[ece497] Beagle-based Embedded Class

The purpose of this email is to announce that I'm once again teaching
a 32-bit Embedded Linux class based on the BeagleBoard [1]. I'm
teaching as open-source as I can and have have posted many of course
materials on eLinux.org [2].

I'm always open to ideas on what topics to include in the class and
suggestions for interesting course projects. For example I just
picked up a couple Kinects [3] and hope to have a couple of teams
doing interesting things with them.

I'm one of the students in the class and I'm really looking forward to
building up my embedded linux knowledge so I can help the BeagleBoard
project in the future.

Hi - I am one of the students in the class.

The purpose of this email is to announce that I’m once again teaching
a 32-bit Embedded Linux class based on the BeagleBoard [1]. I’m
teaching as open-source as I can and have have posted many of course
materials on eLinux.org [2].

Hi Mark,

Thanks for using elinux.org to host this material again. If there’s anything I can do as the elinux.org admin to help, please feel free to let me know.

Hi Guys,

I have been working with the kinect and beagleboard for a while now. Just got the xM going with the kinect. Since libfreenect is now included in angstrom, this is quite easy. Drop me a note if you are interested in making a GLES client for the kinect - http://whatnicklife.blogspot.com/2011/03/kinect-beagleboard-xm.html.

Cheers,

whatnick.

I am one of the students in the class. After learning the ropes, I look forward to seeing what type of visual, audio, or 3D processing the Beagle can handle.

Hey, Im yet another student in the class. I decided to take it after
working with a DaVinci DM365 Evaluation Module for my senior project.
I realized just how much I didn't know about this area, so it will be
nice to fill in those gaps somewhat.

I'm a student in the course.

-Mike Fuson

I'm in this class as well. I'm looking foward to doing something with
the DSP on the board.

Mike Fuson

Well…are the classes going to start?? or they have already started ? or they’ve already finished?

We just started the this past week.

I am a student in this course planning to explore a project using the
Kinect.

I'm one of the students. My motivations for being in this class are
largely similar to Brian Hulette's (previous post), as I was working
on the same senior project with him.

Hello,

I am a student in the class as well. I am a Junior Computer
Engineering major and I am looking forward to putting my knowledge of
Linux to the test.

-Sam Allen

Hi all-

I am also one of the students in the class. My main interest is learning more about the Beagle Board as a whole.

Hey everyone, I'm another student in the class; my name is William
Gerth and I'm a senior computer engineering major at Rose-Hulman. I'm
really interested in using the Beagle for audio/video processing, or
for augmented reality stuff like Project Jarvis. If I turn out to be
savvy enough, I may see about implementing Archos' software on the
Beagle via the Open AOS project.

Hello, I'm also in the Beagleboard class. Very much excited to expand
my knowledge about how linux runs on non-desktop environments and how
to customize it and run different devices from the Beagleboard.
