9/8/2017 12:15:514Not a major issue but maybe some labs (flash filesystems, third party libraries) could be a bit shorter while still leading to the right conclusionFrom my point of view, the training covers all aspects that you need to build an embedded Linux system5Learned a lot about Linux systems more generally5DEFINITELY knowledgeable.
Very good teaching skills as well.
5I appreciated the right balance bewteen suggested tools and open-mindedness553Not applicable (I did not organize anything)5My general understanding of the Linux system (embedded AND desktop) definitely increased. I already knew vaguely about most notions (bootloader, host/target management,...) and tools (U-boot, gdb,...) but everything fits together now.575Thanks of the quality of this training, I think I will dig into the kernel development training by myself5Bootloader (I love low level :) )
Kernel (I expected to clarify many things and it did)
Building blocks (it really helps to understand the system as a whole)
Flash filesystems (because of the difficulty - but interesting)Not applicable - My management made the decisionFriendNot interestedAvailable to all questions - including beyond the lab exercises55They really help to understand the goal of each toolIt was the right balance for me - some of them were tough but nothing overly difficult55From less than 100 km / 60 miles
9/8/2017 12:21:453Duration of courses is well-balanced : short enough not to be too exhausted, long enough to practice a little.The training course covered a lot of topics on how a Linux system works and how to use cross-compilation tool-chains. It perfectly met our needs though the great number of topics prevented us from digging deeper.4The lecture documents are useful in helping us to learn about Linux embedded systems.5The instructor was able to respond to all questions, while giving simple answers to make them understandable. He also has a wide expertise on the subject. 4The instructor held a very lively oral presentation, constantly having a verbal exchange with the audience.5Room size and environment are peculiar to our company so the rating is only about equipment which was of good quality.5Again, rating is only about the equipment furnished (boards, wires and adapters), which were of good quality.4A well-balanced schedule with labs and oral presentation interleaved.45This course is of a great help in understanding how a Linux system work : how it starts, compiles, links libraries, install packages and so on. I suppose it is of great added-value in our job as we are using Linux system and are going to use Linux embedded system everyday.6The missing point is only due to the important amount of slides that prevents the training course from having a perfect rating.5Didn't take the time to look at the proposed training courses but will definitely think of Free Electrons for further training courses if needed.4Labs.Too many consecutive slides sometimes.Not applicable - My management made the decisionFree Electrons chosen by my managementTechnical supportThe instructor was fully available to help us get through labs and eventual problems encountered. He always came up with both a solution and an explanation to the problem.55There's nothing better than practicing to learn and the labs are well designed.Labs perfectly balanced, both when starting to learn and when wanting to dig deeper thanks to the "Going further" section.33Again, time allocated for practicing was well-balanced. Besides, the instructor dynamically adjusted the time needed to complete each lab.From less than 100 km / 60 miles
9/8/2017 12:22:1533Maybe slides could be different from the Embedded Linux Training pdf. 53Maybe he could have done more repetitions of the key informations555446Once again, I would recommand to change the slide of the presentation because they are too heavy (lots of text). Maybe you could insist more on the possibility for us to interrupt the lesson to ask questions. 54The theorical explanation of the different blocks which make a embedded system ( boot loader, kernel, rootfs, lib, init file ...)Everything was interesting and complementary, even the UBI part thanks to the instructor patience.Not applicable - My management made the decisionFree Electrons chosen by my managementTechnical supportHe took a lot of time to re explain me the key elements of the lecture document. 5533From less than 100 km / 60 miles
