I didn't know where to put this but this seemed to be the best place. I took an internship this summer and found out that I will be doing embedded development in C/C++ and Linux for phones(land line voip stuff). This is bad for me since I have always been an above the operating system, higher level programmer so i'm getting a little worried. I really know almost nothing about embedded development. I will definitely be scouring google but I was wondering if there were any good books for an introduction into embedded development that I could check out.

Any hints would be appreciated.

Thanks

the beauty about internships is they don't expect you to know a whole lot, and will teach you what to do.

i'd be pretty stoked if i were you. this is a great opportunity.

I am excited, nervous, but excited. I really want to actually do something and really get my hands dirty.

Well good luck and I hope you need a lot of soap this summer.

So should I expect to be doing a lot of system calls and muti threaded apps? I would assume no to the threads because of the lack of system resources. I'm just trying to get some keywords I can throw into Google. Embedded linux development doesn't really produce the best tutorials/lessons. BTW thanks for all the help so far to everyone.
