KHEM, Thanks again I had and have little or not much to work with and had/have no idea. Now I do have more to work with, especially archival. I still am none to sure where I am going with this, foreward with new vocabulary and understanding (saavy).
I am positive this all fits together with the other five and future semesters, so keep em comming, (more semesters) and keep up the good work more Continuing Education Credits.
Including the IEEE University, I see these classes as a success to date.
Ok, I think I understand now; QT is a framework to build graphical oriented applications. I think I saw other discussion about just using Eclipse CDT to build simpler applications, like command line oriented apps for the target embedded Linux. Thanks.
@KaRobotics: is it for your desktop? you can install ubuntu and boot from USB flash. its user friendly to install and use but if its for a embedded device then generate using OpenEmbedded/Yocto would be easier
@RogerCoffee QT is a graphical framework, then QTCreator is a IDE used to develop applications using QT libraries and what we learnt today was to use these to buidl applications using Yocto SDK plugged underneath the QTcreator to build applications.
I have to admit I'm a bit lost in the relationships and purposes of the SDKs, IDEs, etc. Is there an overall process flow diagram that illustrates the steps and tools used to build a application for the target embedded Linux device?
There are the cross compiler, the native applications, and the native headers for code generation. There are also the build tools such as Eclipse and QEMU. Finally, there are tools to make your life easier such as oprofile and lttng.
Hi all -Audio is live! If you don't see the audio bar at the top of the screen, please refresh your browser. It may take a couple tries. When you see the audio bar, hit the play button. If you experience audio interruptions and are using IE, try using FF or Chrome as your browser. Many people experience issues with IE. Also, make sure your flash player is updated with the current version. Some companies block live audio streams, so if that is the case for your company, the class will be archived on this page immediately following the class and you can listen then. People don't experience any issues with the audio for the archived version.
Is the reference to "application development" in the context of application programs that will run on the target embedded Linux that Yocto is used to build? If so then I assume the SDK is Eclipse based and hence it has C/C+ compilers. I suspect you will get to this in today's lecture, but what is the QT environment a plugin for Eclipse specifically focused at the embedded Linux app development?
Hi all - A little less than 30 minutes to show time! Be sure to click 'Today's Slide Deck' under Special Educational Materials above right to download the PowerPoint for today's session. Also, please click on the blue banner at the top of this page for information about the IEEE Professional Dev Hours to read all o fthe important information if you haven't already. And finally, don't forget to fill out the course evaluation form within two weeks from today (link is above). It's a requirement for the IEEE hours.
Hi everyone - Welcome day 5! We'll be starting in one hour. The streaming audio player will appear at the top of this web page when the show starts at 2 PM Eastern time today. When you see it, click on the play button to start the audio. Note however, that some companies block live audio streams. If when the show starts, the audio bar doesn't appear or you don't hear any audio, try refreshing your browser. If that doesn't work, try using Firefox or Google Chrome as your browser. Some users experience audio interruptions with IE. Also, make sure your flash player is updated with the current version. If that doesn't work, the class will be archived immediately following our live taping. You shouldn't experience any problems with the audio when listening on-demand.
In many engineering workplaces, there’s a generational conflict between recent engineering graduates and older, more experienced engineers. However, a recent study published in the psychology journal Cognition suggests that both may have something to learn from another group: 4 year olds.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
