Earlier this year I set out on a quest be become more proficient in C and C++ programming (see What's the best C/C++ course for someone like me? and Which coding standard is best for embedded software? ).
Eventually, I decided to kick off by polishing my existing (although admittedly meager) C programming skills. Having said this, sketches and libraries for Arduino microcontroller development systems, which I'm using in my hobby projects, tend to be written as a mixture of C and C++, and I often find myself scratching my head over a piece of C++ syntax.
So you can only imagine my surprise and delight to receive an email from my chums at the Barr Group telling me that they are going to be hosting a free 1-hour webinar — Getting Started with C++ in Embedded Systems — starting at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time on Tuesday, June 7, 2016.
According to the event information: “C++ is available for most embedded targets, yet the adoption rate remains low. This webinar seeks to remedy that by providing super practical information you can put into practice immediately. We will move quickly from dispelling common C++ myths and identifying some key C++ benefits to a set of practical tips and tricks to help you put C++ to the most effective use in your 'first month' and 'first year.'”
The instructional portion of this webinar will take about 50 minutes, following which there will be a window for us all to ask questions… and I have lots of questions. I don’t know about you, but I need all the help I can get, so I just signed up — maybe I'll “see” you there (I'll be the one in the Hawaiian shirt LOL).
