Well it's finally done. The second edition of Embedded Linux Primer was completed last month, and should be on store shelves by mid-November 2010. It's already listed on Amazon.com.
Thanks to all those who supported the 1st edition.
I recently revived a life-long hobby. I was first licensed as a Ham Radio operator in December of 1972, a few weeks after my 13th birthday. Then, as now, I loved to tinker with electronics and build stuff from scratch. I earned my Amateur Extra license at age 16, and still use that call today: K1AY. I was licensed as DA1WD during the three years that I lived near Munich, Germany as a United States Army technical specialist.
This is a placeholder for information related to Embedded Linux training.
I am considering developing a series of training "webinars" having general interest to embedded Linux developers. My current thinking is to start with short howto series, with examples of flash layout, MTD configuration, multi-media application usage, performance tuning, debugging, fast boot, and many other topics. These would be presentation-style, with audio and slide-ware, each maybe 45 minutes in length, covering single topics of interest.

There are several things you can do here.
Here's a short list of some useful and interesting performance benchmarks used in Linux:
From my colleage Ned Miljevic:
Here is a Gstreamer pipeline to play your favorite ogg file on Beagle board using gstreamer and alsa.
$ gst-launch filesrc location="your_ogg_file_path" ! oggdemux ! vorbisdec ! audioconvert ! alsasink
maybe audioconvert not necesaary, didn't have time to find out :)
This is a lot easier than trying to get it to work through PulseAudio, as I did before, and works much more reliably. Gstreamer includes a jackaudiosink plugin in the gstreamer-plugins-bad package, though it won't show up in sound properties without a little hacking.
First you need some stuff. Before that disable 'esd software mixing' in the Sounds tab of gnome-sound-properties (system->preferences->sound). Get some ladspa plugins, jack-rack, jack.plumbing, the bad plugins, patchage to see that everything works, and of course jackd (make sure you have universe/multiverse enabled):
