My year on embedded: top 10 reads

So as LinkedIn told me that I’d completed my one-year anniversary as Editor-in-chief of, I decided to take a look at what people have been reading on the site over the last year.

What I have learned is that tutorial articles are really popular. From our archives from 2001, we consistently see reference materials, such as ’Modular programming in C’, and ‘Introduction to watchdog timers’, being the top read articles. Beyond these timeless references, what are visitors reading?

Here are the top 10 most read over the last 12 months (ie: until 31st March 2021). And for comparison, I’ve also added the top 10 during the month of March 2021.
