systems, now in its 23th year. No hype, just down-to-earth technical talk about how to build embedded systems - both firmware and hardware.42,000+ engineers subscribe. Muse subscribers are eligible for our monthly giveaways: oscilloscopes, debugging tools, etc.

"One of the first questions we ask prospective employees is if they read The Embedded Muse," - Mike Katz, Northrup Grumman.

"We've had several excellent candidates from The Embedded Muse job ads, including a few hires. You do better than recruiters!" Andy Kunz, Team Spektrum

Kaiwan N Billimoria has a new book out named Linux Kernel Programming, and it's a heck of a volume. At 741 pages it is very comprehensive. The book is very well-written and Kaiwan makes working on the kernel crystal clear, starting with basic concepts and giving detailed examples. If you've never built the kernel he goes through the process step by step. His follow-on book Linux Kernel Programming Part 2 - Char Device Drivers and Kernel Synchronization is about creating user-kernel interfaces, work with peripheral I/O, and handle hardware interrupts. Kaiwan kindly sent both books for this month's giveaway.
