  • Video about embedded code debugging

    My latest video blog is now available. This time I am looking at debugging techniques for embedded code. You can see the video here or here:

    Future video blogs will continue to look at topics of interest to embedded software developers. Suggestions fo…

  • First Man

    I would not describe myself as a “movie buff”, but we do go to see a great many movies. The reason is that we are members of the local theater, which means that we pay an annual fee and get a certain number of tickets for drama performances etc. We also get a pair of […]

  • Getting it live

    One thing that I enjoy about writing [mostly] is reading stuff that I have written many years before. Sometimes I wonder what I was thinking of! Other times, I am pleased to see that my views and tastes are either unchanged or have just gently evolved. I wrote about my views on live music about […]

  • USB 3 webinar questions and answers

    We run a regular program of embedded software webinars. On Wednesday 17 October, the topic was USB, with a focus on USB 3. If you missed it, you can see a recording here.

  • Just have to scoot

    My first visit to California – first trip to the US – was in 1986. My culture shock was immense. I expected to be in a country that spoke my language and was only a bit different because they had strange money and drove on the wrong side of the road. I was very wrong […]

This event takes place 6-7 November in Kista, a suburb of Stockholm, Sweden. I will have a busy time there … This conference has been a regular trip for me, as […]

  • Internet security … or not

    We are all told to be careful about Internet “hygiene”. There are cybercriminals out there who want to gain access to our systems for a variety of reasons, all of which are bad. The advice to take care is sound, but some of the details are questionable and many people have somewhat misplaced priorities. I […]

  • Arm TechCon 2018

    As I previously mentioned, the conference season is under way. My next stop is this week, when I am speaking at Arm TechCon 2018 in San Jose, California. This annual event has steadily grown in size and scope over the years, earning itself a firm place in the calendar of embedded systems events … I […]

  • Ongoing review

    I am not a big fan of New Year’s resolutions. Even though I think of the New Year as being a time to look forward, I am not sure about it being a time to instigate any radical changes [in the middle of winter]. However, late last year I read about the idea of drafting […]
