It is no secret that of all the design steps involved in developing an embedded application, debugging is probably the most crucial and where the most amount of time is spent. Code debugging is more a learned experience than anything else. The more embedded applications you code, build and debug, the better you get at it. Newer tools may give you greater visibility but you still need to know what to look for and what a potential issue might manifest itself as.
In the past, I have hinted at the in-house expertise of all-things embedded, especially open source software, here at Mentor Embedded. One of our resident debugging experts is Stan Shebs. Stan has been a maintainer of the GNU debugger GDB since 1994 and sure knows a thing or two about embedded debugging.
I am excited to announce that Stan has agreed to share his years of experience with us via an upcoming Google Hangout event (June 27) on Best Practices for Debugging Embedded Software!
There has already been a record number of registrants for this event so far. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to hear from Stan himself as he delves into the forensics of embedded debugging. Click here to register for the event.
