TechLab

BeagleBoard.org® PocketBeagle® TechLab Cape was designed from lessons-learned in teaching hundreds of individuals getting their first introduction to programming, Linux, and ultimately hacking the kernel itself. TechLab has taken inspiration from the GHI Electronics BrainPad as well as the QWERTY Embedded Design BaconBits Cape, maintaining complete pinout compatibility with BaconBits such that users can follow along with the excellent introduction to Linux kernel programming provided in the Embedded Apprentice Linux Engineer seminars and useful for associated follow-on training available from The Linux Foundation .
