Questo libro l'ho acquistato come strumento utile per raggruppare tutte le info necessarie per lavorare sul Beaglebone black, info che in rete sono molto frammentate, tipico del mondo open. Per chi inizia è ancora più utile, in quanto fornisce elementi fondamentali sia di elettronica che su Linux. Per chi già sa come muoversi molto utile il supporto online sul sito e i video sul canale youtube. Consigliatissimo!!

5.0 su 5 stelle One of the best all-around learning books I've ever seen on an embedded system. 26 dicembre 2014
Di Tom Betka - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Wow. Where to begin with this book? So much to say...

Here's my first thought: If you are looking for a simplified, superficial and less-than-complete review of all-things Beaglebone, then do not buy this book. For everyone else, this book is a MUST HAVE!


I got the Kindle version of this book almost two weeks ago, and have spent 6-8 hours per day reading it and working on the examples--and I am still only in Chapter 8. There are a LOT of examples, and they are generally very thorough. Dr. Molloy has also created a companion website for this book (who else does that, btw?), and I've regularly been posting any little errata that I find to the page for the appropriate chapter. There have been very minor errata found thus far, which is incredible enough given the complexity of the subject matter. Therefore you really are only limited by your own effort, in terms of what you can learn from this book. I could write an extremely lengthy review about this book and go on and on and on about how it really IS the definitive "How-To" book on all-things Beaglebone because, well, it is. But until you get the thing and start working through it for yourself, you wouldn't appreciate half of what I could say. However I think there are two very important points that I should discuss in this review.

First, this is not just a book about using the Beaglebone platform. Sure, that's what the title says it's about--and that's indeed the theme to the book. However this book is about so much more than *just* using the BBB: It's about how to work efficiently with an embedded Linux device, and how to master said device. Dr. Molloy's teaching style is easily one of the best I've ever seen in the field of Computer Science, and the order and flow of this book is very intuitive. This will readily allow you to build on previous chapters and enhance your learning as you move through the book. In addition he teaches you some basic electronics, so that you can work with the BBB device safely and not damage the hardware (or the underlying Linux operating system). When you consider the breadth of material necessary to work with such a platform as the BBB device, it really is a huge undertaking to cover in just one book--but at no time did I feel lost or overwhelmed by the material.

The other thing that must be said about this book is that is is NOT just a book about programming. Yeah sure, that stuff is covered. But a monkey could write C/C++ code, given enough time and the proper incentive. It wouldn't necessarily be *good* code--but I've met some humans who can't write good C/C++ code either, and they profess to be well above the monkey in the grand scheme of things. Rather this book really is about how to be a Computer Scientist in the area of Embedded Systems. It's about how to take a well-engineered and very capable embedded hardware platform and use it with an unbelievably powerful (and immensely configurable) operating system, and master their combined use. In other words--it's about thinking like an actual Computer Scientist is expected to think in the real world. Also, the book is not about just loading some code examples into your text editor or IDE, running them...and then telling yourself: "Yup, I got it...that's easy. I can do that, no problem!" Certainly you could do that, but you'd only be cheating yourself. There are way too many of those types of programmers out there that do just that, but then don't even know how to log in to a device remotely, set up a proper tool-chain or (God forbid) have to debug a non-working system. But with this book you are exposed to all of those things--all in the first few chapters!

So in conclusion, I'll say one last thing: There are several other books on the market about the Beaglebone/Beaglebone Black devices, and they are generally very good. I believe that I have them all for the most part. However those books are NOT this book. This book is like those books, on steroids...times 10. If those books are the mathematical equivalent of Trigonometry and College Algebra, then this book is Calculus 3 *and* Differential Equations...all rolled into one. Yes, it really is that good. But hey, don't believe me. Instead, just have a look inside the book and judge for yourself. Better yet, buy the Kindle version and go through Part 1. The knowledge you will gain in just those five chapters alone will easily be worth the $23 you spend on the Kindle version of this book.

I have no affiliation with Texas Instruments or with Dr. Molloy. However I have been following his YouTube tutorials for over two years now and am very grateful that he has taken the time to develop this entire learning package (book, website, video demonstrations, etc). Using this book my knowledge of embedded Linux has grown by leaps and bounds, in just the past two weeks!

5.0 su 5 stelle Helped me finish a PRU-based project quickly 24 settembre 2016
Di M. Valerio - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This is an incredible book. I started down a high-priority project at work thinking that I could use a Raspberry Pi to do some high-speed GPIO, but after researching the capabilities, discovered that the BeagleBone Black would be a better approach because the TI chip includes 2 PRU (programmable realtime units). I needed to ramp up quickly so I purchased this book, and boy was I glad that I did. I could not have completed my design and implementation in such a short time without the thorough examples in the book, on the author's GitHub page, and on the book's website. Wow. That is so much useful information, collated in one place, it's amazing.

While I have used Linux in the past and have done a small amount of embedded programming, I was able to grok the important parts of this book in a weekend, and pretty much jumped straight to the last chapter on the PRU to the point that I've almost worn it out and the pages are almost falling out. Various other tables and figures (pinouts, mode map, address maps) are bookmarked for constant reference.

The author clearly has a wealth of practical experience with the BeagleBone Black, and I'm very thankful that he decided to share his experience in this book. Some of the most helpful sections were actually the shortest - side points like "if you need to peek/poke memory addresses, go download devmem2 and run it, and customize it to do what you need", or "btw, there is a PRU debugger called prudebug, go try it out".

I can't recommend this book enough if you're just getting started with a BeagleBone Black like I was.

5.0 su 5 stelle Not your average Getting Started with X Board book 17 giugno 2016
Di Raul Ocampo - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I came to this book the back way. I was looking for sample beaglebone code in C and I found the author's github with the example programs from the book along with revisions and supplemental programs. I noticed that the author was very responsive answering questions about the code. I know enough that between the files on github and the back and forth with questions I was able to work along each chapter but I wanted to support what the author is doing.

Now that I have the book I can tell it's a rare treat; the illustrations are beautiful the writing is clear. I look forward to the authors future work.

5.0 su 5 stelle An engineering textbook masterpiece 28 marzo 2015
Di Merlin - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This is one of the best technical books I have read in 30 years. It should be used as curriculum at school, and maybe it is at Derek's college. I have been using BeagleBone since 2012, often in real world applications. Therefore, I was very familiar with Derek's youtube videos that often got me started on specific topics about the board features.
But this book goes way beyond the mere usage of a product, it's a full multidisciplinary workshop on electronics, physical computing, networking, and process control. As efficacy, I put this guy at the same level as a W.Bolton or a S.Gibilisco, plus the monumental collateral (and free) material posted on his website and youtube channel.
Were I 20 years younger, I would spend a semester in Dublin just to go to Derek's classes...
5.0 su 5 stelle What I love about his techniques is that he uses real programming ... 2 settembre 2016

Derek Molloy is the BEAGLEBONE Master! I have been following Derek for a few years now and have worked out some of his examples in the past...What I love about his techniques is that he uses real programming paradigms instead of skirting it with scripts, python and other simpler programming techniques! If you are serious, you do it in C, write your own drivers, etc. That is the approach I like the most even though it is more complicated. I actually started with Beaglebone in baremetal. Very little code was available other than the SDK which is available from TI that can be quite mind boggling to get going...I wrote my own extensions to code sourcery to work from CCS compiler, so I can use my own JTAGs. I got everything to work just fine. Derek takes the route of programming via the Linux OS, which is a bit different than baremetal...The nicest thing you can do in baremetal is perhaps get as close to a a realtime, stripped down version of an OS as you can get, using something like FreeRTOS. There are a few ports that I've seen still in their infancy...Either way, in the Linux environment you have to go through the peripheral memory maps and make use of the drivers to get things done. There is no better book available that teaches this approach! Good luck getting a handle on the internals of the kernel and working with the driver layers otherwise! This book does an excellent job revealing those secrets and it is a humbling task in my opinion and a bit of Linux tribal knowledge that is revealed here...If you like Linux or wished you knew how to access peripherals through the driver layer, PRU's and so on, get this book on Kindle...It might save a few bucks too!
