I'm not sure the OP could absorb that much info that quickly.

The OP needs to select his hardware, learn the peripheral interfaces, design a 
consistent hardware control interface, then design a consistent user-space 
interface that presents the necessary APIs to control user access to 

Beyond that, the OP needs to select a language and learn to write in that 
language lucidly and clrealy so that he can return to old work weeks, months 
and even years later and figure out what he was thinking and doing in the 

Then he needs to select a programming language and learn it inside, outside, 
upside and downside.

Next he needs to choose his 'best' methods, practices and procedures and learn 
them from every which way.

chooses, because the way will be fairly clear.
