Learning by doing
Aristotle once said, "For the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them". So true. Let's practice some learning by doing.
Not reinventing the wheel
We will use a lot of material already available from Xilinx, Avnet and other companies. We will try to find solutions to our problems by searching on internet.
A picture is worth a thousand words
I will use a lot of pictures in my blog. I think picture many times illustrates much better what is going on in my experiments.
An interactive meeting place
A would like the blog to be interactive and not a one-way document. I invite all of you, newbies to professionals to ask questions, make comments and suggestions for subjects you are missing.
It wouldn't make sense writing a tutorial like this and not using Avnet's and Xilinx's in-depth knowledge about their products found in their web pages, user guides and other documents. I would like to thank Avnet and Xilinx for allowing me to use images and text from their documents and to link to their web pages.
Here is a link to the Xilinx documentation library.
Xilinx provides recorded E-Learning for courses at our convenience. They are available at no charge.
Subscribe for FREE to the new Xcell Journal Digital. Here are links to old XCell magazines.
There are a number of dedicated search engines, searching for FPGA information. FPGASeek is one ChipHit is another.
Support, Answers Database
You may find an answer to your question in the Xilinx support page.
Xilinx provides targeted, high-quality education services designed by experts in programmable logic design, and delivered by Xilinx-qualified trainers. They offer instructor-led classes (both in person and online) and recorded e-learning for self-paced training. Some courses are completely free! Doulos is running a 3 days course called "ARM Cortex-A9 for Zynq System Design".
To post a question to Xilinx you should use WebCase.
The goal of the Xilinx Wiki site is to provide technical information and collaborate with the community on Open Source projects that are being done in Xilinx. Xilinx also provides a Git repository to help with open source development and collaboration, and all sources can be downloaded from the GIT repository
Here is Xilinx own blog, Xcell Daily Blog.
Xilinx University Program
The Xilinx University Program (XUP) includes academics from top-tiered universities across the world. XUP provides top-quality teaching materials that are easily accessible to professors to incorporate into their curriculum. XUP offers workshops to professors and academic staff at no cost. These workshops are conducted by Xilinx as well as application area experts, providing in-depth practical and theoretical aspect of FPGA technology.
What to expect from this blog
You are welcome to follow my blog. I hope it will give you a head start in using the Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC. Here is what I plan to do first.
Just one last thing

Glad to hear you are back to blogging, especially now that you are using your ZedBoard!
Your post above has some great resources for new ZedBoard users to follow. I wanted to also point out our community website www.zedboard.org as well.
Keep up the great work, we are excited to hear about what you are working on.
