Set aside an hour on September 11th or 12th and learn how to debug those complex Linux applications without leaving your desk. Linux application tool vendor MontaVista has scheduled a live online 'webinar' to show off the debugging features of its DevRocket integrated development environment (IDE) for Linux. It says the IDE will help developers build better Linux applications and deliver them to market quickly.

MontaVista specialises in tools to build embedded Linux apps for devices such as mobile phones and vehicle navigation systems and reckons the quality of embedded Linux applications is generally poor. The hour-long online session will show developers how to get the bugs out of embedded applications - and how to optimise them too.

MontaVista says you'll see how DevRocket is used to debug an embedded Linux application, identify memory problems, find hotspots in the application code and eliminate programming errors. The session also includes a live question-and-answer session so developers can discuss DevRocket's features and other embedded application issues with the presenters.

DevRocket 5.0 has evolved from the open-source Eclipse environment and comes as a set of Eclipse plug-ins. MontaVista offers the tool as a component of both its platform and its application developers tool kit.

Eager Linux developers can register here for the session according to their time zone.

The focus on embedded Linux applications is timely. ABI Research forecasts that Linux will become the dominant operating system for 'smart' devices by 2012 with more than 31 per cent of the market. ®
