- Abstract: The discussion will focus on the book "Patterns in the Machine,
A Software Engineering Guide to Embedded Development" by John Taylor and Wayne
Taylor. From the Introduction to the book:
This book is about how to be a genius - or, at least, how to design and
implement software that is pretty damn smart. This book is about how to build
things like automated unit tests and functional simulators which professionals
in the embedded systems space hardly ever do because they feel there isn't
enough time or there aren't enough resources in their programming environment
or because there's never been hardware like theirs on the planet before. A lot
of developers think it's unwise to write extensive code before the hardware is
working, or they assume that their code can't be repurposed for a completely
different hardware platform without massive rework. But this is simply not the
case. In this book, I'll show you how to apply some software engineering
principles and best practices - what I call patterns - to develop software in
an efficient, sustainable manner.
- Bio: John Taylor has been an embedded engineer for over 29 years. He has
worked as a firmware engineer, technical lead, system engineer, software
architect, and software development manager for companies such as Ingersoll
Rand, Carrier, Allen-Bradley, Hitachi Telecom, Emerson and several start-up
companies. He has developed firmware for products that include HVAC control
systems, telecom SONET nodes, IoT devices, microcode for communication chips,
and medical devices. He is the coauthor of five US patents and holds a
bachelor degree in mathematics and computer science. John is currently working
on medical devices in the Atlanta area.
